Small businesses

I wanted to make a quick post today to talk about something I don't often do.  I want to spread the word for a couple of my friends with their small business.  Part of the reason is because I think some of their things would make excellent Christmas presents!  I know I love to buy homemade items or support folks who are working hard for their families!

In no particular order... :-)
..........................................................................................................................................................
First my friend Jennifer has been making soaps and keychains.  I even seen her post a very beautiful hair stick she had lovingly made.  You can find her items on yardseller here is a link to one of the items...

Next is friend and sister in Christ... Sarah B., she makes some seriously awesome lip balms and hand balms that are natural.  I have used them and I adore them.  Here is a link to her family's page.  You can email her if you want to purchase.

Finally, another sister Sarah E. and her family have a new business helping to sell Shelf Reliance products.  Basically stuff that is very shelf stable for those who are trying to always be prepard for anything.  If you are trying to live offgrid, or if you are just a prepardness person a la Doomsday Preppers style :-)  this stuff is great.  Personally I have not used it, (yet) but given the funds and space I would totally.  I do believe it is important to stock as much food supply as reasonable for your family.

Also another facebook friend, Tonya is a fellow seamstress and sews diapers, covers, wetbags, etc.  She runs her business page off of facebook mostly.  I have seen so many people speak well of her work.

Sister Leslie makes some natural healing salves that many of my other friends seem very excited about.  She also is using facebook to advertise her hard work.

My facebook friend and sis in Christ Heidi has a site...

If you happen to live local to Hebron, OH...my sister in law Dawn makes some amazing cupcakes.  They are not diet friendly, but they are absolutely wonderful.  :-P
..........................................................................................................................................................

And last, but certainly not least...this business is not one that you can mail order from.  It is a friend who does remodeling and they travel all over to do so.  So if you are in the market for something like that, these are good trustworthy folk....

Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute to get a little word out.  I figured it was a good time of the year to do so, plus is just plain love them and I pray they each do well. 

Hopefully you enjoy looking through the links.  If I left any friends out it was unintentional.  I wasn't necessarily trying to cover everyone, I just wanted to do the ones that God laid on my heart. 

Have a super blessed day!!!
