Just a quick update on the status of our crafts directory and a big 'Thank you' to our recent listings. It has been three weeks since the launch of the directory and things are going fantastically well! So far we have 27 crafters listed in the directory and have so far raised £128 for the nominated charities + £19.46 gift aid. The donations are nicely spread across all the charities, which is also a very good sign. I have also today added a new charity to the list, 'Cats Protection' as requested by a fellow crafter on Twitter.
I was also asked today if one person can list more than one shop...the answer is YES! You can list your website, blog, plus any shops like etsy or folksy as separate listings (as long as you make separate donations to charities). Please also try to make the listing descriptions and titles different for each entry and that will enable each listing to rank better in search engines.
The following craft sites have listed their details in the directory since I last blogged so a huge welcome and Thank you to them!
The first Thank you goes to Expressorize Ure Self and their Misi shop containing handmade quality jewellery & accessories.
The second Thank you goes to Pixie Posy Tiaras and their Misi shop containing handmade bridal and special occasion accessories.
The third Thank you goes to Satoko's Origami Jewellery and their handmade jewellery inspired by the Japanese art of Origami.
The fourth Thank you goes to Blue Fish Handmade and their Folksy shop containing beautiful crochet jewellery and accessories.
The fifth Thank you goes to Mmmm Bath Melts and their Folksy shop provide luxurious, handmade bath melts, all using natural ingredients.
The sixth Thank you goes to Cholcolat A Toi and their personalised chocolate bars, for weddings, a new baby, or a special occasion.
The seventh Thank you goes to Nithria and their land of handmade craft that provide a range of jewellery and cards for all occasions.
Wow! I have finally managed to catch up with all the Thank you's. Many thanks to everyone who is promoting the website and I look forward to welcoming many more crafters next week!
