Happy Sunday, everyone!
We’ve been having some trouble lately with the tumblr site. Because this is a combined-blog, we haven’t been able to reblog posts, or follow any of our new internet friends. So we’ve made an entirely new tumblr on a separate account and while it’s still in the works, we’d love for you guys to follow us there instead to keep up with all of the new stuff that’s coming! meadowlark-ms.tumblr.com
Hope to see you soon!
So, okay, we’ve been pretty lazy lately. But with both of us trying our hardest to figure out school, and where we’re going to live in the next six months (No home = No crafts! Eeek), things have been pretty crazy. We aren’t on any type of hiatus, though, and we’re still just as thrilled as ever to get this going and growing and all that. With all of that being said, updates:
We were hoping that we’d be up to enough likes/followers to start our giveaway in time for Christmas, but it doesn’t look as though that’s going to happen. Starting out and gaining a fanbase is tough, especially for those of us who do handmade. So we’re asking to do a trade with all of you! If you will: link us in a post on either tumblr, storenvy, facebook or twitter; or simply reblog one of our posts (but be sure to send us a quick message so we know you’ve done it), we will link you in a post on all of the above, and even put your button/link on our page for a while. So whether you’re another small business looking for promotion, or just a fan who wants more followers- Show us some love and we’ll give it right back!
In addition to that, I know I say this every time, BUT, I promise, after the holidays we’ll be up and running full-time. With everything going on lately, it’s been hard for us to keep our promises of new products and pictures and so on. But a full site makeover is in the works, and we hope you’ll all stick around long enough to see it <3
Ah, yay! We’re so close to 50 likes on Facebook! We realize that may not be much but as a new local business, we’re so appreciative to have even that. PLUS, 50 likes marks the start of our giveaway contest! Be sure to stop by the page and press that little blue “like” button, and tell your friends to do the same.
No #FollowFriday posts today, sad face. But hopefully with a few contributions we’ll be back on it next week! So don’t forget to leave your URL- Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Storenvy, Etsy, Blogger, WHATEVER!- in our ask box so we can include your businesses, too. Support local and handmade!
We hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving break. We’re definitely keeping our little hands busy during the time off, and all recently finished products will be posted on our Storenvy page very soon! Thanks so much for all of the recent support, likes, and reblogs. It means the world to us <3
Earrings galore! Check out these and tons more on our Storenvy page <3
Sorry for the absence lately. We’ve both been really busy but, as always, still working hard on new goodies. Meadowlark officially has a Paypal account, meaning online buying is now an option; and an Ebay page in the works, just to make it easier. Don’t forget to like our Facebook page to stay updated on what’s coming next, and get us one “like” closer to our Facebook contest!
Also, getting ready for our FollowFriday post- leave comments in our Ask box and we’ll check out your blogs and include them, too!
Our newest pictures have been posted (be sure to check them out on Facebook, too and give us some feedback) and it’s Friday! In honor of that, here are a few links to some of our favorite sites and some super talented friends, enjoy!
Check out Kayla Gates of The Fancy Fox on Facebook for adorable crocheted goodies and follow her personal blog as well for inspiration, photos and fun projects. Since you’ll already be on Blogger, you can browse Brooke and Dawn’s blogs, too for daily inspiration posts and some more southern antics. Also, Dawn’s Etsy shop, Hello Dearie, is absolutely precious.
My favorite DIY/style/life blog: abeautifulmess
And a few more just for fun: Spotted Moth, Skunkboy, Violetbella, Sometimes Sweet
That concludes our #FollowFriday!
If you’re in the McComb/Summit area this weekend, be sure to stop by Seneka’s Creepy 16th at Dixie Springs Lounge&Cafe on Sunday to see all of the new stuff for yourself and grab some before it’s all gone!
Be sure to include us in all of your Follow Fridays as well (Twitter: @meadowlarkMS) and don’t forget- 25 followers starts a free tumblr giveaway; 50 Facebook likes will do the same.Spread the word and have a fantastic weekend!
