Did you know my shop always has coupons available? And did you know know that you don’t even have to know what they are to use them?

The craft fair was yesterday and to keep it simple, I’ll just say it was disorganized and not very many people were making sales. Traffic was so-so, and several people commented to me that they would never spend money at something like this. It was just not a good day. After all that, today I decided I needed a little retail therapy. There were several good coupons in the apps for both Joann’s and Michael’s, so I decided to visit both of them. This is what I came away with. Joann’s Caron jumbo skein with a 60% off coupon – $5.99 (reg. $9.99) RHSS jumbo skein with a 40% off coupon – $4.79 (reg. $7.99) 8 regular skeins of RHSS with a 30% off coupon – $2.44 each (reg. $3.49) 2 Big Twist value at 25% off – $2.39 each (reg. $3.19) Total savings $17.18 After that I decided to go back to Michael’s and got this stuff. Michael’s 3 skeins Craft Smart with 20% off coupon – $2.39 each (reg. $2.99) 2 skeins Caron Simply Soft at 2 for $5 & 20% off coupon – $2 each (reg. $4.49) Impeccable BIG! on sale for $7 and 20% off couponRead the rest…

Guess what? You don’t have to fiddle with entering coupon codes any longer in my shop. When you check out, all coupons you’ve met the requirements for will be applied automatically! So that 18% off of everything coupon? Boom! Yours! No code required! You bought brick stitch earrings? There’s a little extra savings for that too! I’m not going to tell you what all the coupons are, but you could save big without even trying. Why not click through to the shop and have a look around? I’ll be adding a few more items in the next few days as well.Read the rest…

Hello friends! Over the last few weeks I’ve made some changes. If you’ve been to the site recently, you’ve likely seen the biggest ones right away. The most noticeable change is that I changed the way the website and shop look. I decided to go with an unmodified theme that was made especially to work with my shop software and the result is pretty good. The second biggest thing that changed is I removed all of the graphic design portfolios from the site and am focusing purely on the shop aspect. I’ve also redone the menus to better focus on the shop and make it friendlier both on computers and on mobile devices. I haven’t been doing much graphic design and to be honest, the laptop I current have is awful and makes it nearly impossible. Less stuff = simpler to navigate. The third thing, and this might interest you if you intend to place an order, is I got out my postal scale and I weighed almost every item in the shop and re-calculated shipping rates by the half ounce. What this means is you will get the absolute lowest possible shipping rate I can afford to give you.Read the rest…

Just a quick blurb here tonight for you. I spent some time this morning taking photos of and adding some items to my shop I somehow missed adding before. I know you blog subscribers see my new posts, but I don’t think that new shop items are sent out in the same way. Pop on by the shop and have a look! I’ve added new knit and crochet, and new jewelry items with probably more to add over the weekend. I literally have so many items I sometimes miss adding a few. The newest items display first, so you don’t even have to go far to see them. Just click on Shop! I also got super lucky and the price dropped on the ukulele I wanted so I was able to order it! I’m so excited for it to arrive! Shipping estimates say about a week, but I’m super hopeful that it will arrive sooner. I can’t wait to start learning to play. I’m still hoping to make the sales I missed out on last Monday though and I have some other people very interested in some other items. Fingers crossed I make all the sales and then I canRead the rest…

As some of you might know, I do surveys online for money. A lot of the companies pay out in gift cards instead of by check or PayPal, and yesterday I received my $50 Michael’s gift card in the mail. Obviously this meant I needed to go to Michael’s and see what I “needed.” I went in thinking I’d look at beads, yarn, clay stuff, and look for a box and bobbins for sure for my horribly messy embroidery floss collection. I came out with beads, yarn, a paintbrush, and some embroidery floss. My total was just under $50 and I was able to get almost everything on sale, plus use a 40% off one item coupon. That blanket yarn is going to become a blanket in the near future! I can’t wait to get started! I also wasn’t completely sold on the Viva yarn, but it knits really nicely, is machine wash and dryable, and it becomes a lot softer after washing. Its definitely growing on me, though it isn’t the softest. The Sashay yarn… I saw this YouTube video and I had to give it a try! And check it out! It turned out awesome and you can buyRead the rest…
