So I am almost too embarrassed to admit this (almost)…
I just realized just because it is one climate here, does not mean my etsy shop should reflect that. I was thinking it was silly to put scarves and such in my shop during the summer, but then I remembered, oh hey, in other parts of the world it may be cold right now. So having “seasonal” items in my shop all year round may not be a bad thing. *forehead smack*
*sigh* silly little revelations, right?
So I may or may not be going tag crazy… =)
Over the next week or so I will be adding a lot of die cut tags. There are already a few available, and if you feel you would like a different size or color, or even a shape I don’t offer yet, please let me know through etsy’s message system. (You can get with me many, many other ways, but that will be the easiest to keep track of)
I also got my glittery little hands on some discounted washi tape that I wanted to pass along! Right now you can purchase a set of two washi tapes for $5 and free shipping! Pick from 4 designs… http://www.etsy.com/listing/126893190
Happy Black Friday! Hope my American friends stuffed themselves with turkey, and the rest of the world had a good day…

Over at Etsy I’ve decided to do a sale on jeweled nose studs. I have created five listings for three jeweled nose studs at the price of two! (usually $4 each) https://www.etsy.com/listing/114812952/sale-buy-two-jeweled-nose-studs-get-one
I’m thinking about doing a sale Thanksgiving weekend, starting on Small Business Saturday and running through Cyber Monday.
Instead of changing the prices of all my listings, I’ll give out a coupon code and it will expire at midnight on Cyber Monday.
I won’t start on Black Friday, well, because I’ll be out at midnight on Thanksgiving and not back til the wee hours of the morning, then I will be serving dinner at my house Friday night. (New tradition a friend started, I like to go for the company and the laugh at the bargain fever, it gets crazy around here, not to mention last year I found a PS3 with a game for $200)
If you haven’t already, like my page on Facebook, I’m undecided if I’ll post the code there or both here and there.
Now I know, I’m usually nowhere to be found near the internet on a Saturday, I just happen to have some time to waste before I’m off on an adventure.
I made a new banner for my Etsy! It’s simple, but I like it. Please excuse the poor quality, it’s 760×100 pixels, and I stretched it so it was at least seeable. There is what I thougth was going to be a chevron quilt, but has actually been turning into one huge diamond, as well as one of the favorite necklaces I’ve made.
It’s a beautiful day already, but alas, I think it is going to be 90 degrees again. Michiganders aren’t prepared for such heat, we wilt. lol
After a nice catchup lunch with some girlfriends, I’m going to retreat to the air conditioning at my friend’s house and quilt the day away.
I might do some embroidering because I have a mini quilt swap that I’m waiting to hear who my partner is. =)
What’s on your agenda for this beautiful Saturday?
Here are some of the goodies I received from fire mountain gems, there are plenty more, just haven’t unpacked everything yet!
creamy dahlia rings
These pretty rings are for sale in my etsy shop!
I’m going to be making a Super Mario wallhanging and the hub is super excited. There is a super mario QAL going on, but I don’t like a few of the blocks. Some I will have to map out myself. If you’re interested in the Super Mario QAL, go to
First day of my Holiday weekend, I’m pretty excited. (I woke up a little too early, but that’s okay) For those of you across the pond (and beyond) It’s Memorial Day weekend in the U.S.
I have to cut some fabric to fill an etsy order, do some laundry, dishes, and make room for our new washer and dryer to come tomorrow!
Yes, I’m doing laundry before the new washer comes, because it will be an HE washer and our detergent is not meant for HE use.
A few of my friends are doing a square swap to make a friendship quilt, and we picked Blueberry Crumbcake by Blackbird Designs as our fabric. (It’s a Moda fabric…) Here are some of my tiny, million triangles, I’m doing a block from the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along Book.
On a whim this morning, I made an etsy treasury about non-white wedding dresses.
And here, is a lovely little beach coverup dress I picked up at Wal-mart for $5. I’m going to embroider on it to give it a little pop of color.
Ooooo! Sunday I’ll be taking pictures for a baptism and going to a Kurtz family picnic (at the old family farm). I’ll have to post pictures afterwards!
