This week our fabulous sponsor is Mary Ellen from Dearie Dolls

Dearie Dolls 
Mary Ellen's Dearie Digis are inspired by the wooden dolls she and her husband Kip made together for 25 years. She likes to tell a little story with each illustration. Some of her favorite subjects are snowmen and children.
Most of Mary Ellen's images are free to use.  They are so delightful and you could spend hours looking through the images that she has on her blog.  She has colored and uncolored images to choose from.
Mary Ellen also has a Etsy shop- Dearie Dolls by me where she has some very cute images for sale, so be sure to stop and take a peek. 
Now let me show you some wonderful inspiration, brought to you by the fabulous SSW2 Design Team:

  11. But the promenade is not merely a display case for the political adidas store legacy of apartheid. It can also be viewed as a place which proves that at least some components of South adidas factory outlet Africa’s national experiment in diversity and multiculturalism are working. It exemplifies not only what is fixed about the nation’s past, adidas originals online but what is dynamic and progressive about its present.
