Creative Gift Wrap

April 25, 2011

Hello thegiftedblog.com Click the image to vist the site and see some DGY ribbon at work!

Happy Monday Friends!

 

For those of you who purchase your yarn from Darn Good Yarn, you know that I love to wrap up your yarn in purple tissue paper and use bits of recycled yarn and ribbon.

I really feel honored that you want to try out Darn Good Yarn, or your coming back for seconds or thirds…or….

So, in the same way your purchases at Darn Good Yarn are gifts, I want you to have the yarn presented to you as gift…an affordable luxury!

But in that same light, I love seeing what the latest trends in wrapping gifts are. The one thing I’ve learned since starting Darn Good Yarn is that the wrapping is half the fun of the gift. That’s why I want to re-introduce you to Charissa at http://www.thegiftedblog.com

The site is an amazing collection of eye candy and total inspiration. I mean, hello, have you seen the photography?! Charissa is really an artist and I just had to share this great blog with you. She is the master of creative gift wrapping.

Again, be sure to visit, http://www.thegiftedblog.com and show my friend some Darn Good Yarn-esque support!

 

Have a wonderful week and tell me what’s the coolest wrap job you’ve done lately?!

Thursday Update! Progress on the Kimono Jacket

April 7, 2011

Hi friends,

I hope you’re having a great day. I’ve been knitting all morning but alas I need to do some “work work”. But as soon as I’m done I’m going back to finishing this kimono jacket because I am seriously having a blast with it. The colors are just my cup of tea!

What do you think?

Tuesday Update:I lost my marbles

March 22, 2011

It’s true. It’s Tuesday and my second, third and fourth winds have abandoned me and all we’re left with is one crazy owner of Darn Good Yarn.

I hope you get a laugh, I know I did…. I have been told I’m my own best friend…that’s a good thing right?

Much love!

Call to Action: Join the Craft Crusade

March 11, 2011

Hi friends,

The video below pretty much says it all. But if you own a shop or would like to join me on my crusade to donate to the Red Cross to help out with what is going on in Japan, email me and let’s talk nicole@darngoodyarn.com

And, let’s give thanks for what we have in the now.

Namaste,

Nicole

Got a dilemma?

March 1, 2011

Hi friends!

Great picture eh? Mike took it of me when we were on a trip in NYC after visiting my mommy. We went to this wine bar and they were closed, it was hot, I was grumpy and voila…. :)

So I just wanted to use this time to extend to you the forum to send me any questions or dilemmas you might encounter. Did you mess up your knitting? Are you having a problem finding patterns? Did your dog run away? Shoot ‘em at me and I’ll consult my power team and get back to you with an answer!

Who’s first?

J’adore Goulet Pens!

February 25, 2011

Bonjour mes amis!

So, if you’re hooked up with Darn Good Yarn then you’re a supporter of non-”big boxed” businesses. Many of us live in communities where these publicly traded companies have bled out the small “mom and pops”. This is why I wanted to bring another great company: The Goulet Pen Company: http://www.gouletpens.com

Go check em out!
