Buy and Replace Treasury - Round 2

Promotional  Frenzy Buy n Replace is now Open

Round 2 : Monday, Oct. 25th - 10AM EST

Strawberry Wine 'N Chocolate

Round 1 was a huge success with 22 sales (18 bought out), and I hear a rumor that this time the goal is 30 sales! All those who were in the last one when it ended will be carried over to this round!

If you enjoy buying into these Treasuries, and you want the opportunity to increase your sales, the Strawberry Wine 'N Chocolate BNR is a must!

Word has it that I was made the first purchase this morning ...   
We create a Treasury (pictorial gallery of 16 items on Etsy) with a variety of sellers. Then you "announce" that you're buying from a specific seller in that treasury. Come back with your transaction link, and we'll put your shop in our treasury in place of the one from which you bought! It's just that easy!

Strawberry Wine 'N Chocolate is hosted by the members of the Promotional Frenzy thread on the Etsy forums. Join us here to group promote on Tuesday nights at 9:00 PM EST and bring your friends!

The Latest and Greatest ... from JQ jewelry designs

Yes, Big IS Beautiful ...

The Neutrals available on Etsy

This new bracelet leaves me feeling anything but Neutral!  Designed to be bold and versatile, these substantial gemstones are of the finest quality and in shades that are equally at home with with that little black dress as with many of the top 10 colors espoused in the Pantone Fashion Color Report  for Fall/Winter 2010.

Transparent and gemmy, the lovely 'rocks' include Quartz of the Bi-color, Whiskey and Cognac variety, Fire Opal and Champagne Citrine.  With such meticulous faceting, this bracelet sparkles and shines on-and-on! 

Equally at home with jeans & a tee OR cashmere and a tweed pencil skirt

Large, meticulously faceted  Fire Opals almost steal the show!


Canyonlands available on Etsy

Another of my new designs is Canyonlands ...   a double-strand bracelet created using Utah Jasper.  This unusual stone comes from un- restricted federal lands in Utah and exhibits beautiful colors and patterns.  These gemstones have a very high polish and wonderful shades of grey, berry, yellow & golds  and ivory. The nuggets have a special drill in that half are drilled lengthwise and the others across the width. Smooth Mookaite rondelles pick up the various shades and are the perfect compliment. Mookaite is also a Jasper and comes from Mooka Creek in Australia.

Update on Paul & Jen's Wedding Plans ...

Breaking news for those keeping up ...

Subject: Mark Your Calendar!

Just wanted to give everyone a head's up for a COUPLES wedding shower on April 9th that Jen's sister-in-law and step-mom are throwing. It's going to be Hawaiian themed, so be prepared to bust out some awesome tropical shirts! Grass skirts optional.

Bill Levkoff - Euro Royal Blue

Jen and her bridesmaids celebrated Wedding Dress Extravaganza Day, and picked out dresses for her Attendants from the Bill Levkoff Collection.  I love the color, and it will be flattering on everyone.  Jen must've tried on 101 gowns, but when she saw THE one, it only took a second to decide! Of course, no photos of the Top Secret wedding gown, not that Paul reads my blog.

Ceramic figurine from ArtMind on Etsy

Looking for New Promotional Opportunities for Your Etsy Shop?

Check out this new, informal group that has started the Promotional Frenzy thread in the Etsy Forums ...  the thread focuses on gaining visibility, building SEO and promoting.  In the words of Alexandre Dumas, the basic premise is "All for one and one for all". The more you give, the more you will get!

If you want to network, and gain visibility for your Etsy Shop this is the thread for you. Participants meet on Tuesday nights at 9pm EST to hold a Promotional Frenzy hour where they promote each other on social networking sites such as twitter, facebook business pages, stumbeupon, kaboodle, flickr etc.  It moves at a mad, crazy pace; thus the name "Frenzy". It's a whole lotta fun and some genuine online friendships have already developed.

There will be 30 minute Promotions - Opportunities for your individual shop to earn 30 minutes of time where the entire thread promotes your shop only.  BNR Treasuries (Buy n Replace) will be held regularly. Treasuries created to highlight those shops that regularly help this thread. Special Events will be announced to mix things up and keep everybody on their toes. 

Participants are encouraged to use their individual Blogs to promote this thread, each other and set up a blog list that links back to their Etsy shops. This creates backlinks to all of the shops.  The more backlinks you have to your shop the more search engines can find your shop and will help your SEO.
