Over the past few years, Pinterest, the online site where you can pin items you like to different boards, has become increasingly popular. I myself have a personal account and love using it.
Now, the lovely and talented members of EtsyVeg have their own group board where we can pin items from our shops. The good thing about this is that you can find all the handmade items you could want made by vegetarian and vegan makers all in one place.
Our board is still growing, and has lots of cool items for you to check out. Stop on by our EtsyVeg Board and see what we're sharing! (And if you're a team member who'd like to join us in our pinning adventures, be sure to let me know your username - we'd love to have you pin with us!)

You are cordially invited to play, get more involved with the team, get inspired, share your talent, take advantage of some free promotion... get ready for October's team creative challenge!
Our theme is "LOVE". This is February, which is a popular month to show what or who we love! You are welcome to join in with any item you feel represents "LOVE". The theme is very subjective. It can be ANY item that you feel fits that theme! Any color, style, shape or any other thing that fits that theme is welcome to be entered!
Each month's challenge entries will be listed on the blog and put up for public vote, the winner receiving an ad for their shop on the team for the entire month following. :) Every 6 months, all 6 winners from the last series of challenges will be put up for a vote together, the top vote getter winning a grand prize! Yay!
Please join in our creative celebration for this month! Here's how to enter...
~Participation is open to any EtsyVeg team member.
~If you want to participate, you must enter you item in the official thread in our Google Group or EtsyVeg team Etsy forums.
~Each member may enter one item. Entry involves simply posting the link to an applicable item in your Etsy shop in September's monthly
challenge forum thread and tagging that item with the tag "love" (all one word, without the quotations). You must
also have your entry tagged with the official team tag, "etsyveg team."
~If an item entered in the challenge sells before the end of the month, please send a convo to the EtsyVeg Etsy shop, including the
link to the sold item, so that it can still be included.
~Deadline for entry is February 28th.
~All entries will be featured in a treasury on the EtsyVeg blog at the beginning of next month, to be voted on by the public (EtsyVeg members
can vote, too). The top vote-getter will be awarded with an ad for their Etsy shop on the top of the blog sidebar for the entire month
until the next winner is chosen. At the end of six months, all winners from the past six months will be up for vote on the blog again, this
time eligible to win a grand prize gift!
~All EtsyVeg members (not just participants) are encouraged throughout the month to initiate forum threads about the challenge, make
treasuries by doing a tag search for "etsyveg team" with "love" and putting only those items in the treasury, or to
generate other types of promotion. (If you do any of these, please let everyone know so that we can all post or click to keep it going!)
~Please direct concerns or questions to Maggie of magglepie, or send an email to email@example.com
The EtsyVeg Monthly Challenge is meant to inspire, recognize, and promote team members and our shops; to spread the word about vegan/
vegetarian lifestyles and living consciously; and to raise awareness about the ease of eco-friendly living and the rights of animals to
live free of exploitation.
