Ash and Acorn on Etsy will be re-opening this week. I’ve been finding spare moments here and there–like while waiting for my truck to have the oil changed–to work on my beading, and have dozens more ideas in my head for the future. My shop will continue to have wedding crowns and candles, but will also have other items for sale which share the “cover everything in beads” theme.
Having the shop open while we prepare to move will be an interesting exercise; all my craft supplies are in boxes, but aside from that, are easily accessible. Conveniently, as I mentioned, beading is a craft which is easy to transport, like knitting, and is easy to do anywhere you are going to have to sit around a wait a while–if you don’t mind a few curious looks. And if your auto mechanic doesn’t mind the possibility of a few shiny pink seed beads being left behind in his shop….
