Win your Wish List

Did you know that you can add items from any website to your Amazon.com Wish List?? That's pretty cool. I've added some gorgeous handspun yarns from favorite Etsy spinners to mine. And, when you add an item to your Wish List, you are eligible to enter The Wish and Win $100,000 Sweepstakes from Amazon.com.
How does it work? It's easy. First you install their "Add To Wish List" button to your bookmarks toolbar. (Make sure you're already signed up for an account at Amazon.com.) When you're browsing the internet and see something that you'd like, click on "Add To Wish List" and it will automatically be added.

Read the official rules HERE, but you can enter once a week from now until December 19th and you could possibly win your wish list! What a great way to win some Holiday Gifts from LazyTcrochet!

Color Chart


I just made a fun color chart for an upcoming Blog Review and Giveaway. I love all the colors available in Caron's Simply Soft. I stink at tying tiny bows and the yarn tends to separate as well. I think next time I'll make tiny swatches.
Watch for an upcoming Glove Giveaway here on my blog as well. Stay tuned!

Be Social, Not Snarky!


Cute and Snarky Pet Tags from BowWowzerZ.Etsy.com

"How is it that we've been both doing this same show for over three years now and I've never seen your stuff?" This was the question recently posed to me by a local crafter. The answer? "Because you never took the time to look around you!"
Seriously. I've been doing art and craft shows for several years now and it always amazes me how many people walk right on by. I know it's sometimes busy and you may be by yourself at this show, but it really would only take a few minutes of your time to walk around, talk to people and make an effort to see what it is that they do. Some shows are huge and you wouldn't have time to visit everyone (and I'm not saying that you have to), but if it's a smaller show or if there's a lull in the crowd, what's stopping you?
You may not be interested in my knit and crochet goodies. That's okay. I would still take time to look at yours. Even if I've seen you at a previous show and even if I am not interested in buying something from you, I would still smile and say hello as I moved on around the room.
These friends are brimming with creativity. You'll never know what you'll find! It's called Social Networking. So, take some time to respect your local crafter today. Thank you!
