I haven't been posting much on our blog lately. August is always a busy month as the garden gets a bit labour intensive: picking, canning, freezing... I enjoy the work though; seeing those lovely jars all lined up on my shelves makes it worthwile.
I've also been working on opening a new shop, a subdivision of newleafhandmade, which has been keeping me busy. For a while now, Celia and I have been talking about a women's clothing line to add to our shop, but with all the different things we want to make, it made sense to just open another shop, only for apparel. I'm going to switch our necklaces over there too, once I get a handle on things. So far I've only listed a couple things, but we've been talking about adding some baby and toddler wear: upcycled clothing, pillowcase dresses, and tutu's.
In keeping with New Leaf's mission of making less of a mark on the earth in our creating, our clothing is pre-loved: thrifted and upcycled into one-of-a-kind pieces. Enjoy! Check in often as well; we'll be adding items as we complete them. You can subscribe to the shop feed on the bottom left sidebar to get regular updates.
