Another Thursday - Another Giveaway!

This weeks giveaway is from Knitted Lily Creations, who is giving away a Granny Square Beanie!
Read ahead to learn more about this talented knitter, find a COUPON CODE and see how to enter for your chance to win!

This giveaway is open Worldwide!



When did you start getting into crafting, and what did you start with?
I've been crafting for as long as I can remember! I first got into crafting with yarn though around ten at a Girl Scout meeting, starting out with just knitting scarfs and slowly growing from there. I was told by the lady teaching us to knit at the meeting that I couldn't be taught due to being left handed. Instead of giving up though I went home and taught myself to knit with the computer! Ever since I've been teaching myself many new crafts and loving all of them.



Do you work outside of your Etsy shop? 
I do have a second job outside of Etsy. I work at a nursing home doing laundry and housekeeping. Sometimes it’s hard to balance the two but I find that my Etsy shop takes away from the stress of my other job and vice versa. To keep the two balanced and find time for everything, I do a lot of scheduling. My work space is pretty much crowded with yarn, needles and hooks, and papers!

How did you learn about Etsy?
I learned about Etsy through my cousin’s wife. She has her own little crochet shop on Etsy and she really encouraged me to check it out and think about opening my own.




When did you start your shop?
I opened Knitted Lily Creations off Etsy on October 23rd of 2012 but I didn't open on Etsy until November 12th of 2012.

Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
My creations are inspired by many things honestly. My blankets are usually inspired by color palates that I fall in love with while my hats are inspired by my customers! I love when customers request special creations as well because they always show me new ideas I would have never thought of making!


Is there a certain item with a story behind it?
My penguin set was inspired by one of my friends! When she found out she was having a little girl I wanted to make her something really special she would love. My friend is the biggest penguin lover you will ever meet so I thought it would be adorable for her to get to dress her little angel up as her favorite animal and show her off!

Do you have advice for any shops just starting?
It takes time! I know it’s been said about a million times but it’s true. It really takes time to get that first sale and to keep getting those sales. Sometimes you’ll lose faith in your shop (I've done it about four times already!) but you just have to keep with it and push through those times. Eventually things will pick up again! Also market! Market, market, market! You need to get your product out there in front of your customers (and hopefully into their hands) so that they know you exist!


Do you have any social media pages?

You can keep up with awesome new sneak peeks on Facebook.
And random thoughts, quotes, and products on Twitter.

Fun Questions to Get to Know You:

What is the furthest place you have traveled?
The furthest place I have traveled would be from Illinois to Alabama to visit my Aunt. I love every time I get to make the trip! My Aunt’s house is always beautiful and I love getting to go with her to any job that she has at the time. (She’s an interpreter for the deaf!) We always have a fun time when we get together.


Which bad habits  drive you crazy?
When people eat in really gross ways! I know some people can’t help it but when you’re at a restaurant (or even home) and people are chewing with their mouths open and taking with a huge mouth-full of food it drives me nuts. I always want to scream!

What is your favorite food?
My favorite food would have to be my boyfriend’s strawberry cheesecake! He makes it all from scratch and uses fresh strawberries every time! It’s even better when he drizzles chocolate over a slice of it right before serving. Yummy!


Do you have any pets?
I have a little two year old mixed breed puppy named Devika! She is the most adorable little girl ever and I love her so much. My boyfriend bought her for me after I told him not to and called me two minutes before he had to go to work to tell me he did it anyway! (I’m pretty sure that was so he didn't get yelled at.)

If you could get back a lost item from your past, what would it be?
I use to wear a chain with random charms on it. It had a Celtic cross, a St. Christopher’s pendent, a Start of David pendent, and other random little charms that meant something to me. I wore it every day and I loved it. Then I moved and in the first week of moving I lost it! I never took it off either! It just disappeared.







A Granny Square Beanie - $20 Value!
This beanie can be made in the winner's colors of choice (up to four different colors!) and is perfect for the upcoming fall days. The design is a granny square stitch pattern with a basic crochet band at the bottom for added comfort and topped with a double layer flower, again in the winner's choice of color. This hat can be made for newborn to 12 years old and can be shipped worldwide!
This Giveaway is open Worldwide!
