August just flew by and now we are barreling into September! Would you like to sponsor Elsie Marley for this lovely month? The spots are 125 pixels square and $25/month. I try to keep my rates low so little shops and blogs can afford sponsorship. And if you are nervous about getting into advertising, I'm super laid back about it all, so don't worry. Just email me already! email@example.com
Happy September (almost)!
Some very lovely people from the Tea Collection contacted me and asked if I'd like to sample some of their clothes. I very readily and enthusiastically said yes! Years ago I found a blue and white striped shirt for my (then) baby girl at a thrift store. She looked like an adorable little Parisian in it! It was simple and classic and very well made. My daughter wore it forever and then her brother wore it and then her baby brother wore it.
this is what happens when you tell the baby to smile!
The shirt was made by Tea and not only survived three toddlers, but is ready to be passed onto the next. And is still as stylish as ever. Well made children clothes are sadly rare, but clothes from Tea Collection are not only very well made, but soft and comfortable and beautiful too. Is it obvious I'm a big fan? I am and I think you will be too: I'm happy to say that the people at Tea have offered one of my readers a $75 gift certificate to their store! Just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on Wednedsay (Aug. 24th) at noon central time. Good Luck!

Would you like to get on board for August? There is a bit of time (and a bit of space) left! Elsie Marley has over 4500 subscribers and a bunch of followers on twitter and pinterest too. All I'm saying is lots people read this blog! And the lovely people who do like to see what indie shops are out there. Drop me a line if you'd like to show off your shop (or blog) on Elsie Marley:
The sponsor spots are 125 pixels square and #25/month. See? Totally affordable. And I'm laid back about it all, so there is no reason to be afraid. I don't bite. So email me already!
May is going to be a big month on elsie marley. I've got some fantastic interviews scheduled, a round up or two and of course the always amazing Kids Clothes Week Challenge. There are already over 100 people signed up! KCWC has been such a big hit in the past that traffic on the blog doubles for the month. That means over 100,000 pages views! I want you (and your blog or shop) to get in on the action. Sponsor spots for May are 40 dollars because of those super big numbers. I really try to keep the prices low enough that bloggers and indie shops can easily afford it--and I hope you can.
Sponsorship introduces my readers--almost 4000 subscribers to date--to your shop or blog. And it gives me the resources to create tutorials and patterns and all of the good stuff you love about elsie marley. If you are interested please drop me a line at
If you don't have a blog or shop, but would still like to support my crafty endeavors. The best way to do that is subscribe through your email or an RSS reader (there is a subscribe button on the sidebar at the right). Then I know you are out there! And the more subscribers I get the more support I get the more projects you get! Sound good?!
