5000 Members~~~!! Let's Celebrate~~~!!

Dear SPS Team Members,

We have gorgeous news today, our team has reached 5 000 members! What an important milestone in our life! Welcome to our new members!!!!

First of all, I would like to say a BIG thank you to our fantastic team of leaders; without their volunteer work we can not exist.

A little history: 
SPS Team was established by my good friend, Shannon Johnston, 25 months ago. She and her team were real enthusiastic! They organized all the popular games and used new marketing tools, like blogging. When I became a SPS Leader, this team was real active. As you know, life on Etsy is full of ups and downs, and this happened with our team as well... Shannon found a new Captain, Anna from AGiftofNature. She started building our Leadership team and with incredible work doubled the number of our membership!!

The present:

I would like to share with you some details from our present life. Natalie from HanjiNaty and me (Ildi from Ceraminic) are trying to develop our team and make it more and more successful.

Our Leaders Team is real creative: we try to introduce new games and special threads every time and we have a strong Social Media network.

♥ Natalie from HanjiNaty is the ‘’heart’’ of the team: her main job is to organize our Team Blog, but she also manages many popular threads – if your shop needs a booster, it is not to late to start our Shop Critique program or join our exciting Scavenger Hunt!

Patricia from NorthandSouthShabby works hard
on our SPS Facebook pageevery day we find useful information 
and funny pictures there!

PaperLovePrintsRaluca from PaperLovePrints started our SPS Pinterestand her Fresh Finds Thread is one of the most popular. 

Tara from Beechtree had a gorgeous idea, 
she collects inspirational quotes and uses them 
to feature our Team members' shop on Facebook

Andreia from RollingIdeas contacts all our new members and she is one of the person we can thank for having so many members in the SPS Team! Without her incredible work we have no such a game like Create 3 Be in 48 Treasuries! 

Paula from BridgetsCollection is a great asset to our team! 
She manages many threads in the Forum, including the Create 2 Be in 32 Treasuries!


One of the most important thing at our life the Team Events:

♥ Amy from Amydscrochet organized already three Team Sales and Events, and a fourth one is coming this month. This is a very complex game with so many threads! Before Christmas we had 72 players and many many sales. She managed all the threads and participated in an amazing way!

Ellen from TheChillyDog is very active in blogging 
and she started the Team Wanelo
I hope more and more of you will join her Saturday "Show and Sell" Link Party.

Angela from Amievoltaire manages the Shop of the Day Thread and one of her gorgeous ideas is the Monthly Birthday Game! You are very welcome to share your birthday there and celebrate together with our teammates.

Karen from CatchingWaves worked last year on our Team Shop.
It was an incredibly huge work!

Laura from VenetianMemories is new among us and she takes care of the Summer Color Connection game and many other threads.

Carol from ConfectioneryGarden is a person full of ideas 
and she made many interesting threads for Easter, 

Our newest leader is :

Dorothy from ZzzonkOwl. She is a great blogger and she will help to make our blog bigger and bigger and generate as much traffic as possible to our awesome Team Blog. I wish her a good journey together with us.

And I, Ildi from Ceraminic
am so happy and proud to be your Captain! 

You see there is no secret... just very enthusiastic and hardworking people!

Hi, my name is Ildi. I really enjoy the process of making pottery: I sit down at a table with clay and try to make something that I have an imagination of. I want something and the clay wants something but in the end I can work until I am most satisfied with the outcome.
