6) Hello Sometimes Sweet readers! Here's the part where we tell you about us...we're the super fantastically awesome (soon to be married!) owners and runners of Funk Off! A supreme handmade Vegan bath and body product business based out of Northern California...to keep you fresh, not funky!
One day we were sitting around thinking of all the things we could do so we didn't have to work for "the man"...after a serious brainstorm we needed a shower (you know the funk that can come with some hard thinking, its like a slight burning smell)...we were out of soap and frustrated, "how are we gonna get the funk off now?"...and thus "Funk Off!" was born (I mean, not right then and there...there's a gestation period you know...but shortly after). We're fans of all things natural and good for us and the environment...so we wanted to make sure that whatever product we were offering the world had our sincere stamp of approval...and it does! Double stamped even! We took our sniffers for a magic carpet ride of scent sensations and came up with 8 perfect smells that we know you'll love! Then we wanted a little more softness for our sensitive skin and we came up with our Later, Gator! lotions...and when we wanted to get the funk out and the fresh on to every single thing we own (you name it: skin, clothes, furniture, dogs, car, backpack, shoes, carpet...) we popped out a line of Keep It Fresh! sprays!! after that (and after paying $3 for a crappy tube of blistex in a lip balm emergency!) we had thought bubbles of a smooth (not at all gritty), all natural Vegan lip balm that we could make in all the flavors of our wildest dreams...and BAM! Kiss This! Vegan lip balm...in all kinds of flavahs! and just in time for the holidays we've released 2 new scents and two new products! now all up in the mix are Peace, Love, and Soap Suds! shower gels (available in all 10 amazing smells!) and Bust A Move! travel kits!! we're always thinkin up new ideas and products to pull out of our magic hat...so keep checkin in on us cause we always keep it fresh!
Giveaway item: We're giving away one Peace, Love, and Soap Suds! shower gel and one Lator, Gator! lotion in scents of your choice...and one Kiss This! Lip Balm in any flavor you want!
7) Hey there, my name is Jess and I'm a boho momma who is committed to not giving up my style from bump to baby and beyond. On my blog, BohoBabyBump.com I scribble about the crazy ongoing adventures that befall a free spirited newlywed, first time pregger, and brand new mommahood. I love to create fashion that has an earthy-chic flair with a kiss of vintage sweetness.
Giveaway item: I'm so excited to sponsor a set of my "lock and key earbobs" and antique "key on a string" necklace. They are always a cherry on top for my favorite duds! I've had a ton of requests for these creations so, here ya go! Enjoy lovelies!
8) That Vintage cracked its own egg in the warm month of February 2008 and fell into the hands of Sophie Hill, a Launceston based bird-obsessive artist and lover of all things handmade. That Vintage pieces are created using the beautiful Tasmanian Myrtle timber that we are lucky enough to have on offer in our own backyard. It began with a Tasmanian Blue Wren and a Common Sparrow, dancing together in the warm sunlight of an early Summer morning – from this friendship, the illustrations were hatched and then turned into wearable pieces of artwork – a tribute to the diversity of friendship. In Sophie’s nest of inspiration you will find cups of tea, synth folk music on repeat, a menagerie made of porcelain and her fair share of fabric swatches. The view from Sophie’s nest is a Native Australian garden, growing with the hopes that the Bottle Brush and Kangaroo Paw will evoke new feathery friendships. That Vintage designs are made with love and really, that is all that’s needed.
Giveaway item: That Vintage Deer Darling Friend Ring: To all those "deer"... "deer" and darling and sweet! This deer darling friend design is beautifully engraved onto Tasmanian Myrtle wood, complete with adjustable ring. Wooden Disc - 2.2cm diameter. Strongly adhered to a fully adjustable ring base - can be tightened/loosened freely!
9) We are Vicki & John, A husband & wife badge making business based on the Cornish coast in the UK. We started Kool Badges in july of 2006 and hand make button badges for our customers. When we aren't badging we can be found listening to live music, sampling teas & coffees from around the world, watching obscure foreign movies & eating good food.

11) Hi Sometimes Sweet readers! I'm Onjoli, one part of Rainy Day Story (the other part is my fiance Jesse). We're from lovely Arizona, despite our hot summers it really is a great place to live. We've been running our own business for 4 years now and it is my full time job. I'm a mom to a smarty pants little boy, I run a few Etsy shops (handmade and vintage) and a small shop-in-shop in Downtown Glendale.
A little about myself: I like chocolate and coffee too much, should probably go to the gym more then I ever do and I can be kinda shy and awkward in person (not the cool kind the uncomfortable kind). I start way to many projects (luckily I finish most) and I make goals to last me years and years:)
