  1. OceansideCreations.blogspot.com- I am an Etsy seller (OceansideCreations) looking for artists to feature on my blog with giveaways.
    -Giveaway prize can be something representing your work or a gift certificate to your shop- about a $20 value for either.
    -I do giveaways on a weekly basis, usually Fridays, which run for a week. Seller is responsible for shipping the prize or redeeming gift certificate at end of giveaway. I will conduct giveaway, choose and notify winner.
    -If interested please convo me through my shop http://oceansidecreations.etsy.com. I will send you interview questions if I choose to feature your shop.
    -Currently, I am only featuring Etsy artists. I will consider any type of work and love to discover new shops and get to know my fellow Etsians.

  2. My blog is: Audrey's Give Away Blog (http://audreyscountrycraftsgiveaway.blogspot.com). I am looking for crafters/artists who would like to have a feature/give away.
    * Each shop is asked to write about 3-4 short paragraphs on themselves, their shop, what they do, where they are from, what/who inspires them etc. Three pictures from the shop will be included along with a picture of the give away prize. The shipping of the prize is up to the shop donating it.
    * There are usually anywhere from 60-150 people entering each give away. They are asked to go to the shop and pick their favorite item, come back to my blog with the link. That way you get traffic to your shop and hopefully they return to make a purchase one day.
    * Anyone interested in having a give away can contact me via email (link on my blog) or through my etsy shop: audreyscountrycrafts
    * I am interested in any hand made products! You do not have to have an Etsy shop, I am open to any crafter/artist.
    * The give aways run for 1 week, sat - sat usually.
