Spotlight Monday: Busy Mama Beanie Boutique

I am so excited to feature one of my own talented friends today!  Busy Mama Beanie Boutique was founded by a full-time working mother of two young children who needed to have a hobby where she could sit down and relax. (We can all relate, right??)  Learning to crochet was on her “Bucket List” so she taught herself to crochet via YouTube tutorials. (I seriously love her drive and determination.) This little hobby quickly turned into an obsession. The creativity is constantly flowing as she comes up with new color schemes and styles for hats and accessories. Products for any age can be made and custom requests are encouraged!  …and just a little side note…I may or may not have been the person who got her addicted to specialty yarn on Etsy….  😉

But the awesomeness doesn’t stop there.  No, it doesn’t.  Julie donates 40% of her shop proceeds to charity!  Let me say that again: 40 PERCENT of her proceeds to charity!!!  So when you order something from Julie, you’re doing 3 things:

1) Allowing a busy mama to sit down, relax, and crochet.  🙂

2) Supporting Julie’s family.

3) Giving money to a great cause!

Julie has graciously offered a GIVEAWAY for today!!  Check out this gorgeous, dainty, perfect little newborn headband.  (I secretly want to win this for my own collection.)
