...and then (cue scary monster music) they got bigger, and bigger, and BIGGER...
I've gone back and forth with myself about accepting sponsors for a while. Of course it's enticing for my own benefit...but one of the main themes of my blog is being frugal and creating beautiful things for your home and fun things for your kids while spending little to no money...that doesn't jive well with advertising.
"So why did you do it?!?" you ask. Well...I've had several good friends start up shops and online businesses...ladies I know personally, who I know to be wonderful and accomplished people who are providing unique, high-quality handmade products at reasonable prices. I want to help them get the word out, and I want to let you know about products you might be interested in. In every case, they are providing products at prices I would be willing to pay.
I've known for Shirleen of Shirleen Bland's Art Studio for years, but just recently became familiar with her amazing art work. She has beautiful, reasonably priced prints of her own paintings available for sale, or she can paint you custom painting.
I know Maile of Boutique Academia from Hubby's days in graduate school at UC Berkeley. She has amazing taste and her shop carries beautiful jewelry and other fun things relating to all things in math and the sciences.
