We Need Your Help

Community is important. Whether or not you love it or hate it, it's pretty well known that life can't be done all by yourself and if it is, it ends up being messier than it would be otherwise.

It's the same way with business, including this one. Working in isolation results in burnout, lack of growth and frustration. As the years have gone on with this business, we've had wonderful women and men surround us to help - website design, innovative ideas, photography, social media. I didn't understand any of that when this all started 2 1/2 years ago.

Well, we need your marketing help. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to say this, but I STINK at marketing. Just stink. Can you smell me from there?

I can't do it. I'm not cut out for it at all.

And I need your help. Here's the deal.

We need our name to get out there so people will come look at us. We need people to buy our artisans' products so we can maintain a steady flow of work for them. Will you help us? We've got 3 options for you and they are easy peesy!

  1. Put our button up! You can get it off the side of our blog. (or get in touch with us if you'd like to see the options for a blog button.)
  2. Tweet, pin and facebook our items. People love pretty things and when they're purposeful, all the better!
  3. Become a Blogger Ambassador - put our button up with a link (which we'll provide to you) and the resulting sales will get you free stuff to our store.
  4. Become a Business Ambassador - Let your customers know that YOU care about human trafficking and ending it! Put a link to our store (again, we'll provide it) and a generous percentage of the resulting sales will be given to the partner human trafficking organization of your choice.
Mother's Day is quickly approaching and people are searching for great gift ideas, so now is the perfect time to get involved! Want to join our growing list of ambassadors? Let us know here and we'll get you set up! It's fun, free, and yes, with purpose!

PS - Let us know if you're pinning, tweeting, facebooking and/or talking. It's such an encouragement to us. Thank you!


  1. You are most definitely on my "Like Minded" page here, http://hopefulthreads.blogspot.com/p/like-minded.html and I've pinned you to my favorite products too! :)
    Best wishes for continued growth and outreach!

  2. Thank you, Kristy! I added you to our "Beautiful Mentions" section! We appreciate your support!

  3. I'm guessing that you're going to need to get on twitter. I'll bet a teen could help you out with this, tweeting about favorite products or new deals, even just whats going on. I've shared your business on my blog http://theefirewife.blogspot.com/2012/04/some-things-for-you-to-know.html

  4. That's a good idea, Mariah. I'll see if I can find any teens that might be interested. You're listed on our ambassador page, friend! Thank you!
