Saturday Link List...moved to Sunday this week

Things got thrown off at the end of this month because of the design team post, but I didn't want to skip this.  Welcome to this week's edition of my link list!  Enjoy!

For those of you who enjoy Carol's (SandFibers) work and are also beadweavers, take advantage of this free pattern of hers.  If you don't beadweave, Carol's work is so gorgeous that it will inspire you to start.

If you've been a part of the Etsy community and have been proactive about learning how to improve your shop, hopefully you've already read (and are doing) at least a few of the tips here.  It is fairly lengthy and covers a lot of topics so there may be something new for you.  It's FREE so take a peak.

I have mentioned foodgawker before.  I'm sure that I'll mention it again.  Craftgawker is one of their sister sites (yes, there are more, too, that I've never even dared to peak at).  In case you needed another crafty site to frequent, right?  There is an application process for this site so all of the tutorials and photos are pretty high quality.  I get inspired just looking at what's on the front page.

Now that I post the vast majority of my Tweets directly from Facebook (unless I'm replying directly to someone else's message), I don't use these tool much.  However, if you post URLs to Twitter or other sites where you don't want extra characters, this is a great way to shorten the links.

Hopefully someone else reading this enjoys chocolate covered pretzels as much as I do.  This recipe is very straight forward.  I love the idea of using mini chocolate chips to add detail.

Did you use one of the resources, tutorials, or recipes from my link list?  Leave me a link in the comments or send me an e-mail ( with your photos and stories.  I would love to post them here!


  1. Great link list again Rose! The chocolate pretzels looks yummy!

  2. Tons of great links here! Love the Free Etsy Tips and Tiny URL. I haven't been on CraftGawker for a while...thanks for the reminder.

  3. love your link list! I'm going to look at craftgawker (though I'm not up to another online store) and I'm always into learning more about etsy! {:-D


Your comments mean so much to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts, questions, and feedback.
