Giveaway Winner, Sponsors, and Link Party!

I want to thank our sponsors for helping to promote the Udderly Amazing New Shop Contest! Please show them some appreciate and check out their blogs. (Ladies, I'll also be promoting you on my other blogs to show my appreciation).

Rachael over at Little Birdie Baby. She does some pretty nifty crafts and makes the cutest baby clothes.

Lavender Dreams. She shares a lot of her pretty vintage crafts and treasures she finds. She also features some great photos of Florida. Makes me wish I was there!

Tina's Primitive Attic. Oh my, what lovely prim things she has. Stacking pillows, a plethora of primitive dresses, prim ornies, stitcheries, wall candle sconces, and more!

Rae of Light Photos, aka Attempts at Being Artistic. After seeing her photos, you'll wonder why "Attempts" is in the title. She does amazing photography - not only in the photos' artistry, but they also leave so much open for interpretation. It's like each photo tells a mini vignette.

Thank you so much for helping to promote the contest. I wish I could send every one of you a prize. I tossed the names into the hat and drew out Lavender Dreams. This is so incredibly coincidental because the scent is lavender. It blew me away! I guess they were indeed made for her!

And now on to the Sunburnt Cow Link Party. We had another round of great link ups. I've featured some of you over at my All Thumbs Crafts blog, since that gets a lot of traffic. Plus, the traffic is of a different variety, so this will help get more exposure to those of you who participate
from people outside your usual circle. I'll be finishing up the features from last week sometime this week over at All Thumbs.

At any rate, this party is where you can link up anything you made. You can even link up blog posts revolving around items you have for sale. The limit is four posts, so have fun!

Here's the usual wording I put in every link up party. If you've read it before, just skip down to the linking up part:

So, welcome to another Sunburnt Cow Handmade Shop link party! It will run every Wednesday and go until Sunday. Unlike other link parties, you'll be able to link up to things you have for sale on your blog. No links to your actual Etsy, Ebay, or other storefront shops, though.

This will be a great way to see what handmade items people have for sale throughout this great world wide web. These photos that you'll be sharing will have to come from one of your blog posts. It doesn't matter how old or new the post is, though if you're trying to get people to notice the items you have currently for sale, it's best to link up something that's current.

If you haven't participated in link parties before, they're a great way for you to get some traffic to your blog. They're also very easy to participate in.

To participate, link up ONLY the blog post(s) you want to include on this link party. (You may link up to four posts). Do NOT link up to your actual blog, but to the post itself. If you don't know how to do this, simply click on the title of your blog posts, and that will give you the url address to that particular post up in the website address bar. Copy that, and then click on the "Add your link" button on this link party.

Up will pop three boxes, one for adding your url to that particular blog post, (which I just explained how to find it and copy it), what you want the title of the entry to be, and your email address. Click on "next step," which will bring you to another page that pulls up all the photos associated with that blog post. Select the one you want to represent the thumbnail in this link party, and there you have it! Easy peasy!

Remember also to put this button in your sidebar or post that you're linking up. A text link is fine as well.
