Will Power

My first day back at work was incredibly painful.  I really enjoyed not working.  Or, rather, not working “for the man.”  Trust me, my vacation was filled with lots of hard work.

But that wasn’t the problem.  Being away from work meant being away from fabric.  And sales.  And what the hell everythingisonsaleandIwanttobuyitall.  *breathe*  Quilting cottons are 50% off and that never happens.  Clearance is also 50% off.

And I can’t buy anything.  Meh!  My sewing rooms makes me want to cry.  I’m not exaggerating.  I actually get teary-eyed when I think about tackling that mess.  The Hippy actually said to me, “If you start crying again, you’re fired.”  Seeing me so pathetic, a friendly coworker offered to bring her gay friend (her words) to whip my craft room into shape.  And I need it.

Good news: We have pants clothes hangers coming into work.  Which will be nice, because it will make more room in my drawers for all the skirts I’m going to make 😀

We haven’t had a good poll in awhile:

I Like You… I do.

I truly love my trips to I Like You.  I always enjoy catching up on gossip with Sarah and shooting the breeze with Angela.  They’re two rad ladies I feel blessed to have in my life, and not just because their craft sales tend to make me a fair chunk of change.

I stopped over today to drop off some ornaments for their holiday show and pick up cards to hand out to everyone I know (and if you’re reading this, and I don’t give you a card, you’d better head to the sale mentioned in that linked blog, or I will cry… seriously).  I was in the truck when I thought “Gee, I may never see these ornaments again.  I should take pictures of them.”  Hopefully I will never see these ornaments again, anyway.  I would like for them to sell!  So without further pomp or circumstance, I present to you… your dinner.  I mean, the ornaments.

I’m feeling more confident about my color correcting on this Mac.  At least my pictures don’t look completely fake anymore.  Moving on…

The star is my favorite, but the tree is growing on me.  Who doesn’t love a pink Christmas tree?  Right?

All four can be found at I Like You sometime around the Saturday after Thanksgiving when they are having their fabulous holiday party.  It’s the last party before they move locations, so I feel it’s necessary every cool kid in the world goes.  Or at least in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Yes, this post is a thinly veiled attempt to put off working; why do you ask?  Look, it’s really f-ing cold up here!  Cut me some slack!  Plus all I’m doing right now is cutting, and cutting is probably the most dreaded part of any sewing project.

And then the following Saturday….

Our weekends are filling up FAST over at Silver Pear Designs.

On Saturday, October 18th, 2008, we will be selling at the North Dale Annual Fall Craft Show.

We will have a great cozy special going on, which is only available at our shows, a TON of brand new cozy designs (30+), and we will have a lot of great cozies on clearance!

The sale will be held at the North Dale Recreations Center from 9am-2pm.

1414 N. St. Albans, St. Paul, MN. Hope to see you there!

Spring Cleaning

It’s that time of year where it’s time to shift gears.  Sure, it’s snowing right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start our spring cleaning around here, does it?  It’s time to whittle down old inventory so we can make way for the new stuff.

There is currently a sale going on at The Cozy Corset Cuff shop where old stock is $2 off.  It would be a real shame to see those great cozies expire before finding a loving home, wouldn’t it?

I plan on doing the same thing at Danger Kitty Designs, but I’m going balls to the wall.  I’m discounting every headband, including anything new I list.  The new “inventory clean up” price will be $8.  This means I have to get my act together and photograph and edit.  Pretty sure it will be worth it, though.

So head on over and find some great deals.
