Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Looking for something unique, something hand made, something quirky? Take a look at these mugs as they are made, a different mug every month for the year. Sometimes the decoration will be the main focus of the mug, sometimes a new glaze will be what catches your eye. Either way, one of these twelve mugs is bound to, over the year, capture your heart and call to you. Let it become your go-to morning coffee mug, the mug you hope is clean at the end of the day for some evening tea, the mug you reach for first even when...

New in the Shop: Your Joy Will Turn to Ashes in Your Mouth

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Shades of purple, dark to light... almost as if that Regent You Love to Hate was choking, having been poisoned at his own wedding. If a solid, flat purple isn't your thing, if you want depth and texture and an interplay of shades, this is the rich and eye-catching color for you! HaldeCraft HandDyed yarns started life in 2007 in a small yarn store in Gainesville, Florida (Hanks Yarn and Fiber) and was then called "Perhaps Today is a Good Day to Dye". It has continued online as HaldeCraft HandDyed since 2011, and is hand-dyed and lovingly re-skeined in a...

I realized as I went to go list this that according to my calendar I wasn't supposed to list these until NEXT week.... however, I think it'd play out like Mutiny on the Bounty if I didn't, because people have been following this mug pretty closely.

New in the shop: Goddess yarn bowls

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

A great gift for the goddess-loving knitter or crocheter in your life (or maybe a great gift for yourself!). Yarn bowls hold the yarn so that it doesn't roll around on the floor while you're trying to work on your project. This is a low, wide yarn bowl, and would have plenty of room for a large ball of yarn and also some notions. Run your yarn through the guide if you want to change yarn often, or through one of the holes next to the guide for a committed-to-the-bowl project! These bowls were glazed with non-toxic glazes and can be...

New in the shop: The July Mug

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Who needs a cup of sunshine? Approximate Height: 4 inches Approximate Width: 3 inches at lip of mug Approximate Weight: 11 ounces Will Hold Approximately: 8 ounces of liquid Until sold out, you can find this limited edition mug here. These mugs were glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes, and are dishwasher safe. And while I have been known to put my own ceramics in the microwave, I don’t recommend it for long periods of time — the rapid change in temperature when you take the mug out of the microwave can cause the glaze to cool more quickly than the ceramic, which retains heat, and...
