the announcement and my first GIVEAWAY!

 I have mentioned before that I get a little overly excited about new crafty projects that I see around or dream up in my head. That means I have about 694 yards of fabric that I haven't known what to do with. Until now! At least I finally found some motivation.


With the adoption officially on the docket (we got the stamp of approval just yesterday. Eddie's birthday - coincidence? I don't think so.), I decided to open an Etsy shop (Lovely Little Whimsy) to a. use up my fabric (and give me an excuse to buy more) and b. to earn a little cash for the expenses that come along with adding another little bundle to the family. If you even glance at my shop, you may notice that I need a girl. Yes, need.



I've also built in a little page on my header up there so you can drop by whenever you please to see what's new. I am hoping to add a lot of new things all the time so there is a great variety, but I am also open to custom orders!


And now for the fun part... the giveaway.



One of my favorite items are the frayed flowers and I am going to give away one of your choosing. I can add it onto a pin to add a little whimsy to your hats, bags, jackets, and so on, or I can attach it to a headband for you or a little one in your life. You choose! I am going to make a lot more flowers this weekend, and you can pick your favorite. 


Leave a comment here with your favorite item (doesn't have to be a flower) and you're automatically entered. Become a follower and that's another entry! Tweet it and you get one more. Just leave a comment for each of your entries!
I will pick a random winner next Wednesday, July 6. 
Good luck and happy shopping!
