Sewing and coffee and Otis Redding Christmas jams are the best combination .

Don’t forget 5 cans of nonperishable food items for the HANDMADE HOLIDAY MARKET ! Food drives rule ! AND just for you, all of our handmade goods are under $100 on Saturday ! W H A T ? !

Our new intern Dallas spent his evening casting spells and making potions while we slaved over the sewing machines . . . (He might be fired .)

Oh the LUMBERSMACK ! A little love for our dear friends over at FREAKER USA . A great gift for the lumberjack in your family . (Don’t play, we all have one .)

With the Handmade Holiday Market only 5 days away. (gasp!) We have a lot of work to do. I really feel like the only way to start this night was with Courtney’s mom’s chocolate chest pie and a cup of coffee.

I’m trying a lot of new designs with raw leather and no lining I’m excited about.

Miss Courtney went to see Future Island tonight but, she left me little organized stacks of to-dos.

There’s always time for a sharpie tattoo.

AND new business cards!! A very talented little lady is designing them for us. YAY!

so much to do . . . so little time. . .
