My Etsy shop will be closed.....for the time being.

Life hands us twists and turns and sometimes due to those we have to lighten our load.  So, I will closing my Etsy shop for the time being.  I want to thank all my followers for their support.  As much as I love to create items, I have to keep it manageable.  I like to think of myself as a "locavore".  So selling my items locally makes the most sense and is less taxing on my time and energy, therefore allowing me to put the energy into what matters the most, Family and our health and well being.  

I will still be selling my patterns on Ravelry.  I am hoping to add more patterns thru the fall and winter both for free and for sale.  I will be posting my free patterns here on the blog.

I will also still being posting on my other blog:  The Zen Veggie, here:  http://thezenveggie.blogspot.com/

I will still be selling the items I make Locally thru Radway in Cowichan Bay,  Prudence Organics in Duncan and The Community Farm Store. 

Thank you again for all of your support and I hope you will continue to follow along with me on my journey.

What I have been doing......

I have had my Etsy shop on vacation mode for a few weeks now.  I have had a very busy Spring and Early Summer that a break was in order to regroup and recharge my batteries.  Even more importantly I wanted to spend some quality time with my family over that summer.

I have also been making some major changes in my personal life that really required most of my focus and energy.  I have started a new Blog, it's called the http://thezenveggie.blogspot.com/
It's a written testimony of my experience of trying a lacto ovo vegetarian diet for 30 days. I will be posting my experiences daily, sharing recipes, and giving my honest opinion about vegetarianism.
Please check it out and follow along if you are interested.

I have also been educating myself on "living greener",  there really are so many things we can do.  But the key to making lasting changes in life is to do it steps.
I found this incredible video called "HOME".  Its about climate change.  If watch nothing else this year on climate change, watch this video.  http://www.youtube.com/homeproject


Happy Summer Days,
