Another Successful Trade & Replace!!!!

Once again, the traders have indulged in their addiction!!! Trade, trade and more trading went on all week long! Not to mention the chats and the support amongst these super fine etsy shops!
Some of the more memorable moments...
- Raevyn's awesome treasury
- Christina and sunraven's 'tini avatars
- Indulgent's monkey farts
- distracting butercups from her car problems
- lucie39 trading till she was too pooped to post
- beadsidesmyself and chocolate milk
- Ak getting addicted to Pouncing team members
- kolton's one eyed monsters
- shaving our legs (again? WTF?)
- and of course, food - cinnamon rolls, biscotti, and the ubiquitous FUDGE!!!!
Stay tuned to help us plan for the next Trade & Replace! We'll have a "choose the date" poll up soon, so start posting your comments here if you want to be one of the 12 to start us off next time!!!!!
Thanks again to everyone who kept us going and to all who traded!!!! Whoot whoot!
Trade on!!!

Our New Tag!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the team has voted and we have our new TAG!
It looks like "TRADE ON" is the winner!!! It was quite the race till the end, but we finally have a tag to call our own! So, all etsy traders, please include "TEAM TRADE ON" as one of your tags on all items in your shop that you would be willing to trade - that way we can all find each other easily! And, once we promote the tag, others on Etsy can find and trade with us too!
Thanks to everyone again for voting - and get ready for the Trade And Replace coming up April 20th!!!!!
As always, ready, set, TRADE ON! xoxoxo Ak and Muffin
