Now, with more Anktangle!

You may (or may not) have noticed that I've been blogging a bit less lately. That has been in part because I've been focusing some of my energy on establishing a new creative outlet. I've been rediscovering my love of crafting lately, and it's been really fulfilling to spend more of my time creating things with my hands. After my first few recent projects, I began to remember that I really enjoy the process of creating an item much more than I really need all of the things I'd like to make. Plus, creating an item for someone else conjures up a different type of excitement and anticipation in me that isn't there when I'm making something for myself. So, I decided to open a shop for some of those handmade items.

I'm excited to announce the Grand Opening of my Etsy shop, Anktangle Creations!

Right now, I'm carrying crocheted wool soakers:

Felted wool dryer balls:

Baby leggings:

And a few other fun things, like this tic tac toe mat:

I have several other kinds of projects in the works, and I'm excited to play with making new things during my free time while Daniel naps during the day. I also take custom orders. Let me know if there's something you'd like me to make special for you, and I'll do my best to create it.

With the exception of the newly added Mini Etsy shop on my sidebar, I don't plan to advertise my shop much on this site, and I intend to keep it relatively separate from this blog. I'll continue to write here about my life, family, and food, with minimal (if any) shop updates. I already write some about crafting, crocheting, and DIY projects, so you can expect that to continue just the same.

Here's how you can keep up with what's new around the shop, since I will be running special sales (and perhaps even giveaways!) from time to time:

I'm incredibly grateful for my readers here, and I want to give you something special for being so wonderful! I invite you to use my coupon code: GRANDOPENING10 to receive 10% off your order from Anktangle Creations between now and November 1st! (No pressure, of course. I just want to make it a little easier on you if you're interested in purchasing anything you see there.)

Thanks for being so supportive. I'm really excited about this new adventure!

    I forgot to mention that adorable baby Alrik is pictured in his wool soaker on all the small soaker listings. So cute! Thanks for letting me use those photos, @Lauren!

    Wish I could open an etsy too, but living in Congo this is not an option!

  5. Eee!! I love this!! So glad you're starting on this new venture! You'll be great at it, and can definitely count on me as a regular shopper! ;)

  6. Congrats! Love the soakers. I have got to learn to crochet!
