Sponsor Spotlight - Jillibean Soup


"Greetings from Soup Country! Jillibean Soup started as a concept in the fall of 2007 and launched their first products in the fall of 2008. With an interest in the environment, all of our 12x12 patterned paper designs are printed on recycled paper. Our kraft paper is custom manufactured and is printed on 100% recycled stock. All of our products are printed using soy based inks. We pride ourselves in using the best "ingredients" and manufacturing great quality products!

So why "Jillibean Soup"? Jillibean was a nickname given to Jill by a childhood neighbor. "Soup" just sounded good with Jillibean. It has allowed us to do some creative naming of products, packaging and original marketing.

For more information about Jillibean Soup and our products, check us out at www.jillibean-soup.com. Make sure to stop by the Bean Talk blog and say "hello"!

For this week's giveaway, we're giving away 3 sets of our New Clear Stamps and some yummy Soup Staples!
