I've met a lot of incredible people and these next two are no exception ... they pack a big punch with their loving, generous hearts. I have two fun gifts to give, one that may make you feel like dancin' ;) and the other that will warm you up this winter season. Gift 1 comes from (my friend :) I get to call her that) Danna, a truly gifted baby photographer over there in Calgary and when she heard that I was doing a little holiday giveaway ... guess what she did? Contacted me to offer up a $10 iTunes gift card (American credit). Isn't that awesome?! I don't want to make her blush, but she truly is just one of those people that you run into that just seem to always be giving. It's just in her nature I think. You can see some of Danna's amazing work here.
Gift 2 comes from someone who's work many of you have seen 'up close & personal' - the wonderful Jessica from Noggins Beanies! Make sure you scroll down & hit that "become a Fan" button she has on her blog. Jessica's work is so well crafted and the perfect size for any head (teeny-tiny newborns included!). I think her Jack & Jill is probably THE most requested hat at my newborn sessions. Here's what Jessica told me about how Noggins Beanies came to be:
I started crocheting beanies in college with a roommate while we needed something to do over Christmas break. We worked at a ski resort and the guys working there would buy them from us. About 4 years later I made a beanie for my first baby and everyone kept saying that I should sell them. I found out about Etsy so I setup a shop and it just sort of grew from there. I like to make styles and colors that I would wear and then size them down to fit babies. I'm using 100% cotton now and love the soft feel and durability. My husband gets a new beanie every year for Christmas and my girls will probably get them too!
Jessica is offering any beanie in her Etsy shop - you just pick the style & size! (To be delivered after Christmas due to our time constraints right now.)
