November Connections

This month I am honored to be sponsoring FIVE fabulous blogs once again! Look for the DA ad in the sidebars of these wonderful sites, and watch for their sponsor-themed giveaways/coupon codes to snag some DA swag.

Pixie Mama
Polly over at Pixie Mama is a fun lady blogging from North Wales about art, homemade crafts and food, life, motherhood, and pretty/inspiring things. Her shop is full of Bohemian-esque, vintage-inspired clothing and jewelry. You should check out her blog and follow her on Twitter: @pixie_polly

After Nine to Five
Ashley from After Nine to Five is the queen of self-employment, better blogging tips, fun guest posts, awesome giveaways, and yummy things. She also offers e-books and e-courses, and has a shop full of accessories and prints. Plus she’s just a cool, friendly chica. 🙂 Go check out her site, you won’t regret it. You can also find her on Twitter: @afterninetofive

Through a Photographer’s Eyes
I recently won a print and some sponsor ad space from Misty’s blog and shop (from Ashley’s blog above!), and I’m glad because it introduced me to Misty’s work. She’s a wife and mama and also a professional photographer in the San Diego area. She hosts a weekly photo contest, and her shop is full of beautiful nature shots, among other things. Check our her site. You can also find her on Twitter: @Misty_Dawn09

Little Luck Tree
Shannon over at Little Luck tree runs a very positive blog sharing all things creatively inspiring (crafts, fashion, DIY projects, life thoughts, etc.). She’s got distinct style, fabulous hair that I’m jealous of, and a very upbeat outlook. Go look! You can also find her on Twitter: @luck_tree

Miss Cindy Lou of eLousions is a feisty Puerto Rican chica blogging her way through thrifting, vintage fashion, photography, DIY projects and more. She also has a shop where she sells her vintage finds. Check out her site, and go see her on Twitter: @elousions
