June 2009 Newsletter: Summer Crafting!

Welcome to June
Summer fun (at least on this half of the world) is just around the corner! How is your summer crafting going? Let us know (and get some publicity at the same time).

Do you blog?
If so, let us cross post animal and/or craft related posts on the CFA guild blog. You'll get double the exposure :) Just let me know when you have an article to double post.

Do you have a pet?
Humans don't count :) but if you have any animals that you share a home with, send me a pic of them - I'll be highlighting member pets on the blog and you know they'd love the attention.

Check out FURPOWER!
Have you heard of Romeo the Cat? FURPOWER was started by Romeo the Cat and Pugsley too where $1 can make a difference in a furballs' life. Basically, each month she picks a cat friendly animal organization to sponsor as the FURPOWER organization. Then, donations made to Romeo the Cat during that month is donated to the FURPOWER organization. Last month's recipient was Beaufort Community Cat Project. Creative idea!

Any Artfire tips and tricks?
Have you learned a neat trick on artfire that you want to share? If so, let me know and I'll post it on our CFA guild blog.

For all those who haven't seen, Artfire has rolled out the Fusion Studios. Its an exhilarating change to the way customers can view your shop. You are provided with color options, banner size options, and side and bottom widgets. You can edit your studio by going to Edit My Studio.

Try placing our CFA Guild image in your right hand widget area (take a look at my shop for an example). If you need help, just let me know.


Please provide some artfire cheer to our latest new members: scamperingscotties, SecondHandNews, crescent-moon-creations, glassworksnorthwest, rosetreecreations and GlasstasticTreasures. Invite your friends by submitting their username here. That's a total of 39 members! You can also check out items made by our talented members here.

We need help to grow. The ideas are limitless but to get started, I'm looking for someone to help us with our flickr group and our membership list. We could also use help in maintaining CFA in various social websites.
