The holidays are over and before heading back to work this week Erick and I used our last day off to de-Christmas our apartment.  The stockings are down, ornaments packed and the tree is no longer standing tall in the living room.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide_Twine And Braids

Twine & Braids Winter Collection

The weather in New Jersey has been unseasonably warm for early November, today reached a balmy 75 degrees.  As much as I am trying to enjoy this unexpected warmth before it’s gone for good, it’s been making it difficult to get into the holiday groove.  Despite the heat, I’ve been working hard on my winter […]

Here goes nothing

What came first? Twine & Braids or the egg?  In this case it was the yarn egg. In late January of this year I started an Etsy shop called Twine & Braids based on a homemade Easter decoration I crafted up a few months prior.  Since then I have expanded to various home and holiday decor pieces […]
