It’s my job to keep you all in the know and know you shall. The Moms Basement team on Etsy has grown to an impressive (almost) 400 members! This is SO EXCITING! ( Not bad for only being created 4 months ago!) For those of you who do not know what an Etsy team is.. let me explain. Etsy is the handmade marketplace that allows you to own your own store, market your items, favorite other shops and connect with other handmade crafters, and buyers. You do not need to be a crafter to join Etsy. If you enjoy buying handmade ( take the handmade pledge ) then you definatley belong. Etsy allows us to create teams so those with similar interests can band together and gain support, bounce ideas off eachother and just be silly. Our Etsy team has been overwhelmingly helpful and amazing since its start. Thank you guys!!!
We have some exciting things going on int his basement, and I want to make sure you guys take advantage of the opprotunities we throw your way. Moms Basement will be the HUB for a new Goody Bag Event. Multiple websites, Geekery crafters and Etsy teams are banding together to donate items that will be placed in awesome grab bags and sent to the lucky winner of that months grab bag event. This is going to showcase the crafters that donated, and give everyone a chance to win a package of awesome prizes. If you would like to participate in our grab bag event, please contact us! Sounds like a sweet deal right? Stay tuned.. and while you wait for that, dont forget to check out the Caption contest. You still have a few days to enter that one. Also, we have a new giveaway up hosted by Stikrz! Who couldn’t use a set of mustache decals? Get in there and enter!
Now, Melvin has been feeling a little left out lately, so you will be seeing him in the near future of our contests. No one needs a sad mascot! ( you will be left with Sad Panda.. Oh, that guy is creepy! ) But, in case you have been wondering where our fearful Melvin has been hiding, he has been super busy traveling around the world! Ive spotted him with Debra, watching Spiderman the musical.. then the next week he was at Kimmies Garage sale! He has been a super busy dude!
We are still looking for a TECH or COMICS writer.. and perhaps someone that could actually DRAW a comic for us. If you or someone you know are interested.. Please contact us for more details!
