Friday, December 19, 2008 Vacation Mode

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to let everyone know that Tina Jan is going to be taking a little mini-break from work.  You can still call me with any questions and I will still be checking my emails.  It's like nothing has changed.  :)  Soon I will be back and we'll get back to blogging and chatting about real estate and other matters.  Until then, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

Etsy - Handmade Goods for your Home!

I am a big fan of the website  Nearly all of the items are handmade and of excellent quality.  The remainder of the items are usually supplies so that you can make your own handmade goods!  There are people who sell furniture, housewares, jewelry, apparel, and anything else you can think of that can be made by hand.

For those who are tired of buying the same stuff as everyone else, this is a good place to find something unique and truly one of a kind, while helping your local craftsperson and maybe even the domestic market!

Knit Discovery

Look at this gorgeous holiday yarn ball wreath from Starbucks! 

I've discovered that I really dislike seaming up knitted clothing.  I'm converting to wonderful, magical, oh-so effortless "circular needles."  Although there are things that I don't like about circs.  They need to be slippery and sometimes they catch my yarn.  Sometimes the wire holds its curl a bit too much.  My favorites are Addi Turbos, but they're quite expensive.

Straight needles are still awesome.
