Calizona Designs and *Giveaway*







When Classic Mully does something, she goes all out! Classic is the wonder woman behind Calizona Designs, a shop chock full of sparkly things so if you are easily distracted- finish reading this before you visit there.
When I received the beautiful packets Classic put together for March, I felt like a Hollywood VIP! She was so sweet to set aside one just for me, and inside was a hand painted yarn sampling, a pattern for springtime headband, a set of beaded earrings, a lotus flower hand made pendant and a set of chocolate pearl beaded stitch markers! The cherry on top of it all, was a $10 gift certificate I just used. I bought yarn (I've got it on the brain all the time) but now after looking at some of her jewelry pieces, I regret I didn't get one of those. Jewelry, like sock yarn, doesn't count, in fact if you're like me, it is a mandatory expense just like buying underwear - so feel free to splurge a little ( I know I will be!).
If you've got that packet from Classic in your March box, remember the coupon expires so be sure and redeem it! Let us know what you got too- nothing in her shop is the same and we like to look at the pretties!
For April, Classic sent in hand made and hand painted bamboo knitting needles! Again, she gave me the glam treatment and allotted a gorgeous Hawaiian sunset pair for me. As part of the giveaway, the winner will be able to pick out their own pair from the ones she sent in. She really does it all, everything from cherries to strawberries to ladybugs to pink cheetah print! If you have an idea for some painted needles, Classic is your go-to gal. The lucky commenter winner will also receive a special March packet I have reserved for this giveaway. Inside is a beautiful pearl and crystal jade colored bracelet, a yarn sampling, the coupon, and jade colored glass stitch markers! The value of this giveaway is worth $70-$90! All you have to do, is visit Calizona Designs and post about something you like here on the blog. I will count your twittering, facebook posts, ravelry posts or blogposts as extra entires- just let me know that is what you did! Help us get the word out about this amazing shop! I will be drawing on Tuesday, so hurry hurry!
Thank you, Classic for going the extra mile in everything you do! We look forward to more sampling of your special work in coming boxes!

THERE ARE PIRATE KNITTING NEEDLES!!! I need more needles anyway, since I have all of three pairs....

Cathy said...

My first choice was the Magenta and Black yarn. The colors are so vibrant. Then i say those needles. I loved the Breast Cancer ones as well as the sunset ones. Off to tweet about this. Amazing stuff!!!!

I may have to get the needles anyway - my motto - so much yarn not enough needles.

Another pair or 2 can never hurt.

Mette said...

My fave on this fun site is the pink and black yarn. I love hot pink and black, and would luv to see how it'd knit up!!

Gosh, lots of goodies to choose from! I think my favorite thing is the pair of Breast Cancer Awareness needles.

Best of luck with your shop!

The Hawaiian sunset needles are cute, as are the pirate ones!

Rachel O said...

My mom is a breast cancer survivor so my first thought was the needles, but on thinking about it, she really doesn't need reminders so I'd go with the Hawaiian sunset ones - she'd really like them.

The black and pink sock yarn jumped out at me when I opened the page, and I'm not normally a fan of pink. I also really like the hair feather as well, even though it's also pink.

Thank you so much for sharing this one... I think I may go broke shopping for yarn alone!... but what I am really in love with is the jewelry, especially the Pink Watch. Must go tweet about this store now...

chicagoknitter said...

I have three friends that have survived breast cancer, all of them before the age of 45. So for me the breast cancer awareness needles are particularly special. Thanks for making such a beautiful pair.

PIRATE knitting needles?! I may have to start using straights again....

Though it seems slightly prejudiced against us ninja knitters. Where are the ninja needles? Why doesn't anybody notice the ninjas?

.... Oh, yeah.

I really like Bodie's Necklace. Obviously talent and good taste run in the family.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

The Diamonds and Guns Yarn was added after I left my first comment, but it's so in line with some pics I posted last week about possible gun themed yarn colorways that it cracks me up. http://kitten-with-a-whiplash.blogspot.com/2009/03/therapy.html

I like the pirate knitting needles, the black and pink yarn, and the robins egg roving. So much great stuff in her shop! I didn't get one of her samples but they looked so cool, maybe I can get one this way!

Definitely the amethyst sock yarn! Wow!

SupaCindy3000 said...

I love the Diamonds and Guns yarn. Love the color, love the name!

Daisymum said...

I would have to say Ashley's Green. Not only is green my favorite color, my daughter's name is Ashley, and to top it off I have a twin sister as well. It is beautiful roving. All items in shop are very pretty and unique.

dinahsaurus said...

I love the Spring roving; it looks like Easter Eggs!

The Pirate Knitting Needles are so funny - I really like them. Think they would sort of put the "Arghhhhh" I sometimes need in my knitting :)

Diamonds and Guns merino yarn speaks to me. And I just the idea of matching merino roving for spinning a companion yarn!

All of the needles are adorable! I especially loved the zebra, sunset, pirate, and the flames. The 80s ones were hilarious...they really did remind me of decor from the 80s!

I also loved all of her yarns! (I probably love her her fiber too, I just don't know it since I don't spin yet!) And I loved that she has complete jewelry sets, not just coordinating pieces!

I love the Golden Pearls and Rowel necklace! I am also impressed by all of the leatherwork. As far as fiber related items, the purpley yarn is my favorite.
