Wool Street and LivSimple Farms

LivSimple Farms logo

This Christmas craft show season, LivSimple Farms will be hosting my hats, baskets and bags all the way out in Enterprise, Ontario, near Kingston.

Liv specializes in handmade goat milk products including soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions. I’ve personally used the soaps and face mask so I can say they’re pretty great products!

Goat’s milk is amazing for your skin – it contains a lot of vitamin A which helps to repair your skin, the lactic acid helps to remove dead skin cells AND to top it all off, it’s super moisturizing.

Check out her website so see all the things she makes.

I’ve been busily working on getting some inventory made up this summer in preparation for the craft show. There will be mom and baby matching hats, cat baskets, market bags and more. Can’t wait! Thanks Liv!

Summer Stitchin’

Summer is a time for sipping drinks, sitting by the lake and soaking up the sun. I try to do this as often as I can because I know it’s not going to last forever. Soon the winter will be upon us and I’ll be back to curling up under blankets and knitting sweaters.. but enough about the cold.

I’ve been keeping my hands busy this summer making purses and beach bags. My latest adventure has been making market bags. We all know how important taking care of the planet is and with one simple change we can make all the difference. I chose super soft cotton yarn to make these, it’s so soft and dreamy.

Taking just one of these bags to the grocery store or farmer’s market can save up to 30 plastic bags a year. So you can imagine how many you save if you use 2 or even 3!

I made 3 crochet style bags and 2 knitted ones to far. Head over to the shop to see my knit bags- you will have to visit ReStyle in Brampton to see the crochet ones 🙂
