It’s giveaway time! Ends November 20

Lots of giveaways going on over on my Facebook group.  Simply scroll down and comment on any or all of the giveaways to enter to win.  Winners will be chosen on November 20, 2016.  Good luck!

Sorry to those of you not on Facebook.  This is the best platform for me to reach the most people at this time.

Closer to goal and lots of giveaways!

Getting closer to my goal of $1600 for the GoFundMe campaign.  Thank you all so much.  There have been 20 donations so far!  Please consider checking out the campaign.  I’m offering some nice thank you gifts.  This GoFundMe is to help me stock up on craft eyes for the holiday season so that I can fill all orders that come in.

You can read/watch a video on my GoFundMe about why I need to do this campaign.  Basically some of my family members needed extra help from me over the past year, so now I don’t have the personal funds to put into my business.  Plus summer is my slow season, so there wasn’t a lot of extra business income to buy stock.  Kind of a perfect storm of sorts.  Once I get through this month and pay for this stock, things should be back to normal again.  Thank you for all your support.  Sharing this campaign on your social media helps a lot too.

It’s the final day of featured designers in the Big Holiday Giveaway (you can still enter until 11/20/2014).  The final prize, kindly offered by June Gilbank of PlanetJune, is a pattern of the winner’s choice up to a $7 value.  Did you know June created the Amigurumi Discworld from the Terry Pratchett books?  Click on the Discworld below to read all about it.

PlanetJune has more than just adorable (and some lifelike) amigurumi.  She also offers free patterns and crochet tutorials, everything from making a magic ring to invisible decreasing.  The tutorials are available in photos or video too!  My favorite part of her website is the Amigurumi Troubleshooter.  What a great idea!  It can help you figure out why your amigurumi isn’t coming out the way you thought it would.

PlanetJune also takes pattern commissions for new animals to be added to her animal patterns already available.  Make a pledge toward that animal’s pattern, and when it reaches the goal, June will create the pattern!  Ingenious!  Here are some commissions that have already been completed, and you can click on this photo to read more about her commissions:
