A little update from this week

It’s been such a busy few weeks.  I’m reorganizing my business model to create more free time so I’m not working 10 hours a day.  Last week I actually took almost a whole day off.  It was wonderful.

Here are a few of the orders that shipped this week.  I’m try to take more photos to share with you.  Follow me on Instagram to see lots more.

Good luck!

Want to choose your own Suncatcher Craft Eyes?  Click here to shop now!

What’s an “oops” giveaway?  It’s when I paint the wrong size or wrong color, etc.  When I goof, that’s when I’ll hold a giveaway to give them away.  These eyes are not damaged or returns.  Best of all, I paint a lot of eyes so there are usually “oopsies” every week.  Stay tuned and follow my blog so you don’t miss any of these giveaways!

 

Can I pick your brain?

I’m getting together with some of your favorite amigurumi crochet designers to bring you an awesome giveaway for the holidays.  So far the designers joining us include (in no particular order) Little Owls Hut, FreshStitches, Little Yarn Friends, AmigurumiPatterns.net, Planet June, One and Two Company, Forever Stitchin, and Crochet Ole’.  Are you excited yet?  I sure am!

I could really use your help to make this an amazing giveaway.  Where would be the best place to host this giveaway?  Facebook is good for my small giveaways; but for a giveaway this size, I’d like to open it up to everyone whether they’re on Facebook or not.  I’ve tried holding it with Google Docs on my blog, but it was rather restricting (but it was my first time using Google Docs, and I was learning as I went).  Have you seen a great giveaway layout lately or do you have some ideas that I could try or do you know of a good giveaway-hosting venue?  Please comment down below and let me know.

You guys have always give me terrific ideas, and with your help I’m sure this will be one Big Holiday Giveaway!!!  Thank you for your ideas!
