Shameless Self Promotion

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!

I'm with the others- if you can't do a little self promotion here, where else can you?
Great work.

Your yarns are wonderful Claire. I hope you get great pleasure in creating such beauty in the midst of the daunting chaos of your new place.
