I am sure many of you have heard of all the changes at etsy. I like etsy but I am wary of what will happen down the road. So I have started diversifying and opening other shops. Most places you just pay a fee and open shop but Craftinest requires you to be juried and get votes. 
I really am not good at self-promotion; it goes against my personality to beg for votes for anything BUT..I would really love it if you could click on the link and vote for me. Just go to the link and it will display hearts that you hover over and click to vote.
Thank you all in advance

I voted too.  It is apparently the last day today (Sunday, 10-13).  How many votes do you need?

Here is an excerpt from the application page:

"A minimum of 100 votes and a final average of 3.5 hearts is required to meet our minimum qualification.  Once the voting period is closed, each qualified application is personally reviewed to ensure a good fit within the marketplace.   We look at more than just the final vote – the product, the pictures and the sellers background (ie. their feedback, fan base and sales on other sites) are all reviewed.  It some cases, an application may be veto’d (either for or against) by admin."

 At this time I have 128 votes so I have the required minimum - now it goes to the jury. I should know by tues or weds. I really appreciate all the people who have voted for me. Thank you all!

voted for you. I like the idea of having to get votes presumably the stuff in their shops is slighlty more selective than in some.

Thank you, Cara! 
Thats what I am hoping for. They do not allow you to sell supplies (I don't know about handmade supplies)only the finished product. sadly though I saw some shops that were really good and they didn't look like they had enough votes, so I voted where I could. I have had to jury into craft shows before; I think it is a good idea.
