Still Some First Dibs to be Had

Hey there!

Want to save 20%?!

There are still several fabric combos available for "first dibs" on a Super Mega Touch Screen Wallet.

These wallets make excellent gifts, and as of this posting I still have room on my pre-Christmas / holidays sewing calendar. You'll receive your wallet in time to give it as a gift, or keep it yourself and use it while you travel for the holidays.

Fall Fabric preview & vote, episode 1

Alright everyone, I need your help!

You know if I could, I would buy ALL OF THE FABRICS {all of the time},

but I have to try to narrow it down. I've managed to get from ALL OF THE FABRICS

down to 15 potential fabric combo sets.

I'll post 5 fabric combos a week, for 3 weeks, for voting.

Will you please, have a look at the combos, and leave me a comment or message me with your top pick{s}, OK? You guys are experts at this too!

Here we go, the first 5:

ask and ye shall receive

I'm always looking for ways to improve my wristlets and wallets, and your feedback is a huge factor in what I do!

You asked me for pen loops and clear ID pockets, and so I added them to the Super Mega Touch Screen Wallet!

Have a look:

The Last Leaf

I sewed up and shipped out my last open order today, leaving me with nothing on my sewing schedule, no orders, not a one, for the first time in 4 {5?} years.
Day by day, as I pulled each post it off of my schedule all I could think about was the O. Henry story "The Last Leaf".
If you haven't read it, you should.

I Just Want to Thank You {falettinme be mice elf agin}

My tiny little Mom-run business is chugging along, I think I can.... I think I can.... I think I can......

I must thank all of these ladies {*some who are also Mommies} whose businesses help keep my business running. Knowing I have their shops to count on to helps keep me sane!

thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

and the 2013 color of the year goes to....

.... emerald!

I have wondered before what is up with "color of the year".

Who are these people?!

Why do they get to tell us what color will be popular next year?!

So I asked the Google and Wikipedia:

wow, wait, December?

Hi there!

Saturday totally snuck up on me this week! {not a bad thing to happen, unlike wretched sneaky Mondays...}

Then I noticed that December just snuck in too.

Wait, what? Where, when?!

Reminds me of a quote from The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, "The days are long, but the years are short."

Touch Me

I have a new design I am thrilled to share with you!

I was looking for one of those arm bands you stick your phone in so I could wear my phone while walking, but all the arm bands I looked at were big, bulky, neoprene {yuck!!} and, say, just how exactly do you wear them in the winter? Inside your coat? Outside? {I walk outdoors}.
