We always love hearing about the experiences makers have with different promotional opportunities. Recently you've probably seen a lot of makers posting about voting for them in the Martha Stewart American Made contest. If you've done it in previous years, it seems like they've changed it up a bit this year. Pei from Austin's p.s Paper Shoppe wanted to share what her experience has been so far as a nominee and now a finalist.
One of the Academy's earliest cheerleaders was Rosalie Gale. She's a rad lady from Seattle who is managing multiple businesses. One of those businesses is Unanimous Craft, a site which aims to help the crafty community in all sorts of ways. The site recently changed things up a little for how it's run, so we thought this would be a great time to ask Rosalie what's happening and how makers can best use the site.
We always love seeing the color trends that Pantone picks out for each season. The purply reddish hues for Fall 2014 was a color palette that we dare say is almost perennial! We picked out a few our favorite member products that fell nicely into this palette. Enjoy and be inspired!
