Your Chance to Win Ad Space!

I was thrilled to meet Sarah over at Blogger Chix Designs, a fun and informative blog for working at home, growing your blog and more! She has been hosting Ad Spot Giveaways for various sites and blogs and you can win great advertising spaces throughout June and July.
Now it’s your chance to WIN a spot right here on Kawartha Beads! One ad space (125x125) will be given away for the duration of 1 month. Only family friendly blogs are eligible to win.

But first, here's more info about me:
I am the proud mommy to an adorable toddler, bead addict and coffee-aholic! I began my blogging adventure as a means to promote the supplies shop that I run in conjunction with my mother and our handmade items. I am lucky to have inherited the creative fever from her and she is my greatest teacher and inspiration. I instantly loved blogging, sharing my thoughts, learning from others and exploring the endless stories behind the computer screens. I launched Kawartha Beads earlier this year after taking some time off from the creative aspect of our business to focus on my little one and evaluate my direction. I really wanted Kawartha Beads to be a resource both for the online community who loves handmade, as well as to offer local information for those in the area. I am continually working to create a balance between the two and am still learning everyday.

The creative flame is hard to extinguish and I’ve found my beads calling me late at night when my little one has gone to bed. I recently opened my own Etsy shop Kawartha Beads to share some of my own treasures while my mom concentrates on her own line of jewelry at Bijoux Designs For You/ Together we still scour the globe for interesting and beautiful beads and findings which we offer in our supplies shop Rouge River Beads (http://rougeriverbeads.etsy.com). Above all else I cherish the time that I have been able to spend with my mom while sharing this adventure together. In addition to expanding our family my long term goal is to be able to open my own bead boutique someday! I’ve always believed that if you follow your dreams and work hard they can come true. Hopefully you will join me in that journey…who knows where we will end up!
