Meet the new family members!

I am so excited - tomorrow marks the beginning of advertising on this blog!

I started thinking about a month ago whether or not I should monetize my blog.  I quickly realized that if I were going to do this, it would only be with shops that I frequent myself and those that I trust.

I called upon my favorite shops (in alphabetical order) - Don and Chris' Old Stuff Only, Manto Fev, Paper Flea Market and Silver Crow Creations.  These are online shops that sell ephemera and other collage items, and I love them all!

Here's the best part about their advertising - they're doing it for YOU.  I thought that instead of me getting paid for them to have their logo on my site, I would love to have them show you how great they are.  What does this mean for you?  Well, all four of my wonderful advertisers are doing gift certificate giveaways throughout the year!

What better way for me to show you how much I love these sites myself than to give you, the reader, an opportunity to see for yourself if you haven't already?

So, throughout the week, I will highlight a different advertiser every day.  Each shop brings something unique and wonderful to the table and by visiting these sites you'll discover exactly what I mean.  Be prepared to get lost in their shops for hours, just like I did!

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank all four of these wonderful shops for agreeing to this arrangement.  I feel it's a win-win for everyone involved!
