Giveaway: Freckles Galore (CLOSED)


Recently, I was lucky enough to win an awesome crayon roll up from Freckles Galore, through a giveaway from the wonderful blog Mother of 1 Princess and 2 Princes. I chose the Puppy Love print, but there are all sorts of fun fabrics to choose from. Crayon roll ups are a fun and functional way to tote your little one's crayons anywhere you need them to go - to resaurants, on long car rides, to grandma's house, you name it! And best of all, these roll ups come preloaded with crayons, so you're ready to go!

Let's get to know Carrie from Freckles Galore a bit better!


Please introduce yourself and your shop.
MY NAME IS CARRIE AND MY SHOP IS FRECKLES GALORE AT www.frecklesgalore.etsy.com. I AM CURRENTLY A STAY AT HOME MOM OF 3 WONDERFUL KIDS, AND A WIFE TO A WONDERFUL HUSBAND.

How did you decide on your shop name? What does it mean?
WHILE THINKING ON A SHOP NAME, I WANTED SOMETHING CUTE AND SOMETHING EASY TO REMEMBER. I ALSO WANTED SOMETHING THAT REFLECTED ME AND MY KIDS. I CHOSE FRECKLES GALORE BECAUSE ALL OF MY KIDS HAVE FRECKLES BUT MY OLDEST DAUGHTER AND I HAVE FRECKLES GALORE!!!!

How did your business get its start?
I STARTED MY SHOP SHORTLY AFTER MEETING A FRIEND OF MINE WHO MAKES AND SELLS BEAUTIFUL HAIRBOWS ON ETSY..www.preciousangelbows.etsy.com. SHE INTRODUCED ME TO ETSY AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE IDEA OF SELLING MY CREATIONS AND MAKING SOME MUCH NEEDED EXTRA MOOLAH FOR OUR FAMILY! I STARTED OUT JUST SELLING CRAYON ROLL UPS AND DRESSES. I HAVE LOVED ADDING NEW AND UNIQUE THINGS TO MY SHOP AND ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW IDEAS TO COME MY WAY!

What is your personal favorite item in your shop?
MY FAVORITE ITEM? DO I REALLY HAVE TO CHOOSE ONE? i GUESS IT WOULD BE THE CRAYON ROLL UPS! I LOVE SEEING THE CREATIVITY OF MY KIDS COME OUT WHILE THEY COLOR! IT IS AN EASY ENTERTAINER WHILE WE ARE OUT AND ABOUT! THE CRAYON ROLLS HAVE BEEN A SANITY SAVER WHILE IN CHURCH OR IN A WAITING ROOM SOMEWHERE. I LOVE USING THE SOFT FLANNEL AND THE WIDE RIBBON. KIDS LOVE SOFT THINGS AND THE WIDE RIBBON IS EASIER FOR LITTLE FINGERS TO TIE. THEY FIT IN A DIAPER BAG OR PURSE AND CAN BE TAKEN ANYWHERE!

What is your favorite crafty activity? Are there any particular crafts you'd love to learn?
I LOVE TO QUILT! MY MOM TAUGHT ME WHILE I WAS PREGNANT WITH MY SECOND CHILD. I AM ADDICTED! RECENTLY I HAVE STARTED MAKING BABY RAG QUILTS WITH MATCHING PEE PEE DOMES TO GIVE AS BABY SHOWER GIFTS.
SOMEONE RECENTLY GAVE ME A SMOCKING MACHINE. I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN! NOW I JUST HAVE TO FIND TIME TO FIGURE IT OUT AND GIVE IT A TRY! THIS MAY BE SOMETHING I ADD TO MY SHOP IN THE FUTURE!

What do you love to do? What makes you smile?
I LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY! MY KIDS KEEP ME SMILING. I LOVE TO LISTEN TO THEM PLAY AND...THE THINGS THEY COME UP WITH!!! MY FAMILY IS SUCH A PRECIOUS GIFT AND A DREAM COME TRUE!!!


Here are just a few of the many great crayon roll ups sold by Freckles Galore!

I would suggest she make a crochet & knitting needle roll up too! I made one many years ago and loved it but it has disappeared over the years. I used heavy clear plastic instead of the inside fabric so you could see the needle size on the side of crochet hooks while they were still in the pocket.
