I have such exciting news to share with you today! I have officially listed items and opened my new Etsy shop! That's right, I have made the jump from simple buyer to creative seller. :) As funny as it sounds, it was a difficult decision to make. I've had a lot of fun dying yarn and getting reacquainted with my lovely sewing machine. For me, the best part about dying the yarn is seeing the final results. And most times, I feel they are too pretty to use!! This creates a dilemma....do I use the yarn I've dyed, instead of just looking at it? Do I stop dying yarn until I can find a project worthy of the yarn? Do I continue dying and sell what I've created?
So the next time you're on Etsy, consider taking a gander at my shop chase.art. (I came very close to naming my shop Cheese. Long story.) Profile name: raelynne01.
So what you're really waiting to hear about, though, is what is this giveaway she mentioned? It's not fair to keep someone waiting!
For my giveaway, I am offering one lucky winner their very own Interchangeable Needle KnitBook! All I ask is that you do a few things for me.
1. Visit my Etsy shop, then come back and tell me what your favorite item in my shop is, or what else you'd like to see more of. You have until 11:59pm Central Standard Time on July 25th to enter.
2. Leave something to identify yourself, like your Ravelry username, email address, blog address, something so I can get in contact with you. After I pick a winner and contact them, they will have 1 week to respond with shipping information. If I do not hear from the winner within that timeframe, I will pick a new winner. (Sorry for the short time to respond, but I go back to school in August and want all my ducks in a row before then!)
3. You can earn multiple entries by doing any of the following: become a follower of my blog, blog about my giveaway on your own blog (Facebook is okay too), spread the news by telling another person about the giveaway. Please be sure to leave a separate comment for each method.
(If you become or are a follower, blog about the giveaway, and tell someone else about the giveaway, that earns you an extra 3 entries!) And if possible, please provide the link! :)
I will be including some goodies with the KnitBook, although I haven't decided what they're going to be. So that will just have to be a surprise. Good luck to everyone and happy knitting! (p.s. all needles and notions you see are for display purposes only!)
