I’m super excited this morning. I spent my whole morning wrapping parcels of yarn for six ladies who purchased Vinnis hand dyed cotton yarn in my Etsy shop. They read Wink’s yarn review and took advantage of the 10% discount code. I was thrilled every time a new order came through! It gives me such a happy buzz to share my beautiful yarn with others. The ladies live in the United States or Canada. One is from Honolulu!!! That REALLY gives me a thrill! South African made yarn, sold by a Brit, to Americans. How cool is that?!

The ladies put together the most beautiful colour combinations. I had to do their great taste justice, so I got out  colourful pompoms (which I made last night in front of the TV with my Clover pompom maker), tissue paper and washi tape.


Check out my very sophisticated, purpose-built packaging station – the carpet in the study :-p


Man, I loooooove washi tape! You can write little messages to your buyers!


Stripes, pompoms and bright colours. Can you ever have enough?!


Six parcels wrapped and addressed, so it’s time to go to our village post office.



Now all I have to do is wait for Mr. Postman to deliver the balls of colour to my new customers. Ladies, if you’re reading this, I sincerely hope you enjoy your yarn as much as I did sending it to you.

There are still four 10% discount codes up for grabs if you too want to buy some yarn. Just hop on over to Wink’s blog here.
