Happy Birthday EtsyHookers!



The EtsyHookers Crochet Team is officially 1 year old today, December 1st! Created by Deon, I took over the team in March of this year. Lots of changes have happened on our team since then and I’m happy to say that most of the original members who signed up last December are still with us and active!
To celebrate our Birthday, our Ning network has a brand new look - check it out here:
http://etsyhookers.ning.com

I think most of us, myself included, were tired of the overwhelming pinkness of our original theme we had. This new look is refreshing and will be an easier to read font and color scheme. I created our new banner with the hopes that team members will design something that will look more professional (I've also uploaded the new banner here). We’ll have a contest for a new team banner, and plan some other team events to celebrate.

Thanks so much to a wonderful team! Happy Birthday, and I wish us many more!

Please take a moment to help us celebrate by “signing” this birthday card, by leaving a comment. Thank you.

Happy Birthday to all of the Etsy Hookers, I am happy that I joined and was accepted. All of you that I have visited your shops are very talented. Being older I am glad to see the crochet will not just fad away. You are all keeping it alive and very well.
