I know you know about my sponsors and their shops, but here’s a little more indepth about who they are – isn’t that a fun thing to know…I just love “knowing” who I’m buying things from 🙂

I’m Ashley, and I run The Shine Project. I raise money for inner city students to go to college, and inspire people to go after their dreams. You can read more about that here: http://www.ashlemieux.blogspot.com/search/label/nonprofit. I am crazy about my husband, my dog, thrifting, and Tim Mcgraw. You’ll find a little about all of that on my blog. I sell necklaces and shirts that remind us all to shine, and help send kids to school.
Bev (Mominizer) – We are a crazy family of 6 with 3 boys and a princess. I started my business in 2005 after spending 15 years as a corporate Realtor and wanting more time with my family and to follow my creative passions.
Sewing and crafting have always been a part of my life, thanks to my seamstress mom who supplemented our family’s income by sewing bridesmaids dresses in our childhood home. It wasn’t until I had a baby girl that I became addicted to sewing, and the sewing pattern adventure followed soon after my addiction began. My goal is to combine creativity and frugality into a simple tutorial that will teach you to sew boutique clothing without boutique prices. Happy sewing! Liz (Little Lizard)
Stacey (Hadley Grace Designs): I LOVE to sew. My mom taught me when I was a little girl and I have been doing it ever since. I wanted to make patterns to help beginners (and all sewers!) have the opportunity to sew handmade items for their loved ones because there is just something special about something handmade! I am a mom of 3 kiddos – 4 1/2 years, 2 1/2 years and 2 months. I love being busy and between my shop and kiddos, there is no time for slacking!! 🙂 Happy Sewing!
Cynda (ArtWildflowers): From the time I held the first crayon in my hand as a tiny tot I have always been fascinated with any & all types of arts & crafts! 25 years ago I taught myself to paint & now paint for living selling very detailed glazed & kiln-fired botanical-wildflower pottery & tiles for installation. (Thus my name “ArtWildflowers”)… Lately I have been selling Feather Clips, Hair Tinsel & other craft supplys on etsy. I love to supply other artists & feel strongly about always offering the very best customer service possible!
My name is Amber (All4MyKids) I live in Lee’s Summit, Missouri and I’m a mom to 3 wonderful kids. I love being able to work from home with a company that specializes in helping mommies be there for their kids “little moments”. It’s fun for me to help other moms work towards being home too! I also enjoy playing games with friends and family, decorating, crafts and anything outside.
My name is Kristin (Create By The Yard Fabrics)and I live in Minneapolis, MN. I passions in life are traveling, the Green Bay Packers, and fabric. I opened Create by the Yard, my fabric supply shop specializing in organic, recycled and designer fabric, in May 2011. I only learned how to sew a year ago, but quickly developed a love for the various fabric styles, colors and designs. Opening a fabric store was a natural fit for me.
