Your New Friend Sam Giveaway, Celebrating My 2,000th Sale!

Your New Friend Sam Giveaway Type

Feels like just yesterday I was freaking out over my 1,000th sale. And today, just 4 months later, the shop has had its 2,000th sale. I count each sale as a step in a new direction for my life, and daily, I am blown away that the whirlwind of the holidays never slowed down but only continues to gain momentum.

So to celebrate and thank everyone for their support these past few months, I wanted to do a little give-away! After asking on Facebook about what I should give away from my shop, I decided to give a store credit of $30 to one lucky winner that shares my promo graphic.

So whether you want an address stamp or a thank you stamp… a custom invitation design or paper cut silhouettesa handlettered print of a favorite saying, or glittered bridesmaid invitations… this give-away is for you!

New Etsy Shop Launched: Mama & Mia Boutique, Hand Knit Infinity Scarves + Giveaway!

I’m so excited to share this new shop with y’all!

Over the past few months, Rachel has been racking my brain regarding all things Etsy so it’s been fun seeing this come together! And just last weekend, her Etsy boutique went live!

In her own words, Rachel describes her scarves:

After having my darling daughter Amelia, I really felt inspired to start using my creative juices and get crafting. Since being fashionably dressed has always been a must for myself, Amelia now gets to share in that same joy! Scarves are a staple in my winter wardrobe for staying warm and cute so it only made sense that Amelia have her own as well! Voila! Mama & Mia, scarves for littles and their mamas and basically anyone else with a neck that needs a little lovin!

The Mama & Mia scarf is handmade, hand knit, chunky infinity scarf, made from 80% acrylic and 20% wool yarn.

A couple weeks ago, we got together to take some photographs of her infinity scarves product line. Little Mia napped as we shot all the Mama scarves and then woke up just in time to model the Mia scarves for us.

Hope you enjoy the images as much as I do… product photography is fun! Such a different approach than regular portraits… always trying to maximize the versatility of the scarves and bring all attention to them rather than the model herself—although the model is just as gorgeous!

Check out the photos and then at the end of this post, enter our giveaway for a free scarf for yourself and a friend—or your very own Mia.
