Adoption Fundraiser - Help me advertise, please!

Hello...

Just wanted to pitch an idea out to you guys. I actually need your help. All of you that know me know that I am crafty and pretty creative so I have decided to use my talents in hopes to earn some money for our adoption expenses.(Seeing as I don't have time for two jobs!)

I have sold things on ebay previously but since what I make is handmade it is more appreciated on Etsy. So with that said - I have opened at Etsy shop to sell my crafty things. There are a few main categories of things and more things will be added this weekend when I have more time to take pictures and post. I have a wide variety of things that will be on there soon. So please give me a shameless advertisement on your blog or forward my link to people that you may know who would be interested in things for their kids, especially girls.

You can check out my site and forward accordingly. I am looking forward to my first sale and I need help getting the word out. We only have a few thousands of dollars to raise so any plug would be greatly appreciated. Go to etsy.com and type in thepolkadottedpalm under username/sellername. (You can also go to www.thepolkadottedpalm.etsy.com)I am going to do a mass email this weekend so you may get this info again this weekend. Who knows...I could be world famous or not sell a thing but I thought I would give it a shot.

Your products are so cute! While I don't know how helpful it will be, I'll put a link on my blog.

hi! just came across your post - we have a group on facebook called 'affording international adoption' - there is a place to post your fundraisers & blogs & we have lots of supportive people on our group - maybe it will help? =) couldn't hurt!

Have you sold any?? I had no idea you were doing this! That's awesome, and you are definitely crafty enough to sell stuff! Sorry that I've been absent from the blog... I lost the link when my laptop was ruined and I had to wait for my new one and then get the link from mom. Anyway, the point being, how's the craft selling business???

Hey Alicia,

Glad you got linked back up with us. How is the new laptop? I have not sold a thing. I know so may people raising money this way but not I. I am patiently waiting or at least waiting! :)
