The one with the TWINE & TAPE love!!

You know how much I love shining the spotlight on small business so when Theresa showed me what she was up to I couldn't wait to tell you all about some of the fun things she has planned!!!

Instagram @twineandtape

My name is Theresa, I'm 31and I live in Northern California with my husband and our three kids.  I'm a SAHM with a little online shop called Twine and Tape where I sell craft supplies.  I've always loved crafts and started scrapbooking about 10 years ago after my oldest son was born. I have a very simple style.

Theresa tell us all about your sweet little store and some of the fun new products you are working on!
I opened my shop over 2 years ago and mainly sold bakers twine and washi tape from Japan.  I recently started to add other crafting supplies.  Just this month I released my own 3"x4" wood veneer cards!  There are currently 15 designs and I'm working on more to add to the shop soon. They're perfect for pocket scrapbooking but can be used on any craft project.  To be able to put my name on a product is surreal!

I noticed you just got back from CHA! What are you most excited about coming out in the next couple of months?
There were so many amazing new products at the show, but I'm most excited about Basic Grey's new lines!  Their booth was my first stop and I ordered just about everything they had for my shop! I really love their new Capture line.

          What inspires you to create? 

My kids.  I love when they look through albums together or share them with family and friends.  It's fun to hear them tell their memories of a certain day or trip as they look at photos.   They ask a lot of questions about things they weren't there for or can't remember, like baby photos, and I love being able to share stories with them.  

(HELLO, when can I come play?)

What trends do you see coming for the fall and early 2014?
Divided pocket page scrapbooking has become really popular over the last year and I see that continuing to grow. I love that there are more and more options in album sizes, page protectors and inserts.  Capture, Project Life, and SN@P are a few of my favorites and I'm excited for their new releases coming over the next few months!  I'm sure we'll see even more of it at the winter CHA show.  

       One of my favorite passions is to shine the light on other artists, who are some of your favorite artists and/or small business owners? 

 I've always loved supporting small businesses!  A few of my recent favorites are Skipping 5 and Studio L2E.

Guess what? Theresa is giving one lucky reader a set of her new wood veneer cards!!!! Isn't that sweet? Just leave a comment telling us about your favorite trend you see for this fall and I will draw a winner on Friday!
