Happy Wednesday to you! Today I am excited to share my very first Etsy feature with you.
I had purchased some beautiful Divine Twine for the first time a few months ago, and absolutely loved it. I tend to use twine quite a bit in my papercrafting projects-especially for cards. Imagine my distress late one night when I realized I had run out of three of the four colors of twine I had on hand! I had to find more stat, to ease my sad, twine-starved existence. What can I say? I am in love with twine on my pages and cards!
Unfortunately, the original source for twine had sold out, with no promise of a restock. Enter Etsy. If you are not shopping on Etsy, you are really missing out! There are so many fabulous, unique items for papercrafters or others who have the crafty bug. After doing a quick search for "divine twine", I found Endless Inkabilities.
Endless Inkabilities is an adorable little Etsy shop run by Kim, an avid stamper and cardmaker. Kim offers the divine twine in 12 colors!
The most fabulous aspect of Kim's store is that crafters can purchase smaller amounts of twine (not just the huge spools pictured above). I found other sellers on Etsy who sell this brand of twine, but it was difficult to find a "trial" size. Kim offers the twine in 10 yard lengths for 1.50 per color, or a collection of all twelve colors (in fewer yards per color) for under $8! You cannot beat that on the internet as far as my little searching odyssey has found.
Plus, you should know that Kim packages her twine in the most adorable way-on these little tags with hearts stamped across the bottom in the color of the twine! It's like a little reference tag for when you need that perfect shade. You all know by now how much I love a reference tag! (HA!)
Kim is going to offer a special deal during January for all Mustard Seed Readers. For every 5 colors of twine you purchase in the 10 yard length, you will receive 1 color for free! If you want to take advantage of this sale, just put the 5 (or 10, or 15) items in your cart, then when you checkout, type "referred by The Mustard Seed blog-I would like to have __________ as my free color" in the comments section, and Kim will fix you up with an extra lovely bit of twine goodness for your happy mail package.
Also, Kim is offering 2, yes TWO complete sets of twine (5 yards of all 12 colors) to my blog readers! Just leave a comment between now and Sunday night (January 9th by midnight) to be entered for the drawing. To be entered, tell me what current project would be perfect with your new twine!
If you're like me, you might not want to shop now, because if you win the twine, then you would have double. But working with Etsy sellers is the best because they are so focused on their customers. Kim has offered to give a refund to anyone who purchases the twine now and then wins the drawing on Monday. So, shop away!
