FREE HANDMADE HAT...

I think I need to rename my little Etsy shop. I'm struggling with lack of views and orders and I'm hoping that a name change will help me be found more easily in search results. Anyone have any ideas? I wanted 'Heather's Hand Knits', but it's already taken. I need to have good SEO for this, so keywords are important. I've been sick for a few days and my brain is coming up blank, so I'd love some inspiration!

I'll send a free hat to the person who suggests the name I choose (free domestic shipping within the US, shipping charges only to everywhere else). 

Thanks!

Here's the link to my current shop...
I mostly make hats, but I do also make scarves and fingerless gloves too.

I wanted to ask for a little help, if you could...

...Not for me, but for a little girl fighting Leukemia. She was diagnosed around the time she turned one. She's now 21 months old and medical bills are seriously mounting with a long road of fighting still ahead.

I've donated some items I've made (some baby hats and a couple of scarves) to help raise funds to pay for some of her medical care. 100% of the funds raised are being donated directly to this family!

If you'd like to help out I'm sure they would be very grateful! 
Here's the link to the fundraiser (there's other cool stuff there to purchase besides my own donated items). <3

I want to take a moment to recommend a fantastic photographer... If you reside in the Orlando, Florida area (or will be in the area visiting), and want to get photos of your kids taken, you'll want to check out +Gilmar Smith​ Photography!

She has a wonderful eye for creative portraiture, and has a passion for what she does...

"Photography to me is something personal. It's about connection... The reason I choose to do Kid's portraits is because I get them into it, I don't push them to smile or do something they don't want to. It's about them, their likes, who they are. They reflect who they were in that specific time and what they were into [and] I enjoy the creative process."
-Gilmar Smith

She also does sessions other than just kids, so if you're looking for something creative and unique, contact her to book something fun!

Day 9...

AMUSED
 
We are officially on DAY NINE of REVEALS
from the 17TH ROUND of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the 9TH - the "*AMUSED*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.
TOMORROW THERE WILL BE NEWS ABOUT ADOBE JOINING OUR HUNT!!!! (slow nod)

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*AMUSED*" album,
1 item seen in 165 different ways.

Couldn't keep my shop closed until Fall... Despite the warmer weather, I just can't keep my hands still! Two new hats are available in the shop with more coming soon (I also have some scarves and fingerless gloves that I'm tempted to list early as well). 

In the meantime, say hello to my two newest additions to the shop! Super fun, bright colors, perfect for breezy spring weather! :)

With Adobe as the official sponsor, and giving out fantastic prizes, how can you say "No"?...

Less than an hour into sign-ups for Round 18 of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt and there's only about 100 spots remaining. These will likely be filled within the next hour, so if you really wanted to participate, NOW is the time to jump over to her post and do so! :) 

Be sure to go to the ORIGINAL POST to sign up! Trying to sign up on my share here WILL NOT COUNT!
 
THIS IS THE OFFICIAL SIGN UP POST
for the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt,
 ROUND 18

**SPONSORED BY ADOBE**
- Yes folks, that means we have prizes from Adobe this round!

__________________________________________________________________
 The Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt is an incredibly fun way to learn, to grow as a photographer, and to meet great people.
If you love photography you can play!

After sign ups (500 spots are open)
I will be giving you an item list -
10 simple things to take pictures of.
It's up to you to make your picture stand out!! So fun!!
I give you an amount of time to get those shots done (approximately 2 months).

You do NOT need to be a professional shooter. 
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level,
as this group of Scavengers is one of the most supportive groups of people around.
This is just FOR FUN.
To get you using your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push yourself to try new things.

During the course of the round, you will make friends, you will learn from some amazing photographers, we have behind-the-scenes lessons, we answer questions, we share techniques, etc. etc.
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of THE MOST amazing community on G+.

SO, if that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of...
All you have to do is type two simple little words, "*I'M IN* "
And you will be registered. 
This round I am hoping to also see your location - so if anyone actually reads this, say I'M IN and give me your city and country. "I'm in - Edmonton, Canada" 

IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP SOMEONE AS A PROXY (if someone has asked you to sign them up) do so on different comments.

I will only enter ONE PERSON per comment, if there are more than one on a single comment, only the first person will be entered. 
(This is the only way I can keep track of the 500 spots.)

PLEASE DO NOT comment on this post unless it is to sign up. Any stray comments will be deleted.

PLEASE DO NOT sign up unless you actually want to participate, not just because you see everyone else doing it.

I can't wait to get to know you!

And with that - (like any of you even read this) - let the registration BEGIN!!  

The image below is a collection of photographs that were created during Round 17." PHOTOS are: Cinnamon by +Kris Kowalewski, Cold by +Stefan Riss, Poison by +Andrea Martinez, Melt by +Stephanie MacNeill, Amused by +Jenny Loren, Glue by +Dragomir Madzharov, Unsophisticated by +Mary Presson Roberts, White by +Dana Finster, and Wind by +Christopher Germano

Day 10...

WHITE
 
Well, this is it - DAY TEN of REVEALS
for the 17th Round of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt.

By now you all know what the Scavenger Hunt is, so I won't bore you with details on this post. However, if you don't know and are interested, just look at another album for details!

Day Ten of reveals is always full of the "happy-sads":
Sad this round is over, but excited for the next round to begin!!

And this next round will be AMAZING.
I am THRILLED to announce that ADOBE is sponsoring 
the 18th Round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt. 
That's right, folks. Adobe. ADOBE!!! 

I CAN'T EVEN!!

They will be a part of our community, 
they will be involved in activities, 
and there WILL be prizes. nodding
This round - you do not want to miss!!

SO, the DATE FOR THE 18TH ROUND - Brought to you by ADOBE - SIGNUPS ARE ON:
MONDAY, MARCH 14th at 12 NOON (mountain time zone)

So that means you set your alarms, or you find yourself a reliable proxy that will be on MY PROFILE PAGE at 12 noon and watch for the official sign up post. I have a feeling this one might go fast, so make a note!

That said - here is our final album, our WHITE album.
1 word seen 252 different ways.

(none of the photos included in the album were taken by me. Each is taken by a different photographer involved in the 17th round of the scavenger hunt - All copyrights apply.)

Hmmm, I might just need to sign up for this! :)
 
A new mentorship is on it's way!
How Do You See?

Over the last 4 or so years I have been a member of several of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers programs both as a mentee and also as a helper/cheerleader. These programs are one of the reasons I’ve grown so much as a photographer and also met so many amazing people who I call friends.

It’s my turn to Pay It Forward! I will be leading my very own mentorship program based around one of the questions I have been asked the most over my photographic life; “How did you see that?”

Intrigued?

The sign ups will begin Wednesday March 9th around 7:00am CST and end Tuesday, March 15th at 9:00pm CST right here on my profile and will explain a little more about what the program will be about!




+Robin Griggs Wood +Alex Lapidus +Ron Clifford (for whatever reason it's not letting me or pulling up the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers to tag).

Sounds promising!  It might be something to give your spring some adult inspiration while your two are at preschool.
