Time for a Happy HeART Giveaway, my lovelies! And this one is sooo great! Australian artist, blogger, Scoutie Girl contributor and social media expert Jess Van Den is launching a cool new Crafty & Connected e-course designed to help creative entrepreneurs learn the ins and outs of social media. During the six week course, which starts May 2nd, she’ll teach you how to navigate the waters of Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, StumbleUpon, online forums and more.

Jess herself turned her creative hobbies into a thriving business and she credits much of her growth to the power of social media. She’s offering an early bird discount on the course through April 20th. But she also is generously giving one of YOU access to the Crafty & Connected e-course for FREE! Thank you, Jess!
