You might have noticed in the last month or so that some sidebar ads have been popping up here on ravenna girls. These our our new sponsor swap partners. I’d love to introduce to you:
Vanessa from Little Gray Pixel. Lately she’s been crossing off the list of 100 movies you should watch before you die, and having beautiful sun-drenched photo shoots. Vanessa has been the most generous sponsor host we could ask for, and we hope she finds a home here as part of the ravenna girls family. Go give her some love!
Jenny from Hank and Hunt. I met Jenny before alt, but we got to party it up a bit while we were there, and she’s fan-tastic. She’s the queen of party crafts and just this week she’s knocked it out of the park with a chalkboard crown DIY and a confetti table cloth over at Oh Happy Day where she is a new contributor. Check out her archives, there are some amazing projects there!
Lyndsey from The Stationery Place. When we went to the Handmade Weekend booksigning last fall, Lyndsey walked right up to us and introduced herself, and it was one of the greatest blogging connections we’ve ever made. New to Seattle, she’s put her heart into getting some of us offline and meeting one another which has been totally awesome. Check out the latest in her Seattle Paper series where she is tracking down “every stationery shop, designer, and distributor in the Northwest”!
Welcome, ladies, we’re so happy to have you!
A note on sponsor swaps: For awhile we’d been sponsoring Vanessa’s blog when at the beginning of the year she announced that she was switching her ad policy to swap only. And that got us thinking: sponsor swaps are a beautiful thing. Ad pricing on small up and coming blogs (like ours) can be all over the place, and the ability to do a swap makes it a less arbitrary process. Plus, this encourages us to feature sponsors that we would also have feature us, in other words, people we heart big time. Its much like swapping blog buttons, but with a monthly commitment to help feature projects and grow each others community. We plan to have a limited number of swaps to start in order to make sure everyone gets lots of love, because no one wants to get lost in a sea of sponsors! A couple times a month we’ll be introducing current and new sponsors as well as highlighting some of our favorite happenings at their blogs.
