Advertistments and Blinkies

In preparation for my June promos, I've send out a forum post for 'volunteers' who would like to get a first sample on a custom advertising button. The response is overwhelming and I am still in the midst of reviewing them. You could read about it here

Here are my first 2 participants -

Luv 2 Have - Unique Handmade Jewelry

Luv 2 Have is a shop filled with beautiful fused glass jewelry pieces. The vast choices and kaleidoscope of colours befits all season, style and occasion. The varieties also makes Luv 2 Have a great place to find that special gift!

Geek Toys - Custom Toys for Geeks

At Geek Toys I found some of the cutetest toys I've seen. It is truly astonishing to find that they are hand made! The attention to detail amazes me as each item has it's own personality. These are wonderful toys for any ages!

More shops to come!

Do you use Project Wonderful?

I just started my Project Wonderful account (right after I successfully created my blinkie) and found that I am totally hooked on it!

Firstly I have always been a computer games junky. Having a personal relationship with the computer was the first thing that got me going with the Etsy shop. I figured if I spent the amount of time on the computer for something that would benefit me in some ways, like learning new things and making some $$ on the side, I would feel like I wasted all this time.

Now come Project Wonderful and I feel totally glued to it! It's almost like a game with all the colourful charts and the goal is to get as many free advertising spots possible. And there is that sense of acheivement when that very free spot is found!

Urm... do you think something is wrong with me? Or are you somehow stuck in a similar situation?

If you have a Project Wonderful space on your blog, please comment so that I could come by and bid on your page!!!

Why so cheap?!

When I realised that most of my customers are 'newbies' and just started their shops, I knew I had to make a line of products that they could buy with confidence and would not feel like it was too big an investment. So I started the $2 dollar bin at my shop.

A shop banner is starting to become a brand identity for most, so why shouldn't this be accessible to a newbie? I've been a newbie before and know exactly how it feels! I hope that this would help all newbie to have confidence in their shops or new found passion!
