Teal Trendy Twine - New Bakers Twine Color

I'm so super excited.  I finally got the samples in for one of the new colors that I've been waiting for!  Yay!  Trendy Twine will have teal available this summer.  And... you know that we do not do just one plain old itty bitty thread with all that white.  No siree.  We have one with three colors and one with absolutely no white.  So a whole lot of pop!  How awesome is that, my twiners?  Are you as excited as I am?  I hope so!  I've got a small picture just so you can take a little peek at all of the yumminess.  So what do you think??  Don't you just love it?


Stay tuned for updates.

Boy or Girl?


Hey everyone!

Alyssa here from My Thoughts Exactly! This week I was inspired by these adorable gender announcements created by Jen Rzasa. Jen's are way cooler of course, but I have so many friends and family members in my life right now who are pregnant that I thought it might be fun to make some myself. Here is what I came up with:




I used PosySky and Cotton Candy Trendy Twine on the front of the card to set up the boy or girl? question. For the onsie I used the Lettering Delights Baby Simple Shapes Cut-its set.






And on the inside I used the My Thoughts Exactly More Big Thoughts stamp set for "Welcome baby" and some stickers for "girl".




On the inside there is also this adorable little pacifier tied with Posy Trendy Twine. The pacifier is also from the Lettering Delights Baby Simple Shapes Cut-its set.


Have a wonderful day!
<3 Alyssa

Sweet Little Giveaway

We are doing a sweet little giveaway to celebrate the blog turning one this past week.  (It's a tad late because we had the huge giveaway for the facebook page reaching 1100 fans last week.)  Winner gets this cute little set of all 19 current colors of Trendy Twine -- 5 yds of each color for a total of 95 yds.  If you have all of the colors, which I know a lot of my twiners do, this would be a great gift for a fellow crafter.  You know how much we all love to get crafty goodness.   

What do you need to do?  Just go the the Trendy Twine facebook page, like the page, and comment on the photo for the giveaway.  You must click on the photo to leave your comment.  Giveaway ends Friday, 4/27, at 10 pm CST.

Just an FYI... there will be 14 more twists available this summer.

Have a fabulous week!

Guest Designer Wednesday - Belinda

We are so excited to have Belinda from Bee's Hive O'Drama guesting for us today.  Not only is she guesting for us.... she did not one, but two projects.  Yep, two.  How awesome is that!  She decided to feature Sky Trendy Twine.  It's a yummy mix of light blue and natural/unbleached twine, which gives it a nice, soft look.  So, are we ready for some twine inspiration?

What an adorable idea.  Not only is it super cute, but it's practical too.  Who wouldn't want to receive this cute mason jar pincushion as a gift?  Great idea for Mother's Day.  Don't you just love the way Belinda tied the twine around the top and then added little bits of twine to embellish the top?





Her second project is this gorgeous birthday card.  Don't you just love all the shades of blue?  Look at all the pretty stitching.  And that kite tail... just the cutest thing. 






For  more details, please visit Belinda's blog
Be sure to leave her some love and thank her for guesting for us.

You still have time to link up for the Monthly Challenge.

Don't forget we are having a super duper sale
this week to celebrate the blog turning 1.

Have a happy Wednesday!

Hi Everyone!

It's Jamie here and I'm super excited to share another Trendy Twine project with you!

I've been pretty obsessed with all the cute little bugs files out there lately so here is my card.

I used a dot glue runner over the heart wings and then wrapped the twine around each one all the way into the middle. For the larger wing I used Cotton Candy and the smaller wing is Sky.
