Giveaway Sponsor #5: sheilalikestoknit

Meet Sheila from sheilalikestoknit. Sheila sent a sweet little acrylic and angora OOAK pig named Percival. 

Yes, it is one of a kind (don't be sad, you may win it), but Percival has an irresistible second cousin, Peter the Pachyderm that is readily available!

I fell in love with Sheila's shop the moment I saw her unique reversible crocheted blankets:

While her shop offers plenty to spoil your children with, Sheila also offers a variety of  lovely cowls and scarves for Mommy's, too. She even sells pattern, lucky you! (Did I mention I can't knit/crochet? I'll leave it up to you Sheila!)

One thing I've just loved about getting ready for this giveaway is talking to Sheila. Here's a little taste:

Q: When did you begin your craft?
A: I was taught to knit by my mother in my teens in the '70's and I quickly went from that to cross stitch and then needlepoint. Life goes on to a full time job, marriage, a child and then in early in 2004, I was forced to stay off my feet. I pick up the needles and started with knitting a scarf and then another, and then another! Next thing I know, I have 50 of them! Off to a local art gallery I go to peddle my wares! They loved and sold them all! Creative Design was born! Two upscale children's boutiques later, here I am! 

Q: What is your favorite item in your shop?
A: I love the original baby blankets in my shop! And they are the most popular item!

Q: Use 3 words to describe yourself/your style:
A: I am opinionated, passionate and I love clean classic styles!

Q: What is the best business decision you ever made? 
A: The best business decision I made was to make my shop a business and not a hobby! And re listing EVERYDAY!

Sheila I will miss chatting you up about this giveaway, I'm just going to have to beg you to do another I suppose!
