Frequently Asked Questions

Via Instagram, emails or in the comments section, I get a lot of repeat questions. I thought it might be helpful to create a page for frequently asked questions that my readers may have. Thanks for reading!

Where did you get your glasses?
My glasses that I wear most days are by Warby Parker. They're the "Preston" frames and can be found here

Where did you get ____?
If mentioned on the blog, there is usually a link to the product you're asking about. If there isn't, then there is a great chance that it is an item that has been in my wardrobe for a long time and I couldn't find a similar item to link to. 

What does C/O mean?
If there is a C/O next to an item listed in an outfit post, that means that the item was provided to me "courtesy of" that company. It doesn't, however, always mean that I was given the product with the condition of a product mention. I have a lot of great sponsors who send things as a "thank you" when I've provided them with a lot of sales from advertising or a product mention. I just keep the C/O up there for transparency's sake. 

When I clicked a link, it took me to a website called ShopStyle and then I had to click over to another website to purchase that item. ((or)) When I clicked a link, I saw the word affiliate in the URL. What gives? 
Using affiliate links is a way that I can make a little income on this blog. I am definitely not trying to pull a fast one on you. This keeps me able to provide my readers with fresh content. Running ohsweetjoy.com is a lot of (fun!) work. I never use affiliate links that I wouldn't post otherwise. Basically, if I have an item that I love and want to share it with my readers, if/when you click or purchase from that link that I provide, I might get a couple bucks. It's nothing crazy, but that little bit of cash flow contributes to the DIY's and recipes that I share with you. It's a win-win!

Where can I buy your headbands?
My shop can be found here and you can also find them at RiffRaff in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Who designed your blog?
My original logo was done by Lisa of My Little Buffalo. It was then reworked by Victoria from PistolDaisie and she did most of the cohesive graphics you see on the sidebar. Both gals are great to work with and I highly recommend using them for your graphic design needs! 

How do I get more followers on my blog? How do I get more sales in my handmade shop? 
If you need help and have specific questions about starting your own blog and/or running a handmade business, I would love to answer all your questions but I just don't have time to do that for everyone and it isn't fair to my family when I sit at the computer for hours on end. With that said, if you are part of the Influence Network, you can sign up for consultations where you get  to pick the brains of four gals. Otherwise, I am happy to consult you for an hour via google+ for a small consultation fee. Just email at ohsweetjoyATgmailDOTcom for rates and more info. I'd love to help you get started or refreshed.


Do you/can you make baby headbands?
I don't sell baby headbands because for a few reasons:
1. I love focusing on women's accessories. 
2. The baby market is very saturated with headbands for little ones. I can assure you that you'll be able to find one. 
3. The baby market gets more cut throat by the day ((ironic)). Watching it play out on social media makes me cringe. I just don't want to be a part of it. 
With that said, the headbands that I make will fit babies, but the "bow" portion will be a bit longer than on an adult. 

Where did you get your crib sheets in the instagram photos of Knox?
I made them using fabric from Sarah Watts' Timber & Leaf collection. If there are others, they are actually blankets from Luck & Lollie or made by my aunts.
