Peacefully Pink - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

Even though the color pink is not a favorite color, I have come to respect it.  That came about when I read an article stating that a person can sell more at handmade art shows if they wear a pastel pink colored shirt.  In color psychology, light pink is a positive color inspiring warm, comforting thoughts and is a sign of peace and hope.  According to the article, when you wore pink, people found you more thoughtful and insightful and you were more trusted.  The author, who sold at shows, swore by wearing pink and said her sales definitely increased once she made the change.

Artisan Handmade Beauties from the Cross Partners in Promotion Group

The Cross Partners in Promotion (CPP) group is a handmade family of diverse artists.  Most of us have known each other online for years.  When it came time for most to move to a new venue (such as Indiemade, Etsy, On Fire for Handmade, Shopify, their own web site, etc.) we didn't want to loose track of each other.  So the CPP group was formed a little over a year ago, headed up by Nancy Tonelli, and is still going strong.  We share links to our own items and promote the shared items of other members.  Interesting articles, link ups, funny happenings in life and (unfortunately) sad happenings, as well, are also shared.  YAY for family!!!

Beautiful Artisan Handmade Creations from the Cross Partners in Promotion Group!

The Cross Partners in Promotion group gathered almost a year ago (has it been almost a year already?) on G+ to promote each others handmade items.  And what a great group it is with a HUGE amount of talent.  I want to share that talent with you by sharing one item from each person who was active this week in sharing and/or promoting.  Below are the items chosen, listed in a scientific order achieved from drawing numbers randomly from a small bowl (:  

Section 2, Number 5 - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade - January 13, 2015

Happy 2016 to all!  Here it is, time for my first blog post for the new year.  If you are like me, you are still trying to figure out what happened to 2015!  

A Little of This, A Little of That - All Handmade

Many months ago, a team of wonderful artists pulled together to form a group called the Cross Partners in Promotion.  It's a group that not only heavily promotes each other, but also offers congratulations, offers support, offers sympathy, offers interesting and entertaining articles, and abounds in cheerleading efforts . . . and comforted each other after unexpectedly loosing a dear team member.  Most of us have known each other online for years and have become an extended family.  I decided to share a wide range of lovely handmade items from my artist friends who have checked into the group in the past seven days.  I hope these beauties are enjoyed as much as I have enjoyed picking them out and sharing them!
