Getting ready

We had the most amazing sunny day here today, which meant that working out on the balcony (and actually being warm) was in order. Richard and I are working together for the upcoming Got Craft?, and have decided to open an etsy store in the next couple of weeks. You can see some of our supplies up there, but I'm going to keep it the end result a secret until they're all done. I'm really excited about how its all working out so far though! I'm also excited about Richard and I working together. Not only is he an extremely talented artist and craftsman, but getting to hang out together, listen to The Super Super Blues band, paint and make pesto - is such a treat.

Speaking of treats, have you seen these adorable bread bags? Home baked bread is one of my favourite, favourite things...and then to store and give them in these...well, I just don't know if it gets any better. I think I will add them to the easter baking to-do list.

Happy Monday!

Congratulations on your Etsy shop! Beautiful blog you have here.

I love those bread bags too, they almost make me think you could put all of your flattened hopes in there with the bread and they would come out all fresh, risen and floury. I've just read you are a kiwi - the weather report from down here is rain after weeks of sun. The birds are beginning to sing again because all the worms and grubs are peering out of the newly wet earth.

Hey! I randomly came across your blog and I love all things Etsy! How can I keep up with your posts? Do you have the "Follow" application?

becka said...

Thanks so much Yoli & Hilary!

I don't have the follow application actually, but I follow blogs both by using the blogger and google functions. Have you tried those?

Amber Csar said...

I'm going nuts with antisipation on the Etsy shop...

Open open open! I want to see what will be inside...(perhaps similar to gifting a bread bag...what type of bread? Fruit breads always win points with me, and olive breads too!).

Alright, I must be hungry. Miss you!

I love those bread bags! I've been wanting to make something like that for myself for a while now. I've been really in to making bread lately. I hate storing it in plastic bags (not to mention, they don't look particularly lovely hanging out on the counter). Thanks for pointing those I'm even more inspired to make my own.

Can't wait to see the big secret.
