And Our Sponsors

I can’t say enough about our incredible sponsors. We love them, and value what they do, and we believe in what they provide. They are the BEST of the BEST and we want to take a second to shine a spotlight on them and their wonderful sites!!

We will start out with one of my own personal favorite sponsors this month…Funky Polka Dot Giraffe. Why? Well, I love the name, for starters. I have always imagined a funky polka dot giraffe existed out there somewhere, and now there is proof. Also, I have four daughter…and they all have hair. Hair that needs gorgeous handmade ribbon creations to glam them up, just like the ones offered here. Yummy. That’s all.
