#crafterminds • • about 9 minutes ago Missed the #crafterminds chat. Boo. about 9 minutes ago Thanks guys! I'm excited to meet some of you at #snapconf this weekend. Say hi if you're going to be there :) #crafterminds about 10 minutes ago I took 10 minutes to take the #crafterminds DIY survey! Let’s learn more about our niche! http://t.co/SeAWI11k about 11 minutes ago Bye ladies! Thanks for the chat! #crafterminds about 12 minutes ago @CraftLeftovers I've always summarized, and nobody has ever complained. I think it helps if you do it from the beginning. #crafterminds about 12 minutes ago @crafterminds That's my issue too, I generally don't like it. Though the way design sponge does it is really smart. #crafterminds about 12 minutes ago @BalancingHome I'm conflicted about it. From a survey I sent out, half of the replies said they didn't like it. #crafterminds about 13 minutes ago @BalancingHome depends on the price and if I like the product. #crafterminds about 13 minutes ago RT @crafterminds: And sign up for craft/DIY niche-SPECIFIC sponsored post campaigns, Blueprint Social: http://t.co/3JeUwLnf #crafterminds about 13 minutes ago RT @crafterminds: & to sign up for craft/DIY niche-SPECIFIC sponsored post campaigns, Blueprint Social: http://t.co/gv3bntNH #crafterminds about 13 minutes ago Thanks for the chat ladies!
