I just signed up on Artfire

ArtFire - Buy Handmade - Sell Handmade

If you have been thinking of signing up for Artfire...
Please, please use my "gypsygoods" Link.
I added it to my right sidebar, too. I signed up through one of my Team members links and I was hoping that I would be able to find 10 friends that would help me out.

Artfire is $7 a month (for a limited time and then the price goes up).
If you are renewing your listings everyday on Etsy (It really adds up fast or if you have ever had your own website, the carts and hosting is much more than that)...I was interested as soon as I saw a screenshots of all of the stats that they provide.

From their website:

Verified Members Get Unlimited Listings with Zero Fees
Our verified status is a great deal at the normal price of US $20.00/month.
You’ll get all of the functionality of a website with great features like stats, your own sub-domain name, currency conversions and much more.

For life? Really? As long as you don't stop your monthly subscription your monthly cost is US $7.00 a month - forever. If you suspend service that price will not be available anymore. But the recurring fee if you stay with us will always be US $7.00 per month.

I am thinking of a creative bribe here for the referrals...maybe a prize/PIFs would be in order for those of you that add me GypsyGoods as your referral and sign up with a verified account.
...What do you think??? ...What would it take?
What kind of pretties? ...Buttons??? ... Earrings??? ...Gift certificate to my shops??? I make a wide variety of things...I will have to put my thinking cap on... Give me some ideas!
I will keep checking for referral credits and if you have used my shop and I don't see it..Please contact me! I have heard that it takes some time to get the credit (they verify that it is a real shop first).
...Leave a comment here on my blog or
convo me (Alteredevents or GypsyGoods)
Send me a message on Artfire (GypsyGoods)!!!

Featured: The Filigree Garden

The peaceful colors in this handmade ceramic pendant inspire a sense of zen-like calm. Aqua blues, lime green and jonquil yellows float over its textured surface and are reflected in the coordinating beads that wind up the vintage brass chain. Aqua twist oval glass beads are vintage; small rounds and translucent yellow flowers are Czech glass. A one-of-a-kind design.

Necklace measures almost 19" (48.25 cm) without the pendant, which is 1 3/8" (3.5 cm) in diameter. Necklace closes with a small brass-toned toggle clasp. Necklace can be shortened if desired. Please contact me when purchasing if you need a different length.

Pendant was handmade by Maine artisan Winchell Clay Works. http://www.WinchellClayWorks.etsy.com
Magical and ethereal flowers bloom in the faerie garden. This handmade polymer clay flower pod pendant drips with dew made of silver-wrapped Czech glass beads in amethyst and clear vintage Czech crystals. The pod's stem is made of a pewter melon bead and wrapped sterling wire. A flowery antique silver toggle clasp blooms just above the pod.

Vining up from the pendant are Czech glass leaves and flowers in green with an AB shimmer, small Czech rounds in olivine with silver petal caps, a silver toned metal flower bead, and very unique rectangular, floral Czech glass beads in a blue-raspberry hue. The garden is suspended from a delicate sterling chain.

Necklace measures 18" (45 cm) to the clasp. The pendant drops down another 2" (5 cm).

Polymer clay flower pendant is handmade by Zuda Gay at Etsy. http://www.ZudaGay.etsy.com

Absolutely one-of-a-kind!

It's Whats On The Inside...that counts the most


Thank You..
Deep Blue C for adding my body Parts buttons to your fantastic treasury!

Etsy Teams

Are you an Etsy seller?
Trying to get exposure for your shop?

Check out the Etsy Team Profiles
and find a team that fits your needs. There are global and local teams....

Check out any groups well before joining. I have all had some negative dealings with individuals selling themselves as honest (Christian) folks. Don't like anyone using God in that manner. I deleted quite a few posts on this blog that were connected a couple that created a group and under the disguise of promoting....cheated people out of their hard earned money. Raising funds for Charity, Surgery and Ad Time and Space.
BE VERY CAREFUL out there....

We should all be there to support one other and not compete with each other (we are all unique and have unique talents and gifts to offer).

Sassa Lynne Treasury

Thank You....
