don’t want to try it? just want to buy it?

You heard it right. Don’t want to try it? Just want to buy it? 

I’m starting something new. A little adventure that I hope you will come along on too. A little something to keep me sane and busy. For me? Busy and moving brings me peace and smiles. Good for me and good for you.

What’s my adventure, you ask? Well, it’s a little place I am sure you have never heard of. A little something that has been known called a ‘worldwide marketplace’. May I introduce you to my new friend, Etsy.

Yep, I have officially opened an Etsy shop. A place where you can find some of the goodies on the blog. You know, the ones that you don’t want to make yourself.

I remember talking to one of my sister’s once and she said to me, “I love your ideas, but I would much rather just buy from you than make it myself.” She reminded me that not everyone has the time, passion, desire to make those things we find all over the Internet these days. I’ve thought back to that conversation a number of time and eventually {made} the time to do something about it.

So, if you don’t want to try it? Just want to buy it? visit my new shop and pick of some treasures for yourself. Here’s a quick preview of what you can find {for now}.

Here’s the truth. It will likely be evolving and changing as the months go on, but for now it is a starting point. We will see where it goes and how long it lasts. But, while it does last, won’t you follow along?

Just a quick plug… A Build-A-Fort kit is perfect for any little on on the Christmas list. Order your Christmas presents now and give the gift of a fort. Trust me, best gift ever. My boys place with theirs at least once a week. Scouts honor.

Visit me over at Etsy and would you be oh so kind to… tell your friends, share on social media, and TELL YOUR FRIENDS.

buy. enjoy. share.

    So fun you have an etsy shop. I agree with your friend. I don’t have the time to make it (or desire). I would rather just buy it. I love the build a fort. It just might be a christmas item for a few nephews & nieces.

    Hello Lulu !

    Someone offered me a build-a-fort kit, but I have no idea how to build it.
    Is there some kind of user manual somewhere ?

      Here’s the good news, there is no wrong way to do it. The bad news? No user manual for it! However, I promise you it is super easy.You use the attached ties and provided clips to attach to chairs or things in the room, creating a tent shape. My boys tend to bring in tall chairs and clip the ribbon to their artwork wire. You can also tie ribbons together to create longer sections. I hope that helps! Have fun building…
