.:Market Yourself Monday - Gift Box Canvas':.

First, an order of business. Sumo's Sweet Stuff is going to be on maternity leave starting sometime in March. I'm due at the end of the month, but who knows when baby sister will choose to come. I have a lot of posts lined up to keep with the regular schedule, but I'm also looking for guest bloggers to fill in my Friday spots. I have any date open after March 12th. If you are interested in guest blogging, please send me an email at: sumossweetstuff@gmail.com. It would really be open to whatever you'd want to post about: a project, a tutorial, a business feature, a recipe - anything! I'd love to get these lined up soon!

Now, on to Market Yourself Monday...

I've seen the idea to use gift boxes as canvas' a few places on the internet. I think it's such a great idea for a cheap way to spruce up a room. My husband and I's bedroom is kind of the junk room of our house. We live in a small townhome, and whatever doesn't fit well often gets crammed in our bedroom somewhere. I've been looking for some simple ways to add a little bit to our room so it doesn't feel so trashy, and this was perfect! I love how they turned out!

I'll be posting the tutorial tomorrow!

Now it's your turn to share! What have you been working on? Grab my button, and link back to here! I'm excited to see! Please only link up to your specific posts! Last week, some people were having trouble with my button. If it doesn't work taking it from this post, try grabbing it from my sidebar.

  14. Congrats on your baby's soon to be arrival. I have some guest spots I am doing in March --every Friday but if you wanted me on April 2 I could do that. cheri@itssoverycheri.com

    I am letting everyone know--if you haven't signed up at the new blog, you need to RE-Sign up. Google doesn't let you take your followers with you. If you have already done so --sorry for mentioning it. I am going back and forth between the old and new blog plus my old and new e-mail and I can't keep it all straight. I am hoping to have the old blog finished up (moving everything) and closed down this week.
