Happy 500!

Hold on to your hats, ladies and gents! SF Etsy has hit 500 blog posts!
Hip hip hooray!  Bring on the confetti, please!
HAPPY 500th Post, SF Etsy!

Your hard-working SF Etsy Blog Team along with our fearless SF Etsy Team Co-Captains would like to thank you for the amazing memories and the many more to come! You've helped this team grow exponentially giving us non-stop excitement and wonderfully interesting content. 

"Hey Guys! I'm SO excited and proud that we've come this far on the blog.
Our team is stronger and more connected because of our blog – it's the hot glue gun that connects all of us online! That sounds cheesy, but it's true! Think of all the creative projects you've been inspired to make from the blog, or the countless craft shows you've been notified about...or gotten to see behind the scenes of. This blog is a wonderful example of how truly creative, inspiring, intelligent and RAD we are! This year, you'll expect to see even more great things from us as we strengthen our online presence even more on the blog, Facebook and Twitter as well as start to bond outside of Etsy and the web through workshops, Meet-Ups and Etsy events."
- Katy Atchison, Co-Captain of SF Etsy Team

"Being part of a community is always a good way to make sure you succeed and grow. Being part of THIS community of creative entrepreneurs has made the journey to success & the process of growth all the more interesting and inspiring. 
Thank you for sharing your thoughts at local shows, for contributing to our discussions and for enriching our collective bank of knowledge, SF Etsy. Your consistent willingness to be awesome has helped WAY MORE humans than you may have realized. So let's celebrate US!"
- Steph Cortes of nerd JERK, Co-Captain of SF Etsy Team

To show our gratitude, we've put together some super-fun FREE printables inspired by your creativity and geared toward what you've been asking us for! 

 Remember these from when you were a kid? Predict your creative future with this fun SF Etsy Inspiration Fortune Teller!  Designed by SF Etsy leader Ash of Kelly Drive.
Print this and bring it to the Opening Reception of our Team Art Show on May 12th for a fun icebreaker!

Print this ATC Envelope template to house your Artists Trading Cards during our Team Meet-Up on May 24th.
We're a busy bunch! I dunno about you, but I can't hardly keep up with my own life, let alone our Etsy lives! I make lists to keep track of everything...hope this helps you keep track of everything, too!
Keep up with your busy schedule by using this handy to-do list!

To print any of the free graphics in this post, simply left click on the printable. When the shadow box pops open, right click on the image and select "open image in new tab". When the new tab opens, magnify the image to its largest, actual size, then right click on the image and choose "save image as...". Save to your desktop and print, print, print! (Make sure to turn off your margins so your printer doesn't cut off any of the good stuff!) 

If you're an Etsy seller in the San Francisco Bay Area, contact Katy or Steph about joining SFEtsy!
