Customer Share ~ Tanya of Snap & Tumble

December 13th, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Tanya Roberts of Snap and Tumble let me know how she’s using her Divine Twine. I must say I think it’s a match made in heaven. Letterpress and Divine Twine. Yum!  I adore letterpress items. There’s something so satisfying in touching the indentations the press makes on the super thick cotton paper. (I have a fantasy of one day learning how to create letterpress goodies.) Take a look at Tanya’s creations and visit her blog to learn more about letterpress. Thanks for sharing Tanya!

New Divine Twine Colors Are In Stock

December 7th, 2010 § 2 comments § permalink

The day that seemed like it would never come, has finally arrived. I practically sprinted out to meet the delivery truck. The four new Divine Twine colors are in stock; Blueberry, Air Mail, Brown Sugar and Plum. Thank you to everyone who left a nice comment or signed up to be notified. It’s hard to believe what started with 5 colors a little over a year ago has grown to 12 color family. Knock me over with a feather. No lie.

Here’s a little teaser. I’m working on a new product I hope to have in the shop in January. No, it’s not more twine. Stay tuned…

Divine Bakers Twine Tree Trimming

November 22nd, 2010 § 4 comments § permalink

Jan Ely strikes again! Check out this miniature bottle brush tree she decorated with Divine Twine candy canes and popcorn garland. It makes me smile each time I look at it. The “how-to” is after the photos.

Here’s how she made the candy canes;
Cherry Divine Twine
White Glue
Wax Paper
Skewer or tiny dowel

Cut the twine in 1″ pieces. Coat with white glue. Lay on wax paper. Using the blunt end of the skewer bend one end of the piece in a u-turn shape to create the top of the candy cane. Let dry 10 minutes or so. Place skewer across two cups/cans/jars to create a horizontal pole. Hang the candy canes from the skewer to dry. The candy canes are pliable at this point and you may want to tweak the shape a bit if needed before they totally dry. After they are completely dry (about an hour), trim the frayed ends with scissors.

Popcorn Garland
Lemon Divine Twine

Working off the twine spool, tie a knot every 1/8″ – 1/4″ until you have the length you want. This is one of those projects that is perfect to do while watching TV or a movie.

Jan Ely is really more than a customer, she’s my pal and co-worker. We first met years ago at Room with a Past and now she’s working with me at Whisker Graphics. Jan used Divine Twine in a way I hadn’t thought of before and it’s brilliant! She made art by wrapping the twine around twigs, wire and paper.  I really like how the twine creates different looking textures depending on how it’s wrapped. Check it out.

You can read how Jan made her creation HERE and see the product. She added more details after she shared it with me.

Jan also has a lovely blog where she shares her adventures and other creations.

Thanks for sharing, Jan!

Another color will soon join the Divine Twine family ~ Plum. This shade of purple lands somewhere between grape and eggplant, but a little softer. It should be available by the end of the year. If you’re interested, you can visit this page on the website and sign up to receive an email notification of when it’s in stock.

New Divine Twine ~ Air Mail

October 27th, 2010 § 12 comments § permalink

I’m delighted to introduce ONE of the new colors of Divine Twine coming soon. It’s called Air Mail and I just love it! It is a petite stripe of red, white and blue and though it’s called Air Mail (because it reminds me of the stripes on air mail envelopes) it would add the perfect patriotic touch (hello Fourth of July!). It’s amazing how many country flags are red, white and blue.

I must give credit where credit is due. This color combo is the brain child of Janice from Papier Valise. A woman who know a thing or ten about cute, beautiful and inspiring visual delights. If you’ve never visited her on-line shop, you are missing out.

It will hopefully be available by the end of the year. If you’d like to be notified via email when it is in stock, please visit this page and click on “Request re-stock notice?” under the photos. You will automatically receive an email when it is available and as always, I never share your information with anyone.

Divine Twine Headband

October 22nd, 2010 § 2 comments § permalink

My daughter is crafty (in a good way). The other day she had and idea for transforming a plain white plastic headband. She used a flower we had left over from this post and some Aqua Divine Twine. She secured the ends with scotch tape (I think glue would be better long-term) and attached the flower with wire. I think it turned out pretty cool.
