Little update & contest details!

First things first...The Whimsical Muse. I've been finding fun craft supply items here & there & thought it would be fun to share on Etsy. I decided to start up a little supply shop with quirky bits of this & fun bits of that like bakery twine, ric rac & whatnot (well, sorry, no listing for "whatnot" as yet). I do sell a few handmade items but they do tend toward the "handmade supply" end of things. I do have more items in stock that I will be listing soon.

I've been putting together a list of things that can be done with bakery twine in addition to wrapping it around a cake box. Here is where the contest comes in...1) you share 3 or more ideas of what can be done with bakery twine, 2) a winner will be picked randomly & 3) the prize guessed it, 20 yards of bakery twine, in the color(s) of your choice from The deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 14, 2009.


  1. - Use it to string a mobile.
    - Use it to crochet something thin, maybe some heavy duty coasters.
    - Use as cool shoelaces.

  2. You could use it to decorate gifts, instead of plastic ribbon.

    You could use it as doll hair on a rag doll.

    You could use it for nalbinding (which is kind of like knitting).
