Guess what time of year it is? (I know 4th of July is tomorrow but I’m not talking about that. Happy 4th to our American friends, by the way.)
Yes, the year is halfway over and it’s time to celebrate Christmas in July. Ooooh, this gets me excited for red and green decorations, fragrant pine trees, sweet aromas in the kitchen…….man, the list goes on.
This next sponsor is going to get you in the mood too. Do you hear the jingling bells?
Sweetly Made (Just for You) – click here
Emilee from Sweetly Made was taught how to knit by her grandmother several years ago. She decided to learn how to make stockings so that she could gift them to other people. Emilee quickly fell in the love with the art and challenge of it and has been knitting ever since.
I mean, come on……who wouldn’t melt having their own completely unique hand-knit stocking hanging from the fireplace? It makes me feel all cozy just thinking about it. And the variety Emilee comes up with is going to astound you. She really does make these all by hand. Wow.
Emilee’s amazing talent doesn’t stop there. She also knits little baby beanies……
Click here to find them in her etsy shop. She even has a few boy colors available.
And also makes flower clips that look great on or off of one of her beanies. Gosh, I love a little baby in a sweet beanie.
Emilee has her blog here, stocked full with pictures showing off some of her past creations and custom designs. She loves custom orders and is ready to make whatever your little imagination comes up with. If you’d like to order a stocking, you can fill out a form on the left sidebar of her blog or click here.
She also has an etsy shop found here, where she has all of her beanies and flower clips listed. Wow, such fun colors and styles.
And just like I mentioned above, Emilee would like to do a giveaway. She has graciously donated this lavender baby beanie with clip, to one of you. (Don’t you just want one in every shade she offers.?)
**Please note: The format for entering giveaways has changed. You must enter in a separate comment for each entry. (Example: If you’d like 5 extra entries for visiting a shop, you must enter 5 different comments, in addition to any other entries/comments.) This will help me out immensely. Typing out every entry was becoming a full time job all itself. :) Wow. But such a great thing that so many are participating. So thanks.
