Creative Dragonfly Etsy Shop Giveaway

With the holidays approaching I thought a Gift Certificate giveaway for my Etsy Shop was appropriate. In order to enter all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog as to which item in my shop you like the best or what you'd like to see in my shop and that will gain you one entry into the giveaway. If you're not already a Fan of my Creative Dragonfly Fan Page if you become a Fan you'll gain an entry too. If you leave a comment on my Fan Page you'll get another entry and one more way to get another entry is to become a follower of my blog. My Etsy Shop and Blog are both accessible from my Fan Page by clicking on the "My Etsy" tab at the top of the page.

I will draw the winner on Saturday, November 28, 2009. Once the winner is drawn it will be posted on my Fan Page, my Blog and my Etsy Shop.

The Gift Certificate will be valued at $20.00 which can be used towards anything in my shop.

Little Boys and Foam Heads...........

I sometimes feel as though I only make hats for little girls so I've been trying to make more hats for little boys lately. This steel blue and white hat could probably be worn by a little girl or little boy but in my mind it's for a little boy.

Now on to the foam head issue. I purchased a couple foam heads to use as models for my hats rather then using a styrofoam ball to model my hats. I'm just not sure about these heads though. They certainly showcase the hat better but I'd much rather have a real model. Olivia just isn't in to wearing hats or modeling them so I suppose I'm stuck with a foam head.

Subdued Colors

I absolutely adore bright, vibrant colors but I realize not everyone loves those same colors. I've been trying my best to use more subdued colors for my creations lately. Here's one of my newest creations. This beautiful Earflap Hat is brown, light yellow and Robin's egg blue. A little boy or girl would look adorable in this cute little hat.

I'm a strong believer in fate and today proved that I'm right to believe in fate. I left the house early today all by myself to mail an order at the post office and head off to a store in Jacksonville to purchase yarn for more creations. Once I got to the store I discovered it was CLOSED. It was just open a couple weeks ago!!! I thought I was losing my mind so I called my husband, he checked online and nope, that store is no longer listed. What's funny is I checked the site online a few days ago and they listed that store on their website. Off I went to another store that I haven't been to in a few months and low and behold they had exactly what I was looking for plus it was on sale! Now, that's fate.........I had my heart set on the first store and that was a bust but the store I hadn't thought of for yarn had it. Needless to say my morning turned out just perfect!

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in a short week and a half and right behind Thanksgiving is Christmas. Where did the year go? I think this hat would make a great winter hat for a little girl or a wonderful addition to her Christmas Day wardrobe.

My Monday and My Model

Olivia and I started our day out with a brisk walk and I can't emphasize brisk enough. Neither one of us had a jacket on, the wind was blowing and it was a cold N.E. Florida morning. We shortened our walk and skipped the playground; tomorrow we'll wear jackets.

Olivia decided to "model" some socks on her arms. She loves socks for some reason. I think her love of socks may be genetic, her mother seems to love them too. She's a wonderful sock model isn't she? I figured if she's going to model socks maybe she could model a couple of my hats. Hat modeling didn't go as well as sock modeling but I'm not giving up.

Look at those baby blues!
I love this picture!

Visor Beanies

I've added a couple visor beanies to my Etsy Shop for little boys. I'll be adding a few for little girls over the next couple days. I can make these hats in any color combination you'd like.
