New Items?

My Etsy shop has been in a sad state lately. I've been letting it go pretty badly since the semester started, so it's my goal to beef it up again this week. I've also been toying with the idea of starting a second shop for my jewelry, so the yarn and the jewelry are separated, but I'm not sure yet.
As if that's not enough to think about, I'm also starting some wood-burnings for fun. Who knows were that is going to go- hah- maybe I need to start doing some craft fairs....
Here is one of them, and I've got six more ready to be drawn on. Also, I went to the thrift store a couple of days ago and hit the jackpot. I got all this for $10!I got:
- 2 new scarves from Target
- A jacket and a tank top from Target
- A pretty glittery headband
- A new long-sleeve shirt and
sweater from Old Navy
In the fiber realm, I've spun three new yarns this week, and this is my favorite. It is super bumpy and bulky merino plied with a orange wool yarn. It is super squishy!
I've also started brainstorming for my EcoArt Project, and I'm really excited to get started on it. I'm going back and forth between doing a project involving handmade recycled clothing, or handmade recycled bags. Either way, I'll be trying to take a positive angle on consumption, and the encouragement of smart consumption.
But more on that when I'm further along with the project. :)

I love good thriftstore finds! You never know what cool things they have until you go there. I found some great books & a neato teapot there before.

Sweet hat in the post below. It looks really squishy & warm. :)
