Look what's happening this week around the handmade and crafty web sites... clip art images, contests, crochet tips and free patterns, etc...

I was browsing around and checking emails this morning, only to find some awesome new ideas, links, and fantastic contests that I thought you would all love to check out, too!

Some really unique bangle bracelets up for grabs here:

Time for the Fall Giveaway! Win one of three comfy...

Now for my friends who are addicted to yarn (and crochet)- About. com has opened up the forum for you to add your thoughts on some different techniques! Also, a ton of free patterns that are really unique and different! Getting my needles out tonight to get busy with them...


Foundation Row – Your Opinion

Here is a great collection of some freebie Thanksgiving clip art you can use for your projects or just to get in the Holiday spirit! Check out this well put together list at:

PS if you did not know it, you can subscribe to the feed from the above site so you can get the latest articles and tips from some of your favorite writers!



Oh... and here is just a great idea! some fun crochet clip art designs that would make very cool cards for your craft loving friends!

Crochet Life: Clip and Catch up

So, that is what I have explored this evening... Do you have something you would love to share- comment with your url or link! Feel free to comment, email, or hop over to my website and sign the guestbook- I am always giving something away or adding new sites to my list of links and buttons!



I wanted to show off a few new items I just added to my shop, also! I started each project with a basic pattern that I either found on the web or that I purchased from my favorite Etsy shop, and then I just added my own finishing techniques, twists, turns, or stitches! What do you think?

Make sure you come back this week as I start my "Mommy's Marketing for the Holidays" series with tips, links, and creative ways to help you market yourself and product for the holidays! Sell on Etsy? Artfire? Did you know they both feed to google differently and that the keywords needed to move you up to the top are completely different? I didn't either, but I do now and my visits have increased over 15% since I made a few simple changes... Come back to see what you can do to turn visits into sales, too!
