Um, where to begin? What a week, am I right? This week flew by for me as I worked around the clock to promote small businesses and bring increased awareness to the devastating effects that COVID-19 will have on many small businesses. See article here. With that being said, I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those who have chosen to support my little business online, it’s truly appreciated and I am forever grateful!
Below I am dishing the scoop on this week’s best sellers at THREADS, favorite recipes, interesting articles and finally a fun surprise sale code!
