Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Let the Shopping Begin! Go! Now!

Or wait, are you already done? I realize that as far as Black Friday shopping goes, I might as well be posting this on Saturday since it IS already 8:00am CST and most people are back home in bed already!

But, that's actually a great place to be because now you can start your online shopping snuggled up in bed or on your couch in your pajamas and with a hot cup of coffee. Or, if you are me, a glass of diet coke on ice (no judgements please). There is no place I would rather be than snuggled up on the couch with with my little guy and my puppy dogs, watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and starting my shopping online this morning. But sadly, Boo! So I guess I am going to have to start my online shopping this morning with an ice cold diet coke from my office. Which, I bet my money spends the same from here. :)

Now, on to the good stuff! There are two AWESOME handmade shopping events taking place today, Stephanie at Somewhat Simple is hosting her Holiday Boutique event and Mandy at Sugar Bee Craft Edition is hosting her Sugar Bee Shops event as well!

I am participating in both and am offering a 15% discount on all items in my shop, just use promo code HOLIDAY when checking out! You really must check out all the shops participating, over at Somewhat Simple each vendor is offering a promotion, either a shop discount or a free giveaway with purchase!
