Happy Tuesday, friends!
Well, the holidays are in full swing and I don't know about you, but I am already exhausted! November was all kinds of busy and December promises to be even more so. March must be one heck of a romantic, BarryWhite, get-it-on kind of month, because December yields us the largest crop of family and friend birthdays in all the land. Add Christmas and New Year's Eve into the mix, and you've got one heck of a strewn-out party. In fact, the poor husband shares his birthday with our family's famous "New Year's Eve Party". The very last day of the long year. By that time, people are sick of singing, wrapping gifts, smiling, blowing out candles and eating anything that comes on a cracker, platter or a toothpick. Bless his heart, he always gets the short-end of the stick... But enough about him.
Seriously though, I wanted to take a second before the holiday rush and thank everyone who has supported the Artfire Shop this year. I have had the best time designing, sewing, and selling my bags both in the shop and from the home studio. Business was better than I ever imagined and I feel blessed to have worked with so many of you. I'm not sure when I'll get to replenishing the store again, but I did want to share one of my new designs with you. Before going through the trouble of naming, listing and pricing the new bag I said to myself, "It's the holidays, why not give it away?" and then I said, "But, I love this bag, maybe I should keep it."And then I said, "No, someone will love this bag. If they don't want it, they could always give it away as a gift.." And then the husband asked, "Why are you having a conversation with a tote-bag?" Unto which I shook my head in disgust and let him know that it's a handbag, not a tote. Silly man.
So. would you like a free HAND-BAG? I'm giving this one away.
It is one of my favorite designs so far. I hope you like it as much as I do. If you don't like it, for heaven's sake DO NOT enter the drawing. If you DO like it, leave a comment below. I want to know 3 things. What two items are in your purse at all times and what is the weirdest thing in your purse right now. Be honest :) If you are leaving a comment as an anonymous person and want to be entered in the contest PLEASE list your real name or e-mail at the end so I know who to contact. You have until 8 o'clock this Friday to enter. BTW, if you win this little baby, you get to name her design for the store. Yay!!
I'm leaving the 1st comment as an example for the drawing. No, I'm not eligible. Or am I? I'll have to talk it over with myself and get back to you..... :)
Good Luck, Friends :)
