please read! {Big Changes!}

As I'm sure you have noticed - the blog has a new look ... and ... a new name!

Why the change?
Well, for sometime now, I have been seeing more and more "handemade-preneurs" selling from their own, independent websites as well as shops hosted by sites other than just etsy. (i.e. bigcartel)

I love Etsy - but I have encountered confusion from some shop-owners - who felt that they could not be featured on the blog; because they did not use etsy to sell their products.
The content will not really change: still lots of great shops & products - and plenty of chances to win!

Beginning as of Monday, November 8th - the blog will also have a new URL.
etsyitup.blogspot.com will become...


(but, if you type in etsyitup.blogspot.com - you will be redirected)

I am so excited about the new look! Danielle, The Design Girl, did an amazing job!  
*come back Monday for a chance to win design service from Danielle. (- :
