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.

  11. There are many great ones to choose from!

  12. 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. That's a great pick!

  14. 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. I agree with you – it's so cozy!

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

  18. 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. 🙂

    Posted 2.25.15 Reply
  22. I agree – it was a fun collaboration!

    Posted 2.25.15 Reply
  23. 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.

    Posted 2.25.15 Reply
  24. Me too!

    Posted 2.25.15 Reply
  25. Thanks, girl! The color reminds me that spring hopefully is upon us. 🙂

  26. 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!

  48. 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!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
