Throwback Thursday: April 16, 2011

Pin & Tack wasn't always Pin & Tack. Formerly known as Crafty Moon Crab, the shop sold handmade soaps. It wasn't until some time later that clothespins became a featured product, then the main item to be had.

It all started on April 16, 2011. Pin & Tack's very first set of clothespins was listed. This set was made with specialty paper, a black & white damask, that was cut to size, glued and sealed by hand.

And one day later, they SOLD! That began the crafty journey of the pins :)

In the beginning, there was only a couple of options. Now, Pin & Tack offers 100s of colors with different sizes and styles. Custom requests are welcomed any day of the week.

Do you have a favorite set? Or one you'd like to see? Share your likes or wishes in the comments.

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

Why did the chicken cross the road? Well, there are plenty of reasons.
But the question is more - why did I cross the road?
Because there was a chicken and I had a slight fear of chickens.

Yes. Ridiculous, but there is a perfectly good reason.
It stems from my childhood when we spent time at my uncle's home.
My uncle had a trampoline - you know, a big one - in the backyard.
You had to walk a little ways to get to it 'cause his backyard was a good size.

He also had chickens and a rooster. The rooster was a mean son of a - er - jerk.
Yeah, he was a very, very mean bird! Now this rooster would chase you.
Like really, really chase you. And you didn't want to be caught by him. Oh, no, you didn't.

He got a piece of my uncle's toe once.
All of us kids had a healthy dose of fear AND respect.
No one wants a sharp beak tearing your appendages.

One day when I was a girl, I ran to the trampoline. Woo!
Made it. Fingers, toes, legs and all are good.
Jump, jump . . more jumping . . Jump, jump - Okay, you get it.

Time to go back inside. I look left, look right, look down.
I don't see him. Let's do this. All I have to do is go.
I jump off the trampoline and I see him from the corner of my eye.

I run. I run like a crazy rooster is chasing me. He was fast and he almost caught me.
Luckily, there was an empty plastic kiddie pool. I leap over it and kick it back.

I see that he is stuck behind that pool. I never stopped running, though.
I didn't stop running or look back until I was shutting the sliding glass door behind me.
Then I just took a breath. I survived!

Now, that happened many years ago. Since then, I have learned more about these incredible creatures.
I've come to adore them. However, I will still walk lightly & watchful about them - Ha!

Share a random childhood story of your own in the comments. I would enjoy reading about it :)
