There is this new site to promote handmade artists called ByHand.me. It is a wonderful community. I found about it through my website on Artfire. You have a blog, clubhouses, spotlights (like etsy treasuries) and forums.
I didn't realize that I was getting much exposure on the site until a Google Alert for my full name popped up for a tutorial that I wrote that I posted. Here's the link to the site that borrowed me http://www.blogher.com/crafting-life-dna-beading-tutorial I'm not sure how Debra Roby found me on ByHand but I am glad that she did.
If you aren't already on ByHand.me come check us out!
