Etsy Stock Take - Week Twenty-five

Etsy Stock Take - Week Twenty-five - Sunday Linky Party

Hi guys,

What have you all been up to this week?

I've been having a lovely creative week! I hosted a craft party at my place yesterday and got some projects finished :)

Today I made the pink silk clutch that I plan to use at a wedding I'm going to next Saturday. And I made a matching fascinator hat, complete with feathers! Look out for photos on the blog soon.

I've neglected my Etsy shop recently, making a lot of stuff for me and family and friends instead... I plan to reactivate it in a big way in the autumn after our adventurous summer!

Oh, and I have a question: Etsy people, would you like me to send you an email to let you know that the Esty Stock Take is live each week? I noticed a lot of bloggers do that, but I'm not sure if it would be a helpful reminder for you or just another spam email? Let me know in the comments section!

So, on to the important stuff...

Shoppers of handmade stuff:

Scroll down for some more beautiful products made by some of my readers. Please visit their shops on Etsy and consider buying something! You'll be glad you did :)

I will list each week's stock take on my Etsy Stock Take page. Please go and have a browse... Also each month I will feature a round up of my favourite items.

Etsy Sellers:
Link up your items to get more exposure for your shop. You might be featured in the next Best of the Month feature :)

You have 2 options:

1. Bloggers:

Write a new post on your blog (telling us about your new items), mention the Etsy Stock Take and link back here so your readers get a chance to find the link up list (or add the button above).

Then link up using the Linky widget (where it says 'click here to enter') at the bottom of this post. Then we can find your blog :)

2. Link up directly to your Etsy shop:  
Post a link that goes directly to your new items in Etsy using the Linky widget (where it says 'click here to enter') at the bottom of this post. You can put up as many as you want and we will see your images nice and big :)

It'd be lovely if you took a moment to go and check out some stuff that others post below - go shopping!

It seems that there have been some difficulties with the Linky widget. If you have problems, please let me know and I will give you a hand (my email).

Let's show our support for each other craftwise! I'm hoping that my goal of listing one item a week will be a powerful motivator and a source of exposure for us all.


Katz :)

  1. A craft party at your house sounds so fun! Your new wedding items sound lovely.
    Thank you so much for featuring my scarf!

  2. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Anyway, I'll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.

  3. Love the featured item this week! Margaret's work is great!

    1. Isn't it just! Thanks for linking up your lovely scrapbook too :)

  4. how neat, you've got quite some linky party going on!!

  5. Love the greens in that scarf!

  6. Thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity to your fellow Etsian proprietors. Your creations are beautiful and I agree 100% with the philosophy. My family stopped buying presents for each other a few years ago. We make our gifts - which can make for some really interesting (and awesome) gifts from my nieces and nephews! I try to buy all of my jewelry supplies from Etsy sellers whenever possible.

    1. Thank you for linking up your lovely jewellery :)

      Good going making gifts, so much more meaningful...


Thanks for your comment! I would love to reply. Due to blogspot's slightly strange setup you'll only get to see my reply if you check back here in a day or two, or if you click on 'subscribe by email' under the comment box. Cheers!
