Day 2

Good morning everyone! Today we have 3 more vendors - Kristine's Lil Loves, Simply McGhie, and The Fine Lime.

I met Monica through an online Fiberista group, and know that she makes some AMAZING yarn! She is offering a $15 gift certificate for either of her shops, The Fine Lime or Mo and Ozzy.










Here's a little about Monica:





"I'm Monica McDonald and I live in Pleasant Grove, UT with my hubby and two little boys. I taught myself to crochet one Saturday when I was in college, putting off homework. I picked it up again just after my oldest was born . . . crochet is a great stress reliever! I quickly discovered I never followed a pattern . . . I liked to change it as I went. I also uickly stockpiled a lot of yarn! Naturally, my love for yarn eventually led to a phone call and my mom coming to visit, wheel in tow, ready to teach me to spin. I first learned spinning basics as a child, but just picked it up again this summer and am really enjoying the new hobby!"





Be sure to also check out her Facebook fanpage.


Our next giveaway today is from Kristine's Lil Loves. She has made this adorable crochet hat, in any size from newborn to adult. It's perfect for the season!






" I started with sewing blankets as baby shower gifts, my niece who is now 2.5 was my first. You would think my oldest daughter now 4 would have been the start of all my creations, I did 'start' to knit a baby blanket but I prefer projects that don't take days or weeks to complete. So the baby blanket NEVER got finished, well until last christmas when I gave the yarn to my friend who had started crocheting (again) and she decided to make the blanket I never did. I had purchased a couple hats for my daughter christmas outfits from a friend and my sister-in-law kept telling me that she just 'knew' I could do it. Shortly after Christmas I was given a bag of yarn, at the time I was only knitting scarves, and going through the bag there was a crochet hook in a skein of yarn. I sat there holding this hook wondering if I could make a hat, both my grandmothers were very crafty and as a young child they always showed me how to do different things it was all a matter of remembering/re-learning. So I searched the internet and found a basic brimmed hat pattern with video I had the hook and weight of yarn it called for so here goes my first try, and guess what?! I did it!! I was so excited I was literally jumping up and down when my husband got home huge grin on my face saying "Look what I did!" I still get very excited when I make something new or try some new colors together and it comes out AMAZING. I make a little bit of everything, I really want to start sewing clothes for my little girls I have a few patterns but not a whole lot of space (I watch 3 kids plus my own 2 during the week, 6 month to 4 years... therefore crocheting is much easier to get away with). I love to try new things, one of my good friends is a photographer and will sometimes send me a picture of something asking if I can make it, my usual response is "Let's see!" I absolutely LOVE creating things from digital items on the computer to yarn and fabric items. If you have an idea, don't be afraid to ask I will always at least see what I can do."





Also remember to check out Kristine on Facebook!





Last up for today, but certainly not least, is Simply McGhie and her amazing soaps! I met Nichole when i was looking for someone selling local soaps to add felted soaps to my own shoppe. She has a big selection and can do custom orders as well. She is giving away one bar of her Holiday Berry Soap, perfect for the upcoming holidays!






Here's a little bit about Nichole: " I am a stay at home wife and mother of three who started making soap in an effort to reduce the amount of chemicals in my life."










Be sure to become a fan on Facebook, too! She also has some Autumn Harvest soap that she's felted with my Autumn fibers! It looks delicious!!

I would genuinely love each of these prizes! The Fine Lime credit because I'm a yarn junkie, the hat because I need one for me and am too busy making hats for others to make one for myself, and the soap because it's very pretty!
