Did you know "washi" means "Japanese paper"?! All our chiyogami yuzen washi is hand-silkscreened in Japan - even our washi tape is made w/ REAL washi!

Happy #SmallBusinessSaturday !๐ŸŽ‰ If you didnโ€™t know, today is the day designated to #shopsmall and support small businesses! And to celebrate 15 years of being a #smallbusiness , I decided to give a FREE WASHI CLOTHESPIN GIFT with all orders until the end of our sale on 11/30 (including all orders placed yesterday)!
.
15 years ago people thought I was crazy to quit my job as a social worker to become an #entrepreneur and sell clothespins for a living. Well, half a million magnets later the clothespins are still one of our staple products even as the business has grown and evolved. When you shop small you are not just supporting a business, youโ€™re supporting a dream. So thank you to all of you for helping to keep my dream alive!

Happy Thanksgiving!!๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฝ I hope everyone had an amazing day! This year I was unfortunately quarantined from my family due to the contagiousness of my illness, so I ended up cooking up our own turkey and the โค๏ธ and I had a quiet dinner at home (will post our feast to my stories feed ๐Ÿ˜‹). This year, as with every year, I am so thankful for the unconditional love and support from my close friends, family, โค๏ธ, and to all of you who continually cheer me and TRO on. Not gonna lie, itโ€™s been a rough year for me both mentally and physically, but the positive energy you guys send me always gives me the strength to hang in there and keep going โ˜บ๏ธ Todayโ€™s world can be such a negative and trying place.... I am truly grateful to have our little world of washi here that is a safe and uplifting space!

Thank you to everyone who entered! We will for sure be doing more giveaways soon, plus check your emails tomorrow to see what awesome sales weโ€™re having to kick off the holiday shopping season! If you are a winner, I will be DMing you with a personal code for your shop credit (give me some time, I promise to do it before I go to bed.... but gotta go have dessert and clean up the kitchen first ๐Ÿ˜). Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Anyone going to brave the craziness of Black Friday shopping?? For over a decade I used to be scrambling every year at this time to prep for the biggest craft fair weekend of the season. So now that Iโ€™m retired from fairs Iโ€™ll be enjoying a nice weekend at home doing absolutely nothing โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ
