What the WHAT...?

This week's contest is to explain what the heck is going on in this picture. It has nothing to do with my shop, but I knew you could have a LOT of fun with this one! Write a caption, thought bubble or story to try and explain what the heck is going on here. Leave the comment on my Facebook page and the comment with the most "likes" by Friday wins a $15 gift cert to Jamba Juice.

Of all the what-not-to-crochet pictures, this one is my favorite. The guy is just so happy to be covered in this weird crochet suit, triumphant almost, haha!



And the winner is...


Thank you to everyone who entered my contest and a huge congratulations to Charlene! I'll have another contest next week, this time for a $15 gift cert to JAMBA JUICE!! Stay tuned on Monday for more details!!


I SPY...

Hello kids! Today we're going to play I SPY!! Remember those long family car trips with you and your brother in the back seat? The air conditioner didn't work and your dad didn't want the windows rolled down so you were melting. Your brother was starting to play the I'm-not-touching-you game and just as you're about to draw back in retaliation, your mom suggests you play a game. "I spy something....". Well, this is sort of like that, only without the sweat and sibling war.

Check out the picture. It's a REALLY close up view of one of my hats. Which one? 

  • Use my Etsy shop as a cheat sheet and choose which hat you think it is.
  • Leave a comment after this blog post saying "I spy something.... [name of hat]".
  • The winner will be picked out of the correct entries using Random.org
  • You may have THREE guesses, but only one correct answer per person will count as an entry.
  • Contest closes Thursday (6/24) at midnight (mountain time) so get your entries in early!
  • If you want an extra entry, Tweet or post on Facebook about my contest and leave a comment with the link to your tweet or post.
  • The winner gets a $15 gift card to Starbucks!!
Got questions?

Your PRIZE!! (The receipt is to show you that the card is activated.  I blurred out the other 2 gift cards I got to keep the surprise!




With all the new things I have planned for my shop, I thought it'd be cool to re-vamp how I package my hats.. So I thought to myself (actually, I was probably talking out loud) "What can I put in the package that will get my customer's attention, look rad, and promote my shop all at once?"


I happen to be the co-founder of the coolest (that's right, it's true) team on Etsy called Etsy Shredwear.One of my fellow shreddies, Aimee from ABabneauArt, is a graphic designer, along with her other talents. So I asked her to design some stickers for me. She was AWESOME!! Her designs were prefect for my shop! So, I printed them up and they came in the mail today!!!

I can't wait until I sell a hat so I can send off the first sticker!
