Sales have been up this week! This is great news in itself. But I was curious as to why...

So I started checking around. I went to flickr and searched the front page listings for my name. I was wondering if the stars and moons had aligned and maybe one of my items had made the front page....

Well, no, I did not. But one of my treasuries did! I am so excited. I rarely land a treasury and normally they look like crap. So needless to say none of my treasuries have ever made the front page.

This particular treasury was titled: "She is Stacked" and I used pictured of stacked items on Etsy.

It was posted on January 12, wish I had been around to see it, but it is exciting none the less!

Snow Day!

Snow has actually fallen in the Triangle! It is not just a dusting of snow either. Yesterday we had 3.75" of snow to fall. Around these parts that is huge.

One of the reasons that I love Raleigh and the Triangle is because everything shuts down when it snows! It allows for an unexpected day of rest. That is unless you have a crazy boss (like mine) that makes you brave the unplowed streets to come into work!

But for those who are able to stay home and play in the snow it is a blissful day! Here are a few items from Etsy that remind me of the snow outside my window.
Snowmen Blank Note Card Set 5x8 by GigiPhillips, $20.00

Frost - Set of Two Ponytail Holders - Hot Hair Candies by Gazzu, $3.50

The Safe Place by JoannasPhotography, $20.00

Handpainted Blue Snowflakes Resin Pendant Necklace by AlloverArt, $25.00

Hi! Welcome to the official blog for Start To Finish Supplies. My name is Katie. I am the face behind Start To Finish Supplies. I am a 20-something living in Raleigh, NC. I enjoy spending time crafting. When I am not crafting I am reading, kayaking or at the beach. I started out making jewelry in March, 2007 under the business name Katie Carolina Designs. I launched Start To Finish Supplies a year later in March 2008. Start To Finish Supplies has been a blast. I take pride in offering supplies to fellow crafters at reasonable prices. Why pay more money to buy from a large corporation? With Start To Finish Supplies I am always around to answer questions and to provide excellent customer service. I strive to make every transaction perfect!
