a giveaway from KMCrochetDesigns!

Everyone meet Kristen.

Kristen, this is everyone.

Kristen Mahoney is a new wife, a mommy to those 2 little nuggets of gorgeousness up there, and a crafty goddess who crochets the cutest little hats for cute little heads. She’s a stay at home mama and is living the life I dream of every morning when I hit that stupid snooze button for the 3rd time and finally drag my butt out of bed to go to work.

“My favorite thing about being a stay at home mom is that I get to watch my girls grow up and teach them new things without having to miss out on the most important things in their lives.”

Lucky ducky.

Kristen and I found each other through six degrees of separation in a Facebook mommy group and as soon as I saw her creations, I immediately jumped on the chance to help get her name out there because quite simply, the world needs more of these.

With her 2 beautiful little beings as her inspiration, Kristen started crocheting 2 years ago and continues to adorn little heads with her new designs. She says she’s always willing to try new styles and animals and she has lots of fun coming up with new hats. And with a little encouragement from our mommy friends, Kristen recently launched her Etsy shop, KMCrochetDesigns.

This is where you all come in.

To help an awesome mama get her name out there, I offered to do a giveaway because hey, one of you gets one of the cutest hats in the entire world, I get lots of comments and blog love, and Kristen Mahoney becomes a household name like Martha and Oprah. Win, win, win. So here’s how it’s gonna work – there are a few different ways to enter to win. The more things you do, the more entries you have and the better your odds will be. You can do any or all of the 4 following things to enter (if you do more than 1, leave me a separate comment for each one, also be sure to include your email address when you comment so I have a way to contact you):

  1. Go to Kristen’s Facebook page and click the big ol LIKE! button. Then browse her designs and come back and leave me a comment letting me know which one you would pick if you win.
  2. Visit her Etsy shop, KMCrochetDesigns and leave me a comment telling me which hat is your favorite on there.
  3. Kristen is a slurpie junkie. It’s true. It’s a bit out of control. She will drink a slurpie in the dead cold of an Icelandic winter if you let her. So in honor of her love affair with fruity ice chunks in a cup, leave me a comment with a drink you can’t live without. Mine of course is Miller of the Lite variety.
  4. Wish me a happy birthday (today only – Thursday 10/4) and tell me how young I look for a 29-year-old. 🙂

The winner will pick the design he/she wants, Kristen will make it especially for them. She’s even willing to take requests if the winner has another animal or something else in mind that they didn’t see on her pages (obviously provided she thinks it’s doable). Entries end next Wednesday, 10/10/12 at midnight, and a winner will be chosen at random a week from today, Thursday 10/11/12 (a pretty awesome date for a win I do believe).
Good luck!!

  28. Shoot! 8 minutes late! HAPPY BIRTHDAY though! If I look as great as you do at 29 I will be very happy!

  29. Theresa

    Are you kidding me 29?! You look crazy good!

  31. Definitely the owl hat…I can’t get enough owls! So cute!

  32. Hmm I love hot chocolate…it’s just what I need on a cold morning!
