WIST: HELP WANTED

Many members of WIST have specifically asked if there's anything they can do to help- well, I didn't have a list before, (now I do!), and silly me, I forgot to write down who offered. So here's our very own "HELP WANTED" Ads. =^.^;=

Please convo me, (ZenithJade.Etsy.com), your request to fill a spot. It's mostly on a first come, first serve basis. I would like to especially thank those who have been helping out until I got this list compiled. (You know who you are! =*^.^*=). I've appreciated it A LOT, and you guys seriously rock my SOCKS.

(Spots Filled!) Thursday Promo Thread - KnitSteel has been keeping this going for weeeeeeks. =*^.^*= The link for the forum promo thread is *always* posted in the google group on Thursday mornings.
-> KnitSteel
-> nanjodogz has volunteered to help bump the thread up. =^.^=
-> chickadeebeads is the official backup for Knitsteel. *grins*

(Spots Filled!) Posting Event Information in the blog - You can see basic templates on how to post event information in the blog by clicking here. Instead of having everyone send their event info to me, it would be sent to you. Fun links at the bottom of event info is totally optional.
-> kittygrrlz
-> nanjodogz
-> chickadeebeads

(Spots Filled!) Swap Handlers - For any fun swaps us WISTers might come up with. Will keep track of who sent what, what goes to who, how much to pay for shipping, etc.
-> MindyKuen
-> MineFull
-> oddstuffbyXanthe
-> ElementsbyDawn

(Spots Filled!) Two or Three Co-Contest Runners - So I can participate in contests, too! (And other WIST members may have other wonderful contest ideas).
-> MineFull
-> northwoodsfelt
-> keepitmagickal

A Gaggle of Volunteer Judges for Contests - On a rotation/volunteer basis. People we can ask to help judge contests.
-> MindyKuen
-> chickadeebeads
-> MineFull
-> nanjodogz
-> northwoodsfelt
-> KungFuCowgirl
-> kittygrrlz
-> oddstuffbyXanthe
-> euphoriamoondesigns
-> glitterstar
-> cuteandsweet
-> Sysiphe
->

Etsy Shop (shop specific) Gift Certificates for prizes & promos - In the event that WIST hosts an ETSY-WIDE contest, it sure would be nice to have some kickbutt gift certificates from WI Etsy Shops. (Great promotional opportunity, here). It's also very kind to provide that sort of choice to WIST contest winners. (Please note- if WIST makes enough $$$ by selling Art Books & WIST merchandise, WIST will eventually be *purchasing* gift certificates & prizes from members).
-> MindyKuen
-> MineFull
-> KungFuCowgirl
-> ZenithJade
-> keepitmagickal
-> kittygrrlz
-> oddstuffbyXanthe
-> carisdesigns
-> euphoriamoondesigns
-> kherm5838
-> Sysiphe

Graphics for WIST-themed Merchandise - I'd love to start up a CafePress store for cool WIST stuff. Profits would go for shipping prizes, and purchasing promo materials. (And quite possibly renting a space for a WIST Craftacular).
-> ZenithJade
-> Nuemj
-> MineFull

Volunteers to make WIST-specific promos (handmade promos, woo!) - These can be flyers, buttons, cards, magnets, keychains, odd & creative bits for WIST promo bags. Octarine made the "Little Taste of Etsy" promos- a "Little Taste of WI" would be equally cool, I think.
-> MineFull
-> KnitSteel (little leafy trinkets - received)
-> nanjodogz (cool paper stuffs // really cool polymer clay cheese charms - received)
-> ZenithJade
-> Nuemj
-> kittygrrlz (?)
-> spaceoddities (1" buttons)
-> oddstuffbyXanthe (1" buttons)
-> thebeanshop (Really cool polymer clay WIST charms - received)
-> Sysiphe
->

Donators for "A Little Taste of Wisconsin-Etsy" Promo packs:

Co-Event Planner / Organizer for the (potential) WIST Craftacular - This event idea is still in the works. Keep your eyes peeled, folks!
-> MineFull

A Bookmaker/Binder to design a traveling art book - For fun. =^.^= I'm thinking that the swaps coordinator will get the book first (or second, including the designer) & develop a list of interested parties. *grins*
-> Nuemj

(Spots Filled!) Organizer(s) of a Monthly/Quarterly WIST Sale Spectacular - Another promotional opportunity. Decide on a percentage off, or BOGO, or something equally enticing.
-> keepitmagickal
-> nanjodogz

Volunteers to *be* interviewed for the WIST blog - I want all of us WISTers to get to know each other better.
Interviewer -> MineFull
Interviewer -> ZenithJade
Interviewer -> kittygrrlz
Volunteer GuineaPig -> keepitmagickal
Volunteer GuineaPig -> WhimzyPinzy
Volunteer GuineaPig -> pinkquartzminerals
Volunteer GuineaPig -> Nuemj

(Spots Filled!) Keeping Flickr Updated - MineFull started the WIST flickr group, and she's volunteered to keep it updated. =*^.^*= Don't forget to post up your event photos to the group! (And cool crafty stuff/craft areas/pets/family/everything!). There are also some very neat discussions that happen over there. *grins*
-> MineFull
-> spaceoddities has offered to help out with this one, MineFull!

Organizing & Maintaining a WIST Chat - I think it would be rather nifty if we could do one of these weekly/bi-weekly/monthly (your pick) to touch base, share ideas and hang out. It will be even niftier if I don't have to organize it! =~.^= We'd need dates/times & a place (one of the Etsy chat rooms, perhaps?).
-> euphoriamoondesigns
->

WISTers to help plan/organize/run events, (or that have event ideas). =*^.^*= (I know that some of you WISTers have volunteered ideas & such in the past for WIST events- please send me another convo or email. This is my "reminder" list, too!).
-> euphoriamoondesigns (WIST Cookbook - started)
-> carisdesigns (WIST fair @ Mickey's)
-> persimmonsgal (Lots of stuff + 'Zine)
->
->

Someone(s) to organize a WIST gift basket. This is how it will work out: WISTers will donate an item for the basket. Anyone who shops at participating WIST shops will get put into a raffle. (One entry per one item purchased). In October or November, we'll pull a name, (or names), "out of a hat." We'll send the winner(s) the gift baskets. =^.^= It will be a fun, easy way to get some pre-Christmas sales, methinks. *grins*
-> ElementsbyDawn
->
->

Sewing a WIST banner(s) for shows!!!
->
->
->

Someone to compile & keep (relatively) current a WIST scrapbook. =*^.^*=
-> rosybird
-> ZenithJade
->

Someone(s) to make a bunch of business card-sized envelopes for all our WIST biz cards in promo bags! They'll need to be able to hold at least 10 business cards. =*^.^*=
->
->
->
->
->

(Spots Filled!) Compiling & organizing a list of Wisconsin events/fairs with reviews, what kind of fair it is, and information on how to apply.
-> oddstuffbyXanthe

Again: Please convo me, (ZenithJade.Etsy.com), your request to fill a spot. It's mostly on a first come, first serve basis. I would like to especially thank those who have been helping out until I got this list compiled. (You know who you are! =*^.^*=). I've appreciated it A LOT, and you guys seriously rock my SOCKS.
