Sponsor Love + Giveaway – Calikatrina

{shop} {blog} {twitter}

You’ve seen the Calikatrina bows on my little dude a whole bunch of times!  And now I’d like to formally introduce you to the sweetheart and mama of 2 behind the creator of these lovelies of those fine bows, Katrina!  By the way, the bows can totally be worn as a headband for baby girls or women, tied around a messy bun, or as a bowtie for boys!!  Not only does Katrina make bows, but she makes buggs too… what’s that you ask, they are little bootie uggs for babies.  Is that darling or what?  Even in the warm months the buggs are great as baby feet tend to get cold really easily.  So read on to get to know a little bit more about Katrina and enter a giveaway to win some bows or buggs! 


1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you started your shop?
Hello! I’m Katrina, the busy mama behind the calikatrina shop, blog, twitter, instagram… you know, all that fun stuff! I’ve been a crocheter for 10 years, a blogger for 4 years, a mama for 3 years, and an etsy shop owner since last year! After sharing my crochet projects on the blog for some time, I was constantly being encouraged to open shop. So in December 2011, I got brave and posted my first listings! And what a wonderful, exciting experience it’s been!

2) What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging is getting to share my boys! Jeff and I have been married for 7 years and we have two boys, Ewan is 3 years old and Graham is 1. I also adore all the friendship I’ve made through blogging, such a sweet community it is!

3) What are you looking forward to doing this Spring?
Spring brings warmth and fruit! Looking forward to days at Disneyland and as it gets really warm, the beach! And as a family, we love to u-pick berries… strawberry fields are open now, and blueberries are coming soon!

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I’m not much of an ice cream girl, but I DO love frozen yogurt. Specifically Golden Spoon chocolate with rainbow sprinkles. 🙂


Winner’s choice of one of the following two packages in any colors you want:

Package A: 1 pair of BUGGS and 4 BOWS


Package B: 12 BOWS

    I am in my third trimester with our first baby. We are waiting to find out the gender. In the meantime I’ve been adding different baby items to my wishlist for baby showers and such. Katrina’s “buggs-in-aqua-crochet-baby-uggs-booties” buggs are my favorite. I also love the gray ones. Hoping to snag a pair soon if I don’t win contest or if no one buys them for us!
