Etsy Ireland - New Blog Co-ordinator

A big crafty hello to you all! As you may have noted from Lily's previous post, she has stepped down as blog co-ordinator after a very long and productive spell. A big thank you for all your hard work Lilly and something tells me I have big shoes to fill! (gulp!)

Lets get this show on the road by firstly introducing myself. My name is Rebecca O'Hare and I've been a member of the Etsy Ireland team for a number of years now. I run the paper obsessed Etsy shop and blog LuckyRainbowDesigns, which is currently looking a tad bare as I'm in the process of moving house and if you're addicted to craft supplies like I am, then you'll know that organising and packing up your craft room is a long and laborious task! On top of all that, I'm a stationary addict, craft supply hoarder and dog lover and suffer from blog envy all day, every day!

I'm excited to get stuck into the Etsy Ireland blog, meet and interact with more of you great people, inspire you with some interesting posts and generally get to you know you all a little better while working hard to make the Etsy Ireland blog the best it can be. Most importantly, I'm hoping to help drive more traffic to our wonderful blog and corner of the interweb as well as drive some traffic (and sales) to your individual Etsy shops.

I also hope to shake things up a little blog wise, perhaps work a little on the design side of things, provide a new range of posts and increase our social media profile while collaborating with the other great Etsy Ireland co-ordinators.

Feedback as always is welcome and appreciated so drop me a line if you feel the need to do so! As a social media lover you can contact me on a multitude of platforms.Twitter and Facebook are favs but hey, good ole email will do too! ( 

Until next time, happy crafting!
