An Adorable Giveaway and New Product Sneak Peek

As you are reading this blog post I am probably flying home from Vegas right now and I'm probably ready to be back home to my girls and regular routine. I promise to show you all pics very soon of my trip....because I know I will have tons.

Well today I'm doing a super special giveaway. My friend Jenni, from Hooked on Adorable has offered to sponsor today's blog post and she's giving away a $25 gift certificate to her store. She has some amazingly cute and adorable handmade, crocheted creations for babies, children and even adults. I purchased some matching hats for me and my girls and they are absolutely adorable but my favorites are her little baby creations. They are just too cute.

Now what does this have to do with digital scrapbooking you might ask.....nothing really. Other then the fact that I know a lot of you have little children and could always use something cute for them AND the fact that I appreciate the creativity of others and I love it when women can help and support their families with their creative abilities.

So here's a little bit about Jenni:

My name is Jenni and I am married to an amazing man named Josh.  We have two furbabies named Callie and Cassie.  I have been teaching second grade for four years.  I learned how to crochet last summer and I've been "hooked" ever since. I offer hats for all ages and sizes from newborn to adult. I make basic beanies, newsboys, newsgirls, and animal beanies including monkeys, owls, penguins, raccoons, rabbits, and my newest animal addition a dinosaur complete with spikes and a tail! I also offer cocoons, nests/bowls and hanging stork pouches for those adorable newborn pictures. I recently added an adorable little purse and I'm looking forward to adding additional sizes soon.

Here are some of my faves from her store (the pics are linked):




This is the hat I ordered for me and my girls.
And I'm so sorry to say that I haven't taken any photos with us in the hats. I know, shame on me!


So if you like what you see be sure to "like" her on facebook because you never know when she might be doing a sale or handing out coupons. And check out her Etsy Store here and her blog here to keep up to date with what she is up to. She's always adding new stuff.

Now onto my sneaky peek and my part of the giveaway. I have something unique coming out this weekend....something I've never done before....something that I never thought I would do....something that I had to learn a lot to figure out how to do.....something that I think turned out pretty awesome, thanks to a lot of ladies who helped me. Okay, are you excited or scared?!? Well, if you were in Vegas then you probably already know what this is and you might have snagged it up but if not, then you'll have a chance to grab it this weekend. I'll give you a hint, it includes a PDF and 11 templates....some old and 4 exclusive new ones. So you won't want to miss out on this sweet deal. You have a chance to win this and the Hooked on Adorable Hat just by leaving a comment here and letting both Jenni and I know if you've ever bought anything on Etsy and maybe telling us a little bit about it. We'll be announcing the winner in Thursday mornings blog post. Can't wait to hear from you all.

LOVE the hats you and the girls have - this would be fun to win. :) I'm a little addicted to Etsy. I have several favorite sellers and have purchased jewelry from them. I have a cute charm bracelet with Dr. Seuss books on it (have you seen it?), Shel Silverstein earrings, chocolate covered strawberry earrings and a special pendant I bought for E for her birthday in July. :)

I LOVE ETSY! I've bought many things for my daughter on Etsy and have had great luck! I buy her a shirt for every holiday and a bow as well. I've purchased baby gifts on Etsy and bow holders. I love all the unique items you can get at a reasonable price.

Please delete the comment from Norman again. So sorry. I'll try to watch that in the future. It was me. :)

Never bought anything on Etsy. Templates look wonderful ... and so do the hats...

Oh indeed I have bought many, many, many items on the Etsy site! Mostly scrapbooking items, such as hand made journaling tags, but I have also purchased a wallet, and a few prints! I am soooo addicted to Etsy and I am addicted to your templates too! :)

I am confused because I was at the convention, but I am sooooo not sure what you're talking about regarding your new release, so I must have missed out on SOMETHING good! hehe

Thanks, Girl!

Candi
