TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

Birthday Sale, New Creations and Teacher Gifts

Hi, all! I hope you are enjoying Spring so far. I have a few things to tell you about today.

1) In honor of my 35th birthday on Monday, I am having a one-day (give or take a few hours – I already started it) sale! Any order over $35 will automatically be discounted by 10%. You don’t need to use any coupon codes – the 10% discount will automatically be applied if the items on your order exceed $35. Enjoy!

2) If you are one of my jewelry-and-gift customers, you may have noticed that my website hasn’t been updated in about 6 months. I hadn’t made many things in that time, so it didn’t really matter from that standpoint. However, I have sold things, and I hadn’t taken them off of the site. So, this weekend, I went through all of my inventory and removed anything that is no longer available. In addition, I’ve begun adding some items that I hadn’t had a chance to scan in the past. Most of these items aren’t new, per se. They’re just new to my website. I do have some brand new items mixed in there, too. I’ve been on a creative kick lately and am still going… Here’s a link to everything that I’ve added this weekend:

69 items, as of this writing, and I still have a pile of barrettes and earrings to scan. I’ll try and get them uploaded sometime this week.

3) Now, don’t forget, it’s the end of the school year, your kids are going to want to bring in teacher gifts, and one thing teachers can always use is PENS! We’ve got plenty of unique pens available, from the fancy, Cross-style pens: (and mechanical pencils: ) to the simple everyday Stick Pens:

Just so you know, I usually pack orders on Monday nights, but I’m taking this one off and going out for dinner – I make it a policy to avoid work as much as possible on my birthday, LOL! I’ll get any orders that come in packed up on Tuesday night instead and out to you by Wednesday.

Have a great week!
