    Hi Kathie,

    I’ve only just found this site via a post you made on LInked In. I find that it’s absoutely fantastic, so easy to read and navigate, so interesting and colourful,and I’ve just subscribed to your mailing list.

    I run my website http://www.amazingbeads.net, and my Etsy Shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/amazingbeads from my home in Ireland. I sell loose beads and supplies, but I love designing and making jewellery, and would love to have a small portfolio featured in The Cotton Ridge Create if you would have me.

    You can take a peek at my jewellery on Etsy and if you would be interested I can provide with you with more photo’s and any further information you may want.

    Kind Regards,

    Amazing Beads

    Hi Sue, thank you so much for your wonderful compliments! I just visited your Etsy shop – lovely jewelry! I just sent you a Convo via Etsy about featuring your jewelry in the Cotton Ridge Create! Gallery. Thank you again!

  3. Just found your site via LinkedIn. What a great idea. I’m new to the blogging and social networking world.
    I have an Etsy Shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/variationcreations
    blog http://www.papercreationsbyalison.blogspot.com
    flickr photostream http://www.flickr.com/photos/variation-creations/
    My main passion is paper crafts which range from cardmaking, stamping, mini photo albums, off the page projects, hanging mobiles, all handmade from my studio in Auckland, New Zealand.
    I enjoy scrapbooking , designing and making jewellery including polymer clay which also flows into my paper craft creations.
    I would love to have the opportunity to have a portfolio featured in The Cotton Ridge Create, if I’m chosen.
    Feel free to browse through my sites. If you are interested I can provide any information and photos you require.
    Thank you again for the opportunity.
    Kind Regards

  4. Hello. What a lovely site. I found you in the ceramics group on linked in and just spent a decent amount of time perusing your galleries. I’d love to be included and am thinking in particular the article I have on collaboration would fit nicely.


    Thank you!

      Hi Keisha,

    Hello, I just found your site on linked in and would love to have the opportunity to share my work at Cotton Ridge . I am a self taught artisan and my great passion is making costume jewelry. I live in Monterrey, México. I have had my own website http://www.gibbsheart.com for a year now, and I also have an Etsy shop under http://www.etsy.com/shop/Thingsfromtheheart.
    You are most welcome to visit my stores, I have pretty much the same jewelry in both of them, with the only difference that in my website I sometimes offer unique Mexican handcrafts and folk art, everything handmade.
    Thank you and congratulations, I think this is a wonderful idea.

    Have a great day.
