Shop of the Week - CROCHET MEDLEY

I'm pleased to share my friend Erin's shop with you this week!  Erin owns Crochet Medley, a crochet shop (obviously) where she sells an awesome variety of hand-crocheted goodies!  She has a little something for everyone in the family in her shop!  I have purchased a few things from Crochet Medley over the past 2 years & the quality of her work is excellent!


She sells a wide variety of amigurumi animals... I'm wasn't always a huge fan of crocheted animals, but hers are super cute & the details are amazing!!

 One of my favorite items from her shop are these fun button necklaces. They're perfect for girls of all ages & she can customize them in any colors!

She also sells beanies, scarves, cloths, cozies, and more!  
Take a few minutes & browse Erin's shop!  I'm sure you'll see lots of stuff you'll love!
She loves custom orders, too!

Weekly Wrap Up

I'm now 37 weeks pregnant, so I'm not doing much of anything these days.  I'm not terribly uncomfortable, but I'm definitely unmotivated.  This "nesting" thing everyone keeps talking about has NOT happened to me at all.  Oh well.  I did manage to get some orders mailed out this week, of course!  And I had a little extra time to make some new hats & work on a new pattern!

This is the newest hat in my collection.  It's called the Swivel Beanie.  THIS exact hat is (so far) still available in the RTS sale on my AC fan page!  The pattern will be available "soon"...

I've been making Golf Visors for over a year now, but I finally just sat down and typed up the pattern.  The pattern is available HERE... or you can customize one HERE.

 I didn't post an update, but the Summer Rose Beanie pattern was released last week...  it's a great hat for summer & is available in all sizes.  Pattern available HERE.

Shop of the Week - DIAMOND BOTTLE CAP DESIGNS

I just love seeing all of these bottle caps being up cycled into really cute stuff these days!  This week's SOTW belongs to a friend of mine who customizes some really great things using them!  Teri from Diamond Bottle Cap Designs creates wine glass charms, pet ID tags, key chains, magnets, badge reels, and more!  She's very friendly & loves custom orders, too!



I love these pet ID tags!  They're cuter (and cheaper) than the custom ones you can buy at most pet stores... and she will customize them with your favorite color, font, address, phone number, etc.  Plus, you know they're lightweight, so they're perfect for small dogs/cats too!


Save the date magnets.  Better than those small cards that will probably just get tossed out anyway...


Promotional keychains for your business.  They're really nice, don't you think!?  Great idea!  I might need some of these in the near future, Teri... I'll be in touch.  :)

Shop of the Week - INNER HOOKER

This week's featured shop is Inner Hooker!   

Scotti (the owner) is a fellow hooker (crocheter) and pattern designer.  She's a hard-working mama, and really nice lady!  She has a wide variety of patterns in her shop for all ages.  One of my favorites is this cute little clown bonnet!!  



Visit her shop & "like" her on Facebook to keep up with all of the patterns she has to offer.

Scotti also occasionally hosts CAL's (crochet-a-long) on her page.  Anyone can join, and I'm pretty sure the patterns are free for the CALs... but you can click HERE for more info about that.  This is a photo of a really cool granny square blanket that she was working on recently.  LOVE the colors!! 


Inner Hooker is also one of the vendors that will be participating in my upcoming pattern giveaway that will launch on May 7th.  Make sure you stop by and check that out!
