Lavenderily Review and Giveaway!!

I am so excited to have Lavenderily on my blog! I actually graduated with the owner Kris, and she just had a little baby girl this past summer! Kris is insanely talented at crocheting and I have to give her major credit because when I found out I was pregnant with Vincent, I wanted to crochet him a blanket so I went out and bought all these supplies and yarn...well I crocheted a peice maybe 2X2 inches and it took me FOREVER... that was the extent of my crocheting! So the fact that Kris can make these amazing peices is so neat!

She sent a one of her Earflap Beanies for Luke this past week and it was perfect. I showed my husband who NEVER seems enthusiatic about any accessories I get for the boys and he was shocked at how well made the hat was! For my husband to comment on something is a miracle in itself! The beanie fit look perfect and he looks adorable in it!


I love the braided sides and pom on the top!


The blue matches his eyes PERFECTLY

Luke LOVES Lavenderily!



The comments did not stop there though, Jordan's sister saw the hat and thought it came from a high end baby boutique, she was shocked to find that something this well made was available on Etsy! I hands down stand by Kris at Lavenderily for amazing detail to her work. I love Luke's beanie!

Here is a bio from the owner:
 

Hi, I'm Kris :) I started Lavenderily a few weeks after my daughter was born. Crocheting and crafting is something that i have been doing for years, and I love it! I also love being able to stay home with my daughter, so the two seem to be a great fit. My husband is a full time student, and works on top of that, so when we made the decision for me to stay home, I knew that i wanted to help out somehow. When Lily was born, so was the idea of Lavenderily. My days are full of feedings, diapers, giggles, stories, and play time, and my evenings are filled with hooks and yarn. Some of my favorite things are the Sock Monkey Hat, the Baby Cocoon, and the Popcorn Slouchy Hat. The baby girl mobile is another favorite, Lily loves hers, and I love that it's handmade and unique. Thanks for looking, Merry Christmas!

Kris is offering one lucky winner a Baby Cocoon (small or large) and an item(s) of their choice, up to $25!
