Hoot Suite for Twitter- Love It!

Once again I've been neglecting my blog; I haven't abandoned it totally though! Twitter is an interesting thing to me, this time last year, I had NO idea how to use it or what "retweet" meant. Now that I do, I'm fascinated by it and am amazed by how fun it can be.
One tip I found incredibly helpful for my Etsy shop was a recent article on the Handmade Spark blog about setting up automatic tweets from Hoot Suite. It's so helpful for scheduling future tweets, but my favorite part is how you can set it up to automatically tweet your newest listings!
I try to list something new, or renew an item once a day, so I won't bug people with frequent updates since I don't add things all the time. It's especially helpful for me because I post my new item links on a few threads I frequent on the Etsy forums, this is one less place I have to worry about doing so since it does it for me!

To read the article yourself and get step by step instructions on how to do it yourself, just click below, hope it helps you like it did for me!

Ice Cream Pins on Must Have Cute!

I submitted my mini ice cream pins a long time ago to this website, Must Have Cute, and I never heard anything or saw them on the "finds" page so I figured they weren't accepted.
Well lo and behold, I was on the site's voting page today and saw them waaaay back on page 18! As more items are added, they'll move further down, but for now they're on page 18. Please check them out and give them a "thumbs up!"


UPDATE as of 9/28: You can vote from here instead! http://cheezburger.com/View/3231431680

Two More Treasury Easts!

I love finding my items in Treasuries when I'm not expecting it, and it's so fun as well when they're made by people I don't know. It means I'm being found!
Here are the two latest I've been featured in....

Junk Food pins are in this fun "Diet Food" collection:

And my baby whale pin is in this great "One Fish Two Fish" grouping:

Yay and thank you to the curators!
