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.

Closer to goal and lots of giveaways!

Getting closer to my goal of $1600 for the GoFundMe campaign.  Thank you all so much.  There have been 20 donations so far!  Please consider checking out the campaign.  I’m offering some nice thank you gifts.  This GoFundMe is to help me stock up on craft eyes for the holiday season so that I can fill all orders that come in.

You can read/watch a video on my GoFundMe about why I need to do this campaign.  Basically some of my family members needed extra help from me over the past year, so now I don’t have the personal funds to put into my business.  Plus summer is my slow season, so there wasn’t a lot of extra business income to buy stock.  Kind of a perfect storm of sorts.  Once I get through this month and pay for this stock, things should be back to normal again.  Thank you for all your support.  Sharing this campaign on your social media helps a lot too.

Glow-in-the-dark Craft Eyes

Happy crafting!

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!

When I was out running errands yesterday, I stopped at a red light and looked over to see this:

Yes, I was in Bangor, Maine (what Steven King calls Derry in his books).  This is a Steven King tour van that takes people around to all the famous places in his books.

Homestead-wise this week I’m playing with the vintage scythe I got to cut my lawn and field.  It’s so much fun to use.  I’m also taking extra special care of my chickens since temperatures are getting into the 90s this week.  There’s watermelon in the freezer that I’ll be giving them later as a nice cold treat.

Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

Some pussywillows I found while walking my dog.  This was most of them.  I left some so I could find the tree again.  Hopefully there will be more!
