#happyhandmade week forty-three

Welcome to another bustling week of #happyhandmade! So many amazing new shops linked up last week, and we had record high product views! I love seeing the Daft community grow and thrive!

For many shops, the cut off date for shipping is between the 16th & 20th - so that means if you see something you like in the #happyhandmade collection, you better snap it up before it's too late! :) 

In an effort to make this holiday season the best one ever for handmade and indie businesses, please share this edition of #happyhandmade far and wide - on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest, blog about it, tell your friends with shops about it, post it in forums, Facebook groups, Etsy teams - the more exposure this post gets & the more artisans that link up, the more eyes on everyone's products and the more products being shared by the community. ♥ Let's end 2013 with a bang, crafty friends! 

This week's Staff Picks:

This week's Most Viewed: 

Mon-stor Tooth Pillow by Lu & Ed
Daisy Mae Button Necklace by Kute as a Button
Hand spun pink Falkland Wool yarn by WhipplesWhimsy
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.
