Thanks for the wonderful page you've set up. I am so happy to be a part of the Hearts movement - I'd love to meet some of our new heart makers. I've been missing in action for a little while and am starting to come back (slowly). Please feel free to introduce yourselves so I can get to know you.

I live:
in East Tennessee (though not from here originally I've been here 14 years and love it)
My family:
I have a husband who served in the US Army and is a disabled Vet (who I'm very proud of), a 17 year old step son and a 4 year old daughter
My other passions:
I love to garden, read, cook and create anything I can think up
My blog: is brand new and a work in progress

A Guide to Team Tags

Things to Know about Team Tags:

  • To be recognized officially as an Etsy Team tag, the Team tag must have the word "team" in it. It can be a separate word, or altogether as one word, but it must contain "team".
  • Do NOT use a Team's tag unless you are sure you are a member of the Team whose tag you wish to use.

How to Use Your Team Tag:

  • Include the Team Tag on promotional items your Team makes.
  • Post links to a search for the tag on other sites, like your Team's website, your personal blog, social networking sites, etc.
  • Tell visitors to your shop to search for your Team's tag in your Profile or Shop Announcement!
  • In your Note to Buyer, include a note about the Team Tag.
  • The best Team tags are easy to remember, include the word "team", and are words or phrases that aren't currently used as tags for other items.

Let TRADE our products on Etsy

Trading products on Etsy

My first reaction when I heard, then read, about trading was - REALLY? We don't have to send money?
it seemed strange...

Here is how:
In, etsians can choose products they have to trade and find others that want to trade.
1) sign up for an account,
2) add the shop you want to trade with
3) finalized transaction in etsy
4) at check out : click method of payment. Ideally "other" is an available option. If not click on payment method available
5) type a message mentioning the trade of products as agreed.
6) etsy registers this as a sale and charges the fees associated with the sale to the partners' respective accounts
7) in YOUR Etsy go to sold (orders) and
8) click on "got payment" for the traded product
9) both partners ship their products and incur the cost of shipping (most often the shipping cost is identical)
10) the sale is posted in both stores
11) feedback is posted in both stores
Since then I realized that a few convos agreeing on the trade are often enough to agree on the trade.
I have clicked on paypal before and only sent the product (no payment)
I have payed for shipping myself and the partner of the trade will also have to pay for shipment.

Trading it is a GREAT way to get sales up and feedback perfect for a store. In the process I find that a relationship is born with the partner which is a comforting by-product of a trade - after all isn't Etsy all about building a community?

I hope this helps give comfort for future trades. PLEASE be advised that this post is not to be taken as the norm for trading. I strongly recommend you clarify with each trading partner what is their preferred method!

Good luck!

talk about PACKAGING!

this is my convo to PumpkinHaus


I got my heart...I love it, the color combination!...But i can't part with the packaging so it's not yet hanging on a coat!

Your packaging (PumpkinHaus) and NolaMiadesigns' gave me a new idea: a way to connect the team - discuss how to package our products to get a huge warm feeling inside our buyers when they receive/open our packages...would you be interested in sharing with us how you've come up with your packaging idea?

Let me know,
