I would like to introduce three new sponsors for Skip to my Lou. I can’t thank them enough.  These sponsors will help with the fees to keep this blog going, help pay for crafty supplies and provide just a little money for my family (ie. helps to justify the time I spend on the computer). I hope this site can grow (ie. make sharing crafty ideas a job for me) So if you like the ideas you find here at Skip to my Lou, please pay these sponsors a visit and see what they have to offer.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please e-mail me.

First up, Created by Mom

Motherhood is truly divine, but it can be difficult to remember that while covered in spit up, drowning in dirty dishes & stressing over making ends meet.   Often moms start their own businesses as a way to have more time at home with their families.  The createdbymom.com chic boutique is a classy place for moms to sell the products they have created, while also enjoying the famous mom-vendor discount (20% off any other item in the boutique!).

The Createdbymom.com Chic Boutique was created by a mom to support moms everywhere, creating what they love and succeeding, selling their products in a mom-friendly environment.

The Spotted Box

The Spotted Box, a collective box of family-oriented, eco-friendly samples and gift certificates from independent crafters, all packaged together and sent directly to you!   Each box contains at least 25 different samples and gift certificates from some of the vendors named in the box listings. These are sample-sized products, some are just a single use item, and others are larger. Each month it changes depending on the artisan participants. Check out all of the fun items that will be sampled in the November box.  Your next chance to purchase a box is beginning at noon EST on November 15th.  Once they are sold out, boxes will not be listed until the next month.
