I am so so excited to be writing this post. Seriously. You have no idea how long I’ve waited to do this.
First of all, I just want to share something with you all. When I first start selling my amigurumi, I did it thinking I’d sell a few here and there. Maybe to friends and family. In fact, I remember that first sale to a stranger. My heart was pounding as I packaged up Milton Bear. My hands trembled as I passed him over to the postal worker behind the counter.
And for nearly a week, I sat chewing on my lip, nervous that my customer hated poor poor Milton bear.
And then it happened.
My first piece of feedback. And she told me she loved Milton and that he was even cuter in person.
So I sold a few more pieces here and there. And then I finally realized that this is exactly what I wanted to do. Make these adorable little creations and share them with people who needed a little piece of pick me up. And so the Sugar Crumbs you see today was born.
It’s been a huge learning process. (After all, I wanted to be a teacher. I never expected to run a business selling crocheted toys!) And through this learning process, I’ve had the amazing pleasure of getting to know so many people. I’ve been able to provide hundreds of pieces of my amigurumi to wonderful families, both online and off, in just the past year. I’ve had the joy of helping people bring their gift lists to life. I can’t tell you how flattering it is to be chosen as a business you include in on holiday.
It’s been truly amazing and it’s no secret that I have the sweetest fan base a business could ask for.
So now I want to give something back. It’s my biggest giveaway yet!
Now, not only has this been an amazing year, we just hit 1800 likes on my Facebook page! Yay! So this giveaway is to celebrate that accomplishment and to show my true appreciation for you all.
*Drum Roll Please*
I’d love to give you all something but since I can’t, I’m going to give one lucky person one amazing prize.
I’m giving away, no strings attached, one year of amigurumi to ONE lucky person. The winner will receive one amigurumi per month for the duration of 2014. The pieces will be of my choosing, so it’ll be like a surprise in your mailbox once a month.
Already have Sugar Crumbs pieces? No worries! When you win, I’ll find out what you already have so that you won’t end up with duplicates.
The giveaway ends on Christmas at midnight, with the winner being announced on 12/26 at 12 PM EST!
