Partying Pinterest-Style!

Sorry for the late post.  I had an idea to talk about on here, and then I changed my mind...  hence the delay! I completed about 10 cowls and 10 pinbacks to go with them for the little shop that sells my wares:  DreamScapes Boutique in Wauconda.  If you're ever in the area, I encourage you to check it out.  I can't seem to leave there without purchasing something unique.  Plus, they have an awesome little coffee shop a few doors down called Honey Hill.  My mouth is watering because I can't wait to have a regular coffee with a shot of almond and some heavy whipping cream.  YUM!  There are more shops and such to talk about there on Main Street, but I'll save that for another time, along with some pictures of the cowls that will be heading to the shop today.

Speaking of cowls...  I have a new one I put up in the shop!  I love the color, and it's made from very soft yarn.  Look!
The full listing can be found here!

So what do you think?  This one might be my favorite...  that felty flower really makes it pop!  Speaking of the felty flower, that was one of the two projects that we whipped up during a pinterest party at my house this weekend.  Look at Jamie and Naomi showing off their dahlias:

Want to learn it, too?  Here you go!

In the spirit of flowers, we also made cute little pendants, too!  I didn't get a chance to take a picture of everyone's, but I can show you a picture of mine.  My sister-in-law crafted me one for the holidays and I just had to figure out how to do it!

If you want to learn, too - have at it!

Lastly, I asked all of you what you would like to see as a giveaway...  I had various responses.  I think the biggest response I received was to give away a cowl.  I thought about it - and I would love to - but I don't have one on hand to just give away at the moment.  So I brainstormed...  what can I do with cowls...  And I remembered you can use a coupon on etsy if I set one up!  So that I did.  It will be up through February (10 more days) for you to use:  
At checkout on etsy, use coupon code:
COWLSALE to get 20% off your cowl/scarf!

But I can't just limit this post to a coupon.  I  promised you a giveaway!  And here it goes...

Warm and lovely!

This little coffee cozy doesn't have any pockets like the heart one from last week, but it is made of 100% cotton and wool felt and dmc floss.  Quality materials!  Here's how you can win:

Until next time.... stay warm!  It's going to be insanely cold here this week.  It's a great week to stay in, drink a cup of cocoa, and craft!  I leave you with a picture of more of those felty flowers...
