Welcome to the first ever 
Handmade Shop Hop!!




I was very excited to see the opening of nearly 30 new etsy shops in my online class, Crafting A Handmade Business on Etsy! Every 6-12 weeks some of the shop owners will be hopping together to get the word out about their new shops. I am really excited that within just a couple weeks of the class ending, we already have some fabulous shops filled with wonderfully creative handmade wares!!!

Please join me in supporting these new shops:


Rilla Bee

Sapphire Notables

Hydrangea Hippo (okay, not so new :))


And what is a “Hop” without a giveaway? 

I will be giving away two $25 gift certificates to Hydrangea Hippo to celebrate the opening of these two shops!! Winners will be drawn on Monday April 23, 2012.

Please do the following to enter and show your support of these shops:
  • Visit each shop on the list and come back here and leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite item from each shop!
