I am loving the craft out of the new Store Share feature that Etsy just added to the Store App. Etsy has updated their app to include a super fast way to blast your wares all over social media. Every lady or gent, who has hearted your store, will receive these clever updates in their feed. What's not to love? I'm giving it 20 thumbs up because it's so easy to use and a great way to promote your wares. You can share all of your creations as well as your customers images (if they give you permission of course). No need to download a new app, it is already waiting for you on your Etsy store app. Look in your account and then find Shop Updates. It has a little camera icon next to it.
It is a new tool in the Sell on Etsy app that makes it easy for you to market your shop on both social media and Etsy. With Shop Updates, you can upload a photo, tag it with a listing from your shop, then share it across all of your social channels without leaving the Sell on Etsy app. The new Shop Updates feature will make it easier to drive traffic from social media back your Etsy shop. Shop Updates will appear on your shop home page, the Etsy app and on social media.

I love, love, love craft and handmade apps for my iphone and ipad. This one is super cute and is great when you are lacking insperation for your next craft project.
The apps are seasonal which is handy for me. I live where it's pretty much summer all year round. Who am I kidding, it is summer all year round. We are currenlty in the middle of winter and it's a balmy 33 degree's out.
Anyhoo, check this app out or buy the book.

I have to be so careful when I log into this site. It is full of so many things I seriously need in my life, opposed to just want. If you need great fonts, brushes, images, themes or anything to do with graphics in general, this is where you need to hang out.
Create an account and check in often as they have freebies available on a weekly basis. All your goodies are saved in your account and are available to download any time you need them.
The best part, you are supporting creative designers.
