THAT day...

So, today was Valentine's day, I don't really DO Valentine's day. It tends to be to me what Friday the 13th is to some people, so I try to avoid remembering that it's coming and am quite content when it's over with and the 15th comes along (which for those of us in NY, looks like is going to be another day of snow!) I, however, was pleasantly surprised with how I was able to spend my dreaded "V-day". My lovely sister came for a sleepover (I can still say sleepover, she's 8), I made chocolate covered strawberries w/ some dark organic choc. chips from the nature food store and dyed yarn. I was also given this:

A really pretty picture that I have been wanting for some time from a small chocolate and gift shop in the village nearby. I thought it would be perfect for my daughter's room but now that it has been given to me as a gift it may go somewhere else. There is a lot of transition in my life right now so it may just stay safely wrapped for a bit. But isn't it lovely?

Oh, and speaking of yarn, I did post some new yarns in the shop and have many more to put up tomorrow night and Tuesday (bring it on snow!).
Also, if you haven't yet, remember to join the fan page on Facebook, link is here. I thank you kindly! :)
Hope that your Valentine's Day was pleasant and full of things to make you smile!

It's been awhile...

Yes, I know I won't be winning any awards for blogs anytime soon! I could go into a whole long thing about what's been going on but let's face it, if you made it here it's probably because you want to see yarn, or knitting, or some other fun thing. For drama, we watch the news! So, I'll just say that I'm back and yes, it's been awhile. My issue with blogging is, as it's always been, how personal should I go? I am a person who has a lot to say (and if you know me in person, you're saying "and then some!") but I started this to be about my business so we'll see how it goes. My mother tells me I have the most boring blog on the internet, she's probably right.....let's see what we can do about that! Til next time, this'll get you updated since last time:

Only The Best of Etsy

If you haven't checked out the site Only the Best of Etsy, you should. It's a cute site where new, unique items are shown. They also have a box for sale (I think it's monthly) based on items that have been featured and she does frequent giveaways, so be sure to check it out.
I ordered myself a OBOE box last month and have been meaning to post about it so here you have it:

That is the lovely box I received and here is a nice shot of all the goodies:

There was an adorable toy wooden bunny:

Really cute donut earrings:

Both of those have already been claimed by my daughter! Also, in there was a firefly pin made from an old dictionary page, some cute pink hairclips, a lego heartshaped keychain, some hand-dipped candies, a chocolate, a small coin purse made from repurposed fabric, some gluten free play dough, and (my favorite) a bag full of 10 little soap samples. Some of the sellers also included coupons for future purchases. The box was reasonably priced and filled with some fun things. I may even participate in the future now that things are getting back on track!

Be sure to check it out!
