Keeping Warm with The Craft Shelf

One of the best parts of blogging is networking with other bloggers and small business owners. I’ve always been in awe of how we support each other and do what we can to help promote our blogs and businesses.

David and Timothy Montequin contacted me a while ago to help get the word out about their Etsy shop, The Craft Shelf. Based in Dallas, Texas, these twin brothers create handmade apparel and accessories, as well as items for the home. I was lucky enough to be sent three of their cozy, handmade scarves – my favorite accessory!

I’ve been wearing these scarves nonstop since I received them – they bring a much-needed warmth factor to any outfit, while the fact that they are handmade brings an air of charm and character. These boys are talented and have mad sewing and crocheting skills, and I hope to see their Etsy shop go far!

I’ve partnered with The Craft Shelf to give away a scarf of your choice to two lucky winners! The giveaway runs through Sunday, March 1. Good luck!

Disclaimer: I was sent products from The Craft Shelf in exchange for a review and to host a giveaway. As always, all opinions are my own.

    I love how the blogging community and small businesses work together. It's such a unique relationship! Also, can you puhleese do a hair tutorial on that bun? It's perfection!

    I love that gray scarf!

  6. 2.25.15

    Yes, they are perfect for our Midwest winters – I love them! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. 2.25.15

    That seems to be a popular choice!

  8. 2.25.15

    Good luck!

  9. 2.25.15

    I'm with you! I've been wearing that one nonstop because it's so cozy and keeps me warm!

  10. 2.25.15

    Thanks, Maya! Your feedback and words mean the world to me. 🙂

  11. 2.25.15

    There are many great ones to choose from!

  12. 2.25.15

    Those also are my favorite – the pink one is such a unique fabric and texture. It's very lightweight, so it will be perfect for springtime. Thanks, girl!

  13. 2.25.15

    That's a great pick!

  14. 2.25.15

    Thanks, lady! I can't wait to wear the pink/coral one more into the spring when I hopefully start to get a little sun. I actually thought of you when I saw the plum/burgundy scarf – I know you love that color!

  15. 2.25.15

    I agree with you – it's so cozy!

  16. 2.25.15

    It really is such a unique and special relationship that we all have! You're too sweet about my hair – it wasn't cooperating when we took these photos, so it took me a LONG time to get it to look semi-okay in the front. I did a tutorial a while back on how I do this (I think I called it the Messy Bun Tutorial?), but I think I'm due to update it since my hair is much longer now.

  17. 2.25.15

    That's my favorite, too. Thanks, girlie!

  18. 2.25.15

    Awe, thanks friend! I stuck with the balayage color at my appointment, so I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the dark roots with a platinum blonde bun. But, it seems to work. 🙂

  19. 2.25.15

    They are a great couple kids, I was happy to work with them as they get their business started.

  20. 2.25.15

    Right?! I'm wishing the same thing!

  21. 2.25.15

    Thanks, Stephanie, I agree!

  22. 2.25.15

    I agree – it was a fun collaboration!

  23. 2.25.15

    I'm the exact same way – when all else fails, I just throw on a scarf. It's the easiest way to finish putting an outfit together.

  24. 2.25.15

    Me too!

  25. 2.25.15

    Thanks, girl! The color reminds me that spring hopefully is upon us. 🙂

  26. 2.25.15

    I'm right there with you! I've been wearing the chunky mint blue one with my winter coat because it's so warm – I can use all the extra help I can get at the moment!

  27. 2.25.15

    Right?! I couldn't believe it either!

  28. 2.25.15

    I agree with you!

  29. 2.25.15

    Thanks, lady! I'm looking forward to wearing that pink one more as it warms up.

  30. 2.25.15

    Thanks, girl – the guys behind the shop are really talented!

  31. 2.25.15

    Thank you! The mint blue one is my favorite, too!

  32. 2.25.15

    LOVE these scarves. They seem perfect for Chicago winters! Thanks for sharing! xo

    I know you love a good scarf, and these are so cute! How fun that these are being created by twin brothers!

  48. 2.24.15

    I 100% agree with what Katie said!! I love the last one, I would be wearing that all of the time. Sometimes when I can't decide on a necklace, I just put on a scarf. We also always have a ton of cute scarves where I work. 🙂 Hope that you are having a good day so far!

    Love that this was started by two men! These scarves look PERFECT for the freezing temperatures we have been experiencing lately. And I love that coral one as a reminder that spring is (hopefully) on the way!
