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.
I’ve got some brand new accessories in the Exchanging Fire shop for those of you notions lovers! These are two new ways to keep yourself organized.
First up are these sweet little notions holders called Poppers. These round little hamster-ball-style cases are perfect for keeping different stitch marker sets organized. Or use Poppers to keep those extra bits and bobbles in your bag organized – put a group of safety pins in one and some leftover scrap yarn in another to keep it from being tangled.
The second goodie I have for you today are these brand new Needle Buddies DPN holders, designed specially for small needle sizes, that come in a variety of adorable animal shapes. They are squeezable and soft and stretch comfortably to fit various needle sizes.
Hope you enjoyed seeing this peek at the brand new goodies in my shop! I have been listing new stitch marker sets during April and will continue to roll out new designs for the whole month of May so watch Exchanging Fire for new fun stuff!
