Hallmark Magazine has a 1 page feature devoted to an artist/artisan each issue called Things We Make. I was lucky to be chosen for the December/January 2009 issue. Here's a link to the article-Sublime Suds.
I recently started selling my products on a new selling venue, 1000 markets I'm really excited about it. It's similar to Etsy but is brand new and is juried, so no resellers or "made in China" products there. The vendors can join specialty markets, like "Cheesecrafters" or "Artisans form the San Juan Islands". I've suggested a Handmade Soap & Skincare Market. Each shop has a blog feature and a facebook type "wall" where people can comment on your shop or items which adds to the community feel there.
