Since I've been living here in Nova Scotia, I've been spending a lot more time exploring my creative side. I've been doing lots of work on the farm and trying to fix up the house, but I can't do that all the time. Since I'm not working in a corporate setting any more, I set my own hours and goals. It's good in some ways, and pretty tough in other ways. I sure do miss the comfort of a regular pay cheque! (Yes, in Canada it's a cheque, in the USA it's a check. Go figure!)
Anyway, it's time for a wee bit of self promotion on this blog, so here we go....a showcase of a few of my creative efforts from the past couple of months.
All the following can be seen and purchased right HERE in my Etsy "Scotia Spinner" shop! Handmade beats mass-produced any day, if you ask me! Take a look at some of the other wonderful sellers on Etsy too!
First, of course, handspun yarns, and a rainbow of hand-dyed rovings - mostly Coopworth and Corriedale fibre.
Not a spinner or a knitter? How about some felt ornaments for your Yule or Christmas tree? Or a soft felted pouch for a special gift to be tucked inside?
And if you're not into fibre arts, there's always the beadwork! Lately I've been on another bracelet kick, but there are earrings too!
I do take custom orders for beadwork, felted chicken ornaments, handspun yarns, or other fibre art creations, so let me know if you want something special! Happy shopping!
