Join in, everyone! I’m hosting my first crochet along and there’s a contest to go along with it! Make a candy-clops (or ten!) using my free candy-clops amigurumi pattern and you could win a pattern of your choice from my shop!
I don’t want this to be a skills contest so 5 winners will be chosen at random to win a free pattern of their choice from my shop! I’m also going to be awarding a free pattern for each of the following:
♥ Most Unique – Who says candy corns have to be white, orange, and yellow?! Go crazy and surprise me with something original!
♥ Best Photo - Put together a little Halloween scene or something! This will be judged based on creativity, not who has the best camera/photography skills.
♥ Biggest Army – It’s hard to make just one! Whoever makes the most wins this one!
Here’s how to enter:
Step 1: Upload a photo of your candy-clops creation anywhere on the internet as long as it’s public (Ravelry, Flickr, your blog, etc).
Step 2: Comment on this post with a link to your photo.
I’ll be accepting entries until midnight on November 2nd, so you have plenty of time! One entry per person please! :)
I’m so excited to share this with you guys! I was nominated into a contest where I could win a pretty new LED hula hoop! After being nominated, I was chosen to move on to the second part of the contest where I had to make a video. I wanted to use this as a chance to share my hooping journey with you! This video is a mash up of new and old footage (newest at the end) so you can see me when I was a total noob and watch my skills progress!
I also wanted to share my story of what hooping has done for me. Hooping has helped me a lot physically. I have scoliosis so I generally have a lot of back pain and it can even get so bad that it’s hard to stand up straight. Hooping has helped to strengthen my back muscles and helped lessen my pain. I’ve also made some really good friends though hooping who I probably never would have met if it weren’t for our mutual love of the hoop! :)
I would really really appreciate it if you would go to YouTube and LIKE my video! Each LIKE counts as a vote that will help me win a LED hoop. My old hoop broke and I can’t afford to replace it so I would be so happy to win one!
If you’re looking to buy a LED hula hoop, be sure to check out www.hoopsofcreation.com. They make beautiful custom hoops and have more LED choices than I’ve ever seen in one place! Seriously, I love to look at their selection and think of all of the pretty color combos I could come up with!
I have a little contest for you guys! I’m going to be releasing my new hat pattern this week (yay, finally!), and it needs a name! I think I’m terrible at naming things! So here’s my offer; suggest as many names for it as you’d like, if I use your name, I’ll give you a free copy of the pattern!
Also, I currently have a deal on Etsy where you can buy all 5 of my hat patterns for $9. Since I’ll be adding another pattern, this deal is gonna have to go. So I just wanted to give everyone a heads up! If you’ve been thinking about buying the 5 for $9 deal, this is your last chance. This deal has been really popular, so I’m going to try to come up with a similar deal. I haven’t decided what it will be yet though.
