Thursday is going to be really important to my ever growing Etsy shop!
I received an email about a week or two ago from a woman that saw my shop and loved my infinity scarves. She told me about her blog and how she and her husband are trying to raise money to help with their adoption fees. In order to help with the cost they were asking some shops if they wanted to donate goods that they could auction off. I couldn't say no. Without hesitation I sent in some stuff that I have been working on. I hope it helps out in some way.
Auction starts on Thursday and there is so much stuff to look at and bid on. Or you can donate any amount if you just want to help out without bidding.
Then when I was checking my mail today I get more great news!
The fabric shop where I get my fabulous yards of fabric for my infinity scarves will feature my shop on their blog!
Please check it out here!
The blog offers patterns, sewing ideas and features a different shop that uses their fabric.
I love the fabric store since the material sold is so soft and wearable. They are always updating with new stuff!
So if you can check it all out!
I am super excited and I will keep you posted.
All my love,

I love Fall! I love the chilly days, apple picking, hot chocolate, and sweater weather.
Most of all I love going to the renaissance faire. It was as always a lot of fun but even more since it was my boyfriends first time going.
We went to the faire in Tuxedo Park, New York. The faire runs from early August to the end of September. Hopefully you guys come around next year it's worth the drive.

Gabriel's favorite was archery which for never trying it; he was pretty good. 7 out of 12 arrows on bullseye.

My favorite part was getting my kiss at the kissing bridge at the end of the day.
All the best,

I have been working on a new way to update and improve my packaging when it comes to scarf sales. I have been trying to streamline but at the same pretty-fy (new word) how the scarves are sent.
Here is what I came up with:
The hard part at the moment is the lack of space in my room to store my items for packing and mailing my scarves. So since I have no proper work area I work on my bed. Either taking pictures of new scarves or when I get sales using it as added workspace for putting it all together before mailing.
It's not the most ideal solution but I am working on that. My ultimate goal is to find a salary teaching job with medical benefits (You would be surprised how many private schools don't provide medical). So I can move in with my boyfriend in a two bedroom apartment. A two bedroom place would be great as the extra room can give me an awesome office/ work area for both my store, crafts and teacher stuff. And maybe he can have room for his office/ tv show work area heehee.
All the best,
