I'm starting a link party with two of my blogging friends! For a long time, I've been a participant in link parties when I create something and share it on my blog. Link parties are a great way to share craft projects and see what other creative folks are doing around the web. My friend Tamara at Etcetorize has asked my friend Donna at Distressed Donna Down Home and me to join her in hosting a weekly Monday link party beginning September 8th! Tamara is a link party veteran, so you might recognize her.
To generate excitement for our first party, we are offering some prizes. If you enter our first party on September 8th, you will be eligible to win one of six prizes, including gift certificates to our Etsy shops,
I'm also participating in a fun online antique show called the Vintage Weekend. Organized by antique dealer extraordinaire Mitzi Swisher of The Vintage List fame, dealers will have their wares in TicTail shops, an online selling venue that's similar to Etsy. I'll post a reminder and link during the show weekend.
Last but not least, I want to mention that the shop where my mom sells her antiques, Up for Grabs in Naples, Florida, has expanded and is looking better than ever! They now have a website that you can visit HERE. They used to have two separate storefronts, Up for Grabs and Up for Grabs Too, but now they've consolidated into one large store and it looks fabulous! When owner Cathy Goodman does something, she does it right.....
