New Blog!

Posted by Anna on Jan 29th 2021

    Hi Pepperell friends!  We're trying to get back into our blog and so now I'll be updating this too!  Interacting with customers is something I look forward to and has become a great way to interact with everyone.  So today I didn't know where to starts, and while I was thinking about it and and working on projects I did the most dangerous thing in the world: I put on You Tube!  (insert Dun Dun Duuuuuunnnnn! sound here)

                               

    You ever do that? It is so easy to go down the You Tube rabbit hole.  I know, I  know, it's controversial.  There's bad people, there's videos that are gross, there are videos that make you angry.  All of it!  You know what else is on there?  Instructions!  Inspiration!  Creative people like I have never seen.  My favorites: the people who look at some old cereal box, and use it to make something so beautiful.  I'll be perfectly frank here, I utilize it so much it's not even funny.  I've spent many hours on You Tube watching people decorating cakes and wondering how I can apply them to crafts.   hmmmm....

    But seriously, we have not been able to break into You Tube.  We've tried.  We've failed.    :-/   Honestly, the BEST people on there are the ones who make it look SO easy that I could do it!  I've been taking our plastic clips from the Clip It! kits and trying my hand at crafting with them.  As a small craft company whose specialties include plastic lacing, the idea of using recycled materials to craft with is pretty far from our wheel house.  However, I DID figure it out.  Yes, they work with craft sticks (or popsicle sticks...if you will) and I stacked and glued some old tissue boxes, cut them into strips and started building with those too.  It seems like a lot of work, but it's not.  

                                 

    So this weekend, I dare you: get on You Tube, Instagram, Tik Tok, Facebook, Etsy...wherever, and just search for one thing you might find interesting and  Go. Down. The Rabbit hole.  Discover something new.  A new technique, a new craft, something that inspires you.  Always feel free to share them with us (wink wink) and have fun.  Hey---that's half the reason to craft right?

    I'm just over here crafting people!   Anna  :-)
