2jacs Has A New Shop!

It's great to be back!  I'm sure a few of you have been wondering where I've been.  I know I've been MIA since the end of December, but what I found is sometimes it's necessary to take breaks.  To just try to figure out a few things, like what direction to head in next.  I love what I do but it's also important to keep things fresh.  Through some brainstorming, I thought to myself, "what appeals to me most?". Sometimes it takes awhile to sort through all the thoughts and processes that enter (and leave) your mind.  Personally I am all about comfort and something personal in the home, while keeping it beautiful. I love texture and pattern. So my latest venture is basically an "add on" to the business and what I love to do and I'de like to introduce my new shop, Jac&Jil. I love the idea of knitted items in the home, and this inspiration really comes from my aunt, who has been making dishcloths for the family for like...well ever!  So thanks Aunt Donna!


In my shop you will find hand knit dish cloths as well as spa cloths, carefully crafted from 100% cotton.  Best cloths you will ever use!  The dish cloths work on all surfaces, the texture makes for great scrubbing, they're longer lasting than regular cloths and best of all eco-friendly!  Easily machine washable (in cold water of course), and I prefer to hang them to dry (you can tumble dry too). The spa cloths have a different texture for softness, are gentle on all skin types and wonderful with body scrubs!  You get the real spa feel using these! Coming soon, hand towels for the kitchen & bath, pillow covers and throws.  


Here's one of the spa cloth's in natural:

So please check out the new shop here for additional information such as pricing and colours.  These also make great gifts! Just look for the J&J logo!  
(The website is most likely just temporary to start, so bear with me while I go through all the trials and errors of this little shop in the beginning.  Just giving this a go for the first time.  Thanks for your patience!)

Congratulations Shelley! A new venture is always exciting... and now I know where you've been! Have missed your blog!

I used to knit dishcloths! They are such a nice alternative, and you're right, they make great gifts!

So happy to see you back :-)

Thank you all ladies! Your wishes and support is greatly appreciated...you have no idea! I think we all have had a grandmother or aunt that made and gave these dishcloths to us...and some of you smart cookies even make them *Sheila, wink...:) I have to work on that glitch Danielle regarding choosing the colours. I might ask for your help there:) I have your order and thanks so much for being my first customer...thank you thank you thank you!!

This is fantastic, Shelley! Love that you're jumping into a new venture (I'm thinking of doing something too... a little [a lot!!] scary!), and I love the product line you're developing!! Maybe you'll start making wonderful coverlets like the one we both shared!!!
Best of luck with this!

how wonderful! Congrats on your new shop. I love the store format and your adorable cloths.

Just a quick little thing I noticed....on my screen the "add to cart" button is cut off to the left so I can't see the whole thing. Message me if you need me to send a screen shot of it.

congrats again!
Stevie

This is fabulous Shelley. I totally understand about the "downtime" we all need once in awhile. I love this new venture you are on. These cloths are so organic looking and to know that you can continue the inspiration from your Aunt. Love your logo!
