Merry Christmas!!

Be sure to check where Santa is!! You can already watch videos of Santa delivering presents, he is one fast big dude. We have checked Santa's progress for years. My kids are too old now, but they really enjoyed it when they were younger. So gather the kids and go to:
NORAD Santa Tracker

Merry Christmas!! My daughter is downstairs singing "White Christmas" because it is snowing, and yeah, we're having a white Christmas. Hopefully the roads will not be too terrible and we can make it to my parent's house and home again safely today.

I have been having a wonderful time sewing things for my Etsy shop. It's really weird knowing that I have little pieces of 'me' out there all over the world. I always hope that whoever is out there with my items enjoys using them as much as I enjoy making them.

Speaking of my Etsy shop, thank you to everyone who has purchased from me. I really appreciate it. I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, I hope you all are able to spend time with your family and loved ones, and I hope you enjoy your presents (even if it's an ugly sweater or a rock hard fruitcake, just smile and pretend!!).

Look what I made... something without a zipper!!

No zipper anywhere. Shocking, I know. But oh so cute and cuddly!!

My husband took off work on Wednesday so we could shop. I wanted to start at the mall, then work our way back home, stopping to get anything that we didn't get at the mall. Well, to our surprise, the mall wasn't open that early. I (mistakenly) thought that the mall would open up at least an hour earlier than usual considering it IS the week before Christmas. But no, they didn't open until 10 am.

So we went over to JoAnn's to grab something for me. I wanted to try making some scarves using pretty fabric on one side and something soft on the back. I wasn't sure if I wanted minky kind of fabric, or chenille, or just flannel. Then I found this stuff - it's soft and cuddly and fuzzy and SOFT and cuddly and fuzzy... you get the idea. It's very soft. It was half price, and I used my 20% off coupon, so I got a great deal.

For this scarf I used all Amy Butler prints in pinks and browns. It is 5 1/2 inches wide and 60 inches long, and it was very easy to make. I see more of these in my future.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtledoves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!

On the 9th Day of Christmas...

I listened to Christmas music all day and slowly went nuts. I'm thinking I need to change my music selection. Some of these songs are just terrible. How does this stuff get released for public consumption? And the hip hop versions of classics is murder to the ears. 'Noel' becomes no-o-o-o-o-o-o-eh-eh-eh-eh-eh-llllllll. Like Randy Jackson says - "too many runs and it was all over the place, dog. It was just alright."

Back to my sale information. Day 9 - all Flat Bottom Zipper Pouches are now on sale. Normally priced at $10, $12, and $14, now priced at $6, $7, and $8. Order now to get them in time for Christmas!!

On the 7th Day of Christmas...

Mr. Computer Fix-it guy sends a 'message' to me via my husband: My computer is old, the hard drive is almost full, it needs more RAM, blah blah blah. (Like we didn't know this? We will be celebrating 8 years together in January. That's a long time in computer life, so I don't need dude talking crap about my computer.) I hugged my computer and told my husband to make the bad guy stop!! Gah.

Day 7 of my 12 Days of Christmas, Zipper Pouch Sets normally priced at $18.00 are now $10.00.

Yesterday's special $4.00 Zipper Pouches will continue to be available only for a short time. So get them while you can.

On the 6th Day of Christmas...

My desktop computer crapped out on me. I knew I shouldn't have been talking about getting a new computer to replace it. It probably hates me and did this on purpose just to show me who's boss. I love my computer. I want it back.

Meanwhile, I carry on the 12 Days of Christmas from the laptop. It's just not the same though. Sigh. I have marked down all of my $8.00 pouches to just $4.00 each.

On the 2nd Day of Christmas...

I don't have 2 Turtle Doves to give. But I am offering specials in my Etsy shop.

Today I am offering 5 different wristlets for the price of $5.00 each. These are normally priced $15.00 each, so this is a steal.

Wristlets are a great way to be hands free - just throw the strap over your wrist and off you go. I use wristlets myself, and I have made some for my daughter to carry different items such as her digital camera, Nintendo DS, and her Ipod.
