Are you new here? #happyhandmade is a social sharing event for all artists, designers and crafters - you share up the three handcrafted products from your shop, then select three products from the link up list and share them via social media with your fans! In turn, people will be sharing your products with their audience, so everyone benefits from #happyhandmade with free promotion for their shops, reaching a wide new audience, as well as the benefit of shoppers browsing #happyhandmade here on our blog and the chance to be featured as a staff pick or most viewed product! Everyone wins! 
#happyhandmade is a great way to make new art friends too - follow the #happyhandmade tag on Twitter to connect with others participating in this week's link up!
What can you link up? Handmade products, art prints, and any designs you personally have created and had printed in small batches on clothing, fabric, notecards, etc. So long as you made it, you can share it! 

What you can't link up: blog posts, Facebook pages, giveaways, tutorials. This is to connect handmade shop owners with one another and promote one another's products, so all links you share should be to an individual product in your shop.
  • Link up to three {3} handmade products from your shops below! 
  • Share at least three {3} items from this collection (not yours) via social media! 
(Do not Pin items to Pinterest without express permission from the creator)
  • Tell at least three people about this link up!
{spread the word! the more people who hear about it, the more exposure everyone gets!}
  • Please show your support of handmade and leave a comment listing your favorite three products from the link up that you shared!
Click "add your link" - in the first box put the URL to your INDIVIDUAL product listing, not your shop home page. in the second box, put a description of your product. In the third, your email address. Click Submit and then select a thumbnail for the photo!


  1. shared

  2. I'm excited that the sushi clip was one of the most viewed!
    I shared Be Your Own Hero tee, Mon-stor Hat, Pirate cthulhu, and Inigo Montoya

  3. It's been a while since I've checked out Happy Handmade! Even better than I remember!

    Tweeted out the Be Your Own Hero tee, Gabos ornament, and Pink Bouquet hoop. :)

  4. One goal for 2014 is more advertising (and more sales), so when I saw this, I decided to give it another go. Told my friends on Zibbet, FB, and G+ about this link-up, and I am about to share the rainbow poncho, the zippered pouch, and the origami frog.
    Loads of fun - much luck to everyone!

    1. Awesome! Sounds like a good goal and glad that we can help you achieve it! :) Happy New Year!

  5. Sharing the Mario Bros. Peg People, Hoop Art, and Turtle Bank

  6. Loving the colorful poncho-shared to Social Bliss, the beautiful rug on Picsity, and the peace tote on Wanelo. All are great!
