Gina (who, by the way, already guest posted in my Blogging for Dollars Series) from the Shabby Creek Cottage said it best, "You may not get a sale directly from that site every single day – but you are building brand recognition. Pepsi does not advertise so that you stop what you’re doing and go directly to buy a drink – but when you do need to quench your thirst and you are shopping for a drink, Pepsi is going to be recognizable to you. Bottom line, you need to build your brand!" This blog party helps you accomplish build your brand.
Business owners, we wanna see your products. Giveaways are good because they create a buzz about your business. Giveaway hosts, we wanna join! Readers, here's your chance to win fabulous freebies. So come on in and participate in this virtual marketplace.
Our featured biz today is Heavenly Hostess whose creed is "serve with grace." After 27 years in corporate America, Cynthia Wadell followed her dream to establish her own business that she has named Heavenly Hostess. Cynthia, an artist at heart, has given birth to her “Mission as a Business” company.
Cynthia creates very beautiful, glamorous hostess aprons made with satins, embellished lace and organza fabrics, including beading and specialty trims. She is also producing expertly designed cotton aprons for everyday use. Take for example this Retro Chic Inspired Divine Cocktail Apron that is made of glamorous sequined tulle paired with luxurious crepe satin.
Function and Fashion has never been so Fabulous! Heavenly Hostess halter aprons have been lovingly designed to flatter your figure and provide full coverage. All halters are fully reversible, feature side or front pockets and are made of 100% fine quilters cotton. The ones below are called Pop Piná.
I've been to her boutique during our Socal Social event in which she generously gave each participant this useful headband (in different designs and colors). I never would have thought that aprons can be so fashionable and exciting but after seeing and feeling the cocktail aprons that were on display, I became a believer.
NO RULES! Just link up your etsy and/or family-friendly business, browse other businesses before you and after you. It's a great way to network with other business owners. For the giveaways, same thing. Just link up your giveaways and join the other giveaways that catch your eye. If you have a creative post and you want to increase your followers, the appropriate blog party for that is called Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
Link opens every Tuesday, 5:00 pm, PST and ends Saturday, 11:59 pm.
Here's the party button. Displaying the party button on your blog, while optional, is very much appreciated! For one, it will help you to remember to come back here next week. Secondly, we want to spread the word about businesses and giveaways so many can join in. Mentioning it on Twitter and Facebook will also make you totally awesome :)

"Thanks for hosting! Decent linky parties for giveaways and businesses don't seem to exist! So I appreciate this."
PS: I'm not a blog police but in the name of order and organization, you'll be my bloggy BFF if you link up in the appropriate links :D Please note that there are two links. Here's the link for your businesses. There's a second link below specifically for giveaways so how about linking up your giveaways in there? Besides, it's easier to find and join your giveaways if they're in the appropriate link. If you accidentally linked up in the wrong spot, don't fret. Just click the red x before your link to delete it, then link up in the correct spot.
