Meet the Sponsors!

   This is the first of the three months in which all sponsor places are free for swaps. I want to thank everyone who has opted to participate so far, and yes, spots are still left! See the sponsor page for details of how many free, swappable ads are left - but any swaps requested after today will not go live until July.

   Each month I'd like to introduce my sponsors to you, and ask a single specific question each month so that we can all get to know their individuality a little better.

Hi, I'm Ciera! A freelance graphic designer who also loves blogging and photography. I was born and raised in New Orleans but have been living in Boston for the past year. I have no idea how long I’ll be here or where I will go next (one of the fun things about working for myself)! Things that make me happy are traveling, the color green, typography, festivals, exploring Boston and keyboard shortcuts. Please stop by my 
blog and say hello!

Q. The scariest place I have ever been was New Orleans after hurricane Katrina. I did not know if life would ever return to normal or if my family and I would be able to return home. I love New Orleans so much and it was very hard to imagine that it may never be the same. Luckily, the city came together in a time of disaster and it is growing stronger than ever!

Hello there! My name is Hillery and I am a 25 year old crafty lady. I live and work out of my attic flat with my super awesome husband, and our sweet little black cat, Nori. We live near the banks of Lake Ontario in the beautiful town of Kingston, Ontario (Canada).
    I have always been a crafty girl and with my love of birds and hand sewing I've been led to design and create feathered fascinators and head pieces. I use gorgeous, natural feathers that I have collected from aviaries and farms all across Ontario and the US.
    I love the Etsy experience because it connects me with other individuals who share my interests, and I can explore many different kinds of creative works. I have also had a lot of fun designing and sharing my head pieces over the last few months and am now working towards creating a jewelry line.
Because Etsy has made it possible to explore and integrate social media, design, and, best of all blogging, I have have been blogging about crafts and living a hand made life for a steady six months now and I love it!

Q. One of the scariest experiences I have ever had was when a friend dared me to climb through a storm drain when I was 9. Georgia, the state I grew up in, is covered with poisonous plants, snakes, and spiders so I thought, surely, I wont make it out alive! I remember how time seemed to pass so slowly as I cautiously climbed through the drain, anxious to get to the other side! Even though, I made it out without a scratch, the experience still left me with a fear of spiders!


My name is Megan Dempsey. I am from a small town in Mississippi called Weir (pronounced Where). When I tell people that I always get the joke "Where's Weir?"
I am engaged (will be married at the end of this summer) to my wonderful husband to be Chad. We have been together for 6 years and have a beautiful daughter named Olivia June (she is 2), who my business JuneBug Country Couture is named after. Her nickname is JuneBug.
I have been doing my business part time during school at Mississippi State University. I just graduated from there majoring in Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising with an emphasis in Fashion Design. I will be doing an internship at L.A. Green Boutique in Starkville, MS starting Monday.
I love desiging and making clothing and accessories. I have always been creative. I also enjoy drawing and painting in my spare time.
I also do freelance patternwork for people. I am currently working on a pattern for a wedding bolero for a friend and patternwork for a company in Alabamba for a pair of coveralls.
I am still fairly new to Etsy and have enjoyed every second of it. It is such a great place to connect to other sellers and buyers.

Q. This was kinda tough and I had to think real hard on the answer. I would have to say the scariest place I have been is to a local cemetary at night. The reason I was there at night was the people I was with were ghost hunters. We were there trying to communicate with and see ghosts. It was my first time doing this. It was interesting but scary at the same time. I strongly believe in "ghosts" and stuff and the whole time I could feel "something". We never heard anything out of the "ghosts" but in some of the pictures taken you could see "orbs". I don't know if I will ever do it again, but it was a fun experience.

I am Linda Pruitt from the Portland Oregon area. I am a creative (young) grandma who likes to stay busy all the time: fun and games with the grands--twenty five of them!--and of course, sewing and quilting! I love hand embroidery too, so I do crazy quilts and embroidery art hoops for fun. I've been selling on Etsy for nearly four years; currently branching out selling wholesale to local shops. I am also a blogger. I love writing.

Q. I think the scariest place I have ever been when I was six was my own bedroom! We had a closet with a curtain closure, which didn't quite close all the way. At night I got scared because I thought there were monsters in my closet looking out a me through the crack in the curtains! So you might say the scariest place I have ever been was in my mind!

Hey there people – my name is Sarah and I blog over at A Cat-Like Curiosity. I blog about all kinds of things really – DIY projects, Monday Mantras, Etsy Lustings and many many more things. Basically whatever pops into my head.
The main focus of my blog is one of curiosity (hence the title). I am always looking for new things to try, new ways to look at life, and new goals to achieve. My blog began when I stumbled across the book The Secret. I started to write as a way to document my experiences of trying to live with the techniques of this way of life
I started to try and use the techniques in the book to overhaul my outlook on life, and the results were just what I needed. I have been on a journey from being seriously depressed to being full of energy, ideas and inspiration in a very short space of time.
Since starting, I have read and gotten involved in lots of inspirational Life Changing ideas – some I have blogged about, others are more private. But the journey itself has been pretty cool.
So – what can you expect to find over on my blog?
Training reports, links to my Etsy store, my Debt-Free ASAP plan and much, much more.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek into my blog and my world. Feel free to head on over and say hello.
Many Thanks to Kim for letting me introduce myself to you guys.

Q. The scariest place is probably walking through the desert in Oman in the middle of the night, trying to get from my Bedouin style hut to the toilet block without stumbling across a scorpion or a camel spider. Yuk!!
