KnitStorm Giveaway

Coffee. tea. hot chocolate. Tis' the season for warm bevvies!! And this mama is living off the java these days (thanks to a little gal waking me up by 5:30am most mornings....aarghh!!).

Today's feature and giveaway is from Etsy shop, KnitStorm. I came across this shop before Christmas; searching out some sweet gifts for my coffee (and tea) loving friends! I instantly fell in awe with the knit cozies! Beautifully made with a touch of whimsy on each one....have a peek at some of Kate's designs. You're going to love them (grin)!
Aren't they just delicious?!! You can choose from one of Kate's designs or personalize your own cozy to match a certain someone's taste & personality (heehee- could be interesting!!).

Here's a little bit more about Kate....
"All works in my shop are my original designs, made from patterns that I myself developed. I make each item by hand with the same love and care I'd devote to a gift I was making for a loved one. Handmade is, after all, all about the love!"

*All photos courtesy of KnitStorm

So many great options to choose from! And lucky us...Kate has offered one of her cozies for someone to WIN!! See the second photo above of the tea cozy in teal?! yup, that's the one!! Said by Kate- "This hand crocheted mug cozy is fabulous for insulating and decorating your cup of warm deliciousness." Love that.

Switching it up!

Change is a good thing right??!! Well I like (need) change every once in awhile....I think I get bored (grin)!

So I started with my logo. It's simple. clean. with a touch of modern. and a bit of shabby. I am really happy with it and hope to make up some new stickers and business cards...soon!!

The next thing that is (in the process of) changing is my shop! I have moved over to Big Cartel! This will be a gradual process, so please bare with me. Purchasing will still be completed via PayPal (you are directed there at checkout).

My newest & latest Shabby Lane items will be available here! The rest will be available here (many of these original items have been discontinued, so scoop them up before they're gone for good!!).

Stay tuned over the next little while, as I will be releasing many new items!! I am super-excited to share them with you and hope you like (love)!!!

p.s. here's my new addy:

Sweet Life by design Giveaway

In case you haven't heard.......I'm the proud new mama of an iPhone!!! Teehee. But seriously, I'm in awe! Before my iPhone I had a basic flip phone with limited capabilities (probably because I was too cheap to add any extra features!). But I am having so much fun with my new little friend- discovering new apps, checking out my facebook & twitter accounts, texting the hubby at work (grin), and more!

So of course I had to search "iPhone" via Etsy!! And that's what led me to Sweet Life by design. Alisa has some wonderful gadget cases; the perfect accesory to hold your iPhone, iPod, cell, small digital camera, or mP3 player! Fully padded to protect our little gadget friends. Choose from a wide selection of trendy, playful designs. And if you have a special request, don't be shy! Alisa is open to custom orders and will do her best to help you out.

A bit more about this talented lady....
"I love to create things that are beautiful and useful for friends, family and YOU!! All items are my own design and I pay great attention to design and detail so your items will not only be beautiful, but durable."

The very sweet Alisa has offered to give away one of her gadget cases (thank you)!! Winner will receive the case of their choice (yay)!!

Here are some photos of my own personal fave-brown damask. Please note the green Kinda reminds you of our camera strap giveaway doesn't it?! I guess I like what I like (wink)!!
