Shame Shame Shame I DON'T Know Your Name!

Such a shame! I twittered today twice asking for some of the 700 people following me to plug themselves or someone they adore in the handmade community so that I could take a peek at their shop and blog about them.

Crickets.

Not one person took me up on the chance to have free advertising tossed their way. Really? Every single time I have someone say that they are looking for people to feature I automatically send that person and email or a direct message. I never pass on the chance for publicity no matter how small they are.

Where's the hunger? Do you not want business? Do you not know of a hidden secret that needs to be raved out? Help a Guru out!

I've been away from the computer all day, otherwise I would have responded!

Here is a little shop that I just love! They make tiny little cute ink stamps. The shop's name is Cupcaketree: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6156194

Oh, another shop that I ADORE is: Chagrin Valley Soaps. I love them because they are a local company (local for me!) and I can actually go to their workshop and pick up my order! AND smell all the wonderful smells of handmade soaps and lotions.

They also own an adorable little mini dachshund! (A total PLUS in my book! It's my favorite breed of dog).

All of their products are wonderful and the website is chock FULL of useful information!!

Check out the rings and wire wrapped items. I am a fan of the tourmaline wrapped flower ring, such intricate details!

I am on the Leadership Team of Etsy Texas Crafters and I found you 1 1/2 weeks ago. I have talked and talked and talked about the Little Black Box! I think people are getting tired of me talking about it!!! I will not stop and I love the concept! I order my first box today and I will be participating in May's box. I will get more to come from ETC-I am sure!!! Blessings!!!!-Cheri

I need a jumpstart, have not added anything to shop for a bit and this would help me.

I also did the November black boxes!

Well, I wish you could plug something of mine but it's not handmade, I'm just a rep for mark. They don't test on animals though and their prices are killer, and I personally do some discounts through my shop. I wish I could be so awesome as to have skills (and moola) to create things though! I always try to buy handmade first but I am addicted to my luxuries ^.^

You could plug my shop.. www.lilsoutherngirl.etsy.com
I could always use some business.. gotta rebuy my oldest.. you know pay for all her medical bills.
Business has been steady but if it were to pick up some more I wouldn't complain.
