Out with the Old, In with the New
Today is a bittersweet day. Today we are closing the chapter on our monthly subscription service. But when one door closes another opens, which is why we are also excited to introduce our new feature.
For the past year, we have offered a subscription service to craft kits, and it’s been great. Our intent when we first started the subscription was to inspire crafters of all levels to liberate their inner Craftista. We’d like to believe that we were successful in doing so, but we also have found a way of continuing our vision on a much larger scale.
I love the thought that when one door closes, another opens. Over the last 5 months we have been working on a new feature that helps both bloggers AND their readers. How many times have you read an amazing tutorial, only to find yourself searching high and low to get your hands on those same materials? Craftistas has developed a widget that allows you to purchase all of the materials used in an online tutorial, directly from the post. Now you don’t have to be bumped around to various 3rd party sites, and enter your billing and shipping information over and over again–because we all know that’s a HUGE pain!
You can see our widget in action on some of these blog posts:
We are still in development with our widget, meaning we are building the code to make it all work without any hiccups. AND, we are beta testing with a select group of fabulous bloggers. If you’d like to be kept up to date on what we are working on, you can sign up here! Or if you’re interested in testing our widget on your blog, you can email Camille at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of the Craftistas team, we’d like to sincerely thank you for your continued support in helping us achieve our goal of making crafting convenient. Without you, there’d be no Craftistas.
