Granny Chic a Week and Farmer and Maker Spotlights-

It is almost 2016!  Can you believe it?!  We are really excited about the new year and the opportunities that a new year brings.

We have a few fun series we will be working on to share with you all in the new year...

First, is our...

Granny Chic a Week!  We will be making a Granny Chic project each week next year and sharing the DIY with you!  Granny Chic is me all the way, so it is a fun way to share the things we love while dressing up the house (and maybe even myself....)

We are also going to start a once monthly series on...

We will interview a farmer or maker each month to get a glimpse into their work and passions to inspire all of us to do what we love!

And as always, we will fill in the gaps with what we are up to here at Fiberton Acres!  We can't wait to start sharing in the new year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy Holidays from Fiberton Acres!

We just wanted to say Happy Holidays to all our lovely folks out there!  We hope you all have a safe and joyous filled holiday season.

We have a LOT of fun stuff planned for the new year, so stay tuned!


PS - Here are a few of the other photos from our shoot with Rocky...

Look at that sky!  It started raining a little right after we came inside.   Ric is trying the 'hey look over here' hand signal...didn't really work. ;)

And if you have not seen it yet, you have to go to our Facebook page and check out this video of Rocky and Ric playing ball!  Too cute!

Looking into the future - a.k.a. - New Year's Manifesto

As we wind down the year, I have been thinking about our new year ahead, as well as the hopes and goals for our business and lives.

But I can't set normal resolutions.  It is impossible to stick to them.  It makes me feel bad or make some excuse for why it was a stupid resolution when I don't stick to it.  A while back, I found another blog (which is sadly down right now) which they showed their beautiful manifesto for the new year.  It was perfect for me!

So I have tried each year since to create my own manifesto.  It is something to hang on the wall to remind us of things we want to try for or try out.  I love Google Drawing, so I went in and put this little ditty together, and we would love to share it with you.

I will be printing one on nice paper and hanging in the house where I can peek at it from time to time to remind myself of the things I want to do.

We hope it inspires you to think about things you'd like to do more of, try out or just the small things that make you happy that you want to infuse into your new year.

Holiday sale at Fiberton!

It is definitely the holiday season!  This evening it even rained here on the Central Coast of Cali, which is kind of the closest we get to winter weather!  I wasn't sure I was ready for the cooler weather, but I broke out my big crazy bulky knit house socks and my sweaters and I am feeling pretty good about it now.  Plus, it is kind of the best time of the year to be in the fiber arts!

Speaking of which, we totally want to extend the fun and cheer to our awesome blog readers with a little sale at our Etsy shop. 

We already have a deal going right now that if you buy a hook or needle organizer, an upcycled project bag, or a ball of yarn you get a free hand carved crochet hook.  BUT...drumroll please...for all our awesome blog readers, we are offering free shipping! Just use the coupon code "secret" (wink wink) at checkout now until Dec 18th! Check out our shop here!

I have been working on new yarns which will be up on the shop tomorrow, as well as knitting some cowls with fibers we spun and lovely chunky buttons we made.

Drop spinning alpaca by the tree.

Knitting in the evening (note all the yarn related objects in the background...haha!)
We hope the season treats you well!
