Someone posted this site in the Etsy forums and I figure it bares repeating.
Totally Tutorials (http://totallytutorials.blogspot.com/)
What do I do?
The sellers available through this site choose to give certain crafters a selection of their supplies (free) and in return, the crafter will create something with the supplies and then create a tutorial (with pictures).
Why do I care?
As a supply seller:
- The supply seller will get additional blog traffic from their post explaining the exchange.
- The supply seller will have links leading to her shop in the tutorials.
- The supply seller will be allowed to use photos of the finished products in her listings and/or blog and link to the tutorials if she chooses. This will give your potential buyers inspiration on how to use your supplies.
As a crafter:
- The receiver will get something free!
- The receiver will gain blog traffic from having their tutorial posted here.
- The receiver may sell the finished product if they wish.
- The receiver will be introduced to fabulous new supplies to test out at no charge. You might just find some new favorite suppliers.
What is the next steps?
You can find out all of the rules and which sellers are available, right here:
Anyway, I thought this was great place and I wanted to pass it along! Good luck to anyone who tries it!
After reading post after post about starting a Facebook fan page. I finally put one together, which was relatively simple. Right now, the link is:
Apparently, you need to have at least 100 fans before they will allow you to have a personalized URL link like facebook.com/imaginativeintention. So, I'll be attempting to successfully promote it in the near future, so that I can get my custom URL before someone else does!
Anyway, I just wanted to share what I've been doing lately.
- printed off pictures from tutorials, products I like, supplies, etc
Sadly, I've sort of been neglecting my blog lately. It just seems like if its not one thing, it's another. Definitely been keeping me busy and sometimes not so sane! Over the next week, I'm hoping to add another 25 pendants to my shop, so please keep an eye for these new styles!
Soon I hope to be launching 2 different styles of pendants, one using stainless steel and sterling silver, and the other will be made from wood. I'm pretty excited about that but I'm not quite ready to put them in my shop yet!
In the meantime, I wanted to share a set of ceramic tile coasters I made. I saw something similiar on a website but the just the cost of shopping to me was almost $20. So I set my 'little' brain in motion and this is what happened! If anyone wants to know how I did it, feel free to contact me!
