I'm A Guest Blogger!

The very lovely, Kris, of My Best Friend's Hair, recently asked me to guest post on her blog!  I was more than willing to help because Kris runs an amazing resource for all of us out there searching for great hair!  Here's a little about what she does:

You wouldn't trust your hair to anyone would you? At least not without a positive recommendation from someone who has had their hair done by that stylist. We realize your relationship with your stylist is very important. Mybestfriendshair.com was created to be a referral-based web community where people looking for a new stylist can search for reviews of several stylists in their area based on their hair needs in the privacy of their own home. Whether you are new to town or just "need a change", mybestfriendshair.com is there to provide you with all the information you need to find the best stylist for you. 

We are Your Girlfriend's Guide to a Great Stylist!

So...because I love all of you so much, find a special coupon code at http://mybestfriendshair.com !! You won't want to miss it!

Zionsville Brick Street Market....MadrinDesigns' Last Event in Indiana!!

The time has finally come...our last event of 2011 in Indiana! The big move to California is only 2.5 weeks away and the countdown has begun!

This Saturday, May 14, 2011, is the famous Zionsville Brick Street Market (formerly Country Market) on the cobblestone streets of downtown Zionsville. This will be my 3rd year at this event and I couldn't be more excited that I'm finishing my time here with this one.

No matter who's on your shopping list, you will find something unique and special at the Brick Street Market. I have several friends doing the event again this year including: Two Seaside Babes and Time & Again Pillowcase Dresses and Aprons to name a couple. Make sure to visit these two booths for some cutie cute stuff for your little ones!

The Market starts at 10 am on Saturday and is open until 5 pm. Please come, rain or shine! You can stay dry b/c we're all under giant white tents (just wear the raincoat to get to and from your car). And make sure to snap up some fabulous and fun jewelry or hair accessories from your fave vendor, MadrinDesigns!!

Continue to follow our journey to California here on the blog and on FB! Our products will still be available on Etsy 24/7!

p.s. - Thanks to all of our customers who have been so supportive the last 3 years! I couldn't have done it without you! xoxoxoxxoxo
