Special Shopping Discount Code From Sunshine Farm Girl Co-op!

  I wanted to show you a sneak peak at my new children's product line coming soon to my Jeanpatchbymk shop!  You can use the special coupon code above to pre-order your children's mixed media art journal.  They are absolutely adorable!  Tons of pockets for little hands to reach in and pull out a fun project.  Lots of special surprises on each page.  There is even a chalkboard!  I used vintage Little Golden Books and altered them into these fun activity centers for kids of ages 5 and up!  

Each art journal comes with my own mini handmade book as seen at the bottom left side.  These are all unique and one of a kind.  I also do custom themes and colors.  If you would like a great fun sustainable gift for the little one in your life I'd be happy to make it for you.

Country Gourmet Home Fall/Winter 2012 Catalog

Country Gourmet Home Fall/Winter 2012 Catalog

I recently found a wonderful company that makes natural gourmet mixes without artificial ingredients. Once you buy them and get ready to prepare your families meal you'll want to be sure to buy natural or organic products to add to your meal in order to keep the whole meal preservative and additive free.  Most of the mixes only require water so adding purified water instead of tap water would keep it chemical free.  The same would apply to the other meal mixes or dessert mixes.

 Browse their Fall &Winter 2012 Catalog on my website.  Country Gourmet Home products come in these wonderful selections;  Gourmet Food Mixes, Wax Melts, Lotion Bars & More.  Simply click below to browse our Country Gourmet Home Catalog!

Each day you'll find a new money saving deal.  So bookmark the website below and check back daily to save big.  We also have a monthly special where you'll find meal kits and exclusive products available only through these special meal planning kits.

Getting Started on YouTube

To YouTube and Beyond!!!

Do you YouTube?  If not, it is a great way to promote your business or a great place to show off your DIY projects.  Do you know how to add the little share buttons at the bottom of the posts here on Blogger?  You can make a video about how to do that and it will get tons of views and likes.  From there you can just keep adding more videos and the next thing you know you are popular and go viral.  

I had no idea what I needed to do other than have a web cam or camcorder.  I first googled "How to make a video on YouTube with your laptop".  There was a great YouTube video done that showed exactly how to get started.  It did take a little time for me to figure out how to upload it and find it in my documents file.  But, after that little research I was 'live' on YouTube!

I've made two videos so far.  One is about my website, Sunshine Farm Girl Co-op and our sampler bag.  The second one is about one of my mixed media art journals.  It is so much nicer to see a product on live video than just seeing it in a picture.  YouTube even has their own fix-it features built right into the program.  So, if you are a little shaky there is a fix-it button for that!  If the lighting is not bright enough there is a fix-it button for that.

And, the cool thing is it tells you these issues so you can just hit the button and in a flash your video is now close to perfect.  Of course, being an amateur at this means that your first few videos will be like a "B" movie.  But, that's okay.  It is fun to tweak your location and gain confidence in yourself and then over time your videos will improve and it will show. 

Here are my first two that I made.  Check them out and please 'like' them and subscribe!

If you've already made a DIY video on YouTube please share it here in the comments section.  I'd like to stop by and 'like' it for you.  Stay tuned for more of my fun videos coming to my channel real soon!

A Sampler Bag Full of Handmade Gifts and More!

Today is Blog posting day for the Sunshine Farm Girl Co-op Team!  Happy Thursday!!!

I'm going to share a preview with you today of a new and exciting program we are launching in January 2013 on our website.  You may be familiar with us or you may not be, yet!  I hope after reading this post that you will be curious enough to head on over and check us out.

There are not very many people who can be thought of in today's handmade market that truly are giving a helping hand at no cost to others.  I'm speaking of a great website called Mary Jane's Farm forum.  It is a free forum where you can barter, swap, sell anything.  Plus, you can share your ups and downs of family life and business life and someone will listen and have a word of encouragement or excitement in return.

I've been to several other Mom forums and Mary Jane's Farm is the only one that I have had success on.  Why?  Because, it is a group of like minded women who truly care about other women.  I'm not saying that the other forum's don't have women who truly care about other women.  But, that for me personally I have not found the same warm and caring environment elsewhere.

That is until I started my own website based on that kind of warm and caring attitude.  You can really make friends with the women who are a part of my website, just like I did on Mary Jane's website.   I hold weekly classes in our private Facebook group where we share marketing strategies, promotion ideas and a word of support along the way.

We work together as a team, not against each other behind someone's back.  This is a real gift if you can find it in yourself to give for the good of the group. If this is you, then we'd like to invite you to share your gift with us.

At the present time we are promoting our (click here>>>>>) Eco-Gift Sampler Bag.  It is filled with 14 wonderful handmade gifts and direct sells samples.  All in one cute bundle for just shipping and handling! 

In Our Handmade Gift Sampler bag there are two direct sells products.  One is from Watkins Naturals and the other is from Thirty-One Gifts.  You'll have to buy a bag to find out what the other 12 full size handmade gifts are.  I can promise you that you won't be disappointed.

I promised you a preview of our new program coming in January 2013.  Here is a picture of one of the seller's item.  See if you can figure out what it might be about from the picture.

 I'll give you another clue in November and in December I'll make the big announcement.  And, give you a sneak peak at other seller's products from my website that are participating in this new and exciting adventure with me.

Don't forget to visit our website and pick up you Eco-Gift Sampler Bag today! 

Have a Sunshine Day!
