My first year in ETSY

A year ago I opened my Etsy shop, Toppy Toppy Knits

The first days I was in fear of not being able to sell,
 but after a little while, I realized that it was a great showcase for my work.

Friends and family were not only my first clients, but also my sales promoters; as they wore my accessories, their friends asked me to make the same things for them.

Today I am very pleased to have reached my first anniversary, with many new friends and I'm eager to continue knitting, crocheting, and working in what I like so much.

To celebrate, I have a special 15% off coupon code!

Easter is around the corner

Easter is just around the corner. Better start preparing for it

Do you like this cute easter  bunny?

 You Can find the tutorial here

Valentine's Day is almost here

 For anyone who is in love, buying a gift for Valentine's Day is almost obligatory.

 However, we can not afford  Cupid arrows launch our own pockets instead of our heart and we want to give something original, romantic and unique.

So what is the perfect gift for Valentine? Here are some ideas:

   A mini-vacation will always be a welcome gift, especially for those who are urged to flee the daily stress and for those who complain that they hardly have time to be together.

You can make a whole production for a surprise: receive him/her with sunglasses, swimsuit and a planter's punch if the trip will be to Acapulco, or make a game of "treasure hunt" until your lover find the airline tickets.

A detail is always welcome and timeless gift is flowers. Today we have a thousand different ways and  compositions that are true works of art, points out, however,  to get them at the last minute is almost impossible. If you want to surprise her with beautiful flowers it is best to be proactive and get it from the florist in advance.

If you have no time or haven't think of anything yet,  here is the internet, you can find everything, from technological innovations to handmade useful gift.

A quick and chic solution to a bad hair day for any woman is to wear a turban. 

Excellent for whoever wishes to cover your heads for hair loss or religious reasons.
 The turban cover all the hair from the front of the head all the way until the back of the neck. 

Can also be used by patients who undergo chemotherapy, they are able to cover the loss of hair that results from the treatment, that way, they are able to stay in fashion while camouflaging the effects of the chemo treatments.

They would look really pretty with a big button, a flower or a brooch in the front.

Margaritas Anyone???

Margaritas anyone??

The margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila mixed with orange-flavoured liqueur and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the glass rim. It is the most common tequila-based cocktail in the United States.  The drink is served shaken with ice, on the rocks, blended with ice (frozen margarita) or without ice (straight up).

Margaritas may be served in a variety of glasses, most notably the stereotypical margarita glass, a variant of the classic Champagne coupe; this is particularly associated with blended fruit margaritas, and the glass is also used for dishes such as guacamole or shrimp cocktails. In formal settings margaritas are often served in a standard cocktail glass, while in informal settings, particularly with ice, margaritas may be served in an old-fashioned glass.

Alternate fruits and juice mixtures can also be used in a margarita.
