Do I dare make a new commitment?

I always have good intentions when it comes to keeping this blog up to date... so should I try again this year? Last year was quite a stressful one and so I truly have an excuse. I know many of you know that my husband was dx with a form of incurable blood cancer last year. He underwent a stem cell transplant last summer at Vanderbilt and is doing well. It was difficult but I find that when you have no choice in life it is much easier to bare. My two daughters are taking the new changes so wonderfully. My oldest left for college in the fall and it has been a daily struggle for me not to pine over missing her constantly. My youngest is a senior and knowing she will be going off to college is always in the back of my mind. Both girls have difficult decisions to make since they do not want to be to far from home in the coming years. More on that later.... So yes, I will make the commitment to blog more in 2012.

On a new subject, made some new pouches yesterday and will list in my shops sometime in the next few days. This one is a Japanese import fabric that my wonderful zipper supplier Zipit send to me within one of my many zipper orders. So sweet of her--- too cute huh?
If you are in need of zippers- she is wonderful to buy from with super fast shipping too :)

A few 2012 Pay it forward Pouches

I decided to re-open my shop a few days early to offer a few end of the year Pay It Forward pouches to my loyal customers. It will be a New Year in just a few days and I can not think of a better way to start 2012 but with a Huge Thank You to all of you who have been such faithful buyers -- so I figure if you see these PIF's then you must of been keeping a watchful eye on my shop while I have been on ENJOY and thanks :)
I will restock my inventory slowly within the next few days, if you want a specific item that is not yet listed please feel free to contact me.
The current PIF Pouch right now in my shop.

Serious sewing room makeover

Due to various reasons beyond my control it was time to have a sewing room makeover. Mainly to streamline and downsize my area.
I do like the changes and plan on keeping it as organized as possible in the coming months.

2011 coming to a close

So maybe with 2011 coming to a close, 2012 will bring a more settled and less stressful time. Between my husbands stem cell transplant at Vanderbilt this summer for his Multiple Myeloma and my oldest daughter leaving for her Freshman year at college, needless to say it has been a very difficult year. My youngest daughter is a senior and is making the final decision where to go to college, but she knows she wants to be close to home, which I am very grateful!

So my Etsy shop will re-open on New Years day and my other website shop will have its grand-opening Sale starting on New Years day too.
Here are the details for those wanting to take advantage of this great sale:
NEW YEARS DAY 2012 Grand Opening Sale - 25% OFF my entire shop. To celebrate the opening of my new website, use coupon code:GRAND25 at check out for these wonderful savings. I will start increasing inventory of this shop a few days before so if an item is currently sold out- no worries just check back closer to GRAND opening SALE date!
So I can say I plan on being better about my blog this year but I can make no promises. When Sales keep me busy then blogging becomes 2nd place. BUT I will try-- really!
