Tips For Linking Project

If you do not have a blog or website to take photos from, the link system will allow you to add photos from a photo hosting website such as Photobucket or Flickr. Just click the middle tab when the pop up box comes up and add the URL for that photo.

Linking from Facebook will work as long as you take the off the https:// at the beginning of the link. Then you will need to choose a photo from your computer (the very right tab in the pop up window.) Let me know if this isnโ€™t working for you.

The โ€œNameโ€ part can either be your name, or the name of your craft. Either one works!
I just wanted to let you know so youโ€™re not like me and put your own name when you mean to have a name for the craft. ๐Ÿ™‚

After youโ€™ve linked up your craft, make sure your link works. If you are having troubles with it, send me an email at
