Etsy Lover Giveaway! Please help a girl out!

Since last year I have been getting my crochet designs published on Amazon, Smashwords and Etsy ( Ravelry coming soon).  I'm not sure which is my best option. In any case, it's so exciting to see what designs are the most popular and on what sites.

Last year I published Christmas Ornaments to Crochet & Embellish Vol 1.

This year I'm close to publishing Wine Bottle Cozies to Crochet & Embellish Vol 1.
Coming soon!
It is very time consuming working on the design, perfecting the directions and then snapping and editing pictures for the design but it is all worth it seeing my design uploaded online or in print.

I plan on having a big Giveaway to promote the two above mentioned books soon but in the meantime, I would love a little help getting my Etsy shop noticed.

If you would please help a girl out, it would be very much appreciated and with your help, I'm having a giveaway!

Top prize is a $15 Etsy Gift card that will be emailed to you if you are the top winner, 2nd winner would be a handmade crocheted Cozy of your choosing that is available in my Handmade Cozy section of my Etsy Shop - Kimber Shook's Designs.

If you love crocheting, check out my right side bar for free patterns available.

If you love giveaways, please check out my left side bar for a couple that I have going on.  Why not make the most out of stopping by Kimber's Life today!

Let's live a little...

I'm going a  little crazy lately.  The time factor is a huge predator.  My daughter and I have been working on her wedding in June. My family and I have been helping out with my brother who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ewing Sarcoma Cancer last year and now has progressed to Stage 4 this February.  Such a bittersweet year so far.

All the while, I'm trying to work on several more crochet designs, finish Destiny Unhinged #2 and get my Etsy shop stocked up.

But it's your lucky day...
For a limited time grab a free crochet pattern and experience Kimber Shook's Designs yourself.

Snowman Hat and Scarf Wine Bottle Cozy Crochet Pattern

I hope the rest of your May is beautiful in every way and that you have time to enjoy each and every moment.  Moments last for a second in the present but a lifetime in your memories.  Always remember to cherish them.

Exciting News...

So I wish I can say I've accomplished more in the time frame that I gave myself but still I'm proud of what I have done.

So far out of the 16 crochet items that I designed over 3 years ago, I have a little over half, formatted and uploaded to Etsy, Amazon & now Smashwords (which distributes to Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo and Sony). (Yes, I have plenty more designs of various items other than just these ornaments.)

I know that may not seem like much but it takes quite of bit of time, taking the pictures to the steps of the crochet patterns, then formatting them in Photo Plus and again formatting them into Word to go with the instructions.  This is just for Etsy, then you have to reformat to upload onto Amazon & then yet another time to upload onto Smashwords.

If anyone who has found my blog through any of these purchases, I thank you for your purchase and your time in searching me out. I look forward to sharing more designs with you. This is just so very exciting.  I love designing and it is just so amazing when I see that someone purchased something or  even favored something from my Etsy shop.

If anyone interested in taking a moment to share my blog, and my design links, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm interested in doing a give away with Rafflecopter, so please continue to watch for it.

Just a little about me...

I have been crocheting since my mother taught me at the age of eight. Along with sewing and writing, this past time has always been one of my favorites especially around Christmas time.

Christmas giving is not complete without a homemade Christmas ornament to be made and given to each and every family member.  Whether crocheted or crafted, I have continued this personally made tradition over the last several years.

In the past, I had often become discouraged with not finding the perfect crocheted ornament pattern, so I began designing my own.  I had often designed my own patterns for gifts, like purses, ponchos, scarves etc... But ornaments were new for me and I actually feel they were a success.

I looked into getting my ornaments published by a publisher but discovered once you hand over your designs, you no longer have rights to them nor does anyone else should they want to make a living at creating and selling them.  All the work and love that I put into these designs for my own purposes, I would love to share with you.

Eventually, I hope to compile all of these ornament patterns into a book in the near future.  In the meantime, I am selling the instructions along with helpful photos for each individual ornament. Right now, my patterns are available to purchase on Etsy.  You should soon be able to find my designs on Amazon as well.

Please do not copy, sell or distribute this pattern.  You do have my permission, however, to create and sell any of these finished ornaments at your local fan fair, craft show or consignment shop. If you are interested in selling these items online, please just mention the pattern is by Kimber Shook. Or if you are interested in purchasing any of these finished products, for an up, close and personal view, please search for me on Etsy at Kimber Shook’s Designs. Finished products coming soon in limited quantities.

You may find some items not available at this time since I am still in the process of adding to Etsy weekly.  I also hope to have items available on other websites in the near future as well.

Please check back here for inspirational designs and up-and coming designs that will be soon be made available.
