Stocking the Store

Good morning,

And now, time out for a store update.  We will return to our regularly scheduled blogging after this important announcement.

This has been such a good vacation being home in the Spring to be with family, bake bread and cook in our own kitchen, and visit some nearby spots to indulge in our picture taking obsession.  We very much enjoy both parts of our life of travel for work and our life at home for vacation.  Yes, I know, that's backwards for most people!

As you may know if you read this blog often, I've also opened an Etsy shop, Evensens Productions, while we have been home.  It is a labor of love to stock it with merchandise and plan for more items.  I've also added patterns for those who knit and crochet and will be adding more merchandise and patterns regularly.   The images in this post are of some of the items available in the shop.  Click on any of them to see the shop.  I've met many of my blog friends over on Etsy.

I have to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who is so supportive both in encouragement for the shop and for shopping there!  That includes both family and friends and you know who you are!  You all have no idea how important you have been to help me to do what I love to do:  design in knit and crochet.  Without you and others looking at the shop and shopping there, there could be no shop.

We will be traveling again in a few days and I have been asked about the shop being open while we are away.  The shop will remain open and I will continue receive and answer all correspondence.  Orders will continue to be shipped thanks to one of my main enablers, daughter Catherine.  While away I will have even more time to devote to the creative side of my brain to design more items.  

As usual, I'll continue to blog while we are away, too, so be prepared for another road trip and some images from the high seas starting in another week or so.  :) 

So, once again, thank you so much for your support.  You have all been so very kind.

We now return to our regular blogging program tomorrow morning at the usual time....  ;)

Very best,

Hi Lois,
I can't believe it's time for you to return to the High Seas!! Time just goes too fast!
I will post about my lovely winnings from your shop very soon - I'll let you know when! I've already used the eyeglass case numerous times!It's so light and yet protects the glasses perfectly!
Hope you enjoy this last week of vacation at home! I'm looking forward to more fun photos of your adventures at sea!
