Summer Time!

We are moving right along with 2015! I can't believe this year is half over already! As always, I've been quite busy both in and out of the yarn room. We are still working on the new homestead getting the yard together and exploring our surrounding neighborhoods. I've started my second season at the Barn-N-Bunk and am very happy about that! I've also reserved my spot for a local craft show this Fall and am busy getting items made for that as well as lots of baby gifts this year.

To my surprise, and delight, one of my most popular items this year has been this adorable elf! I've made several of these already. A couple for gifts, a few for the craft show and Barn-N-Bunk, and several for those awesome folks placing orders early and avoiding the holdiay rush. :) Thank you all! I will be taking more orders for the Christmas Shelf Elf later this Fall.

If you would like to make one of these cuties for yourself, the Christmas Shelf Elf pattern by Heather Gibbs is available here

Ahhhh Spring

Well we have weathered the first, not too bad, winter in our new home. We enjoyed lots of family fun during the holidays and have started the first of, hopefully, many memories here. 

While I generally enjoy winter, I am glad to see the leaves and green grass. Most which seemed to have appeared while we were away on vacation last week! Hubby and I had a great time with some friends from Memphis. We took a cruise to Mexico and spent some time in New Orleans. F-U-N!!!  During our drive I had the chance to work on some super cute Slippah Luggage Tags .. FREE PATERN!  I gave my friend a set and kept one for myself. I also worked up a few to take to the pics yet!

I'm now ready to turn my attention to some yard work and summer crochet. Things are already going well at the Barn-N-Bunk Farm Market and I have a few orders waiting for the hook. I have several new items to post to Etsy. I need to get some pictures taken and get this done! So much to do so little time.

It is so hard to believe Creative Kitty Crochet has been around for four years this month! I am so appreciative of all the support from my family and Facebook friends. With the opportunity to sell my items locally at the Barn-N-Bunk I've also met so many nice people here in our new home town. I am feeling very blessed.

So, with that being said, I want to show my appreciation for your continued support of my small business. My offerings aren't huge but they are given from the heart and I hope that you will continue to follow my small little shop in 2015 and see where we go from here. I will be having four drawings for the four years Creative Kitty Crochet has been around. If my Facebook page reaches 4000 likes in March I will have four more drawings!

For my crocheting friends I am offering a chance to win a crochet pattern book titled Simple & Fun Footwear for the Family by Leisure Arts. I know most of you are pattern hoarders like I am! lol  To enter simply leave a comment on this post that you would like a chance to win the pattern book. I will draw a winner on March 31st. Winner will be posted on the blog.

For my friends that don't crochet I will be giving away one of the Easter jar cozies (jar not included) Your choice of the bunny, duck, or lamb. These make great cup cozies too :) For a chance to win one of these simply leave a comment on this post stating which one you would like. Drawing will be held March 31st. Winner will be posted on the blog.    

I've saved the best for last...because without those of you who purchase from Creative Kitty Crochet I would not still be here. I will have a drawing on March 31st from all the custom orders I have had so far this year. The more orders you have placed, the more chances you have to win! These will be for two separate gift certificates for (four years so..) 40% off your next order. I truly appreciate your support! Winner will be posted here on the blog.

Thank you all again for sharing this adventure with me. I'm looking forward to many more years of creating cherished keepsakes and lots of fun hats!
