Sponsor Appreciation | Day One

I want to take time today & tomorrow to say a very big THANK YOU to my current blog sponsors.

These companies, some big and some small, support this blog financially and enable me to continue to build the content here. I am grateful to them and appreciate that they choose to spend their advertising dollars here.

Many of these companies have been around since I first started offering sponsorships a few years back. I'm especially grateful for their continued support.

I asked each of them to share a little something about their company, including something you might not know about them (I learned new things too). Please visit their sites, become a fan on Facebook, follow them on Twitter and give them support them if you have a chance.

I want to begin by featuring Therm-O-Web who is the home-page featured sponsor this month.

THERM•O•WEB | Fabric Fuse Adhesive sheets are great for scout badges, just stick on...no ironing or sewing! Zots Adhesive Dots are great for all sorts of embellishments...look for newly released Zot items soon!

    Thanks for sharing your sponsers. Some of them I have loved forever like Two Peas in a Bucket and some are my brand new favorites like Elle and Shimelle.com. Some I have never heard of and look forward to exploring more.
    Have a great day!

    Ali! Thank you so much for sharing all that with us. The only link I clicked on was the Elle's Studio and let me tell you... it was heaven sent. I have been looking for these same type of tags, I feel like these fit my style and my personality so well. I simply adore them. I just got my first order today and had to come back and thank you for introducing me to them. I can't wait to scrap tonight.
    Thank you and thank them.
