Crazy Train Promotions & Updates & Ad Space!

If you haven't done so already you must check out this seller on artfire. She has a fantastic shop filled with jewelry, incense burners, soap dishes, and tons more. She also makes wonderful polymer clay creations, many of which are not only jewelry but handmade bead supplies. La De Da Creations pretty much has something for everyone.

See La De Da Creations here!

If you don't understand the title of this blog let me explain...

As you are all aware I've been working on updating my store fronts. Well, my Artfire has officially been updated. It now has all my listings that are on my Etsy page. I have also caved in and bought a pro account a few months back. It allows me to do a lot of things on there I otherwise couldn't, making shop sections is one such thing which becomes a necessity for someone like me who lists multiple creations in many categories.

If you haven't been to see my artfire shop please stop by and have a look. Prices are all the same but I won't always have the same sales promotions up for all my store fronts. This means I could have exclusive sales for buyers on my artfire like free shipping, whereas I wouldn't be offering that to any Etsy buyers during that promotion time and vice versa.

Come see Threaded Chains on Artfie here!

In other news my store policies have changed. Most things are the same, just reworded. I wanted to minimize how much I had written but still highlight all the important things. I understand it may seem long to some of you but please understand, everything I have listed IS important.

In blog related news I will be updating this journal to have a pages layout. I will also look into getting my shop policies on here for everyone to see be you someone who found me through Etsy, Artfire, or Shophandmade.

Fortunately and Unfortunately I do not have such a free schedule next week. This week I only had one day scheduled at my day job (not my choice). I was allowed so much time to work on my store. Next week I have four days, including this Sunday and next Saturday. of course, I will be working on Threaded Chains every second I am able in between.

I've got some neat pics I want to share with everyone.

I had hoped to have some new items listed this week, but it's looking like I will be postponing my posting still as I have my store to update yet.

I am doing a few short bursts of advertisements for Threaded Chains. Check out facebook, maybe you'll see my ad! On the 17th I will also be showcased on Etsy in the Necklaces and Earrings showcase sections. Keep your eyes out for that.

Lastly, in regards to advertising I will be looking into having a space on my blog here for anyone interested in purchasing ad space. I will be figuring out ad sizing and placement on my blog page within the next few weeks, hopefully sooner. I'll be offering spaces up on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Don't worry, it will be cheap! My blog is connected to my Threaded Chains facebook page and I have links up to it on all my store fronts, plus I mention new blog pots via facebook, twitter, and in etsy (soon to be artfire as well) forums. Anyone purchasing ad space will also be up for getting direct promoting from me as well. I have over 90 likes on facebook and counting, plus over 200 followers on twitter, and counting, so there is tons of potential for you to get additional shoppers coming in to your store.

My goal is to be eventually able to remove Google Adsense from my blog. I dislike it and it isn't bringing in any revenue for me. I would much prefer to advertise handmade artisans or vintage sellers. Supplies sellers of both commercial and handmade goods are also welcome too.

If anyone is interested leave me a comment here, convo me on Etsy or Artfire, see me on facebook, or shoot me an e-mail at Just be sure to title any off blog or facebook inquiries in the subject line with "Blog Adspace" or something to let me know who you are.


  1. Have you looked into Project Wonderful? It's a great option for those just getting started in advertising, whether it be as a publisher or an advertiser.

  2. No I haven't. I'll check it out. Thanks Aquariann! :)
