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.

Treasury Time! Handmade for the Holiday Treasury #5

Soooooo......I am not quite sure where the last week went exactly, but boy did it go quickly, and the next week is showing no signs of slowing down! I CAN.NOT.BELIEVE that Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I will be preparing a full traditional meal and I HAVE.NOT.EVEN.STARTED! Should I be freaking out?! Uh oh. Now I am starting to freak out.

But on to more fun shopping handmade for the holidays! Here is the lastest Handmade for the Holiday Treasury #5 I've put together on Etsy, this one has a lot of fun little gift ideas, but here is a sneak peek of course!

I will be back on Black Friday to post the direct link to the online boutique and the exclusive promo code you can use for shopping Sew Super Sweet, but you will definitely want to check out all the shops because most of offering similar promotions and/or free gifts with purchase!

Before I go, I really do need to get started preparing for tomorrow, I would like to take a moment to wish everyone a wonderful, a safe, and a thankful Thanksgiving holiday! Enjoy the day!
