Follow Friday: Whistle & Ivy


It’s a New Year and a new Tip Junkie!  So we’re rolling out some new themes to better promote creative women.  It’s Friday which means it’s time to Follow Friday.   {TGIF!}

What is Follow Friday?  

Every Friday here on Tip Junkie it’s my pleasure to introduce to you a Tip Junkie Craft Room which is loaded up with some great tutorials, tips, files, gifts, recipes, and fabulous ideas you’ll want to know about and….follow, of course.  {{knuckle bumps}}

It’s my way to say “thank you” to those of you who are taking the time to share your talent, teach us, and “make new friends“.  

Follow a Craft Room

If you are logged into your craft room, simply click the “follow” button next to their profile picture. You are now their “Fan” and I bet they’ll “Friend” you back.  {{wink}}


Tip:  To clarify in the Tip Junkie membership profiles, Fans are people who are following YOU.  Friends are those you are following.

Follow Friday

This weeks Follow Friday Feature is Whistle & Ivy.  One of my favorite things about Bethany Dearden’s craft room is that she makes the cutest items for children, ever.  Her quiet books are phenomenal and her crocheted shoes are to die for.

When Bethany Dearden of Whistle & Ivy  isn’t uploading her crafting tutorials to her Tip Junkie craft room you can find her at her fabulous website Whistle & Ivy which features patterns, projects, recipes and tips.  You’ll definitely want to take some time to look around!

Bitty Bow baby shoes

It was super difficult to chose my favorite project she added to her craft room, but because I just love little girl things, I chose … {drum roll, please}…

Bitty Bow Baby Sandals {free crochet pattern} ~ Make these sweet little bow sandals for fun in the sun with your little baby or a little baby you just adore!  {{wink}}

    So cute for a baby that doesn’t walk yet. Or if they are in the house a lot in the summer. Just adorable.
