The end of the year is drawing near..

...and I just want to say "thank you"!  My journey with this hobby-turned-business of mine began in early September and has far exceeded any expectations I had.  I've had customers from each corner of the United States and places inbetween. 

Today marks the first day of my six day "vacation" and I'm so happy to put the crochet hooks and yarn aside to spend this very special holiday with my family.  I'll be back to work the day after Christmas, and will be taking another three day break for New Year's since we will be on an actual vacation for a few days.

I was accepted to participate as a vendor for the Sock Monkey Madness Festival held here in Rockford, IL in early March, and I'm hoping to get through as many customer orders as I can so I can focus some attention on building up stock (something I currently have NONE of).  I'm very excited to be included in something so loved!

January is a new beginning so be on the lookout for new giveaways (2 are in the works)!

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas holiday with family and friends!

I'm a gifter by nature; I love to see people enjoying something I've given them, especially if it's handmade!  This giveaway was so much fun for me!  I enjoyed reading your responses and hope that you will all keep coming back! 

A few people had forgotten to list their email address and went on to post a second time, which was fine!  So out of 69 comments, there were truly only 66.  I went to to enter in the information and #34  was chosen!!  That's you BREANNA MILLER!  Congratulations!!  I will contact you by email for your mailing address and will get it out the door in the next couple days. 

There's still hope for the rest of you!  I have more giveaways lined up for January that you won't want to miss!  The details for these giveaways will be posted on or around January 2nd. 

Thank you all for becoming followers of my blog.  I truly do appreciate it!!
