Recommended Shops: Evy’s Tree Blog Sponsors

This past month Evy’s Tree has done something that we have never done before….we opened up our sidebar for blog sponsors. I have to be honest and say I just never thought anyone would want to advertise on our blog, but one morning as I was doing my devotional for the day, I felt impressed to pray about opening up my sidebar for advertising and giveaways. I spent some time praying and thinking about it and decided that I would go ahead and do it. Just after I had decided that, I opened up my inbox and there was an email from a shop asking if I would do a giveaway on my blog….So I felt that was a confirmation.

I sent out an email to a few friends and mentioned that I was open for advertising on my blog once. I haven’t formally announced that I am taking sponsors, so I guess this is my formal announcement. :) If you are interested in being a blog sponsor, feel free to contact me {amy@evystree.com}. If you don’t have a button, no worries! Brooke, my graphic designer, can make one for you for a small fee. Hope this helps some of you out. I am also offering monthly giveaway spots for an additional fee.

Every month I will highlight the new sponsors for that particular month. So I introduce this month’s new sponsors:

Doodle Design Shop

Meet Jenny

Here’s what Jenny has to say about her business:

I am a thirty something mama of two spunky kids (Brayden age 8 and Kennedy age 7,) wife to a loving minister husband and an overcommitted crafter.  The Doodle Design Shop studio is in our home so this business is truly a family affair.

 Doodle Design Shop started 6 years ago as a hand painted custom artwork company.  I  traveled to craft fairs and slowly starting branching out to all types of hand painted designs.  However, a few years ago I began making fabric flower pins (thanks to a crafty friend who knew my love for fabric flowers) and it grew from there.  Before I knew it, flower hats had taken over Doodle Design Shop.  Today, we produce several lines of fabric flower hats as well as hair accessories.  Our team consists of other mamas like me who work from home to make fabulous flower finds just for you! 

 I couldn’t do this business without the support of my entire family.  My mom and dad have done all kinds of tasks to make this business a success, especially a lot of kid-wrangling.  And of course, my ever supportive husband continually wades through piles of fabric and hats with a smile on his face.  I am truly blessed!

Like a Bubbling Brook Blog

Meet Jaime

Here’s what Jaime says about herself:

My name is Jaime, and I’m a very blessed homeschooling mama with a master’s degree.   After being accepted for doctoral work, God began to give me a greater vision for motherhood, and He graciously opened the doors for me to be a stay-at-home mother instead.  I did work outside the home briefly as a part-time adjunct professor, teaching communications at a private university. 

I’ve been married for over eleven years to the man that I adore.  He’s the pastor of a vibrant church body and loves God and his family with his whole heart.  We have two boys, both of whom God gifted to us by way of adoption. Children are such a blessing, and I am humbled and overjoyed that God saw fit to entrust these boys to us.  I thank Him everyday for them.  

We live a simple life compared to most, I think. We try very hard to be good stewards and glorify God with our health, finances, and time.  We believe that it is primarily our responsibility to train and disciple our children.  We began homeschooling our oldest son in 2009, and it brings me so much joy to witness those “aha!” moments in his life as he learns and grows. We try to eat wholesome, “real” foods.  Many of the foods you’ll find in our kitchen are all natural, and almost everything we eat at home is made from scratch.  I try to share a healthy, “real food” recipe at least twice per month.

 I love to cook, bakeread, tend to my tiny garden, consignment shop, and cozy up with my family. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, as I sit curled up on the couch, Bible in hand, in the early morning hours. As a stay-at-home mama with a graduate degree, I have an insatiable itch to study and research just about any worthy thought out there. I also enjoy the challenge ofliving well on less.

Emily Camera//Mary Kay Consultant

Meet Emily  {You might remember her as a model from Evy’s Tree Photo shoots:)}

I am a mom and Mary Kay Consultant who believes is it important to take care of your skin and feel good about yourself. I may be wiping noses and changing diapers all day, but I’m going to feel good about myself while doing it! Mary Kay skin care and cosmetic products have done wonders in waking up my skin after years of trying a plethora of brands. I am now wanting to “pass it on” by being able to offer the products, as well as advice about skin care, to other busy women.

Need some Mary Kay? Be sure to send her an email {emilycamera@marykay.com} or visit her site HERE.

I hope you all enjoy those sponsors! PLEASE head over and check out their shops/blogs. I know they would love and appreciate your business. Remember, when you support a small business you don’t just support at business, you support a young family, who is often doing their best to make it.

Thanks everyone for all your love and support. You all are the best! xoxo
