Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Well, as you read this I hope I will be tucked into bed recovering from a night of shopping. Yes, I’m one of those crazy people who LOVE to go out on Black Friday. I know there is quite a stir about the early starting hour {hello midnight shopping} of many stores this year, but I have to say I *think* I might like it better … I’ll let you know.

My mom is joining my sister and I this year … that’s what it’s really about … an excuse to be out with your favorite girls shopping and people watching at crazy hours of the day. I could *almost* care less about the actual deals.

To be honest, I’ll probably do most of my shopping online, later today and into the weekend.

One sale I have to tell you about is over at Erin Condren. Instead of a ‘Black’ Friday sale they are having a ‘Colorful’ Friday sale and offering 50% off several of their most popular items for 6 hours {6AM-Noon (PST)}!!
I know, I know … those very popular Life Planners you’ve seen around blog town are not part of the sale, but I’ll tell you … I think they are worth paying full price.

I’ve always had a desk calendar so I wondered if this would really be all it claimed. Uhm yes, my OCD, Type-A, anal-retentive self LOVES my life planner. It makes me so happy. Now I just need a cute cook book stand {thank you Jeannett for that idea} to properly show her off.

A glimpse into my crazy pre-vacation week

Pretty fun, right?

Speaking of fun, I’ve got a little promotion planned for Cyber Monday {11/28} to help make your shopping a bit more fun {savings & a free gift = fun, yes?}. I will be offering FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders AND a free “Happy Little Key Fob” with each order over $15.

So, come stop by the shop on Monday. I’ll have several new items listed {Oh Snap! Mini Wallets, iPad/tablet Gathered & Ruffled covers; mug rug sets} including this new camera strap colorway, Retro Holidays::

I’m so happy to have some red+aqua back in the shop. This iPad cover has been feeling awfully lonely.

Happy Shopping … tell me about your crazy Black Friday adventures or the best deals you spotted online.


  1. I’m not brave enough to head out shopping today…I’d have to find something I REALLY wanted. πŸ˜‰ So I’m just chilling out, listing new things in the shop & doing all the dishes Thanksgiving left behind. πŸ˜‰

    Happy Friday, Andrea!!

  2. We went out yesterday but at 7 am(with our girls). Can you believe I got them basically done and they were with us! Michaels had some great sales so I stocked up on 1/2 off arts & crafts sets for one and Melissa & Doug foodie sets for the younger one. And I got an amazing organizational (lazy susan type) caddy for my studio for me. Woohoo!Everything was 1/2 off plus my 30% off coupon. Love that!

  3. Hi! I found you through 30 days – I am also a contributor there :) I loved your getting started in sewing post. I am pretty terrible at sewing, so I look forward to your posts – help a sister out! Can’t wait to see more from you. I love the look of your blog and am excited to have found you. Have a great week!
