8 In Sponsors

February Sponsors

Hello!  I’m here to share a little more info on this month’s sponsors. Before I begin I want to give a little background as to why I do this {allow advertisements on my blog}. First, I will say that it has been an absolute pleasure to meet and correspond with each of the ladies over the last few months. I appreciate their hard work and their creativity. I’m honored to be able to share this place with them. Second, it is a financial blessing to our family. Third, it is blessing to me to in some way support those who are working from home in their endeavors to stay home with their children while still bringing in financial support. I’ve told them and I may not have ever made it clear on here that I do not offer giveaways from sponsors, the reason for that is multifaceted. One reason being, I don’t want to change the overall feel of the blog. Second being, several giveaways a week is not something that I think would be beneficial to the blog. I also do not mention them more than once a month. At the beginning of each month I have devoted one post to the sponsors. As many of you know, with Google Reader and other blog reading applications many people read without ever coming to my actual site. It is my pleasure to make their presence known through one post a month. I will always make it clear that it is a post written about the sponsors… and so here it is… a post devoted to my sponsors! Thank you, ladies for your information and support!!

::Blessed Be the Name Children’s Clothing::

Ashley Eiler owns and operates Blessed Be the Name and Favorite Laundry and has become a good friend of mine. I’m delighted to have her on the list of sponsors this month!! Blessed Be the Name is a trunk show children’s clothing company with online availability. They specialize in custom clothing for infants and children from six months to size 10.

Custom t-shirts for children {& adults}!  When you purchase tees from Smitten & Company, not only will your children be sporting original designs, but they will be made with the highest quality materials on the softest, thickest shirts around.   Boys and girls love them just as much as Moms do!  Tara also has added dresses for girls up to a size 6 that go perfectly with leggings and tights.  And if you’re already thinking about Spring, she has ruffled bloomer sets for baby girls that were very popular among Moms last summer! 

::jaC Jewelry::

 In Janna’s own words: I design and make unique jewelry for any occasion. I also design bridal and bridesmaids’ jewelry to match the bride’s and bridesmaids’ dress color and style.  My one-of-a-kind and limited edition designs feature sterling silver or gold-plated metals and natural and handmade components, including freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones and lampwork beads.  I love to add a splash of color to my pieces; in addition to the classic blacks, whites and browns, I carefully select a variety of colors such as bright reds, deep purples and lustrous greens that portray a certain feeling and allow you to express how you feel that day.  I look forward to sharing my passion with you!

::Harris Beach Vacation Rentals::

Harris Properties is a family owned business renting houses on the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan Alabama, the most beautiful beaches in the world! Happy Valentines Month- this month we’re offering: rent any 3 days in the month of May and get 1 day FREE! Mention the code MAYFREEDAY10 when you email or call!


Cute paper goods! Pam loves paper, patterns and colors. She loves modern and traditional. And she loves fonts. She loves trying to find the unexpected yet beautiful way of mixing all of those to create a look that’s unique. She tries to be environmentally conscious and use recycled materials as much as possible. And she, of course, strives to give excellent customer service.


EngLady jewelry combines modern fashion with a hint vintage charm. Katherine lovingly creates each piece using hand-selected gemstones or freshwater pearls with sterling silver. A romantic at heart, her designs are inspired by beauty in its many forms, whether it is an impressionist’s painting, an architectural detail, a stormy sea, or an unfurling flower. She gravitates towards versatile pieces that work equally well for a casual day or a special evening, and this preference is reflected in


In Bethany’s own words… My name is Bethany Hway and I am a graphic designer and the owner of Emmy Lu Design Studio. Emmy Lu Design Studio is  all about providing big style on a small budget! We offer custom stationery of all kinds and varieties. b*spokeis the place where I share my ponderings and rambling of life, home and love. It’s my creative space, and the platform where I offer you a peek into what I’m working on, thinking about, cooking or contemplating. Stop by anytime… I’d love to get to know you!

::Kendall Boggs Fine Art::

Kendall paints large format paintings with molding paste and acrylic.  Sometimes she uses a heavy varnish and many times she throws coffee grinds on the canvas! She is inspired by memories so unless she is painting a painting for someone specifically, she usually doesn’t know what the outcome will be until she is finished.


Christy sells every kind of personalized stationery imaginable and even carries some lines that aren’t on her website.  What makes her shop unique is the customer service you will get.  She will help you find, design or create the perfect card just for you! 

::Pink Peeps Place::

In Catherine’s own words… Pink Peeps Place, my shop on etsy, has been quite an adventure. I have been painting baskets for years and am really enjoying sharing this fun with people outside of my immediate friends, family, town, etc. I love to customize your basket selection with the color scheme you like, your child’s name and any color you pick for the accent colors on the rim & handle. I love seeing the combinations people come up with; and also when they come back to order another basket for a new arrival in their family. Thank you so much for looking!

::Stella Bella::

In Rachel’s own words… Stella Bella Boutique is a jewelry shop that offers pieces that are dainty, bold, and everything in between. All pieces are vintage inspired and custom made. Stella Bella Boutique also does custom orders – all you need to do is ask!

Special Offer: Every order $50.00 and over will receive a free pair of rosebud studs (available in royal blue, coral, teal, and robbins egg blue). **Which by the way, thank you Ellen for my lovely rosebuds… I ♥ them a LOT!!*

    I love your blog! It is my favorite one and I read a lot of them. I have never commented before but I am now. I love,love,love that you don’t do giveaways!!! It is so commercial and just a turn off to me. I am probably in the minority here but I am so happy that you don’t do them! I read them for inspiration. My daughter bought the book you recommended and loves it! I can’t wait to read it when she is done. Her little boy is the same age as your Rover(and just as spirited) and I have three children two older girls and the youngest is a boy just like you. A lot in common and we love your stories, photos, recipes, decorating and inspiration!

    I think it’s great you have advertisers…it is soooooo hard to find things to do that make money when your number one priority is your family. I envy your ability to make money in this way.

    Your hunch was correct. The photos did not appear in my google reader, so I visited the actual site for the first time in a long while. Great way to expose your financial supporters. It worked for me!

    I have to agree with Victoria above. I love reading your blog (found it via Erica’s over a year ago, I think). One thing I truly love about it, other than your honetsly & realness is that it does not feel commercial! You have enough of a following I am sure that you could indeed do so, but you don’t & I respect that. I have actually stopped reading or just skim through some of my “old” favorites bc they are so commercial & shove the advertisers down your throat.

    My lil’Rover (now 6) reminds me so much of JM, he’s a blonde too. 🙂
