Yes, friends, it's that time of year again. I will be selling at the RAC's Holiday Arts Festival. I've done this fair the past two years and have had such a wonderful time, and even though my usual partners in crime weren't able to share the booth with me this year I have found a couple friends to take their place. Errol of Metaphor Organic (Check out their new website, I did the photography!) will be there selling his delightful soaps, and my good friend Suzanne will be selling her beautiful hand-knit scarves, hats, and gloves. Come support local artists and have a great time! If you mention you are a reader, as always, you will get 25% off any of my items!
First of all, Happy Turkey Day to all my readers out there in blogland! In honor of our strange shopping tradition of "Back Friday" I am having a free shipping sale for all my readers, now through Monday night (as Monday has become "Cyber Monday", the online cousin of "Black Friday"). To get free shipping in my etsy shop just enter the coupon code blackbird when prompted in the checkout process. Happy shopping!
Happy How-Tuesday everyone! This week I have a funny chili recipe, shrinky dink buttons, and a magic trick!
I stumbled upon this hilarious comic that actually teaches you a yummy chili recipe too! Check it out here.
These buttons are adorable and I cannot wait to add some to an old shirt that is missing one! Here is the tutorial.
And just for the heck of it, here is a simple card trick to impress your friends! Learn it here.
