It’s giveaway time! Ends November 20

Lots of giveaways going on over on my Facebook group.  Simply scroll down and comment on any or all of the giveaways to enter to win.  Winners will be chosen on November 20, 2016.  Good luck!

Sorry to those of you not on Facebook.  This is the best platform for me to reach the most people at this time.

Time to prepare for the holidays!

order earlyIt’s that time of year again.  Summer is almost over, and school will be starting soon.  Then there’s Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  These are all wonderful crafting opportunities, but they’re also the reason I get really busy this time of year.

I would like to encourage you to plan ahead and get your orders in early this year.  My busy season seems to start earlier every year.  I’m stocking up to be prepared for all orders big or small.

Usually by October I have to extend the order preparation time from 5 to 7 business days to 7 to 10 business days.  I hate to do it, but it’s necessary in order to get everyone’s order filled in a timely manner.  This extension lasts until around February or March.

To help you stock up, there are 2 active coupon codes:

HAPPY2016 – save 10% off any order
BULK25 – save 25% on any order over $100 US
Happy crafting!
