Taking a Break in Vegas!

I will be taking a short break from jewelry making - going to Las Vegas Nov 6-13 - see the lights, shows, maybe a little gambling, Hoover Dam...!

Both of my shops, jewelry and fabric stash, will remain open while I am away. Purchases made during that period will be processed and shipped shortly after I return.

Thanks, I'll be back in a couple weeks!

End of Summer Sale on Fabrics - Extended!

Just a reminder that I am running an End of Summer (EOS) Sale at my Fabric Stash shop and I have extended it through Oct 17!

Also, to make it easier to promote the sale, I am using a new Etsy application, Etsy On Sale. Check out my shop there - You will notice that original prices are red-lined and are marked down 15%. This will eliminate the need for me to do any refunds!

After the sale ends on October 17, then the Etsy application will revert the prices back to the original prices automatically.
