Time to get back in gear

So I just realized that it has been quite some time since we have updated our blog.

I suppose it stems from the disappointment of our first craft show, but that shouldn’t be an excuse. We’re still crafting, we just haven’t been doing quite as much as we had been, but I’m starting to get back into the swing of things. I did finish a large cross stitch that I had been working on for what felt like forever, and I’m on another one now that I started quite some time ago as well. I figured I might as well start practicing the art of finishing what I start!

I also came up with a good idea for a product today that I hope will be both useful and popular! I’m not quite ready to reveal it yet (still testing and refining), but hopefully it won’t be much longer!

Just keep an eye here, on our Facebook page, and on our Etsy store!

Almost there!

Crafty Christmas is almost here, and we are soooooo excited to finally participate in our first ever craft show! Not only are we excited for the show, but we are also glad to be helping Bighouse through this show. Bighouse has, and will continue to be a beacon in our community for those who are in the foster care system.

Since the show is right upon us, we thought this would be a good time to cover a few last minute details if anyone out there is actually planning on visiting our booth. First, we finally have a real logo which has been made into a semi-nice banner type thing. So, when you’re looking for our booth, just keep your eyes out for this banner…

Second, for those of you who spot the banner and stop by for a visit, remember the following:

  1. We will be able to accept cash, checks, debit cards and credit cards. We try not to discriminate against the various forms in which money can present itself.
  2. We will be taking orders at our booth! For each order we will need half of the payment up front, with the other half due upon delivery of the item.
  3. If you don’t see something that you would like, we are open to custom orders as well. Depending on the amount of orders we receive, and the current date, we may not be able to promise delivery of all orders in time for Christmas, but we will definitely try our hardest!

Lastly, we want to share a few “Previews” of items that we will have at our booth. You can click on the pictures to get a bigger view.

Oh, and I almost forgot. We have hidden the 10% off coupon (must print it out, or show it to us on your phone) for Crafty Christmas somewhere on our blog. It’s either in a previous post, or on one of the other pages, so good luck, and we hope to see you all tomorrow night! Enjoy these previews now!

Friday Feature – July 20th

After having totally forgotten our Friday Feature for the past few weeks, we decided to make up for it in a big way. We want to give you guys a HUGE opportunity by giving you a HUGE discount on your entire order! Some craft stores will give you a coupon to get 40% off one non-sale item, but today we want everyone to have the opportunity to get 40% off your ENTIRE ORDER!

If you’ve had your eye on one of our blankets, a pattern or some other item, today is the day to buy! Trust me, we won’t do something this big very often, so take advantage of it while you can. In order to get your 40% off, all you have to do is enter this code when you check out: FRIDAY40

That’s it! Just enter that code, and get almost half off your entire order! Just remember that this deal only runs for today, so don’t put it off!

Here it is!

The Friday Feature for June 22 is this wonderful Wolf/Dreamcatcher cross stitch piece. It was stitched by hand and is already matted and framed. Today only, this great piece has been marked down to $25! Yes, that’s 50% off the original price! This deal only lasts until 11:59 p.m. tonight… or until someone buys it, so if you want it, then NOW is the time to get it!
