Featuring hollanddesigns

I've know many crochet designer in my year at Etsy, but no one is talented like Lisa at hollanddesigns where you can find the most beautiful and sweet patterns for every taste and very affordable.
I just want one of each!Align Center

Let's know Lisa more in details:

I learned to crochet when I was 5 years old and grew up playing with balls of yarn and making gifts for family and friends. To this day I absolutely love going to the yarn shop; it makes me giddy!

I began to design "officially" in my early 20s and have published several baby afghan patterns in such magazines as Crochet World, Crochet Fantasy, Crochet Home & Holiday, plus a couple Annie's Attic publications.

I am originally from Wisconsin, but now live near Auckland, New Zealand. My husband is a Dutch/Kiwi, having been born in NZ, but having also lived in Holland for several years. We've been married 2 years and have a little baby girl, Holland Grace, who models many of my designs. I am now a stay-at-home mom and crochet/design in my spare time.

My blog, "The Life of a Crochet Designer" is viewable at

"She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands." (Prov 31:13)

She's also the amazing designer behind the slippers than I'm proud to sell in my shops.
So, don't waste any more time, go check her shop out! If you're a crocheter you'll enjoy making her patterns and if you're not a crocheter...well, you might ask Lisa to sell you a finished product or she will refer you to somebody that can accommodate you!

Featuring EUC Designs

Heila' fellow readers!
Tonight I'm writing all of you from my brand spanking new PC! I really think this is my very first new computer that I personally purchased...usually I just used something handed me over from some one! But now it's not time to talk about me!

I'm here to present you Ilissa, the sweet and talented owner of EUC Designs an adorable etsy shop where you'll find Banner and avatar sets, Custom Design Packages, Business Cards, Banner, avatar, and advertising button sets
That's what Ilissa has to say about herself and her business:

I am a woman of many interests. I started learning about advertising and graphic design through courses I took in high school towards a major in Graphic Design.
After I finished high school, I decided to pursue another interest of mine, which is working directly with people in a helping profession. I am currently in school working towards a bachelor's degree in Human Ecology (Family Social Sciences) but in my spare time, I love to come up with fun and innovative graphic designs.

My interest in graphic design increased when I started designing my own blog and web-based advertisements for other people. I had so much fun with it, I decided to open my own Etsy shop, which features a range of graphic designs designed to help promote you and/or your business!

In the near future, I will be adding blogger templates to the EUC Designs Etsy shop. If you cannot wait and need a new design now, let me know what you are looking for and I will gladly create a customized design just for you. Here are two samples of blogs I have designed from start to finish:
2.) (this blogger template is currently for sale).

Be sure to follow me on Twitter to find out about my new designs as they are released:

So, be sure to check out this amazing shop also because Ilissa has generously offered a discount for all my readers: just put the code CLT15 in the "Note to the seller" during check out and you'll have 15% off until August 31, 2009. Sound fabulous doesn't it??? Good time to do a make over for you shop!

Magic Sunday!

And today was the day after the 4th of July, the day to rest after all the eating and visiting and fireworks, and also a Sunday, the first day of the week before getting to work again.
My Sunday was magical today, I spent the afternoon in my back yard enjoying my kids and a swim pool.....It's amazing how much fun and laugh a hose and a water poodle can do!!!
Sorry, no pictures!!! We had too much fun spraying the water everywhere and my camera is not water proof!
But I hope I added a fun memory in my kids virtual album of fun time together :)

I hope all my readers had a safe and fun 4th of July and a magical day after, just like us!

And before I live I'd like to point out the Jingerbella giveaway again, 'cause I forgot to say in my last post the she's giving away earrings AND a matching pendant!!!!

Also, use the new buttons ad in the left column of my blog to enter the giveaway (don't forget to visit Etsyitup blog for the change to win $15 gift certificate for my shop) and check out new sales :)
Until next time......
