Panopoly: Ceramic art and craft, by Lynae Zebest

Oh Happy Day!

I’ve been trying to get more stuff done along the lines of networking and promotion lately, and it seems to be working pretty well. I recently joined the SF Etsy Street Team and have retagged all my handmade items to include “sfetsy team” in the title.

Oh, and as you can see, I’ve made a new banner for here, as well as for my shop and Etsy user icon, to more correctly represent current crafty focus. (Nice alliteration, huh?)

Meanwhile I recently made an Alchemy request for some new skincare products, and I couldn’t believe the outpouring of responses I got. Not just bids, but just general Conversations from other Etsy users about things that had worked for them. It was really awesome and reminded me about how much I like the Etsy community as a whole. I ended up accepting bids from Swan Mountain Soaps, Tamara’s Herbs (I also got a sample of her Hair Therapy product), Greenberry Soaps and Botanicals, Unico’s Cauldron, and am currently figuring out exactly what I want from Parrot Feathers. I’ll be sure and let y’all know how all that turns out!

So, I’m kind of saving the best news for last, but–I just found out that my Weathered Green Handmade Ceramic Shank Buttons are getting featured in tomorrow’s Etsy Finds e-mail! I’ve never gotten publicity on that scale before, so I’m mega-excited. Yay!
