in full bloom
indie biz feature and link up!!

today i am excited. super excited!

it is saturday first of all and that always makes me happy! the weather is gorgeous and sunny. as you read this, i am wheeling and dealing at the youth rummage sale at our church. we have one each year to raise money for summer missions.

so - if you are in the west monroe area, please come to mcguire umc on arkansas road buy some of our stuff. we gots lots of it. ;)

but the BIGGEST reason i'm stoked about today is that i can finally introduce you to the super-awesome brainchild that kelsey (at poofy cheeks) and i have been cookin up in our crafty cauldrons behind the scenes.

we are excited to roll out....

in full bloom: helping grow your indie biz!

every other week kelsey and i will both be featuring a hand-picked handmade shop on our blog and hosting a linky party for you to link up your shop! we want to help spread the word about what you are doing and help grow your sparkly slice of the internet.

since we are co-hosting this shindig - if you link your shop up here it will also show up on kelsey's blog post. here are a couple of guidelines for linking up:

1. link up shops/shop platforms only. please do not link to a specific item, a blog post about your shop, your blog (unless your shop platform is hosted on your blog) or anything other than your beautiful shop.

2. after you link up, visit two or three of the other shops that have linked up and tweet, pin, or facebook about your favorite item from their shops!

3. if you have a blog and want to help spread the word, feel free to add this button to your sidebar:

are you linking up your shop?
share the button on your blog!

make sure to check in next saturday for our first shop feature and linky party! in the mean time - we'd be thrilled if you tweeted about it (use #infullbloom), shared this post on your facebook page or pinned the image on pinterest to help get the word out!

what are your plans for this awesome saturday? it is a great day to get outside! hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I am really excited about this. I love finding new shops and helping spread the word about them! I put the button on my sidebar. :)
