keeping cozy


i've been cranking out new draft stoppers for my etsy shop since it's getting to be that time of year when you don't want to feel that cold air seeping through the cracks. these ones have velcro on them and come empty so shipping is cheaper and it's easy to pull off the outer bag for cleaning. really though, i just vaccume mine off every once in a while and it works like a charm.

i can't tell you how useful these have been whether we've been living in a small city apartment and want to block the neighbor's noise and cooking smells (or, ahem, my own overuse of garlic...), or now that we are in an apartment within a big old house that comes complete with cold drafts and creaking steps. sometimes i even use them to block off rooms that we don't want to air condition in the summer...because you know, i'm thrifty like that.

i'll be posting them later in the week and of course i always take custom orders if you need a specific length. o i almost forgot to mention: i'm clearing out the shop completely to make way for new items so check out the 30% OFF SECTION! i'm beginning to look for a part-time job in hopes of starting some grad school classes after christmas so now's the time to clean house..err, shop i mean.

Gorgeous. Kat, I was wondering if you keep all your scraps and have great plans for them or if you are interested in selling them maybe? You have the most beautiful fabrics and I am in the process of making a quilt out of scraps so my radar is up and figured I'd ask :-)
