Will Work For Twine

Back in September, I shared my awesome source for beautiful baker's twine: The Twinery. Fast forward to November, and guess who I got a message from? Nicole from... The Twinery!
I knew they had a website, of course, but it turns out they also sell on Etsy. Nicole caught a glimpse of my tags made with her twine, and she made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
In her message to me, Nicole wrote "On Dec 4 and Dec 9, The Twinery is setting up craft fair booths at two local elementary schools. All the monies that come in to the schools for those days will be going to help local families in need this holiday season. We've been looking for crafters to create items using our twine so we can showcase them on the tables at the craft fairs in an effort to sell as much twine as possible to help the families! I am setting up a mini Christmas tree on our tables and I thought that your twine star gift tags would be great as ornaments on our tree! "

How cool and small-worldy is that? She offered to pay me in $$ or twine, and you KNOW which one I chose. She kindly sent me two of the sampler packs pictured at the top of this post, and I had so much fun playing with the beautiful colors. I have lots to spare, so I think I'll list this little rainbow of stars in my shop for others who just may have a mini tree to decorate.


The best part of this whole twine deal has been meeting Nicole and chatting back and forth with her. She is such a genuinely nice and positive person- all while being a perfect professional and creating one of the best products I've ever seen or used. She has promised to take photos of these stars on her tree, and I will definitely share them here.


Here's wishing The Twinery many, many sales at these craft events so that the families in need will have lots of help this holiday season. I'm honored to have a small part in their generosity!
