KeepsakeDesignsbyCMM - And Celebrating 500 Artists!

Cindy Massingill is designing one of a kind pieces in Fairbanks, Alaska.  This is my second post for Cindy and it is to celebrate having 500 artists listed here now! 

Next week on Thanks-giving Day, it will have been one year since I started ArtisansOfAmerica.info and began using Blogger to post artists everyday.  To date, it has received 34,500 views!!  Yahoo!
I won't have as much time to devote to it in the near future, but am hoping to be able to find and showcase a lot more artists up until the end of this year.  Hopefully it will benefit them all in time for the holidays.

Which is why I am featuring KeepsakeDesignsbyCMM as post number 501!  Cindy was very instrumental in helping a great number of artists be seen and gain followers on Etsy.com over the years.  She worked tirelessly to promote her fellow artists via team threads, treasuries, and Polyvore, you name it.  I know I would not have the customer base that I do without the work Cindy does to help others.

So Happy Holidays Cindy!  And Merry Christmas!  I hope you have the best year ever!
