If you would like to join in and write your own review of one of these links or another site you've found that should be on this list, then please email me and I will use your review to create a post. It doesn't need to be an essay, just a few pointers and I will of course include an image or two of your work and a link to your shop within the post by way of thanks!

Don't forget you can add a comment with a link to your own site if it's helpful to crafters/bloggers here and it may get reviewed!
