Christmas In July!
From Creative Kitty Crochet
and Harmoniously Tangled

My sister Lisa and I are so grateful for all you that have supported our pages, listened to our whining, helped us grow and bought our products, and have now joined us on our blogs, that we are going to do something for YOU!  We will be giving away 6 packages. Each box will contain an item from Creative Kitty Crochet  AND  Harmoniously Tangled and I promise you won’t be disappointed! There will be 2 surprise boxes and we will list the contents of the other four. In order for us to give away six great packages we will unfortunately need to add the shipping fee. Thank you for understanding and I guarantee it will be worth the cost!

During the week of July 11th through the 15th we will be posting at different times and places a Christmas picture. We will let you know this has been done by posting "Merry Christmas!" in a status. When you see one of these posts the hunt is on! It could be on either the Harmoniously Tangled blog or Creative Kitty Crochet blog, or maaaaybe our Storenvy shops. Find it and leave a comment on Creative Kitty Crochet’s It’s a Giveaway page. Tell us what picture you saw, where you saw it. Your comment MUST include the word AGREE so that we know you are aware of the shipping fee. The shipping fee will be listed along with the Christmas picture. We will draw for all the winners on Saturday July 16th. Be sure to check back to see if you are a winner!

That being said...here are some pesky details

1)    Sorry but this is for U.S. residents only as we are not currently shipping anywhere else.
2)    You must LIKE both business pages and follow the blogs.
3)    You must use your name, not your business name, to comment with and type the word AGREE in your comment so that we know you are aware of and are willing to pay the shipping fee. A PayPal invoice will be sent.
4)    All winners will be chosen via Random.org and posted on both blogs.
5)    Winners will have 48 hours to contact either Harmoniously Tangled or Creative Kitty Crochet to claim your prize.

We hope you have as much fun as we have getting these presents together!

Hope you check with me often...you just never know when there will be a giveaway!  Since I like to change things up be sure you check the rules for the current giveaway

Still Learning

As you can see I have been playing with my blog again today.  I am continuing to learn how to adjust colors and add banners and so on.  Funny when I decided to sell my jewelry creations on line I never thought about all of these things.  I am not computer savvy and I have a knack of making things harder than they need to be.  Just ask my sister over at Creative Kitty Crochet.  I also seem to find glitches that make my computer projects even more interesting. LOL
Ah but live and learn and what is life if we do not continue to learn.  Take every day as a gift and use that day to learn something new, help someone else and love someone deeply.
Here is a sample of something new I have created in jewelry and yes it is available in my store now.

Getting Better

I have redesigned my page.  This is an attempt to help me get the hang of changing and redesigning here.  So far so good.  You will see changes again soon as Creative Kitty Crochet and I get ready for our give away.  The packages will be double presents.  One from Creative Kitty and one from Harmoniously Tangled.   We are also planning a couple of mystery boxes.  Should be great fun!  I will warn you it will not be just a sign here and wait to see if you won.  So check back often.  Also head over to www.creativekittycrochet.blogspot.com and follow her blog too as she has some great things going on and she will also post information.
As for me right now I have been a very busy bee getting ready for a festival.  I am excited and a little nervous about this.  It will be my first outing with my jewelry.  It will be very interesting to see which of my creations people like.  If you are in the Liberty, Indiana area on the fourth of July weekend head on up to the courthouse area and look me up.  I will be on the north east side of the court house.  For those of you who have been before I will be near the area where the FFA sales their ice cream.  I look forward to meeting you.

Swinging is harder than I thought

My last post I talked about how I was going to get into the swing of having a blog.  Did you notice the date??  Well like my name of Harmoniously Tangled trying to make all the twists and turns sometimes throws our swing off.  But my dear sister has now come up with something to push me into this a little more.  She says our business should have a combined giveaway.  Yes Creative Kitty Crochet (her store link is on this page, she also has a blog on blog spot) and Harmoniously Tangled will be doing a Christmas in July giveaway.  Keep your eye on our blogs for information!
I have been very busy.  Many new things in my store.  I have now posted my new liquid embroidery items.  There are new necklaces and bracelets.  Just lots of fun.  Head on over and check those out.
I am now pushing myself to learning more and getting my jewelry before more people.  I will be doing my first festival on July 4th weekend.  If you are in the Liberty, Indiana area at that time head on up to the court house lawn and look me up.  I would love to meet you.
Here is one of my new liquid embroidery items.  A Mail Bag!  With so many receiving letters from people in the military I wanted to give everyone a nice place to store those treasures.

Getting into the Swing

Time to get into the Swing of having a business and a blog.  Yes it is time to turn the switch and get things rolling.  Harmoniously Tangled is moving forward and branching out a bit.  Coming new to my store is liquid embroidery items.  I will be offering baby blankets that can be personalized with the babies name and if you want the birth date.
There will also be another surprise item posted today.  A special keepsake item.  So make sure you keep checking back today. 
As I am getting these things started it will be a gentle swing at first to add them.  I want to give you a sneak peak at an liquid embroidery item that I did little over 20 years ago.  My nephew liked dinosaurs but back then you could not find special items like that.  So this aunt set out and made a very special gift.  A hand painted blanket.  After a trip to the library where I searched for pictures of the dinosaurs I then returned home and hand drew and painted the blanket in this picture.  The paints do not wash out or bleed.  Tri-chem is the best liquid embroidery paint I have every used.  I have just purchased another set and I am excited to get back into this hobby once again.
It may take years but do not give up on things you have enjoyed in the past.  You never know when they may come around again.
