All about eSMArts


The eSMArts team encompasses a band of talented artisans. I'd like to invite you to visit our team store on Etsy. Here you will find an array of items that are made and donated by our gifted team members- proceeds to go to charity. Check out unique and one-of-a-kind items from necklaces to earrings to raw materials used for creating jewelry among other exceptional items! The spotlight listed above is a taste of the items you will find!

Lois of “A beaded Affair” deserves a nod here. She has the duty of maintaining our team shop and has done a superb job of it!! Lois, we really appreciate your dedication to this project!!

Unlike most other Esty teams, we are a unique lot. We are spread all over the globe using the internet and social marketing venues to connect and sell our wares. We support each other in an assortment of ways; sharing marketing and sales education and information- for both on line and in person selling, blogging support and propagation, shop banners and photography hints and tricks… right down to our weekly chats on Etsy which really build a sense of camaraderie and friendship. We aren’t able to meet face-to-face but we have quite a global network that continues to grow.

We promote each other on a one-to-one level by the institution of a “Blog Buddy Feature” that changes each month. This allows each teammate to focus on one other member and actually get to know that person by featuring a blog post dedicated to that artisan. It is strictly up to the author to decide what items they feature but an artist “Bio” is a must. This helps to promote the art and the artist. The beauty is that it is reciprocated- the author is featured on the artist’s blog! What a fun way to get to know one another!

We have The eSMArts Team Blog that is dedicated to featuring members and their art and accomplishments. I’d like to invite you to visit and learn more about the team.

One last item of importance is our Team Leader, Anna Lee Husband. She is the exceptional artist behind GaHooleTree Jewelry, director, manager and friend. Without her we would not have this wonderful association of trans-global artists finding friendship, solidarity and unity in both learning and teaching each other social marketing of our art and God given talents. Thank you Anna Lee for all you do!! You are a VIP!!

I'm ready for St. Patrick's Day!


St. Patrick's Day was always special when I was growing up. My grandfather would always bring green carnations to his ladies: Nana, Mom, my sister and I. We would all enjoy a traditional Irish meal of corned-beef and cabbage and the sounds of Irish music could be heard from one end of the house to the other. I do miss those days~ and my grandparents. They blessed me with wonderful memories to share with my son Rich.
We always wore "something green" and a shamrock on St. Patty's. I think my Nana would have liked this piece. I've already sold one the first day I listed it on Etsy. I plan to wear mine on St. Patrick's day as I cook corned beef and cabbage for my clan and remember back to those days~just how LUCKY I am.
