Me and Madeline - My Etsy shop and a giveaway

It's been a long time in the works, so I'm very excited to officially announcing the Grand Opening of my Etsy shop, Me and Madeline.

(And yes, I think I just gave away Peanut's name!)

An idea hatched several months ago that I mulled over for some time and then just decided to make it happen. My shop is a work in progress. But if you head over there right now, you'll find lots of warm fall hats, some girly headbands and even a few items for little boys and men.

I've spent many hours developing unique patterns for each of my items and I'm so happy with the result. In fact, I'm loving my flower beanie hats so much, it's actually getting me excited about cold weather! I think you'll agree that my sweet Madeline and my patient sisters and niece do a great job modeling my creations!

Starting today through the entire month of October, I'll be offering FREE shipping on all orders! Check the shop announcements on the front page for more details. I'm also excited to offer special packaging on all my orders. They arrive on your doorstep ready for gift-giving! Click here for more photos.

I've also started a new blog specifically for my Etsy shop, but it will also be where I release my inner crafty side. I'll be sharing fun tutorials for projects that I've worked on and also keep you updated when I release a new item to the shop or run a special. I hope you'll check it out. This blog will still be here, of course!

In celebration of this new venture, of course I'm hosting a giveaway! I would love to custom make something for you or your little one! Just head over to the new shop and leave me a comment letting me know what item you'd love to have.

TWO of my readers will receive a $20 credit in the shop.

For extra entries, please feel free to leave an additional comment for each of the following that you chose to do:

1. Follow the "Me and Madeline" blog.
2. Follow "Me and Madeline" on Twitter.
3. Tweet this giveaway (can be done once daily).

I'll randomly select two winners on October 11th and announce the winner on Monday, October 12th.
