Friday Feature! :)

Another Friday, another feature! :)

Today's Friday Feature is Nicole from Rainbow Kisses & Butterfly Wishes!!!




Nicole started crocheting in April 2012 when making a bunny ears hat for her daughter. The demand was so great that by July 1st, Nicole opened online and has been successful ever since. Nicole has hosted a few multi-vendor auctions to help other vendors as well.

Friday Feature! :)




This Friday Feature belongs to Brittany of Wonderland of Hats!



Brittany has been crocheting since she was 5 years old with her great grandma. She fell in love with the art and has not stopped since that summer. When people started asking her how much she would charge to make an item, she decided to open up shop. Her shop was set up in May 2011. Check out her page below and give her a "like."

Friday Feature! :)

This Friday's Feature belongs to Jessica at Kountry Girl Kreations!



Jessica is one of my loyal testers. She is from MA. We seem to make similar items, as she not only crochets, but make hooks as well. :) She is much more talented with the clay than I am though. She also designs her own patterns, such as s Sleepy Owl hat, Charlie the Horse hat, and a Boob beanie. Check out her pages listed below and give her a "like" or follow.

Free Patterns, Giveaway, and so much more...

There's a lot going on right now at Cherishable Creations.

1.      I've got a free pattern out for testing. The pattern will be placed on the blog on Thursday. :)

2.     Of course, there's the GIVEAWAY! 
http://cherishablecreations.blogspot.com/2013/09/giveaway.html

3.     Preparing for our Friday Feature. This Friday's feature spot is already confirmed, but if you are interested in being the feature for any future Friday, please fill out this form:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1HXSRoNO4tBva0dQO1tSkCnvUH5Zp9Xpk9lHzDxpRc9w/viewform

4.     We hope to be donating to Boomer Beanies e-book for donations to ShopKimberlie. Her son is undergoing another hip surgery (as I type this). So I bought one of ShopKimberlie's patterns to help out and I hope to donate 1-2 of my patterns to this e-book in support.

5.     Preparing for a December craft show. I have just sewn my first crayon roll for my daughter. So I think I'll sew up some more of those and maybe crochet some shape sets (the pattern purchased from ShopKimberlie).

I think I covered most of what's happening around here. Look for the new free pattern on Thursday. :)
