Current Events

*Monthly Chat Thread*
Make sure you stop by the team “Chit-Chat” thread in the Teams & Events section of the Etsy Forums. This thread lasts all month long. The purpose of this thread is for the moms to get to know each other, share their blog links, talk about what’s going on with Etsymoms, share funny stories about the kiddos, etc. Please try and keep your promotions in the weekly promo thread. Stop by and say hello!

**Weekly Promo Thread**
Also, make sure you check out the EtsyMom Weekly promo threads in the Etsy Forums. Many EtsyMoms are featured in these threads every week! There is a new thread posted every Wednesday. Everyone is encouraged to participate in promoting! So please, stop by and promote yourself and other Etsymoms. Help us help each other! To find the most recent thread, go into the forums and search Etsymom and look for the most recent date.

**Kiddie Health Concerns Thread**
This is going to (hopefully) be a monthly feature as part of the Empowerment newsletter. QuirkyDolls has offered to do a Q&A type of article to post on the blog each month. So head on over to the Invision Board and post any kiddie health questions you might have. QuirkyDolls has a good list started; we just need YOU to add to it! You can ask anything! It can be short and sweet or very detailed. Whatever question is on your mind, let it out!

**Giveaways, Contests, Swaps, Etc. Thread**
Who doesn’t love a good giveaway, a cool contest or a fun swap? Now there is an official thread to share this info! You can post any kind of giveaways, contests, swaps, etc. They don’t have to be mommy or kid related. It can be anything! If you think someone else would like to know about it, then head over to the Invision Board and share the link with everyone!
I will also occasionally post them on the blog (if my schedule allows).

Right now, there is a really fun Easter Bunny Children’s Swap going on at Wee Pereas’ Blog. So make sure you check it out and sign up…but hurry, because the deadline is March 15th!

**Coupons, Coupons, Coupons and more Thread**
Did anyone watch Dr. Phil on 3/2/09? It was a money saving tips & tricks episode. He had Ashley aka Frugal Coupon Mom as a guest to share with everyone how she saves money by cutting coupons every week. I know I can sure use any ideas on stretching my dollars a little further! If you have any tips or tricks, or know of any good coupons websites, stop by the Invision Board and share them with all the EtsyMoms!
