Okay, we are going to try to get back on track with our street team!

When we first started this team I was super busy & everyone was going on vacation, getting married or planning a busy summer. Now we are heading into fall & everyone should be back & accounted for, so it's time to get back on track & really put some effort into this Team!

Are you with me Amys?!

  • FIRST - Go Join the Yahoo Group
Because the blog thing didn't work out like I thought it would (if you don't know what I'm talking about, don't worry about it) I started a Yahoo Group called Amys in the Arts. This is what we will use primarily to communicate & organize events.

Please go join the Yahoo Group. If you haven't ever been part of a Yahoo Group before, take a minute to look through links on the sidebar of the group. Everyone needs to go to the Database & fill out the info requested there.

Please take a moment to introduce yourself, tell us a little about your shop, where you are from & what you would like to get out of this street team. Also, if you have any ideas or want to organize any promotion you might mention it now.

  • THIRD - Everyone Fill Out the Databases

After you sign up as an member on the yahoo groupr for the blog, EVERYONE please go to the database for members & ad your info in the fields that apply to you. You will see what I mean. This should get us all caught up on who has completed the Team requirments & who I can add to the 'Amys in the Arts' members list on the Etsy Team page.

  • THIRD - The Blog
Again, since the blog thing didn't work out as I had planned, we are going to change gears on it a little. Everyone who has already signed up to be an author will remain so. I am hoping these people won't mind being volunteered to help me keep the blog updated & announce group activities, treasuries that we snag, ad other teammates Etsy minis & whatever else is note worthy.

If you think you would like to be able to post entries for the team to see here on this blog, please email me at with the email you use to log into blogspot.

Signing up to be an author means you can create posts here & chat with other teammates. Please DO NOT change the format of the blog, the banner or anything else.

After you sign up, please DO add your Etsy mini to the side bar of the blog. Make sure it is just one picture in Gallery format, like the other minis shown.

Also, please note that buy signing up you are agreeing to be professional when posting here. No flaming or deleting other posts or comments. Please play nice & lets use this blog & forums (of sorts) to work together & build our businesses. Any misuse of your author powers will see you removed from the blog & the team. I'm sure this won't be an issue but I just wanna put it out there.

I am free for the next several days & taking care of these new changes & team updates will be at the top of my list of priorities.

For those of you who convoed or emailed me about the Team & are just now hearing back from me, I'm sorry for the delay. I've had several family emergencies (my granny was diagnosed with cancer & my dad had to have major back surgery) this summer, along with the normal nutty stuff that comes along with running an online shop. I hope you can understand & are still excited to join this team!

Hopefully this new system for the blog will make it so that you all don't need to depend on me (as much) to work together & figure events & promo stuff. I would really like to see several of you Amys step up & take the helm on projects & group events. You don't need my permission to coordinate anything. Just jump in & do it! Everyone working together & several people working on several types of promo events will make our team stronger then just one or two of us trying to lead the herd.

Okay, so let's get started. I hope this time we can get some momentum going!

Amy -
