#happyhandmade week thirty-seven

Welcome the the 37th installment of #happyhandmade! I can't believe it's the end of October - can you!? Time to get cozy in front of the fire and start your holiday shopping - and what better place to start that than #Happyhandmade!?

Between now and the holidays, let's share #happyhandmade posts far and wide and raise awareness about shopping handmade this holiday season! Share with friends, co-workers, on Etsy teams, in Facebook groups! The more people linking up and sharing, the more eyes on everyone's products and the more awareness we raise about buying handmade and supporting small businesses! 

This week's staff picks:

This week's most viewed:

Dr. Horrible Plush doll by Scrawny Girl Shop
Dexter the Yeti by Sugar Crumbs
Cupcake Towel by Nature Junkie

Are you new here? #happyhandmade is a social sharing event for all artists, designers and crafters - you share up the three handcrafted products from your shop, then select three products from the link up list and share them via social media with your fans! In turn, people will be sharing your products with their audience, so everyone benefits from #happyhandmade with free promotion for their shops, reaching a wide new audience, as well as the benefit of shoppers browsing #happyhandmade here on our blog and the chance to be featured as a staff pick or most viewed product! Everyone wins! #happyhandmade is a great way to make new art friends too - follow the #happyhandmade tag on Twitter to connect with others participating in this week's link up!

What can you link up? Handmade products, art prints, and any designs you personally have created and had printed in small batches on clothing, fabric, notecards, etc. So long as you made it, you can share it! 

What you can't link up: blog posts, Facebook pages, giveaways, tutorials. This is to connect handmade shop owners with one another and promote one another's products, so all links you share should be to an individual product in your shop.
