Welcome…I am so glad you are here today. Let’s chat for just a minute.
I’ve shared here about the fact that much of my time over the past year has been spent helping my parents. It has been a labor of love but along the way I’ve had to make a few changes in my own life. I’ve had to figure out my priorities where my blog and online shop are concerned. I’ve had days where everything was so muddled that I didn’t know how to order things or what to do first. I had to take a long, hard look at where I was spending the most time and if it was financially worth it. I finally came to the realization (very reluctantly) that changes to my shop had to be made.
I loved the hours I spent sewing…but I was slow and everything took a long time. The obvious things to cut were the handmade home furnishings. So I stopped making pillow covers, table runners and aprons. I have tried to stock vintage tea towels and other small items. I also partnered with one of my best friends to offer our handmade clay tags. Our partnership has been amazing. We work on the designs together. I handle all the photography, marketing, packaging and shipping but my friend Connie creates the tags. We have both been overwhelmed by your response and are so happy that you like them.
About once or twice a week I get an email from someone wanting to know if I will be making my pillow covers with the phrases. Be Grateful…Be Thankful…We Gather Together…just to name a few. I made them from linen and the phrases were embroidered. Those little pillow covers were so popular but took soooo much time. I kept thinking there had to be a way I could still do them but streamline the process. I finally started to think outside the box and realized that I didn’t have to sew them myself. I looked and looked for a way to offer my designs…and found Society6. It’s an online market place for artists and designers. I submit my custom designs and they produce the products. There are many things about Society6 that made me decide to give it a try.
- The pillow covers are a well-made product available in three sizes. Serged seams, zipper closure, sturdy fabric and made in the USA.
- You can purchase the pillow covers with or without the inserts.
- I am able to offer tote bags and canvas or framed prints as well.
- There is no wait time. You place your order and it ships in just a few days.
- I can sometimes offer free shipping…which is a huge savings for you.
- You can place requests. If you have a special phrase or design I will do my best to make it happen.
I am able to offer free shipping on all orders placed by Sunday, October 11th at Midnight Pacific time. Just click HERE to activate the free shipping code. I actually just placed my own order and as soon as it arrives I will show you some pictures.
So that’s my big news. I am already working on Christmas designs and hope to have those available by the end of the month. I will be using all the signature phrases that I featured in years past.
Thank you for taking a look…and thank you for your friendship! Please let me know if you have any questions. Just leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
