etsy shop sale and new additions

well, has everyone recovered from yesterday's festivities?  we had a low-key day leading up to a delicious Thanksgiving meal.  i got a little work done, spent time with Hoss and Mr. Bagubian, and then got was perfect!

as promised, i am checking in with some new additions to the Etsy shop.  today kicks off the first day to save 15% off of your entire purchase to celebrate Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, My Birthday Sunday, and Cyber Monday.  just use the coupon code NOVEMBER15 during checkout.  so if you are at home today instead of out and about getting the deals in person, you can still get a deal at Thurston Post on Etsy.  and if you are out and about on a mission to score a great deal in person, don't worry--the code is available through Monday!

first up, a new mini kit with the color RED in mind.  the Red Trimmings Mini Gift Wrap Kit has all kinds of little bits and bobs to help you make your packages look spectacular this Christmas.  from small white sequin tags to washi covered clothespins, it's all about cute little details!

each of these kits comes with 10 white sequin tags--5 small and 5 medium.  i stamped "Joy" on the small ones and "For/From" on the large ones.  use them together on one package or separately on two; either way, they're sure to brighten it up!

i made 3 tiny confetti bags out of glassine envelopes, sequins, and glitter for this kit.  they would be so cute clipped to a tag or the top of a small box wrapped with plain kraft paper, don't you think?  

each kit also comes with 20 yards of red baker's twine, 3 yards of red seam binding, and 2 yards of taffeta ribbon with white trim.  the ribbons come wound on a vintage clothespin and secured with crystal straight pins.

i had to include some washi covered clothespins, of course!  there are 6 altogether--3 with red polka dots and 3 with a grid pattern.  small boxes also look adorable wrapped in handmade garland--like the red ones i made for this kit.  the set includes two at one yard each.  

and naturally i had to package the whole thing up in a fun and festive way.  everything comes tucked into a large glassine envelope tied with more red bakers twine and decorated with doilies and silver washi tape.

next up, i've got two brand new sets of washi clothespins.  honestly, i can't stop making these things and they've been so well-received that i don't want to!  

the first set is one i've wanted to do for awhile.  silver and gold are so pretty at Christmastime that they just begged to be made. this set comes with 10 clips, including 4 with glitter tape.  glitter, we all know, is another Christmas staple.

the lovely packaging...

and now a whole set of glittered clothespins!  featuring tapes in silver, green, red, and gold, this is a gorgeous set of 8 that will add tons of dazzle to your holiday packages or your home decor.  my photos (as usual) aren't doing them justice--they are very bright and shiny in real life!

ok, folks, all of these items are now for sale in my Etsy shop so be sure to check them out.  they are included in the 15% off sale--everything is!  so if there is anything you've been eyeing, now is a great time to get it!

i'm not done adding things to the shop, either.  i hope to be back here again tomorrow with more new additions.  until then, happy shopping!
