Pinterest Yarn Letter Win!

Image

This is not a wearable DIY but it is a pretty cool one. I had some beautiful new signage made for the Case Clothed new location, unfortunately the weather here has been so crummy and cold and snowy that it will be awhile before they get mounted.

I needed to come up with a way for people to notice my new location without taping tacky computer printed sheets of paper to the windows. Then I remembered seeing this pin on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go. Cardboard letters wrapped in yarn! Simple enough….right?

It took forever! I don’t know if I picked the three most difficult letters to wind but it was time consuming. The materials cost me about $20, I used cardboard for letters instead of wood (mainly because I couldn’t actually find wood letters to cover).

In the end I’m happy with the results and they look fabulous in the shop.

New Shop Renovation!! I’m in love!

2014 marks a milestone in my entrepreneurial life. I relocated my shop. It had to be done. My old space was merely 200 square feet and was beginning to feel more like a hovel than a professional business.

I did lose a couple nights sleep over the move, I’d heard so many times that relocating a business is a risky thing to do. I figured that since I’d managed to get through to the three year landmark of staying alive as a small business it could be done.

The fun part was the renovating!! 66 Main St. was formerly a tiny taco restaurant. This colour…

The only thing I really really wanted in my new space was a barn board wall. Since barn board is all the rage right now and quite expensive I improvised with natural pine and picked out a nice stain to get the desired effect.
