I had some plans for the weekend. There were several holiday projects I planned to work on and write up to share with you. However, all that changed when I arrived home from my volunteer day at the high school to find my husband standing in my kitchen. That might not seem like a big deal, except for the fact that he’s been almost 3000 miles away at the FBI academy in Virginia. He left on September 29th and I wasn’t supposed to see him again until December 13th, when I fly there for his graduation. He found out he was going to have a four-day weekend, so he bought a plane ticket 3 weeks ago and kept it a surprise all this time. I nearly fainted. Needless to say, not much crafting got done the last couple of days.
Instead, I want to fill you in on what’s coming up in my Etsy store. If you’re planning to place an order for Christmas, this is info you’re going to want.
I will be holding a Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend sale. It will begin at midnight on Thanksgiving and end at midnight on Monday. All of the “Ready to ship” items in my shop will be 15% off, with no coupon code required.
As a little extra thanks to those of you who follow me here at my blog, on Facebook or Twitter, I will also share a discount code for an extra 5% off, which can be stacked with the sale I mentioned above and used on custom items, which aren’t otherwise on sale. I’ll reveal that code the day before Thanksgiving, and it will be available to use during the same time frame as the sale.
Another bit of info I want to share is my shipping deadlines for Christmas delivery. They’re coming up fast, especially for international shipping.

Last, but not least, I’ve teamed up with Sew, Mama, Sew to participate in their Handmade Holidays series. Visit their blog on Wednesday, November 21 (the day before Thanksgiving), to enter to win a $50 gift certificate to my shop! Don’t worry, I’ll remind you again that day so you don’t miss out!
I have to say goodbye to my husband again for another month this morning, so I’m sure you’ll understand if my sewing machine and glue gun stay cold for another day.
