Stash Your Stash - The Twinery Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Today is a fun blog hop with some of The Twinery designers as we show you how we store our twine!  
I store my twine in this Kallax shelving unit from Ikea and I just adore it.  The drawers also came from Ikea and they are huge - perfect for storing all types of things.  You can see by the labels that this one has my printing supplies in one drawer (for my Selphy and my regular printer), my glitter and Stickles in another, some new paper collections in the third and my Twinery twine in the last one.  
It really is so perfect to store, deep enough to dig around in and close to the ground because it is heavy!
I have larger sizes of Kallax in the closet of my craft room and they hold so much stuff!  I really can't say enough good things about these storage cubes and the little drawers I got for them.

Like I always say, it's not really a hop unless there's a prize and we've got several to give away today!  Each designer participating in the hop today will be giving away a Striped Twine Sampler ($18 value).  To enter, hoppers need to comment on each post along the hop and, since each designer is giving away a Striped Twine Sampler, each post commented on is another chance to win!  Comments will close at midnight (EST) on Tuesday, November 3rd and winners will be posted on The Twinery blog on Thursday, November 5th.

Also, just for the hop today, there is a special 25% off discount on any order!  Fabulous!  Simply use the code STASH25 through 11/6.

In closing, I thought I'd share the reason you don't see me out in craft land regularly any more (though I really am trying to remedy that!) - baby Amelia!  I don't think I've shared a photo in a long time and she sure isn't a baby any more!  She turned 2 in September and started preschool.  Here she is trying her Halloween costume on... I know I'm biased but I think she's darn cute!  

Here are all of the designers participating today.  I think you'll enjoy all of the storage ideas they'll be sharing!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Summer Fun with The Twinery!

Hello friends and welcome to the Caribbean Twine blog hop with The Twinery!  If you've arrived here from Anita's blog, you're in the right spot.  If not, head over to The Twinery blog to get started!Today we're spotlighting the cool hue of Caribbean waters with both solid and striped twine!  Aren't these colors gorgeous?!  I remember my beach vacations when I think of waters in these colors!   

I decided to make a couple of gift tags for my projects.  I just love tags, particularly "any occasion" tags as they jazz up so many types of gifts.  For my first tag, I started off with a large format tag, approximately 6x3", layered some pool patterned paper, some sequin "waves" and some fun embellishments.  I finished the tag off with a tassel of solid Caribbean twine.
My second project is a smaller-scale tag, approximately 4.5x2" and features some chipboard kites floating along on twine tails.  The tag is finished with a tassel of striped Caribbean twine.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  Off you go to Tobi's blog for more Caribbean twine goodness!

Hello Again!

Hello, friends!  I know it has been a long time since my last post and I am sorry for that!  Other than saying life really changed after I had Amelia, I don't have a lot of reasons.  Before I get chatting, I wanted to let you know that The Twinery DT is getting underway again for 2015 after a bit of a hiatus, and I'm up on the blog today.  Check it out!

As for me, Amelia turned 20 months yesterday and I can hardly believe it!  She's a happy, vibrant, toddler who loves to read, to "wah hah" (wash hands), and her little granola bars - "mo cookie peas mommy."  It is definitely difficult to work full time, spend enough time with A, and have time for things I like/want to do during the week and that is why you haven't seen much of me crafting lately.  It really has dropped to the "when I have time" and I really just haven't found much.  In addition to all of that, I was promoted at work last fall and am managing a team which has required some long days.  No excuses, just my new reality.

Anyway, I hope you have a great day and I really do hope I'll see you out here again in the coming days!  Oh, before I go...  here's a photo of Amelia in her Easter finery...
