I watched the video and the written instructions on how to add a link and I’m still confused. I do not have a blog, but I do have a Facebook account. Please help! I’m not sure if my entry ever uploaded and if it did I had a difficult time typing in my product description.

Altenew July 28, 2020 - 9:45 PM

Hi, Judy! If you uploaded your project as a Facebook post, you may copy paste the link URL into the empty bar next to “link”. You can also simply upload your image instead if you click on the tab that says “upload”.
Let me know if you have any more questions!
