IMPORTANT!! New requirement for members

To make it easier to communicate important & time-sensitive information to members, we are now going to add another requirement for joining the team. From now on, everyone must join the message board to become a member of the team. This will allow me to email everyone when needed. The board only allows me to send emails every 5 days, so this will guarantee members that they won't be bombarded by emails from me. Existing members will have until the end of June to join. I think this is a reasonable, minimal request of members. Hopefully everyone can do this! If you need help with joining, feel free to contact me.

Team Treasury #14

I was able to get us this treasury today. That makes this #14 for our team. Woo hoo!!

The Animal Place fundraiser

Roni of Daisy Wares is hosting a fund raiser with the Bay Area Vegetarians Group for the Animal Place in Northern California. The Animal Place is moving to a better sanctuary for the animals and needs funds to make a nice down payment on the property. The land they have now is over grazed, too small and the hot weather is taking its toll on the animals. The place they are moving to will give them a better opportunity to rescue more farm animals. For more information on this situation please visit:

She is asking if anyone has a vegan product they would like to donate for this fundraiser. They will sell the product at the fund raiser and give 100% to the Animal Place. They are also looking for raffle items.

If interested please e-mail her at
They also ask that you include a handful of business cards so they can let everyone know where the product is coming from and hopefully you can make a few new customers.

*Thank you to Jen of Jak Random Art & Design for writing this blog entry up!*

Not only are we a team, but we're a team of super vegans. Having so many treasuries with the group being so young just goes to prove it! Jeanette of Vegan Dish and Vessels & Wares was kind enough to snag this one for us. Thanks Jeanette!! It can be found here for a few more days.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I'd like to thank all of the team members that have been participating in one way or another. It means a lot that although our team is a "laid back" one without participation requirements that so many of you use the team tag, make treasuries, help with promoting the team, post on the message board and more. I think it goes to show that vegans create strong communities! Just scroll on down this page and you'll see how many treasuries we've had lately. Very impressive!

I'd like to give an extra special thanks to Melanie of The Coma Girl Designs for making so many of our lovely graphics, creating the facebook group and setting up a team blog ring. Thanks so much, Melanie!!

For those of you that are members and haven't been as involved, I'd love to see you on the message board more. Don't be shy! I'd also love to see more interviews come my way. If you need the questions, just convo me & I'll send them your way.

Go team!

Yet another team treasury!!

Our team is on fire lately with the team treasuries! This makes #11 and was made by Roni of Daisy Wares. It can be found here for a few more days. Thanks so much Roni!

We have a Blog Ring!

Melanie from The Coma Girl Designs was awesome once again and made us a blog ring. Thank you, Melanie!! If you're a member of our team and have a blog, please add your blog to the ring!

Two, count them TWO, team treasuries!

I was lucky enough to snag us two team treasuries early this morning! Please excuse the bad grammar on the second one. Like I said, it was early morning when I did these. :) This makes ten team treasuries for us now and our team is only three months old. Wow! They can be found here and here for the next three days. Go team!

Team Tag Change

Etsy now has a team tag program, so to take advantage of this, our team tag will now be "veganetsy team". The only change is that we are adding "team" to our tag. "Veganetsy" should still be one word, with "team" as the second word.

Please change your listings whenever you get a chance and if you aren't using the team tag yet, please do!

If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks everyone!
