Every Tuesday, Etsy NJ Street Team hosts a Blog Hop!
It's kinda like a Sock Hop, because there is a party goin' on ~
Each week, those of us who blog, pick a fellow member of our team to showcase, then you can follow the links to read about other extraordinary team members.
I forgot all about it last week, so I'm trying to get a jump on it early and write about a nifty gal livin' in NJ and her shoppe,
When you first enter the shoppe of Pancakeandlulu, you are just hit with these wonderful array of colors and textures.
WONDERLAND handspun and handpainted gypsy yarn low impact dyes (see photo, left) is just one of the wonderful yarns I'm speaking about... just look at the combination of colors bursting out.
Only a beginner weaver myself, I just sit looking lovingly at yarns, thinking, "what can I make" ~ It's the first instinct one gets,
you see fabulous materials and think, "I MUST make
something out of this~what, I don't know, but something!"
I'm now finding myself in a Colorful Trance ~
LEMON semi-solid - handspun and handpainted pure merino yarn (see photo, right) is
a beautiful handpainted bulky wool yarn. Gorgeous mustard yellow!
It reminds me of the best glass of lemonade, ever!
And I also must say that since her 2006 Etsy Shoppe opening, this terrific entrep
reneur has been Spotlighted in
several gift guides & Also as Etsy's Feature Shoppe:

"I think of my yarns as freestyle fiber "collage", each skein is a fun and unique work of art in itself. Use them for anything you desire", say's owner of Pancakeandlulu.
But wait, now she's opened another shoppe at Etsy ~ and I'm so certain she will get a sensation response to her newest venture, too!
