Is November really over half over? I can't believe I haven't updated my blog since July. What a bad blogger I am. all I can say is Whoops!

I hope everyone had a great summer and fall. Mine was busy with trying to stay ahead of the weeds in the garden (we had a lot of rain), working and taking two writing courses. It left little time for blogging both here and my Take on Life After 50 website. 

With my courses finished, the garden put away for the winter and less daylight hours, I have been able to spend a little more time being creative. I am working on designing patterns for matching yoga socks and wrist warmers, which I haven't quite perfected yet. There's just something I'm missing and I'm not distributing the patterns until I get them right.

I have also been working on some printables for both writers and crafters. My two latest are: Product Care Tags and Quarterly Writer's Planner. The latter will help you keep track of habits, schedules and word counts. For more information on it, see the For Writers section of my shop.

With the Christmas Holiday season fast approaching, my Product Care Tags will be perfect for your handcrafted fiber/fabric creations. They are designed so your customer can see the materials used and care instructions at a glance. There is also space for the price if you wish to add it as well. Customers like to see prices, so I do suggest including it on the tags.

I will have my own table at our local Christmas Market on December 7, 2019. In addition to my few alpaca yarn items, I'm also going to have some wood burned pictures, ornaments and fridge magnets, as well as dryer balls and handspun alpaca yarn. I will not have my usual supply of crocheted items as there will be at least two other tables there with crochet. I don't think it's fair to saturate the market so am branching out a little.

I am looking forward to getting back in the swing of things now that cooler days are here and creating more printables, patterns and ready-to-ship items for you. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

Have a great week,

Diane
