Website Update

A brief update about our website. Progress is being made! I have slowly started adding the items sold in our shop onto our website. I have had many customers who are from out of town request shopping on our website. I am happy to say this in now becoming fully functioning! It will take quite awhile to get every item onto the website. I am adding products by vendor.

Right now, you can purchase anything made by Inky Hot Mess on our website. What does Inky Hot Mess make? Flair, wood chips, embellishments, Living Life and Short Stack Kits (pocket scrapbooking), Paper Crafting Kits, and Scrapbooking Kits.

I will be adding our Crops and Workshops to the website this month. You'll then be able to sign up for a Workshop or Crop right online.

The vendors who are now available for purchasing on the website are:

Authentique

7Gypsies

Graphic 45

All of the products available in the Inky Hot Mess shop are available on the website.

These vendors have items available, but not everything yet:

Art Impressions

Hampton Art

More are in the works! Unfortunately, there is not a speedy way to add a large number of products to the website. Each item has to be added individually and the photos uploading can take quite some time. We will get there!

Did You Know?: Paper Straws

Yesterday, I posted a photo of our brand new Halloween paper straws on our Facebook page yesterday. I was asked what can you do with paper straws? Well, besides the obvious - use them for drinking. I always say check out Pinterest and I'm not sure people remember that by the time they get home. Let's face it. This shop is full of shiny, sparkly things that distract us all. :)

So I went to Pinterest this morning and did a search for paper straws. A billion amazing projects came up....ok maybe not a billion, but it's really close. I also created a Paper Straw Ideas board on Pinterest on Inky Hot Mess's page.

Here are some projects I found. The photos all belong to the artists. The links should bring you directly to their blogs and/or websites.


Christmas tree made from straws...actually she used rolled paper, but you can do the same thing with paper straws. From Or So She Says.


Craft a centerpiece! This would be great for many holidays not just Halloween. The paper rosettes are attached to paper straws. We have a die from Tim Holtz that makes rosettes in the shop. If you have a Silouhouette or Cricut, there are files in their online shops you can purchase to make rosettes. She also used die cuts like the jack-o-lantern and black cat. From Lil Luna.


Add flags to the straws for place cards, party decorations, etc. Sarah includes step by step instructions and photos along with a template to make the flags. From Sarah Hearts.


Decorate glass milk bottles or mason jars and pop in a straw with a flag. These make super cute decorations. We had mason jars with picnic gingham paper straws in our window display over the summer. From Kara's Party Ideas.


A paper straw star banner! This is super cute. There are ton of decorations in this link From Brit + Co.


Paper Bouquets! These are gorgeous! I can just see these used as centerpieces for a variety of events - weddings, graduation parties, Christmas parties, birthday parties. From My Scrap Chick.

These are just a few projects I found on Pinterest. I hope this provides you with tons of inspiration!

It Begins at Home...October

It Begins at Home...

Inky Hot Mess believes in giving back to our local community. Every month we choose a local charity and collect donations for them to distribute throughout our local communities. We firmly believe it begins at home by giving back to your community.

October's Charity
We have chosen the Seneca County House of Concern for this month's charity. Help us stock up a local food pantry! We will be collecting non-perishable food such as peanut butter, pasta, pasta sauce, canned vegetables, bags of rice, canned tuna fish, salad dressing and tissue products such as paper towels, toilet paper, and napkins throughout the month. Simply drop them off at our store when you're downtown.



All Day Crops
Our All Day Crop on Thursdays are $5 or FREE with any donation to the Charity of the Month.

Returnable Bottles & Cans
Inky Hot Mess collects all returnable bottles & cans during Workshops and Crops. We donate all of them each month. During October, they will be donated to the White Springs Fire Association in the Town of Geneva. Please, feel free to bring your clean bottles and cans from home or your car to us and we will add them to our donations.
