LoloINK: Winter Scarf Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 203 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Amber!

Here is a fantastic Etsy shop that I have had the pleasure of working with again. Read more about them:

Welcome to loloINK. Thanks for taking some time to shop.

The loloINK etsy site is an offshoot of my larger website (www.loloink.com) which features custom illustrations, cards, prints, t-shirts, and books. I have published two children's books and one "memoir." The site is named after my Grandma Lolo and the work here is created by me, Kelly Frederick Mizer.

My favorite things to draw are lemons, cakes, table settings, birds, dogs, and pie (not necessarily in that order). Though I also love to do custom work, especially illustrations about your family stories.

If you are interested in buying (or browsing) the featured children's books, go to www.loloink.com. If you want to receive a 10% discount this month, shop for the books at lulu.com/kmizer and type in the discount code LULUBOOK (good until September 30). You will also be able to preview a few pages at Lulu.

Wooden Angel Tag for Christmas

New line of holiday gift tags are now available. This one was custom made for Luminary Emporium (Louisville, CO). Tags vary in price and size. This line is created on wood with graphite pencil and varnish. Ribbons vary, but most are velvet.

By November, matching drawings on wood will be available.

loloINK 2010 Winter Scarf Collection

loloINK.com was named after my Grandma Lois. When I was very little, she worked in the lamp department at Gimbels. I would call her up at work and tell her about current news: a lost tooth, a new book, anything.

After a few years, she was transferred to the coat department and though the store changed owners over the years (Marshall Fields, Yonkers, Macy’s) she stayed in the coat department full time until her mid-eighties.

The 2009-10 collection of loloINK scarves is inspired by her work in that department. I remember walking through rows and rows of charcoal and camel colored wool coats, or playing hide and seek in her front hall closet, which was filled with two things: coats and poker chips.

The images are inspired by Lolo memories: birds, pies, grapes from her vine, apple branches, houses in the shape of her simple ranch home on 72nd Street, love letters, nighties, airplane rides, and clouds. Each scarf is one-of-a-kind and oh-so-cozy.

These are made to order and custom designed. You pick the imagery and the scarf will be mailed to you within one week of your order. You may also specify whether you would like a short or long scarf (want it for a child, adult . . . wear it with cardigan or coat?). Scarves are made out of pre-washed, pre-shrunk wool felt. It is safe to every once in awhile throw them in the washing machine. Details are made out of scrap fabric, and embroidery thread.

loloINK would like to offer one lucky reader a charcoal grey felt scarf. The winner will get to choose their style!

  80. I couldn't see the scarves too well, but a good idea for a scarf are one red, orange, and yellow maple leaves stitched on with green yellow thread. Another possible design is a plaid-like edging with varying stripes of violet and purple.
