Well, it has finally arrived ETSY TRASHION TRUNK SHOW DAY!!! I will only be able to attend via computer but have sent items to be sold - see my Flickr Post to see what went to New York -- and now I anxiously await the time for everything to start.

Now is a great time to for me (and everyone else participating) to thank all those who worked so hard to make this event happen and who promoted the heck out of it. Being around all these creative minds is very invigorating even when it is 'just' a computer association.

Watch for more great things from this team -- they have snagged at least 4 Etsy treasuries, a Etsy showcase spot, a featured place on the Etsy Home Page and so many other great things I don't even remember them all.

So let's all shop Trashion, recycle, upcycle and make our world an even better place with less trash blowing in the wind and filling up the landfills.

It is free to join and they have a specific blog that focuses on home businesses that welcomes Etsy stores participation. Here is the link so look it over, then join and promote, promote, promote. The more we have our name out there the more people we will drive to our stores.

Added a Flickr page

Hi Everyone.

Since others on Etsy have been talking about their Flickr page I decided to add one to my different efforts. Here is the link . I've been using it to showcase the items I've made for the upcoming Etsy Trashion Trunk Show on July 27th being held in New York City. I can't be there but some of my projects will be. SweetyPrize has offered to sell some things for me and I am contributing to the swag bags (see sample of the cards I'm sending in picture above) that are being given away at the Trunk Show. I will also send some ACEO kits so people can take something home and create a 'Trashion' project.
