Just a quick reminder: there's only one week left if you'd like to make a purchase from my shop and have 50% of your total go directly towards the fundraiser being held for my friend's husband. They have thankfully received a partial diagnosis. So while he is still unable to work (he was self-employed) and may not be able to do so again (at least in his previous line of work) he has been able to start very slowly down a very long road of treatment. If you use the code BEESBUZZ at checkout you'll receive 10% off your order (savings on some goodies for you!) and again, half of everything (including shipping) will go to the fundraiser. Some things have already been snagged, so grab it if you're interested!
Also--there's only a few days left to enter my blogiversary giveaway--$25 to Fabric.com. See this post for all the details. You're leaving me the most delightful comments, by the way.
Want to make some adorable pressies that are quick and simple? Michelle Patterns (formerly known as Keyka Lou Patterns) is having a great sale right now. The patterns are well-written, go together quickly, and really look nice. Or you can have a look at my pal Jane's Etsy shop. She's got some great patterns for sale, too. If you want to give a handmade bag/purse/pouch/etc. to someone special this Christmas, the prices at these sites are reasonable, the results adorable, and the effort needed not ridiculous.
Time has been a bit short of late--I apologize if I haven't responded to your comments. I read every single one, and try to reply to as many as I can. If I haven't replied please know it's just due to a big fat case of the busies that I get hit with every year around this time. I do appreciate the visits and the time it takes to leave a comment.
And finally, here are some flowers. Just because. They're for you :)
