One of the most common misconceptions that we hear from people that don't craft (or new DIYers) is that we make things with our hands "to save money." While we definitely think that getting crafty is an excellent value, the hundreds to thousands of dollars in our respective craft stashes indicate that we've shelled out big bucks for the pretties that we create with. We are willing to bet that you get that in a big way as well! Still, budgeting matters, and it's not always possible to pick up every Elsie B fiber that catches your eye at any moment. It can also be difficult to add higher ticket supplies to your repertoire, even when they increase speed and productivity dramatically. (I'm looking at you, spinning wheels!) The good news is that Created by Elsie B offers a good dozen payment methods. One of our more budget-savvy options is Sezzle. Sezzle allows you to make Elsie B purchases using four easy installments. Here's how it works!
One of our primary focuses for the last few years at Created by Elsie B has been building a sustainable infrastructure for the business. It takes a lot of pieces to create the lovely fibers that you all love, and most of those things carry on quietly behind the scenes. The most significant change for you, however, has probably been launching our very own Created by Elsie B shopping platform. We spent a lot of blood, sweat and fluffy love building it, and we want to make sure that you're getting the most out of our website every time you visit us. It's packed full of features and super easy to navigate. There are several ways to search our catalog, plus a few hidden gems that you may have missed during casual browsing.
Last month we put out a little Instagram poll asking what you would like to see for our first spinning tutorial. You overwhelmingly picked a combo spin, and LeAndra took a deep breath and dived right in to make this educational and vibrant spin a reality. Though there were a few surprises along the way, and we weren't sure about the results at a few points, this actually turned out to be a really cool project, and we're glad that you challenged us to bring it to life! We had to split this into two parts, and they will both be pretty image heavy posts, but it was important to us to make sure that the process was clear and easy to understand. Strap yourself in, and let's get down to combo spinning!
