Getting 2010 On

After a sleepy start to the year, 2010 woke up and it seems there’s a lot coming up in the next few days and weeks!

January marks the anniversary of my join dates on Etsy for both of my shops and the anniversary of the date I began selling on ArtFire: 3, 2 & 1 years respectively. It’s been a wild time!

For a bit of a change I’m going to tuck free gifts into all of my ArtFire and Etsy packages going out until the end of the month. The gifts will vary from extra beads, canes, jewelry, coupons for discounts or free shipping.

Subscribers to my newsletter will get an extra bonus as I finally get it rolling! To subscribe simply pop your email into the widget on the right or drop me an email with the word subscribe in the subject line and/or body.

One of the most insanely energetic and cheerful Canadian artists I’ve had the fortune to meet in my journey on Etsy is Kristal of RikRak Studio. She’ll be holding a big Olympic themed giveaway on her blog in the coming weeks. From the response of us sponsors, there are going to be a TON of fabulous prizes! The giveaway will be based on Olympic events and run for six weeks. Keep an here and there for updates.

In 2009 I saw some of the One World One Heart postings but didn’t participate. The goal of the project is to encourage bloggers from around the world to reach out and meet others that they might not meet normally.

Bloggers offer giveaways on their blog to entice commenters and people spend a few weeks visiting the giant compilation of links on Whimsical Bohemian’s blog. The event begins January 25th and runs until February 15th.
