New Payment Methods!

Hey everyone,

I wanted to let you all know about the new payment options. In addition to being able to pay with PayPal, you can now pay with directly with your credit card. Before if someone wanted to pay with a credit card I would have to send them an invoice through PayPal. This can still be an option, if needed, but this new Etsy tool should really come in handy!

Yay for having more ways to pay! 

Also, remember that there's a fall sale going on! Coupon code 30FALL12 gives you 30% off. Coupon code 20FALL12 gives you 20% off!

My Rainbow Beanies Have Gone International!

Hey Everybody!

I sold another rainbow beanie yesterday and shipped it out this morning! It's on it's way to Istanbul, Turkey! How cool is that?!?! :)

I almost felt the need to burst out in song, but I let the Bunhead peeps do it for me! They dance better than I do!

Only two rainbow beanies left! I guess I'll have to be making some more!

Reminder that there's a sale going on! 20% off with the coupon 20FALL12!

Reduced Prices on Rainbow Beanies!

Hi everybody!

I wanted to let people know that I've reduced the price of the rainbow beanies to $12! Yay!

There are currently two options for rainbow beanies:


If you're wondering what the difference is, the first rainbow beanie only has one row of purple, so it doesn't come down as far on the head of whoever is wearing it.

Also, don't forget about the fall sale! Use the coupon code 20FALL12 to get 20% off your order.



If you live in (or frequent) Lexington or Berea, KY send me a note and we can talk about eliminating shipping charges!

New Hats Available!

Hey All,

I just posted some new beanies! They're both very pretty! The magenta is my absolute favorite item in my shop right now. It's very soft and it's a beautiful color! I'm thinking about making one for myself!

The green one is very pretty too and would be great for fall! It's a lighter green than the forest green beanie I posted a few weeks ago.

Also, don't forget about the 20% off fall sale that's happening! Use the coupon code 20FALL12.

Fall Sale & New Merch Coming Soon!

Just wanted to let peeps know that there will be a fall sale coming soon, as well as new merchandise. I'm still finishing up a hefty custom order, but once that's finished I'll be on to other projects!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Custom Orders

Hello People!

In case anyone was wondering, I do custom orders as well! In fact, right now I'm making a Tom Baker era Doctor Who scarf! Today is day 1 on the making of that scarf. With the length of this replica, it's gonna take a lot of yarn! The original was 11 feet. That's CRAZY! I don't know if I'll get it to 11 feet, but it will be pretty darn close! 

Anyway, if anybody out there is dreaming up scarves, hats, or other random knitted or crocheted stuff, but don't want to take the time and effort to make it themselves, let me know and we'll work out a price and time frame. 

I've always wanted to make a Harry Potter scarf. Or that gorgeous scarf that Jason Mraz was wearing in the Tonight, Not Again DVD. :)

If you're interested in a custom order you may contact me on my Etsy shop. There's a link to the left that says, "Request Custom Item". You may also leave a comment on this blog or send me a tweet. There's also the Berry Originals Facebook page, which would also be a great option for custom orders!

My First Sale and More!!!!!!

Hey People!

Guess What!!!!!

I made my first sale on Etsy!!!! YAY!!! I'm very excited! I already shipped it out and it's off to it's new home! Also, it was a rainbow beanie, which means that 20% of the proceeds will be going to Sayre's GSA! Double YAY!!!

In other news, I've listed the forest green beanie:

I had trouble capturing it's true color in the photos. I would say that it's most like the first picture, but it does seem just a little bit deeper and perhaps brighter. Overall it's more green than it looks in the pictures! It is very pretty!

Thanks so much for checking in. Come back soon!

New Items Coming Soon!

Hey Ya'll,

Just a heads up that I'll be adding more items soon! There's at least one more hat coming, a dark forest green beanie.

I'm open to suggests for other items to make and sell, as well. Just drop me a note via comment, email, or on Etsy. I can do more rainbow stuff, or less rainbow stuff, whatever you all want to see more of!

I'll have to purchase some more yarn soon, so if there are particular color's you'd like to see let me know!

I'll likely post the new beanie tomorrow!

Stay tuned for more info.

Rainbow Scarves Special Announcement!

Hey everybody!

I've been making these rainbow scarves for about a year now. I started making them for friends and family and they seem to be a big hit. As you probably know, the rainbow is a symbol for the LGBTQ community. Since I'm a big supporter of all things LOVE, I'll be giving a portion of the proceeds to the Sayre School Gay-Straight Alliance in Lexington, Kentucky. I went to middle school and high school at Sayre and it's a great place and their GSA does some really wonderful things.

Here's a picture of my brother wearing his rainbow scarf:

And in case you wanted to see more scarves:

Also, if you'd like to support the GSA, but would like a different product from my shop, just let me know and I'll give a portion of that sale too!

Here are the currently available rainbow scarves:

And everything else:

Thanks for checking in!

Hey peeps!

There's officially a hat listed in my Etsy shop. Don't worry, this will not be the only hat. I plan to make more! The first hat took me a couple of hours to make-- so no need to fight over the hats-- more will be available soon! When I was taking pictures for the listing, I took this picture of myself wearing the hat:
I'm not sure what it is about this picture that I find interesting; perhaps the whimsical curl in my hair or the curiosity in my eyes, or maybe just the fabulous hat that I'm hearing, but there was something about this photo that I found appealing. 

Anyway, check out the cool purple and green hat I just made and listed:

Stay tuned for more items and thanks for checking in!

New Items Available

Hey folks!

I just posted some more items in my Etsy shop. One new scarf and two new and incredibly comfortable ear warmers!

In my very humble opinion, I think the ear warmer from the last link is the most comfortable thing that I've ever had on my head! It's great! I plan on making more of them.

This scarf is also wonderfully comfy! It's also very pretty. It took me about 20 hours (give or take) to make it. 

For more items check out my full shop:

More coming soon!
