Volume 2- August 2008

Hello TeamSC Members, I hope everyone is having a great summer! Our team is having a lot of exciting things going on right now and some exciting things planned for the near future. We would love to have our members involved!

Team Meetings: I was so sorry to have to cancel last month's team meeting due to my father's heart attack, but thank everyone so much for the support and well-wishes. My father is doing much better and is now home from the hospital. We are going to try to move the Team Meetings from the first Monday to the first Tuesday of every month to see if we can accommodate more member's schedules. I will set up our next meeting for Tuesday, September 2 @ 8PM in the Virtual Labs. Please check the thread here for information about team meetings.

Weekly Contests: Our weekly contests are now running Monday to Monday to try to get a featured artist on the blog every week. The current contest is RED, so if you have any red items you will have through Sunday at midnight to enter! Check this board weekly to see our weekly contests, it is a great way to promote your shop through the team if you win! Check out the team blog to see current winner, Kim Winkeler Photography and next week's featured winner will be SCDiva. Congratulations on your wins, you guys!

Creative Challenge #1- FALL!: Our team's very first creative challenge is under way. This month's theme is Fall. Your item must be created specifically for this creative challenge and fit the theme of Fall. You also must be a member of The South Carolina Etsy Street Team to participate. We have extended the deadline until September 15th. Check this thread to find out what to do next as that will be posted VERY soon. We will not have another creative challenge until after the holidays so don't miss your chance to participate!

Holiday Stocking Hunt: Our team is going to be sponsoring a Holiday Stocking Hunt! It's going to be a great way to get the Etsy Community involved and a great way to promote the team. Morgan Alexa Designs has done a superb job getting this together, I want to thank her so much. We will soon have a special section on the message board for all of the details of this hunt, so check back often!

The Blog: I'm still looking for volunteers to write articles on the team blog. We need to keep the blog fresh! I wrote an article on my hometown a couple of weeks ago and would love to see more towns from across the state featured. If you are interested in helping out with the blog please send me an email to If you do not see your shop's name on the blog or etsy team page please post a message to this thread. If you have already posted to that thread, your shop will be added shortly.
