I'm so very excited to be participating in this with my mom and sister! And I love the idea of going to a park where the kids can play, the husbands can get some food, and we can show off our creations and hard work! It's going to be beautiful :)

First, I found a site that's like the yellow pages for all things handmade and vintage! You simply post your links and what you do (create, sell, etc.) and it lists you and your links. The best part is that it's free! It does have an option for a monthly fee, where you can upload pics or your shop url. But free works for me! It's called Handmade Spark and here's the link! http://www.handmadespark.com
Second, I found Zibbet.com. They have no listing or commission fees! I beleive a basic account is free. Right now a Premium account is $7/month (a little over 1/2 off). However if you refer friends, family, anyone really, they give you a dollar off for each referral to a premium account! The best part is it's for life! So eventually you could have a free premium account. How awesome is that! Awesome, I say.
There are so many features that I absolutely love about Zibbet.com. One is that you can customize your shop. Not just the order of your items but the colors. The heading, font, side bar, almost everything you can change the color. My shop has more personality that way and stands out from the crowd. Two, the day I signed up I had 2 people say hi and welcome to Zibbet. (and they were not the creators of the site). I was amazed at the warmth and friendliness. No one said welcome to me when I joined Etsy :( Three, they allow you to post your Etsy mini on your Zibbet shop page! Again, very awesome! They have a feature that lets you add widgets to your shop. Including Twitter "follow me" button, Zibbet referral banner, Facebook fan button, etc. And fourth, I've had 50+ views on my two cakes I posted, each, and only been signed up for 3 days. Etsy has taken 3 weeks to get to that, even with promoting my shop. So yes, I love Zibbet. If you want to love Zibbet too, here's the link! http://bit.ly/aOoAEx
Third and last, Thank you to all my new Link Love Friends! Whomever thought of that idea is a genius and has helped so many people get their names out there! What a wonderful idea! Hope all this info helps you find all the buyers you were looking for :)
The More I learn the more I Blog.

This is my first Blog for 1 cup Cotton-Towel Cake Creations and More! Come to think of it, it's my first blog ever. So I would like to say Welcome! It's nice to meet you and look forward to doing business with you!
I recently opened a Store on Etsy.com. I "bake" Towel Cakes and Diaper Cakes. Now if I really baked them then I would have a huge fire in my home and we don't want that, lol :) A little about myself, I'm happily married with two wonderful children. I have been creating these cakes for friends and family for years. Then a good friend of mine told me about Etsy.com. So that is what I am doing. I've "baked" quite a few cakes and have them for you to view and if you like, buy.
My newest addition to my store is my mom, Linda. She has been crocheting Afghans and Baby Blankets since I was a kid. A long time ago, well not that long ago. She also has been making these blankets for birthday gifts and wedding presents for a long time. So she and I are now working together to bring you 1 cup Cotton.
I hope that you visit soon. You can visit us on Etsy, Facebook, Twitter and now Blogspot!
Happy Shopping :)
