Tip of the month
Those of you in the Northern hemisphere should take advantage of the fact that Spring is on its way to come up with some brand new craft items. This will give you a great excuse to have a craft home party to launch your new Spring range! Unless you're in the UK, you'll be in plenty of time to set up lots of parties before Mother's Day too...

Craft resource of the month
I received an email from one of my subscribers this month asking me whether I'd recommend Site Build It!, which is what I have used to create and maintain Craft-Selling-Parties.com. As my reply was a resounding "Yes!" I thought perhaps I should share my enthusiasm with the rest of you too...
I'm not a technophobe, but neither am I a techie, and when I created this website I wanted to focus on making it useful and accessible, rather than spending all my time battling with html and search engine optimisation. Site Build It! has made that really easy, and in the year that Craft-Selling-Parties.com has been up and running it has become more popular than I'd ever hoped, and this newsletter now has over 450 subcribers. And despite being an information website, rather than an e-commerce site, it has paid for itself and made a nice little profit as well.
I have created other websites using much cheaper systems, but none of them have been very successful. And so I've now invested in a second Site Build It! website to promote my bridal jewellery properly. I'll let you know when it's up and running!
If you are thinking of building a website as more than just a brochure/showcase for your crafts, then I'd definitely recommend you take a look at Site Build It!
If you know of a useful website or resource that would appeal to my readers, please let me know about it here.
If you've enjoyed reading this newsletter, I'd very much appreciate it if you could take a minute to rate or review it on Bestezines.com
