Member Blog of the Week: Lizzie B Cre8ive

Apr 29, 2009

Posted by Maureen Petron - Just because the NASE is relatively new to blogging doesn't mean that our members are! That's why we're starting a Member Blog of the Week series here on NASE on Micro-Business.

We want to learn about your business and how you're using your blog to promote your business. Is your blog linking to other social media like Twitter or Facebook? Let us know!  Put a link to your blog with your name in the comments of this post if you want to be considered as a featured Member Blog of the Week!

We start this week with a member I am fortunate enough to have met personally. The blog (and business), Lizzie B Cre8ive is actually run by two women -- sisters in law -- but I've only met one. I'd like to have said there, "I've only met Elizabeth," but that might not have helped you much. Lizzie B Cre8ive is run by Elizabeth Hawkins and... Elizabeth Hawkins. Liz and Beth -- sisters in law! lizziebcre8ive1

That quirky story fits well with their business, which is whimsical quilting designs. They both work out of a home studio, Beth in Arizona and Liz in Pennsylvania. Beth was actually an NASE Business Development Grant recipient a few years ago, and she attended one of our TaxTalk seminars when we visited Phoenix.

Their blog can be found here. Lots of color, patterns, and where they find their inspiration for quilt designs.

Most recently, many of their posts are dedicated to their recently published book, Whimsyland.


Check out fellow NASE Members Beth and Liz! And tell us about your blog in the comments!
