New BlueQ totes, bags, boxes and more

We love the stuff made by BlueQ, a U.S.-based company with a sense of humor and social consciousness.

See all the BlueQ on our site here.

They make really cute, really useful bags and boxes.
They credit their product designers and don't rip off artwork from artists.
They use post-consumer plastics in many of their products.
They employ developmentally disabled adults at their packing facility here in the U.S. and their boxes always arrive perfectly packed.

Plus, their bags make us all kinda go squeely when we unpack them. Check this one out:

April's First Friday will be Egg-citing

Join us this Friday from 6:00-8:00 pm for a fun FREE project and a fun guest artist.

Patty Whitehurst will be here with her handmade sugar eggs. These are a traditional Easter treat and Patty makes them in the traditional way. The sugar-spun flowers, bunnies, chicks and leaves are a pastel whirl of springy joy and Patty makes each one by hand using sugar, meringue and magic. I remember gazing at the tiny world inside these eggs as a child and wanting to shrink myself down to teeny chick- or bunny-size and wander those icing gardens.

While these eggs will last for years, I never could resist nibbling at mine when I was a child. I may have to get one this year and see what happens!
Patty will be here from 5:00-9:00 pm on First Friday, April 4th.

our FREE project is available from 6:00-8:00 pm
Can't make it on Friday? We'll have 3-pin sets available to make all month at the work table, just $4 a set.

Of course, we'll be serving beer and wine for donations to Habitat for Humanity. The beer is from Lonerider, and the wine is from Sip...a Wine Store. Come have a glass, make a clip and see those eggs!

We love these locally-made candles in the store, and in our homes. This one, in the video below, is the Orange Chili Pepper scent. It's amazing and, unlike a lot of candles, passes the 'runny nose' test at our house. Many candles we fall in love with cause someone to sneeze. Those get relegated to the back porch. This one has been in almost-nightly burn mode since early January, with no sneezes!
