2018 - A Year in Review

Originally posted on December 29, 2018 on our previous website platform. The love we have felt for our side hustle (also knows as Aunt Karen's retirement dream) has been amazing this year. Our sales at the markets and shows we attended were beyond our expectations. We have grown our social media presence and have sold items via Facebook and Instagram. In doing so, we have been in touch with people we have not seen or heard from in years. Along with all of this, we teamed up with Leighla's Love Bags to help provide postage for their care packages.

Hudson's Bay Inspired Baby Blanket

Originally posted on September 4, 2018 on our previous website platform.   The idea for this blanket started when my husband’s long time friend and his wife announced they were having their first child.

Our work sock booties have been one of our best sellers at our summer farmers markets and Christmas sales venues. It seems that everyone knows someone who wears the traditional work sock and has a new baby in their life. We currently offer our work sock booties in three sizes...

A Pinterest Break

Originally posted March 8, 2018 on our previous website platform.   So many lovely patterns so little time! It is easy to become drawn into the world of Pinterest. So many great ideas; food, family, fitness and my favourite crafting. Don't get me wrong, I love to see new patterns and new ideas. The problem too much pinning, too little doing. As winter comes to an end and some small signs of spring have started to appear.  I saw grass in my backyard this week!!! I have started thinking about spring cleaning. My friend Marly over at Cleaning by Design...
