My puppies are already snoring, of course, because I was going to take a picture of my two “turkeys” for you. :P By now most Americans are trying to decide just how badly we want to wake up at 4am to go shopping. The temperature here in Chicago plus the fact that anything I buy will eventually need to fit in a suitcase puts me solidly in the STAY HOME category, although my father has already brought home that $200 50″ TV that was on the news with all the crazy people going crazy… so I won’t judge. But I just wanted to make sure you all knew just how thankful I am to have such a fun group of people supporting me and my business.
The distance from Bob is really hard right now, but he insists that I stay positive and I need to keep reminding myself that I’m lucky because when I finally move I will get to take all of you with me!
I’ve been able to do this full time for over a year now and that’s because of how enthusiastic you all are about each new pattern. Since I committed to this, I’ve not once had to consider giving up writing patterns. In fact, DUMD has allowed me to take a few weeks off when Bob visited, and a few more to visit him. Working from home has let me take care of my dogs and my mom and will allow me the freedom to eventually do this from Sydney. I can write a book if I want to, or perfect every zipper technique in every style of bag. But, I need to get there first!!
So, that bring us to BLACK FRIDAY!! ALL PATTERNS are 25% off for 24 hours, Black Friday Chicago time. I know so many of you have ALL the patterns and that is amazing. But we have a lot of new followers lately who probably missed Bob’s last minute “steal the site while Erin is in the middle of the ocean” sales, so if you haven’t stocked up, now is the time!! Every single pattern sold makes me squeal with joy right now! I will be keeping an eye on things here for the next 24 hours while I crank out the first few pages of the Takeoff Tote.
OOOH and I just got an email that RedBubble is 15% off with code: SAVE15 if you need T-SHIRTS!
