A Chance To Be Featured On Handmade Spark

Handmade Spark (www.handmadespark.com) is looking to feature Etsy teams on their blog in October, which according to them is when the shopping/gift-buying frenzy starts. It’s a popular blog that features articles on crafts and handmade items, so this will be good publicity for the group if we were to be featured.

From the Handmade Spark site:

All Etsy teams are eligible. Each team must choose 10 products/sellers that best represent their team. How each team chooses their Top 10 is up to them. Submissions can include holiday items, or not – again, entirely up to each team. We ask that the products include clear photography and include your team’s tag as one of the (14 Etsy tags).  We plan on featuring teams beginning in October with a new Gallery devoted to your team’s chosen items.

I think if we were to be chosen, this would be great exposure for ALL of us, even if only 10 is featured, as buyers will be encouraged to search for our team/group tag.

So now, these are the steps we need to take:

1. Tag any of your items that best represent the Etsy Malaysia team/group with this tag: ‘team etsymalaysia

This is the official tag that was submitted to Etsy.

To get your chance at being featured, please tag your items by 11.59pm Sunday 26 Sept so that we can get our entry in early.

2. After the 26th, log on to Etsy and search for ‘team etsymalaysia’.

Alternatively, you can also go to this page to see all member shops and go through each shop:-


*Reminder to members: Please register yourself for the new Etsy Groups Beta if you haven’t. Thank you!

3. Vote for 10 of your favourite items by posting the link to each item in a post here:-


4. We’ll give it about 5 days for everyone to vote. Then, after 1 October, the votes will be tallied and the 10 items with the most votes will be submitted to Handmade Spark for consideration to be included in their Galleries.

If you have any questions, please do leave a comment here.

Let’s get tagging!


So We Were at Art for Grabs!

So as mentioned, some of the team members met up at Art for Grabs last weekend! It was a lot of fun meeting up with each other for the very first time! :D

If you haven’t yet, check out some of the photos at the Team’s Fan Page here and here. Those who were there also made the effort to introduce the team to many visitors, so YAY to everyone! :)

P/S: One thing that we definitely forgot to do was to take a group photo!

The New Etsy Groups in Beta!

Etsy has just launched a new Etsy Groups feature, basically replacing the old Team Profile. Etsy Malaysia Local Team has been selected as one of the beta testers for the first phase, and hence we are one of the first few to migrate our Team Profile to the new one. Wee! :)

More features for the Etsy Groups are said to be available soon. While we wait for updates, I’ve sent invitations to the existing members so we can all migrate to the new page. You should be receiving an email from ‘Etsy Group’, asking you to go to the page to join. As of now, there are still 23 members who haven’t responded. Kindly do so ASAP.

I’m still in the middle of playing around with the basic features and haven’t got the time to check the Groups Handbook. Also, as you can see, our avatar and banner in the new page are the old ones done by me. So if anyone of you have the time to help out, I’d appreciate a fresher and prettier set. Thank you! :)
