Saturday Sale

Today I have this wonderful steal posted on Etsy:
Beatrice Dream from Michael Miller $4.50 per yard

I enjoy Etsy and all the talent within the website. I briefly mentioned my struggle with eczema before. I bought this today in attempts to soothe my skin. We'll see how it works in a week or so!

You don't want to miss this!

Hi all!

The thing is... I've been super stressed lately. Between looking for a teaching job, struggling with money, battling eczema flare ups, being alone (at least Monday-Friday), and filing taxes for the fabrics ... I have little energy left.

I have decided to have a blow out sale and get rid of as much inventory as possible. Next week, starting Monday, every fabric will be selling for $6.25 per yard! That's right! Even flannel and home decor fabrics.

Until then I will be picking one or more fabrics a day and selling them for $4.00 per yard. How fantastic is that?! Today I have listed Patty Young's Gothic Flower for $4.00 per yard. That's insanely cheap!

I hope everyone is doing well.

Yes, I have been MIA

Hi all! I'm sorry I have been out of the loop lately! Fabrics are so time consuming and I tend to easily get stressed when I didn't make enough money to pay the wholesalers. My response to this ordeal... run and hide! It's a bad habit. I wish I could be one of those people who sees an issue and faces it head on; however, I am usually just the opposite. When things get rough and tough in my world... I hide!

I've been working two serving jobs, juggling house responsibilities by myself (since my boyfriend has been traveling A LOT, and doing the book business. Each day is filled with a list or chores that never gets finished... I'm sure we all know what that feels like.

Anyways, I'm back with the fabrics. I recently replenished my supply of Amy Butler's Full Moon Polka Dot in lime, cherry, and tangerine. I also have the Wallflower in Cherry. If you're interested please convo me. I am aiming to list those fabrics on Wednesday.

How were the holidays?!?!

Stay tuned for more from me!

Mondays Mondays

Mondays are always dull and seem to never end. I wish I had pictures to show you; however, my camera is, for the third time) getting fixed by Best Buy! It's so annoying! Anyways, today I took cinnamon rolls into work and made a few people very happy! This is want you HAVE to try with leftover cinnamon rolls:

1. Put it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.

2. Top with ice cream! Almond Mocha Fudge is to die for!

Books Books Books

So when I said I had A LOT of books in the garage... I meant A LOT... Take a look. The line of books in the front acted as a barrier for my puppies. They sit in the garage with my while I sort through this mess!

I've been practicing sewing with Brother (I named my sewing machine Brother). We've been making a lot of pillow cases! My real brother, Michael, used to have a comforter with a houndstooth black and white print. I always thought it was so ugly, but he loved it. A little bit ago a saw Paula Prass' Houndstooth material and bought a bolt of it so I could make Michael something. I made him pillowcases! haha :] Simple, yet unique, I know he will be excited for them. I'm also making my boyfriend a pillow case out of this fabric. He chose it! How cute is he?

I've been practicing sewing a lot because soon MyFabFabrics is going to sell handmade goods such as bags and blankets. My roommate has agreed to help with the sewing. He's a sewing master and I'm a beginner. At first I will probably end up cutting and pinning while he sews... but we'll see.

Between 2 jobs, the fabrics, the books, and the puppies... I'm short on time. Boyfriend has the morning off so we're going to watch Grey's Anatomy for a little bit! yay!

Catch up Post

I know I've been delayed (story of my life...) Please check out the Fabric deals today here! I had a great week. Steven, my boyfriend, had a couple extra days off work. It was nice to spend some extra time with him. We hosted a puppy play date, went to Disneyland, ate at my favorite restaurant, Spoon House, and carved pumpkins! Steven used to have a book business. He sold used books on Amazon and was seeing some decent cash flow. He's showing me how to work the book system and our garage is full of books! I mean... hundreds, possibly thousands, of books! I need to get ahead with cash before this holiday season!

And by the way....

My boyfriend and I have been making a big effort to spend a lot of time together and do things that we've been putting off. Hanging out with our friends something we always seem to put off. Steven, my boyfriend, work long hours usually 7:30 am - 8 ish pm. After work he's been so tired we hardly go out or have people over. Things are changing!

Friday night we went to a BBQ. I tried to Hooka for the first time! It was interesting! The food was yummy and the company was delightful as well.

Tonight we're having a puppy play date! I will post pictures of that soon!

Tuesday we're heading over to DISNEYLAND! It's our first trip to Disneyland together. I'm so excited.

Oh! And I wanted a distraction for while Steven in in Japan for December and I found one! I got another serving job at Lazy Dog Cafe! It's a new restaurant in Santa Clarita that opens in December. As long as your dog is on a leash, you can bring your furry friends and eat on the patio with them! Lazy Dog Cafe will even cook your dog an unseasoned chicken breast for his/her dinner! How fantastic is that?
