{Giveaway} I Pine for Twine



"Wrap It Up" by the group the Fabulous Thunderbirds was the tune that popped in to my head as I sat down to type this post. Why? Because today's giveaway from The Twinery will have you wrapping things up with twine all of the time!

Before we get down to the business of the giveaway, we wanted to share with you a little bit about The Twinery and owner Nicole.

How The Twinery came to be: The Twinery all started because of a personal need...a personal preference, really. I had a small business and I used baker's twine and ribbons to tie up my products. My products were colorful...bold...vibrant...and often found itself into the hands of little ones and I wanted the packaging to be just as creative and colorful and attractive. I loved the idea and concept of baker's twine...it's fun, it's nostalgic, it's reminiscent of simplicity with a twist of fabulous! After much searching and researching on various websites, forums and even at local crafting get-togethers, I realized that others were wanting the same thing I did - happy, fresh colorful string to tie up their baked goods, to use on their scrapbook pages, to use in their product packaging, to use on their party goods, brides wanted it to use on their wedding invitations, boutiques wanted to offer it to their clients and on and on the list went. We were all searching and coming up empty handed. There was baker's twine on the market...but nothing like I wanted...nothing like the crafters I talked to were looking for. It took many, many months of planning, saving, designing and waiting...did I mention lots of saving and planning?! It was no small feat, but I was able to create a type of baker's twine that everyone was searching for...and I'm so proud of the way things came together and I'm so ecstatic that so many fans and customers love this silly string as much as I do!

About me {Nicole, the owner of The Twinery}: I'm a wife and a mom - the first two most important "jobs" in my life! I have the most supporting and loving husband anyone could ask for...he even helps me package up twine orders! My two children are my pride & joy - both mommy's little helpers - they are smart, funny and remind me everyday how blessed I am that they are in my life! I was born in the Chicago area and spent most of my young childhood there {it holds a special place in my heart}...then my family moved to a small town in Wisconsin right near Milwaukee and Madison and I spent the rest of my childhood days, high school and even college years and beyond there - I had a wonderful childhood...it was full laughter, happy memories and creativity! I think that's what drove me to getting a degree in Early Childhood Education and teaching preschool for a number of years before taking the plunge into the handmade crafting market! Creativity was instilled in me at such a young age...I remember watching my mom sew, paint, draw, make and bake...it was inspiring and I knew I wanted to be just like that!

Now on to the giveaway...
