Thousand Fan Giveaway!

I would be NOTHING without all of my loving fans!  Thank you all so much for getting me over the "thousand" mark!  To thank you, I'd like to give away an owl hat, made to the winner's specifications.  Here's what I'd like you to do to be eligible to win:

1. Share my link someplace!  Share it on Facebook, through e-mail, on your blog, Twitter, MySpace, etc.  You don't have to post it on each one of those but I'd love it if you shared on at least one.  This will help my fan base grow and will notify your friends of their chance to win something FREE!
2. Post a comment below with your name and email so I can get ahold of you if you win!

It's that simple!  Winner will be drawn March 30, 2011 at 1:00 pm (cst).  I trust that you will all play fair and not sneek by without sharing my link.  Afterall, it's really not asking much for something I work hard on.  Have fun!!

Spring is near!!

I had so much fun creating this new bunny hat for Easter!  This particular hat is going to a photographer for use as a prop in her studio, and will fit a 3 month old.  What do you think?!

I began taking custom orders again two nights ago and I'm already booked out 2 1/2 weeks, awesome!!  I may need a whole extra room in the house just for yarn if I keep this up!

Day 1
 Spending time working this weekend at the 7th Annual Sock Monkey Madness Festival was such a blessing!!  I never knew just how beloved the Sock Monkey really was!  Mostly everyone had their own unique monkey doll with them and a few stopped by to share their stories with me.  I also met some great vendors from near and far (North Carolina, Wisconsin, and even California!).  I made a total of 33 hats for the show...and sold 25 of them, while also taking 6 orders! Needless to say, my table was WIPED OUT!  I was amazingly blessed with such a great outcome!

Austin's sign
On the sceond day of the festival, I hired my son, Austin, to help me out.  It was easier to have him there to watch over the table for those times when I just couldn't hold it anymore, LOL!!  There was a point in time when I only had baby hats left for sale, so he made me a paper sign to set next to them to let everyone know  :) 

New additions
Of course, we couldn't leave the festival empty handed!  Austin found these adorable tiny monkeys for $5 each.  He chose one for his brother and sister, as well as himself.  He's already started working on making a superhero cape for his!

The experience I had here this weekend was fantastic and I'll be counting down the days until next year's show!!  Thanks to God for getting me through the preparation and the show with great success, and thanks to a few of my fans for making it out to see me!!  It means so much to me!

Keep on the look-out!

I'm just about ONE week from reopening for orders!  My Sock Monkey Madness Festival is this weekend and it all depends on how many custom orders I get while I'm there!  I can't wait to post some photos for you all to see.  I'll announce my reopening on my Facebook page real soon!  Thanks for being patient!
