no rest

You'd think, with all the products I got ready for the local shop opening, I'd be able to take some time off this week. I really intended to try. But already I can see it's not going to happen. I spent most of yesterday weeding the vegetable garden - amazing what a week of rain can do - and picked the last of the strawberries. Today I did laundry and mowed the lawn. And worked on the sachet stacks I started last week. I photographed products and made a new web page for vintage button jewelry (coming soon - still need to link the page to the rest of the website). I need to restock supplies since I'm out of almost everything and also source supplies for the embroidery class I'll be teaching at Green Being next month. I'm providing the materials needed for the class so I'm busy tracking down the best prices, mostly online but A.C.Moore has DMC floss on sale this week!

This coming Saturday is my annual trek to Shupp's Grove for their textiles-linen-button theme weekend (I always find great stuff) and I'm going to drop off a bunch of things to Hello Bluebird on the way home. And hopefully time it right for lunch at the french restaurant across the street. So, if you've visited Hello Bluebird lately and didn't find covered notebooks, mini wallets, or sachet stacks, don't despair. They're on the way!


new shop opening

I've been so busy with this co-op shop that I'm joining hence the lack of blogging lately. I met the owner at the craft show I did at Keystone College in April and she asked me to join. And she found a space and got it all together (well, almost ... we're still getting set up). I'll be selling almost my full line of products and some vintage things, too.

The grand opening is this coming Saturday from 10-4. Hope some of you can stop by to say hello and check out the cool things for sale. Since this is a co-op I'll also be working a few hours  a week, too. Good experience for the day I open my own shop and I'm going to do it, I swear.

Cloe & Company, 410 S. State Street, Clarks Summit, PA 18411
