Today, I would like to introduce you to Julie of Julie MayRee Photography! Not only is she a photographer, but knitter-extraordinaire as well! She and I became friends via Facebook not too long ago. Turns out we have mutual friends AND are contacts of one another over on Flickr but never really communicated until recently. We began chatting and she showed me her knitting skills. I about FELL OVER! We immediately did a swap of goods and then came up with the idea of pairing up my headbands with her GORGEOUS Chunky Beanies! The idea of getting 3,4, 5 different looks out of ONE hat made us BOTH giddy and a give away was planned!
Julie not only knits beanies, but she also knits Nest Bowls along with other goodies.. She uses the BEST hand spun, chunky and thin, ultra textured and gorgeous colored variations of hard to find yarns. The quality of her items are top notch. She does not disappoint! I have her beanie AND one of her nest bowls. All I have to say is WOW! Every photographer should have AT LEAST one of her items in their prop stash :-)
So for our give away this week, Julie is giving away ONE of her Beautiful Chunky Base Beanies with bow. Winner will have their choice of picking the bow color from the pics shown below.
Julie also offers other embellishments for her Beanies that range from doves to butterflies. You can see a few of her embellishment offerings below and check out her Etsy Shop!
(If you are not the winner of this great give away, I encourage you to check out the offerings Julie has in her Etsy Shop!)
To add to it, (because I always have to include something from my own stash ;-) ) I am giving away The Minnie Pearl Collection of 3 headbands for Newborn Portraiture that I made exclusively for this give away. These headbands can be worn as is OR they can be strung through one of Julie's Chunky Beanies to create a new look! With three headbands in this collection, you will be able to have THREE different looks! Winner also picks the bow color that accompanies the Beanie so that makes FOUR different looks on the same hat! How awesome is that! Take a look at these pics to see really how beautiful this beanie is combined with my Minnie Pearl Collection!
(if you would like to purchase the Minnie Pearl Collection now, you can find them available in my Etsy Shop!)
And as always, to top it all off, my best and ever so generous friend Terry of Sassy Designs is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to her SHOP! We all know the possibilites are endless with her goodies! If you are not familiar with Terry's Shop yet, you are soooo missing out! Check it out NOW!
