The holiday shopping season is here!

I've decided to start doing more marketing this holiday season. I belong to several craft, art and handmade networking sites and am in a couple of marketing campaigns.

Check out the Holiday Open House on Online Shopping Mall. I found several really neat stores that I'm going to do some shopping in.

And I paid to advertise in the Virtual Craft Show on Cafe Handmade. Again, lots of great sellers and some really neat stuff. On the Virtual Craft Show they have a Best in Show award that goes to the advertiser who gets the most votes that week. The ads start on Sunday and go until the next Sunday. You can vote only once. I was in first place for a little while but am now in 3rd place. If you would like to vote for me please check out my Split Rock Ranch ad on Virtual Craft Show.You don't have to be a member and you don't have to register or anything else, just click to vote! Thank you!

UPDATE: I am now in 1st place! Thank you everyone for all the votes and the nice comments. I will still need votes to continue until Sunday to maintain my lead.

I love how my ad turned out on the Virtual Craft Show:

I think the colors just POP on this ad!

Okay, now I've got to get started dyeing up more fibers and yarns and get more fiber blend batts carded up so my store is stocked up for the holiday season. As always, I love to do custom orders so if there is something you're looking for in the way of yarns or fibers, please let me know and I'll do my best to get it for you!

Your ad does look great! I voted for you. And I totally agree with what you wrote about my holiday ramblings - I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who doesn't always put up a tree. (The poor childebeasts.) It's a lot of dang work!

But your story is better than's hysterical that the tree is so big! I can empathize with the cat issue - but mine is part cats, part kids. Tell ya what...I'll give you my (much more manageable) 7' artificial tree AND the 'beasts. How can you beat that??

Thank you everyone for all the votes. I am now in #1 position but will need votes to hold onto the lead until Sunday.

Ms. Queen - thanks for the offer, but I think I'll pass - I'm done with childebeasts, thank you very much! I've done my part and am better for it but don't care to repeat the process again.
