October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You can help out by listing your no longer needed items on eBay and have the monies go to various breast cancer organizations. Here's more info. about listing your items on eBay and setting up the monies to go to charity http://donations.ebay.com/charity/event.jsp?NP_ID=-3.
Below is a FREE auction template for you to help make people more away of your cause when listing!
I've discovered a wonderful site that is FREE for artisans and crafters called ArtFire. You may list up to 12 items for FREE. It's cool because you set up an actual shop. Another selling venue is Winkelf. Its free to list your items, with a small percentage of your final sales price. I have a special on both of these sites...buy two bottle cap art sets and get the third one FREE. All you have to do is to put in the message section of your PayPal checkout which set you would like as your freebie.
Some of you may be reading this and wondering wondering, "What the heck is bottle cap art?" Well, my art it's a collage of 1" circles images in a 4" x 6" format. It is a high resolution JPEG, that one can purchase and print themselves or copy the image onto a CD and take down to the local photo lab, such as Wal-mart, Walgreens, etc. and have them printed on photo paper. What do you do with these images? You can make bottle cap jewelry. Here's a great "How to Make Bottle Cap Charms" I came across while doing a search on the internet.
Another fun thing to do with these is to print them out on sticker paper and let the kids have fun being creative.
For those of you who are not familiar with Etsy Alchemy feature, it's a way for people to request items or services needed. Recently, I put in a bid for a fellow Etsy designer who need a new blog header and Etsy banner and avatar for her shop. Yeah, my bid was selected! She was awesome! She told me exactly what she wanted and even supplied me with some of the graphics. Above is what I came up with. If you are ready to set up your Etsy Shop or want a new look to your existing blog, shop, website...please convo me through my Etys shop.
