Hey Guys & Dolls!! I'm so excited to begin this segment of my blog called B. Ayesha's Phenomenal Allies! I got the idea from another phenomenal small business owner Pelhuaz. If you see one of my earlier posts, she featured me on her blog. I was like okay! This is awesome! I'm a big supporter of small business owners. What better way to show my support but by featuring them and helping to get their name out, right? I'm so excited!

My first feature is a long time ally. She's an amazing designer and even better friend. So without further ado, Let me introduce to you Katrina Pierce of Kindred Dreamheart!
