Project Bags For Sale

project bagsDon’t you just love having pretty project bags to carry your knitting or crochet around in? I sure do! I’m super excited to announce that I’m going to be making project bags to sell here on the blog. I’m working on a “shopping cart” type add on to the blog, which will make things lots easier, but for now you can simply leave a comment or email me.

Bags are $25 each, with free shipping in the US. These bags are about 10 inches high and 9 inches wide. Socks or a hat project will fit perfectly!

All bags will be lined with the light green color but I’ve got a bunch of options for the outer parts of the bag. The picture up above is a sample, to give you an idea of how the finished product will look.

These are your options for the main part of the body…

Also, if you don’t see anything you love right now, or would prefer to not have a holiday based project bag, be sure to check back often because I have lots of plans for upcoming bags. I’m blessed to have a stash of really fun fabrics and am excited to see the fun project bags they will turn into.

Preparing for #yearofstash2015

I honestly can not believe that we are at the end of November already! Time goes so fast! Before we know it we will be celebrating New Year’s Eve and then beginning 2015. I’m so excited. I hope you are too! I’d love for you to join me  for #yearofstash2015! There are a few things you can do to prepare for this exciting endeavor.

First, please consider subscribing to my blog through email. Every day that I post you will receive an email notifying you. It’s the best way to guarantee that you don’t miss anything. Simply click on the heart with the envelope up over to the left of this page under the heading “Follow Me”. A new window will open where you will be able to enter your email address. It’s that easy!

#yearofstash2015Next, let’s talk about Ravelry. Are you a member? This site is a “playground” for knitters and crocheters. It is wonderful! You’ll find patterns, information on yarn, there are places to organize your stash as well as your projects, and there are fantastic discussion groups. I have a group called “A Life Full of Laughter” and I’d love for you to join. Simply click on the icon of my hubby and I kissing, lol, under the “Follow Me” heading,  and a new window will open for the group. I’d really like as many of you as possible to join the group on Ravelry. That forum is the perfect place for us to have a lot more interactions, plus you can share photos of your stashes and things you’re working on. The group on Ravelry will become a very big part of #yearofstash2015 so you don’t want to miss out! Also, if you click the “R” icon, a window will open to my page on Ravlery. You can send me a friend request, see my various project pages, and even check out my stash!

Also, if you are active on Facebook, I’d love for you to send me a friend request to my personal page, Lisa Martin Woodruff. If you click the heart with the “f” under the “Follow Me” heading, a new page will open to my Facebook page for A Life Full of Laughter. There is one other place on Facebook that I’d like for you to consider joining. It is a group I started called “Yarnaholics Stashdown”. Facebook groups are another great place to talk, share photos and support each each. That group is a “closed” group, which means that anything you post is only visible to other members of the group.

Finally, I’d like to just talk alittle bit about #yearofstash2015 and clear up a few things. I am personally going to use this year as a way of motivating me not to buy any new yarn. My stash is overflowing! Not to mention the fact that I’d like to use my money to maybe pay off some bills. So one of my goals for 2015 is to not purchase any new yarn. I’m sure you’ll hear me talking about it throughout the year. But, and PLEASE hear me when I say this, I am not expecting any or all of you to have the same goal! Honest!

The main reason I want to do #yearofstash2015 is because I know we all have yarns that we love. Whether your stash is huge and overflowing, like mine, or small and contained. Whether you want to try not to purchase any for a whole year, or a few months, or a few days. Whether you are hoping to add to your stash and purchase new yarns throughout the year. Regardless of any of those circumstances, #yearofstash2015 is for you!

I’m hoping we can motivate each other to organize our stashes, use what we have, finish what we’ve started, maybe even try some new things, and just have fun! This is our hobby…there aren’t any rules. Everyone’s experience may be different but we can encourage and motivate each other along the way!
