Black Friday Sale is ON!


Today is the day! I’m launching a Black Friday sale that will end on Monday, November 27th 11:59PM.

I’m offering 20% off everything (excluding some custom orders) in my lingerie shop, PLUS free shipping when you spend over $200USD.

In my sewing pattern shop, I’m offering 10%-25% off depending on the total value of your order!

All discounts will be applied at checkout, so there is no need for a coupon code. Sales are valid ONLY in my Etsy shops!!!

I know I told myself I would not, could not, would not allow myself to buy any fabric… but I’ve got my eye out for some nice pastel felt for making some christmas stuffies for the daycare kids, plus I already spent a small fortune at yesterday (cringe… I did not need half the stuff I bought!).  What are you stocking up on this Black Friday?

Halloween flash sale!

Lingerie, Sales, Sewing Patterns

Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s one of my most favourite times of the year. I love the costumes, scary stories, horror movies, candy, crisp fall air, the crunch of leaves underfoot… It’s just the best!

To celebrate I’m offering %15 off sleep masks… and….

20% off orders over $10 in my Sewing Pattern shop on Etsy (Etsy only!).

Enjoy this little treat!

I’ll be posting soon with some cute pictures of Izzy in her halloween costume. It’s a super cute one this year.

It’s my birthday… sale.

Anxiety, Lingerie, Sales, Sewing Patterns

Happy birthday to me… happy birthday to me!

My birthday really snuck up on me this year. I guess that’s what happens when you get older. Sigh…

33 has been a pretty good year. Well actually, it was difficult. 33 was the year I got help for my anxiety ‘issue.’ It’s kind of funny, because I am ending out 33 doing not quite so well, but during this year I’ve learned so many things about how to maintain my sanity. Most importantly I learned that I don’t have to feel like something terrible is about to happen all of the time.

On the bright side, I sleep now! And I very rarely have nightmares. I did have a bout of sleep paralysis/wake-up screaming two nights ago, but as a whole, my sleep is much better. However, my bouts of nightmares really make me feel like a crazy person. There is no nice way to put it. They are terrifying and the feelings linger for days. Actually, when I think of it, a lot of my intrusive thoughts as well as my dreams leave me feeling like, “a good/normal person wouldn’t have these thoughts. There is something wrong with me.” It’s not a good feeling to have, on top of the effect of the imagery and content of my dreams and intrusive thoughts. I feel embarrassed sharing this, but I know there is probably at least one other person out there who feels the same way!

My physical health is much better. I’m running 10k on a regular basis and planning on training for 15! On the downside, I’m finding that my mental health maintenance is lacking… I’ve really let it slip and it’s showing. My body images has also been not so good – this is a thing I still don’t feel I have a good grasp on. But as a whole, I am doing much better.

Life is full of highs and lows and lots of stuff in between. It’s the “in between” times that I have a hard time with, and summer is always one of those times for me. Things drag along a little more slowly, which I should enjoy, but I thrive off of the adrenaline rush of being busy (or of crisis). I’m trying… really trying to be ok with life just chugging a long.

Anyway, enough about me…

I decided to celebrate, I’d have a sale, and it’s going to be my BIGGEST sale of the year. Take 20% off all lingerie & sewing patterns with the coupon code HappyBirthday 20. Offer expires Monday July 3 at midnight!

I thought this might be a good time for a sale since it’s a long weekend for many of us, with Canada Day and July 4th in the US. This is a great opportunity to pick up a couple sewing patterns and work through my new swimsuit tutorials *wink wink*

And YES! I ate that giant brownie.
