New event for RSE

This year I will be participating in The Great Rhody Yarn Crawl, an event that takes place April 12-14, 2013.

From the Ravelry page:

What is a yarn crawl anyway?

A yarn crawl is an organized event that features your local yarn stores.

Organizers of a yarn crawl do all the work. We find the sponsorship for raffles and we contact the yarn stores to find out what stores will participating. We provide the structure that turns browsing at a yarn store into a fun event.

How do you participate?

There is no cost for participating in a yarn crawl. You visit the yarn stores participating in your area (during their businesss hours) on the dates we have scheduled the yarn crawl. That’s it!


I will be a vendor on the last day, Sunday, April 14 from 12-4 at the Barn at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI (250 Metacom Ave).   I won’t have all of my stock there, however;  this event’s inventory will consist mainly of yarn, knitting and fiber related items- mostly yarn bowls and mugs.

I hope to see you there!

New online venue for RSE!

Hi everyone!  Some of you may have noticed my Etsy shop has been a bit… stagnant and empty.   Part of that is due to me working on orders, but part is also due to the fact that I have been setting up a second shop at Indiecart.  This is a sister site to Hyenacart, a site you may have seen my pottery selling on before.

While Hyenacart is geared more towards cloth diapering and natural living, Indiecart features well-established artisans with outstanding feedback and quality items, who must pass several criteria before being invited to set up shop.  This assures that customers can shop with confidence!

I have stocked a few items to be available for sale on St. Patrick’s day, March 17, at 10 p.m. EST.  Please come visit!

It’s no secret that I love animals.  I’m a little bit crazy about all kinds of animals, except maybe hamsters.  😉   We have had a lot of pets:

Darn, I couldn’t fit Roth, Simon, Gris Gris, Poe, Boi Boi, Precious, Sparklefairy, Stephen, Montoya, Dolly, Bunny, Kimi, Shohko, Elmo, Orville and the rest of the crew in there!  Sorry, guys!  😉

I also love to hear about other people’s pets.  I can talk pets all day, every day, much to my husband’s dismay.    And, because the definition of “pet” is “an animal treated with care and affection,”  I would like to give away this heart bowl in honor of our beloved pets:

I think a heart is the perfect symbol of “care and affection.”

It’s a good size and perfect for feeding or watering anything up to a medium sized dog!  I’m too lazy this morning to get up and measure it, but I’m going to guess it holds 3 to 4 cups.

All you have to do is tell me what pets you have, or used to have (and tell me their names, too!) in the comments below.  If you are pet-deprived (you poor thing!) just say so- you will still get a chance to win this bowl, and you can use it to feed and water yourself!

I will use a random number generator to choose the winner on Wednesday, March 13.  Winners in the US will receive this heart absolutely free!  International winners will receive the heart bowl free, and I will cover $12 of shipping, but the winner must pay for the remaining shipping charge.

Good luck!


And the winner is:  #27- Dana!

If you’d still like to share your pet stories, I’d love to hear them!
