Article: Welcome to the "New" EtsyGreetings blog

By now you've probably noticed that the EtsyGreetings blog has made a few changes. With the help and feedback from all of our members and the hardwork, planning and organizing of some volunteers- under the guidance of our fearless cooridinator ahna of LuckyDuckDesign- we're happy to bring you a new "us." It was a much- needed makeover (our facelift procedure is scheduled, so be on the look out for an even new "us" coming soon! we promise to hide any stitches) and we're pretty darn happy with ourselves.

On Tuesdays, look for HandmadeByLinda to post a treasuy. This is our little spin on the Etsy treasury. One of our fabulous members will either share a treasury they were able to snag on Etsy, or create their own.

Fridays, SouthernScraps will feature one of the EtsyGreetings members. Think of it as something similar to the Etsy featured seller, but honestly, we're a little bias and will be talking about the ones we love best- our members.

Throughout the week,PinkyCreations and myself, FiveDot, will be posting articles that other team members (and sometimes ourselves!) have written. We've decided that we would like to share a few of our secrets with you... where we draw inspiration, what we do in our spare time and tips on how to run your business successfully- just to name a few.

Once a month, PinkyCreations will also be posting a challenge. She will be throwing out a theme and asking members to create with this theme in mind. All the items that are going to be entered into the challenge will be specifically tagged and then all of you will have a chance to vote on your favorite! Look for the poll to show up in the second half of the month and then vote until your heart is content!

will most likely be your favorite poster of all... the Giveaway lady! Sometime in between all these other lovely post, she will be posting a Giveaway hosted by one of our generous members. Just follow the giveaway directions and who knows- you just might win!

We're not sticking to a tight schedule, so be sure to subscribe to our feed (if you don't already) to make sure you don't miss a thing! We encourage you, as readers, to comment on posts and let us know how we're doing! We want this blog to be beneficial to you and we want this to inspire and encourage you to create wonderful pieces! All of us are just bubbling over the sides with ideas and information we want to share with you, so sit back and enjoy!
