I gotta say, my Starbucks has the BEST customer service. I left my name and # with them asking them to call me if they decided to sell their Christmas decorations and looky here, I’m gettin’ ready for Christmas 2008:
Yep, they called me. Everything was $5 except the big tree. It was FREE. The fact that these are made with paper is so ME. Even though I just purged 80% of my stamping stuff and gave it to a friend. My first love is still fabric. Hmmm…maybe Starbucks will add some fabric to their decorations next year? One of these wreathes is going to Cindy. She’s the one that noticed them in the first place. Happy New Year Cindy!
Now speaking of customer service, I’ve had a couple of patterns returned to me (due to post office errors) since I’ve started Craft Apple Creations and each time they look like they’ve been run over by a truck. Does anyone know if this is this normal?
Now on to 2008. I’ve decided I’ve got to get organized. I’ve somehow let myself think I can do it all and this is just not possible. Instead of starting 4 new things, I really need to just focus on one at a time. Having my fabric laying all over the floor doesn’t help things. You see, I need to see my fabric. I need to walk by it and get inspired and the floor (or the ironing board, or the back of the couch) is the only way I’ve managed to do this until now.
I found this handy magazine rack that I can hang my fabric on, especially those fat quarters, no? I put it up on Jan. 1. So I guess it could just be a reflection of what’s ahead. My sewing room really isn’t a disaster, but I could spend some time organizing in there. When it’s clean I’ll see if I can get the guts up to post about it.
And aren’t those metal numbers great? Yep, I did some shopping over Christmas break. :)
And I noticed that this craft organizer is on sale. (1.7.08: just noticed that it’s now sold out. Any commission PB would like to give me for helping sell this product would be appreciated, thanks! ;)) It’s a lot like the one in this post that several people asked about. So I’m not trying to tempt anyone to shop if they shouldn’t, I’m just passing the word along. Now back to the metal typography. I’ve been wanting to put the word “Welcome” in my entryway for about a year now. The chip board letters just didn’t work out for me. So even though it’s not all that crafty, I’m posting one thing I got done this week.
Happy New Year!
