Chaos By Design has been on Etsy for a little over a year now and am very pleased with the success that I feel I have had. It hasn't been easy getting my name out there but I feel that one team in particular, the EtsyKids Team, has been a huge part of that success.

The EtsyKids team is a group of AMAZINGLY talented Etsy sellers who dedicate themselves to, your guessed it, KIDS!

One of the most prominent ways that this team has helped me out has been by getting my shop's names out there to people who normally would never find me. Several sales, especially recently, have been from other members of the team who have found me and feel strongly about supporting other members.

In addition, there are several members who constantly create treasuries. These treasuries are always very popular and are posted in so many places. My exposure from these is amazing. And I do admit, one of the best feelings is waking up to my facebook page and seeing that one of my products has been chosen to be the lead photo for a new treasury.

I cant express my gratitude enough for this very wonderful group of people!

Want to find out more? Do a search in Etsy for "EtsyKids Team", check out the blog or their Etsy page. You won't regret it.

Here are a few links to get you started:
