Sweet Sponsor Sundays – Inaugural Sunday!

Friends, welcome to the Inaugural post of Sweet Sponsor Sundays!

If I had to pinpoint the most important thing I’ve learned in my ten years as a marketing professional, it would have to be the power of word of mouth advertising.  It is so much more valuable than paid advertising, and infinitely more meaningful.

I believe in supporting fellow business owners who are doing great things.  I believe in the power of reciprocal advertising and all of its benefits.  Small businesses are the heartbeat of America.  I have known many small business owners during my life, and they are by far some of the most down-to-earth and hardest working individuals I have ever known.

Beginning today, Sunday, June 2nd, Sweet Melissa’s will begin hosting Sweet Sponsor Sundays!  We will be showcasing organizations that we believe in and who have taken the time to support us, and we ask that our sweet friends show our wonderful sponsors some love!

On this, our Inaugural Sweet Sponsor Sunday, I have the privilege of showcasing two fantastic organizations owned by former colleagues of mine, who also happen to be women and amazing mommies!

The Adventures of J-Man and MillerBug


Jeannette Fender, owner of The Adventures of J-Man and MillerBug, is tenacious, savvy, and an amazing blogger!  I have had the pleasure of watching Jeannette’s blog grow from her very first post, and her journey has been an incredible one to watch. Jeannette has quickly become one of the most sought-after bloggers for her product reviews, giveaways, and sponsorship opportunities.  Jeannette has worked with everyone from small business owners like me all the way to big names like VTech, Cascade, Maytag, Dunkin’ Donuts, and the list goes on.  Not only does Jeannette provide opportunities to grow brands and sponsor products and business, but she also writes entertaining and heartfelt stories about her adventures with her family.  Jeannette is a mom just like me, and shares her experiences with the world, no matter if they are good or not-so-good.  She is down-to-earth and real, yet smart and savvy all at the same time!  She is an excellent writer, and I can guarantee you will be entertained by her blog.  Friends, please show Jeannette some love at The Adventures of J-Man and MillerBug.  Please take a moment to show her some love on Facebook too, where you can stay up to date with her latest reviews, giveaways, and adventures with her sweet J-Man and MillerBug!

Sweet Jellybean Bowtique

SJB Love

Kara Peeks, owner of Sweet Jellybean Bowtique, is one of the most fashion-forward women I’ve had the opportunity to know.  Kara and I had the pleasure of working together previously, and Kara taught me what couture really means 🙂  She is smart and witty, and has an eye for style!  Kara has several great loves in her life, but luckily for us, she has combined two of her greatest loves, her children and fashion, and has created her own clothing line for our sweet little ones!  Kara takes pride in her work and hand makes each item with quality.  Not only does she offer many great items that she has created herself, but she also custom makes outfits and accessories for your little ones based on your specifications.  Kara’s sweet clothing line offers outfits and accessories for little guys and gals.  She hand makes onesies, dresses, scrappy skirts, her very popular tutus, necklaces, bracelets, hair candy, and shoes for your little ladies.  And for your little fellas, you have got to check out her extremely cute necktie and suspender onesies.  I’m a mommy of three boys, so you know I’m all over the necktie onesies!  Her attention to detail is amazing, but her passion is what shines through the most!  She loves what she does, and it shows in her work!  Please show Kara some love and visit Sweet Jellybean Bowtique today!
