It is hard to believe it is already August and that I have been editing OMHG for a whole month. Time flies when you are both having fun and working harder then ever have before! I have certainly received and sent more emails in the last month then I have in my entire life. New projects always have a bit of a learning curve and I thank you all for your patience, support and encouraging comments while I get my sea legs.
I wanted to thank the contributors who make this site the amazing resource that it is. Your talents are diverse and inspiring and I simply love reading and editing your articles. July was filled with excellent small business tips, handmade finds and fabulous giveaways. Here is a quick snapshot of the last month:
Sara Tams of sarah + abraham shared her reasons for choosing to find OMHG a new home (and I am so glad she did!)
Catherine Young of bumpkin.etsy.com shared a lovely post filled with adorable handmade tea party finds.
April MacKinnon of Nurtured and Anointment wrote a well-researched article about small business insurance and liability.
