Black Friday Sale, Going on Now at Kari Goodwin Quilts

It is a little funny for me to promote a Black Friday Sale at my shop because I do not EVER get out and shop on Black Friday.  I am an avid avoider of crowds if at all possible, but guess what!?  You do not have to go through any crowds to get to my Black Friday Sale unless your kids are playing Minecraft (like mine have been this morning) on your computer, then you might have to wait in line a little, but HEY!  It’s a pretty day outside, so kick them off the games and do some early shopping with a Small Business before the madness starts to hit after Thanksgiving.  I am offering Free Shipping on all domestic orders, (including APO addresses too!) now through Sunday, November 27th.  The coupon will end Sunday at midnight, and a new Cyber Monday Sale will activate, so check back with me here, or on Instagram to see what special offers will be coming your way next week!  Until then, my friends, have fun and rock on.   **Hint, Hint, Quilts are heavy, pillows are bulky, and buying lots of things at once costs SO much to ship!!  You could save $20, $30, $40 in shipping!  Just saying…**  Head over to my Etsy shop, Kari Goodwin Quilts by clicking the picture below!  Happy Shopping!  Oh, I guess you might want the coupon code?  I got so excited, I almost forgot.  It is BLACKFRIDAY2016 .

Featured Item of the Day! Forest Themed Items

I wanted to do  special compilation of a few items from my shop that all coordinate together in a forest or woodland themed room.  All the items are made using only 100% organic cotton and use fabrics from my Spoonflower designs.  The blankets and quilts can be made larger for customers who request it, and are already available in smallish sizes for smallish little people.  The best way to contact me is through my Etsy shop here.  So let’s take a look at some of these forest-themed items!

Featured Item of the Day – Organic Cotton Knit Blankets

It’s Monday, so that means it’s time for sharing a new product for the week!  This makes two weeks in a row that I have actually nailed this little goal of mine, which actually makes this THE most “pulled together” time of my entire life.  No kidding.  I thrive off order and chaos in equal measure, and see the balancing of entropies as the ultimate “LEVELING UP” of life.  DSC_0388To have a little chaos, a little order, and a constant flowing dance between the two.  Anyway, I distract myself.  The featured item of the day is a simple product, but a brand new one for Kari Goodwin Quilts.  These organic cotton knit blankets are great for a lot of reasons.  Here are a few:

  1. Four different sizes available!  From newborn baby to kid off to college with their first dorm room, there is a size for everyone.  The material is fairly stretchy and lightweight, and would make a good swaddling blanket.  In the larger sizes, the material is heavyweight enough to make a good throw style blanket.
  2. Made from the only material I use, GOTS certified organic cotton.
  3. These are printed in the USA with my own exclusive designs, made by me and my kids, which my favorite activity with my kids, so the purchase of this item actually encourages and supports art in my household! (not kidding.)
  4. With this product I strived to bring the best materials for the LEAST about of cost to you.  As such, these blankets are simply serged around the edges, which is great for the stretchy material, and they go together very quickly.  DSC_0163 (1)This allows me to pass on the savings to you, while still offering a great product, full of creativity and uniqueness.

That is all, back to work for me!   Happy Monday Ya’ll!  Here are links to my Etsy shop karigoodwinquilts.etsy.com and my website karigoodwinquilts.com .   Be on the lookout for these new items to hit the shops soon! DSC_0324 (3)

We are Back!

If you had come to Goodwin’s Custom Crafts in the last couple weeks, looking for some updates or galleries, looking to connect or get in touch, you would have been very disappointed to find that we were not here!!  Between Bluehost miscommunication and the kids going back to school, renewing my web hosting was the last thing on my mind.  For a few days I contemplated letting the website go, but as with most things, the decision to continue with it came down to commitment. DSC_0882  Or as is sometimes the case, a lack thereof.  This website…is it for blogging?  Sharing galleries?  Linking customers who come looking for one thing to the possibility of sharing new products with them?  Is it simply an effort to validate my “brand” (whatever that really means I am not sure I have one!!) or what?  The answer came eventually to me, in a sort of small sadness that a connection had been lost.  Whoever you are and where ever you are, I have a desire to connect with you.  Here…Instagram…real life…And this is one way that I feel comfortable doing that.  An invisible audience that can be, at least in my imagination, as kind and receptive as any loving audience could be!  And I missed you.  Whoever you are and where ever you come from, I confess I did.  I am going to offer a weekly COUPON special to all of my blog subscribers, starting with free shipping on ALL orders from Kari Goodwin Quilts (formerly the quilt and baby shop of Goodwin’s Custom Crafts…But that is a blog post for another day.)  Enter the coupon code FREESHIPPING during checkout at Kari Goodwin Quilts or Folks Linen.  No minimum or maximum purchase rules, just simple and free shipping.  Check back next week to see what the new coupon code might be and until then, happy shopping!  ALSO…IF YOU WANTED TO CHECK OUT MY BRAND SPANKING NEW WEBSITE CALLED www.karigoodwinquilts.com YOU CAN USE THE COUPON CODE THERE TOO!  (Can you tell I’m excited?!)  Thanks and love ya’ll!
