Hi. It’s Monday, and it’s the debut of the newest blog hop from the Island Batik Gang! This time, we have a common theme of the beach, and we’ve been given carte blanche to use the theme as we see fit. You’ll also see other aspects to the hop – including some of our favorite summertime recipes.
We were grouped together by fabric collection, so on any given day, you may find two blogs hopping, each using the collection in their own creative projects. If you’re a shop owner, and you carry Island Batik in your shop, these blog hops offer you the opportunity to link to our blogs of your site, highlight something that you like – and create instant content for your customers! (If you’re not currently carrying the line in your shop, there’s a sales link off the sight to correct that!).
I’ve been working on something very special for you for my portion of the hop, and I’m loving what’s on my design wall right now. I can’t wait to share it with you.
The blog hop kicked off today with Marlene Oddie’s table runner (and new pattern) over at Kissed Quilts…This looks like a quick and easy project for you, and something that would make a great gift. You can start the blog hop there, and then come back often for the latest ideas on the theme.
