Now that I’ve got the SEO figured out a little bit, I can focus on other aspects of social media.
Last week I learned about Handmade Hour on Twitter! It is a 2 hour time slot every Wednesday from 11:30 PST to 1:30 PST, in which you tweet your listings and store with the #handmadehour. I didn’t know until yesterday though, that that Handmade hour is for the UK! They then created a US Handmadehour that is every Wednesday from 4:00 PST to 5:00 PST. They are so kind that whether you are in the US or the UK you are welcome to join both. I can best describe this as a living magazine where artisans and crafters can both see new product and share theirs. In the US Handmade hour you tweet #HandmadehourUSA with your listing
It is a lot of fun, and you get to see some very wonderful crafts.
Also, just yesterday, I got my very first custom order! Recently I purchased a Fiskars alphabet stamp so I could create custom sentiments, and had only just put the ‘custom order’ button on my etsy shop.
It was a really cute idea to have a bookmark with the sentiment, ‘The Suspense is Killing Me!’
Thankfully I had the unique type writer letters to make this bookmark really stand out. Unfortunately, those letters are difficult to get, so this card is one of a kind!
I did recreate the bookmark without the type writer letters. The sentiment was just so fun I had to make more with it!
I plan to create more of this bookmark in several different colors and styles. I’m also working on several more classic quotes.
What are some of your favorite book quotes? What about favorite books? I may also create bookmarks with book titles. But all of the book quotes and titles have to be public domain, or a book before 1923. I will not infringe on copyrights.
Well, it’s off to the craft desk!
