Good morning my friends,
It is a perfect October morning here in Ohio. I've been up since 6:00 and I've got the windows and doors open and the quiet this morning is heaven. Except for the chatter of the birds at my feeders reminding me that they need filled, it's perfect. It's a little overcast and it feels like it might rain, which figures since I really need to mow the grass today! LOL!
I'm sitting here with my 2nd cup of coffee thinking about my sister Robin who passed away 2 years ago Friday. Missing her and remembering............wondering how she could possibly be gone this long. So much has changed in our lives and it always feels now like there is a piece missing ....... but she is never far from my thoughts and always in my heart. I love you sister.......
Over the past few weeks, some things have changed for me and I've made some decisions about Falling Star. I've decided to stop designing patterns. This was a hard decision for me, but one that I felt I needed to make. I love designing, but it's very time consuming and there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day anymore and I've fallen behind on so much. With a new baby coming in November and the holiday's just around the corner, something had to give. Retirement for me is probably still a couple of years away and maybe after I can retire I'll get back into it again when I have more time.
For now, I'll be selling my original designs on my Etsy shop as finished goods. I'm working on some things now that I hope to have posted in a week or so. And starting later this evening you can find my Halloween & Christmas patterns on Etsy for 1/2 off, for as long as my inventory lasts. I'll have all my other patterns on Etsy as well, a little at a time. If you buy 3 patterns or more, I'll throw in a pattern of your choice, free!
So in the midst of all of this I decided to have a couple of giveaways, to celebrate Halloween!! These are "surprise" giveaways and I'm only going to show you sneak peeks
Just leave a comment on this post and I'll draw the 2 winning names this coming Friday! Good luck!
In closing, I have a few of my Halloween decorations to share. I only have a few things out so far......at the rate I'm going, Halloween will be over before I get it all done! LOL!
As always, from wherever you may dwell, I wish you peace and wish you well.
