Buzzfeed is Blowing Up the Exchanging Fire Shop

Sometimes on a cold, wintry Friday morning, you just need a little…clickbait!

Apparently Buzzfeed was feeling French today, and decided to dedicate a listicle to all the wonderful ways to feel more Parisian when your outdoors looks like a grummy North America day in March (like mine does).

I was pleased to discover that Exchanging Fire was featured today as a headliner in the listicle, showing off the stellar mini macarons I offer as stitch marker holders in my shop. They are actually really great for holding anything small and delicate, from jewelry to pins and other little notions.

Six of these awesome little fellas, who are the exact size and shape as real French macarons, can fit inside one of my large French macaron notion cases. There’s just something so entertaining about packing small things into a larger container – like those matryoshka Russian nesting dolls. Only here you can nest macarons!

Ok, now I’ve made myself hungry. I’m going to go eat a Milano cookie and stare at the falling snow, which is as close as I can get to eating French pastries in Paris today.

Hey Life Savers!

There was this great jingle in the ’70s for that life buoy shaped hard candy we all know and love – Hey LifeSavers! I was inspired to name these awesome rainbow stitch markers after the candy they remind me of. You can check them out in my shop, Exchanging Fire.

Hey LifeSavers!

And for all of you who want to hear the tune, here is the entire series of Hey LifeSavers! commercials. Enjoy the show!
