Busy Times Upon Us

This is the time of year when thoughts for most turn to shopping for the upcoming festive season. For those who make many of the things people buy its the time of year we wonder where the year has gone and how are we going to be ready for all that is coming.
Some tips for getting ready for whichever end of the spectrum you are on (maybe both?):
- Tea is key.
- Its never to early to buy a handmade something from a local craftsperson. Many times if you wait you will miss out.
- Breathe. It will all get done.
- Smile.

And with that out of the way... here is a list of places you can go to buy lovely local somethings! (And I will be at all of them...come say "Hi")

  1. Great blog and the pictures are awesome. See you soon.

  2. Do you make those hats? I want one!!

  3. I do! Each hat says something in runes. The first one says Troutin' and teabuns and the second is a Newfoundland saying "In between the whiles" which is another way of describing multitasking. They are both available...and you can also check our our website :)
