Taking a long break

It's been a long time since I've posted here.  I closed my shop last summer when my family and I were preparing to move from Hawaii to Washington State.  I had initially planned to reopen my Etsy shop before the Christmas shopping season, but just never got around to it.  We've been so busy starting our new life here in the Pacific Northwest and I just haven't found the time for crafting.  I may still open my shop for a short time to try to sell some extra crafting supplies and bakers twine.  I'll post here if I do.

For now however, I'm starting something new that really ties into the life we are creating in our new home.  I created a new blog quite a while ago and am just now getting it going.  It's still a little bare, but check it out when you get a chance.  I'll be sharing photos from our new beginnings here on our little homestead, along with recipes, natural cleaning solutions and decorating ideas using things found in nature.

Here is the new blog: nurturingasimplelife

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Any orders placed over the weekend before will be mailed on Tuesday, June 25th.  I hope to reopen sometime in September, although it may only be through the end of the year.  
I'm still deciding which direction I'd like to take my shop next year.

Muslin Pouch Advent Calendar

Pictured above is my muslin pouch advent calendar hanging 
in my dining room last Christmas.

I am working very hard to make pouches to list in my shop for this very purpose!
 I have one set complete and several more in process.  I'm hoping to have them
completed in the next day or so.  Once they're finished and I have a chance to
take photos, I'll be listing them in my shop.  Please note that the pouches I list
in my shop will not have the numbers stamped on them.  This will be a DIY sort of thing
if you wish to use them as an advent calendar.  It also offers flexibility if you would
like to use them as a 12 days of Christmas set for 2 children.  Or if you would
just like little muslin pouches for gift wrapping small trinkets.

Please check back soon as I am only making a few sets of pouches to list for sale!

A bakers twine update

Still working on clearing out my supply closet!

I have these two sets of bakers twine in Autumn colors.
They're perfect for adding a finishing touch to your Fall & Thanksgiving cards, invites,
scrapbook pages, garlands and other crafts.  There are 20 yards of each color wrapped
on vintage thread spools.
They are each packaged in a little black & white ticking striped
pouch, handmade by myself.  You can find the twine sets {here}

I have reduced the prices of my 50 & 75 yard spools of bakers twine to help you
stock up for your Autumn, Christmas & Winter crafts I'm sure you're busy planning
& working on.  Once the 50 yard spools are gone, I won't be carrying them in my shop,
however I'll still take custom requests if anyone would like that amount.  I have a mix
of both vintage & new thread spools for the 50 & 75 yard lengths.  Each listing will
indicate the type of spool you will receive.  You can find the 50 yard spools {here}
And the 75 yard spools {here}

The set of 10 ply bakers twine is also still on sale until October 31st.  You will receive 20 yards
of each of the 7 colors shown below.  You can find the set {here}

And last but certainly not least.........the 2 large cones of twine are still available.
The brown twine is 3 ply and the green is 4 ply.  They are both perfect for
Fall & Christmas crafts!  You can find them {here}

I am also adding more destash / vintage supply items.  You can find those treasures {here}
Thanks for looking.  Hope you're enjoying crafting for the upcoming holidays!
