New "Survivor Chick" Chocolate Bar

.

I am a huge chocolate fan and recently found a chocolate bar that 'gives back', so I was sold right away. I ordered a single bar to taste test and then ordered 3 cases of these bars, so I could offer them to you as well.
This one is made with all natural ingredients by the Seattle Chocolate Company in Seattle, USA. Inside is white chocolate with raspberry and a hint of lemon all wrapped in dark chocolate. A huge bonus is that 100% of the profits go to fight cancer.
This 2.5 ounce (70 gram) bar costs just $3 plus $2 shipping.
Send me an email if you want one - they will only be with us for a short time, so they are not going on the website.

New Wool Felt Project

I've been experimenting with some new project ideas using our very versatile wool felt. Here's the first one using a piece of our red felt .....it's a coaster that comes up around the base of the glass





To make this, thoroughly soak a piece of wool felt somewhat larger than the base of the glass. Then, with the glass upside down, put the wet felt on the base - pulling and stretching the felt until it forms to the base with no wrinkles or folds. Put a rubber band around the base to hold it firmly in place. Let it thoroughly dry and remove the rubber band. When the felt is dry, it will maintain its new shape. Cut the excess away by trimming around the line where the rubber band was. That's all there is to it - a quick and simple way to have a festive look this time of year and it's a great way to use those extra scraps of felt.

Lower Prices??

Yes, we are pleased to announce that we lowered the prices on the Ottobre Design magazines due to the change in the exchange rate between the US$ and the Euro. Good news for everyone. We here in the US and Canada get a lower price and Ottobre will in all likelihood sell more magazines as a result. Definitely a win-win situation.
