We just stocked the shop with quite a few Divine Twine kNots (especially in Brown Sugar). What are kNots you ask? kNots are spools of our bakers twine that did not quite make the cut in terms of presentation or size. Are they perfect? Well, no. They may be scuffed or wound a wonky or be on the small size, but there is still plenty of high quality bakers twine on each spools (at least 200 yards). They are priced at $10 each (a 33% savings) and they sell out fast so hurry on over to the shop of you’re interested.

Bitty Bags ~ 2 sizes: bigger & little
I haven’t been blogging much because I’ve been working and working and working and working on filling orders and creating new products for Whisker Graphics. One of the new products is called Bitty Bags. I’m so excited to finally be able to share them with you! (They’ve been in the works for nearly a year! Some day I will share the gory details of why it took so long.)
Though Bitty Bags are food safe, I envisioned using them beyond favor or treat bags (though they work great for that too!). I created them in 2 sizes, bigger 6.25 x 9.25″ and little 2.75 x 4″.
Pink & Chocolate Bitty Bags
The bigger size will hold A7 or A2 envelopes and makes for a nice wrap for stationery sets or an invitation. They will hold a sandwich (wrapped in wax paper and tied with Divine Twine first) to make a nice presentation at a picnic or buffet. And they make cute gift wrapping too.

The little size is so sweet. They are perfect for gift card or gift tag enclosure, loose candy treats and a business card fits just right. I’ve been using them to organize small samples of a different product I’m working on and it makes me smile each time I use one.

They will be available both retail and wholesale; in packs of 20 or in bulk. The first shipment is on its way and I’ve put them up on the website, but they won’t be available to order for a few more days (I want to make sure they arrive safely). You can sign up to be notified when they are in stock by visiting any Bitty Bag item page and clicking on the “Request Re-stock Notice” under the photos.

Jan Ely has struck again and Oh My! she has blown me away with her creativity. Check out these cupcakes she made using Divine Twine as her inspiration.
She covered a styrofoam ball with Cotton Candy Divine Twine and topped it with silver bugle beads and a wooden cherry.
This one she made from Orange Divine Twine and topped with orange paper circles (from a hole punch), white glitter and a sparkly orange sphere from her craft stash.
Green Apple Divine Twine wrapped and glued around a styrofoam ball and topped with brown paper circles and a “candle” made from a wooden dowel. I love how she used one strand from the twine to make the wick. So clever!
She even made a cupcake stand from thrift store finds: A clear glass candlestick, a small white dish and a clear glass tumbler with a glass knob glued on top.
Thanks for sharing Jan!!

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!

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…

All the new colors Blueberry, Air Mail, Plum, and Brown Sugar should be in stock by December 9th. The waiting is almost over. Yea!

A sugar dispenser is a sweet way to keep your Divine Twine in sight and ready to use. With the flap dispenser and dimensions of the container, it’s like they were made for each other. (Divine Twine spool measures approx 4″ tall x 2″ diameter.)

Back in February I offered a free Valentine’s Day garlands printable and people seemed to like it. A reader asked about a holiday garland. Great idea!
This time around there are two sheets. You can mix and match the words to create your own sayings. There are several tiny images to place at the beginning and end of words + they also make great gift tags.
Use as gift tags too
You can use tape (yea! another reason to use Japanese Masking Tape!) to hang a garland on your front door, mantle or wall. One attached to a large wrapped gift would be nifty too.
If you download this printable, it would be lovely if you’d leave a comment. It’s fun to see who and how many people enjoy it. Feel free to spread the word. Enjoy!

Suzonne Sterling is a professional crafter and all around wonderful person. You may remember how she used Divine Twine in some greeting cards she created. Check out the holiday ornaments she made with felt (my favorite fabric to work with) and Divine Twine.

And this wreath she made. So clean, crisp, beautiful and simple to make.
