WHOO-HOO!!! A benchmark and a giveaway!!!

CutieFruity had a kick-butt weekend and pushed over the 500 sales mark. I want to do the happy dance, but that's not a very safe thing to do with a pair of scissors in your hand. My family might as well start calling me Edwarda Scissorhands since I seem to ALWAYS have my favorite tool in my hand or very close by. My daughter has taken after me, though, with her love of scissors, and destroyed the shower curtain yesterday. BOOOOO.
I finally applied for my business license the other day and I feel so official now! To celebrate all the success my awesome customers and family have help me achieve in my 7 months on Etsy, I'm having another giveaway!!! You can enter to win $10 and free shipping for your choice of CutieFruity. You know the drill: Go to my shop, CutieFruity, have a look around, and then come back her and leave a comment on your favorite item. I'd also like to hear what else you'd like to see my mom and I create. My customers come up with the best ideas! So hop to it, you only have until the 15th of January to qualify!
Update! This giveaway has been featured on CafeMom and Etsy Giveaways!

I love my belly band. It is wonderful. Oh wait, I gave it too a friend, I need a new one!

Honestly I would have to say that right now my first choice in your shop would be you $10 grab bag bibs of 3! That is a rockin price for three cute homemade bibs!

Hey cousin Paula. I really like your Mei Tai carrier. That seems like a good thing for new mommies.

Very cute. Mandi

Melissa said...

That's awesome!! Congrats!

Found you through CafeMom and I am thrilled I did! You are SO creative. I LOVE the belly bands and now I've spotted the camisole style you have!!! I wish they had been around for me but now that my daughter is expecting a little bundle, these will save her (and me?) a LOT of money on new clothes!!! And she might actually LIKE them!! GREAT job! Now, about the crayon apron: I have a 20 month old grandson and this is JUST his style. Time to go shopping! Thanks so much for sharing your projects!

Your bibs are certainly cute, but I'd get great use out of a belly band! rebolsen at gmail dot com

Gosh, it's tough! The "When I Grow Up" bibs are so adorable. I don't know which one I like best! Maybe the doctor or the tuxedo one.
You have SO many colors, and awesome ones, in your belly bands too.

I really like the Mei Tai carrier. I would love to give one to my friend. Thanks!

Mrs. Haid said...

I love the belly bands in the multi pack. I like the new "secret stash" fabrics the very best.

Mrs. Haid said...

I'd like to see more belly bands in the fabric that is similar to the "disco hall" fabric. I found that it washes better and retains its shape better. I don't know what type of fabric it is, but I want to order more in the same fabric!

aidan2905 said...

I just found this through cafemom and am so excited I did!!! I just found out that I am pregnant and will back for a belly band in a few months...But ofcourse who doesnt love a freebie!!!!

Reesa said...

I like the belly bands the best because they look nice and are practical. I would like to give them to my daughter-in-law when she is pregnant again...

I love the Maternity Belly Band - Turquoise and Olive Swirl, although the Doctor bib is also great!

Kelly said...

Hands down, because I have been using them every day now for several months, my favorite item is the belly bands. I truly use them every day. I love the support that maternity pants just don't give! I am due in 6 weeks, I wonder if I'll still be using them after delivery. I imagine so for a while. Thanks Cutie fruity!

Sanders said...

I came her because of the belly bands and I would have to say that the camisole bands are my favorite -- super cute and so helpful! I also love the bibs. I just kept browsing around your sight. You have so many amazing ideas!

Magpie said...

I like your belly bands! In fact I'm going to order some today. I'm bustin' outta my pants, but not ready for maternity pants yet! :)

missypotthast said...

I love the pink and gold circles belly band. I just got mine and love it!! I am already looking for some new colors. I am wishing you made a sleep nursing bra. The ones I am finding are not cute!!
