A labor of love!

I really enjoy working on the gift guide. The real work is done by Wrenay of shopwhimsy.etsy.com as she puts together all the web stuff that I really don't understand. She also reconfigured the design from the holiday guide to give more exposure with 6 items instead of 2 or 3. Wendy of buttercupbloom.etsy.com trades with Wren on curating the gorgeous front pages. Susan of redbessbonney.etsy.com is running the giveaway. Robyn of handcranked.etsy.com writes the press releases. May of ohmay.etsy.com deals with the chatterbox details and the spotlight segments. Marie of designsbymariejulie.etsy.com helps me with the press releases by researching advertising venues. There are a hundred things I left out of the above too.

All ideas are tossed around and around in weekly meetings. Numerous emails are also sent throughtout the wees. In writing this, it sounds very easy. I can assure you it takes an enormous commitment from everyone and it is a team that pulls it all together.

Please continue to promote http://www.handmadeincalifornia.net/ and don't forget to
sign up for the free giveaway. A new item is given away each week so don't forget to come back each week.
