Ok, I'm gonna start this party out right! =)

My name is Stacy Shaw, and I'm a labor and birth doula. I own Birth Days Doula Services, which can be found at www.limadoula.com, or on Facebook (search for our page and become a fan - we love our fans!) I don't really have a preference regarding the prizes, I'm just showing my support for Dawn and her fabulous business! =) I love all of Market Mommy's tips - they are most useful if you thinking about starting a new business or really getting into marketing your established one!

Deb Howard said...

Oooh, what a fun way to start the day!

My name is Deb Howard Greenleaf and I provide bookkeeping and accounting services to WAHMs, coaches and other solo-professionals who want to focus on growing their business instead of doing the books. My blog is at http://greenleafaccounting.com/blog and you can follow my tweets at twitter.com/dhgreenleaf.

All the prizes are great ... it's hard to choose! If I had to pick, my top five would be the Market Mommy gift certificate, the Scrappy Notes notepad, the Cupcake Swirl apron, the Pigtail Pals t-shirt, and the trick-or-treat bag from PJ Quilts.

Thanks for the party!!
