Very cute - I like the names on each. I just use our generic NY Jets ones and Fine Living Network giveaway ones.

They were fun to design (someone else made them but I picked out the fonts, colors - all the easy stuff. LOL!) I meet my girlfriends from NY in Aruba every year and we're always bringing little gifts of some sort....they loved them! People kept asking us where we bought them at. LOL!

I like the koozies or huggies like I like to call them.

I never ever use them, my beer never has a chance to get warm.:D

The pic you posted above reminds me of the Corona commercial on tv, just need the limes.

~Amy~, you've got to hook everyone up with this person...she/he could start a business...

She already has her own website:
http://lilylaneembroidery.com/

She's a stay-at-home mom who lives in Hibbing, MN and does these out of her home. I was soooo happy with how they turned out! I may do a few for Christmas presents, too.

We used to do limes with our Brights...now we only use limes about every other Bright or so (too much acid for our stomachs now. :o )

I think it took her about one week to finish them....and then shipping adds extra time but you can pay extra for priority shipping. If you ordered them today or tomorrow, you might have them in time. When you send in the order, just ask her if you could receive them by a certain date (and that you'll pay extra for shipping if you need to/want to.)

I ordered 4 of them....then loved them so much I ordered 2 more for a couple of other friends and paid extra for shipping since we were getting close to our departure date (I told her when I needed them by.) But it might depend on how busy she is, too.

~Amy~, here's a part time job for you...sell them for her OR sell them to aruba.com and we could buy at the ATA headquaters...they are so cool ! cindy

These are great......I think I will order some and put them in the welcome bags I plan to make. Will the one you got fit on a water bottle also?....we have a few non drinkers but I would not want to leave them out.

They have different sizes available - for beer cans, beer bottles, and water bottles. Just make sure you pick the size you want when you're ordering.

Hi Dolores - glad to hear that you're happy with them! Bobbi Jo does a great job (and she's quick, too!) I bet everyone will love their koozie gifts in Aruba! :)

Not sure if it was here or not, but saw someone post about a company that makes personalized can coozies. Meant to write it down, but of course did not. Does this sound familiar to anyone?:D

I'm sure everyone will love them! And I love giving business to small, local businesses, too, so it's a win-win for everyone! :)

They were so fast to respond. Can't wait to see them. It is nice to help smaller business owners. Like you said Amy, win-win for all.

I don't know Bobbi Jo personally (the woman who makes them) but in the few emails I've had with her she seems very nice (and she does great work!) I'm happy to be sending "Aruba business" her way! :D

And let me add to Amy's response on the great job that Bobbi Jo does. I ordered 24 koozies for my group for next June and they are just wonderful. The quality is exceptional. The koozies are a sea blue color with lime green writing with a green/brown palm tree. Chose those colors since they are the colors of the Playa Linda Timeshare towels. Each one has Aruba, 2010 under Aruba, then a palm tree and a name. They came out just wonderful and am so anxious to hand them out next year. Each koozie is wrapped in cellophane and includes Bobbi Jo's card with her web site.

You sound like me...when I got mine I could NOT WAIT to give them to my friends because I was so excited! And I liked that they kind of came "wrapped" already in the cellophane so I didn't have to do any of my own gift wrapping. :D

The ones you made sound pretty! I had a hard time picking colors and fonts since my artistic ability is next to none and I tend to overanalyze. :o

I actually gave several to my daughter that I had made for her family and friends that will also join us next year. I will be there for 3 weeks and am trying to "pawn" off some stuff for her to take when she comes down the second week with my son and other grandson. And she was so excited and hid them immediately so her boys would not see them until next June. And I'm sure my New Jersey friends will be excited to receive them next year and will want to order some. I was so glad that Bobbi Jo included her business card; good PR. Once I saw the colors I really focussed on the colors to coordinate with the towels at Playa Linda since that is where all of us will be staying. And of course Bobbi Jo helped me a lot, sending me samples of several colors for me to select.
