Yummy You! by Twinkie Chan Giveaway!

Monday, November 4, 2013

Right before I opened Mermaidens, I decided I wanted to be more creative and headed to the arts and crafts section at the library. There I found Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies - a book dedicated solely to creating food with crochet! Completely enchanted, I checked it out and marveled at Twinkie Chan's sheer talent and planned to make a bunch of adorable cupcakes and ice creams for myself - that is, until I actually tried to crochet... (cough) I vowed to leave the crocheting to Twinkie, and followed her creative peruses on various social networking sites with equal parts awe and admiration!

I was particularly excited by her newest venture, Yummy You!, where she has socks, scarves, magnets, and wallets - all at super affordable prices!

So when nestled in my inbox was an email from Selina at Yummy You! asking if I wanted to do a giveaway with them, I just about died from excitement!


In case you can't tell, I'm pretending to eat the cupcake scarf - as you do.

You can enter to win this ADORABLE cupcake scarf from Yummy You! by using the Rafflecopter widget below! This giveaway will end on November 18th and is open to international readers! GOOD LUCK ♡
