october sponsorship and spin art

September 21st, 2011

I’m now accepting sponsors for October! Kids Clothes Week Challenge is the second week in October and there are already over 150 people signed up. It looks like there are lots of new people this time around too–yay! I’ve got some super good stuff lined up for the week before KCWC. And there is even some good stuff after it’s over too! October is going to rock your world.

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! Just like in the spring, 125×125 sponsor spots for October are 40 dollars.  I’m also offering a larger 300×300 spot for $150–in case you want to go big. I really try to keep the prices reasonable so that bloggers and indie shops can easily afford it–and I hope you can.

Sponsorship introduces elsie marley’s 4500 subscribers 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 email me at



If you don’t have a blog or shop, but would still like to support this lovely blog, you could subscribe to elsie marley and have posts sent directly to your email or an RSS reader (there is a subscribe button on the sidebar at the right).  The more subscribers I get, the more support I get, the more projects you get! And I get to know you are out there, which makes me happy as can be.

If you made it this far and are still wondering what the pictures are all about.  It’s salad spinner art!  We did a few weeks ago and it’s easy as can be: jam a paper plate in an old salad spinner, blop lots of paint on it, and spin like crazy. Even the two year old got in on the action! I admit I was waiting for my turn too. This is a fairly contained project and you probably could get away with doing it inside, but better to go outside while the weather is nice. I’m sure you know where all your almost empty bottles of paint are–this is a project for them–but I bet you are thinking, “where the hell did I put that salad spinner?…”

    Such a great project Meg. We went to a fair once where they were letting kids do this in an old washing machine but this is a MUCH better way to go (& their little arms get a workout too). I love your space Meg…keep up the great work.

    When I was a kid, I got a Wiz-art for Christmas. It was a glorified salad spinner with a plate in the bottom for holding little squares of paper, and came with six bottles of tempera paint… It was always a fun afternoon with the Wiz-art. The only thing that could’ve made it better would be if the spinner had been clear instead of thick yellow plastic; I wished I could see what happened inside when I pressed the spin knob.
