CCCOE says: CA rocks (and it's not just earthquakes!). We are moving and shaking this week with: 1. February Design Challenge is on! Any California shop owner can enter a piece under the topic of "Lucky Charms". Tag it with 'cccoe' and 'februarychallenge', then copy and paste it into the list at the end of this thread Challenge runs through midnight PST February 29. We will announce in this thread how we will handle voting on the challenge. 2. Head's up that our team site is going to have some maintenance! No big restructure, just a simple close and re-open. Why? Our team 'buyer' was upgraded in anticipation of becoming a team shop using one of our members credit card and personal bank info. But we have decided to put the team shop on hold upon Etsy admin advice to all teams discouraging shops until improved team pages are rolled out. To protect the personal banking info of the member, it is best to close the team site and reopen again as just a 'buyer' site. Watch for our logo back soon! 3. Please give some special love to these two shops who support charities: PalleikoDesigns Breast Cancer Awareness Blackbird72's Multiple Schlerosis thread: Our team supports Christine Francisco and her family 4.
