Well, folks. Today is the day. I will no longer be selling any more paper goods out of the shop. As of tomorrow, I will ONLY have my prints, jewelry and PDFS available.
So, if you were thinking about purchasing, but forgot, get them today!
I’m refocussing my efforts on more art making next year (more fabric designs, custom portraits and book illustration) and cleaning out the shop is prepping me to be more able to focus on what’s most important for me right now.
It’s all in the CLEARANCE section right now, so grab it while you can!
I’m sad to close out of this phase, but happy to move forward. Thanks for all your support over the years! It’s been good fun.
As we are redoing the kids rooms, we’re also clearing out the garage, closets, etc. and I’m needing to make more room in my studio. But it’s filled with fabric, random art prints, left over stationery, extra embroidery patterns…you name it.
I’ve run out of shelf space, and I need to make more room!
So, what I’ve done, is filled 30 Priority Mail boxes with:
- USA & INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTS:
- 10 fat quarters of both my OUT TO SEA and/or CHILDREN AT PLAY fabric collections
- 8 1/4 yard cuts of OUT TO SEA and/or CHILDREN AT PLAY fabric collections
- over 40 pieces of stationery
- 4+ Embroidery Patterns
- Random Scrapbook papers in the CHILDREN AT PLAY design
- A coupon for 10% off your next purchase
- A nice note from me:)
USA RESIDENTS ONLY:
- 1-2 random art prints, most likely out-of-print or signed and dated from a while back
- 2+ catalogs of my fabric collections
- random fabric scraps
This totals to over $100-150 worth in products!
But I’ve priced them at $60 each (shipping is included) and will invoice all international orders for the difference.
Note that Australia/Pacific buyers will have the chance to order later in the day.
I can’t promise what you will get EXACTLY (thus the reduction in cost) but I can promise that they are all going to be wonderful. Most of it is products I currently have in my shop, but there will be some things that are no longer available, out of print, or discontinued. Maybe even some hand printed scraps.
If you have something in particular that you would LIKE to see, feel free to mention it in the customer text box at checkout, but no promises!
And if these sell out, I think I’ll try and do another clearing out at the top of the year.
(PS: these will ship out on FRIDAY DEC. 7th, and will be shipped priority mail, so all USA residents will get them by DEC. 13th at the latest. All INTERNATIONAL shipping will be based on how long it takes through customs, and will be shipped first class on Dec. 7th)
(And PS: The ONE KINGS LANE has one more day left!)
TOMORROW AT 10 AM EST I’m going to be having a STUDIO SALE!
(I know my posts have been dominately about stuff to buy…but the truth is…I’m trying to get rid of stuff!)
I’m going to be selling flat rate mailer boxes full of left over Studio products…fabric, fabric, fabric, patterns, stationery, scrapbook paper, you name it. Products I haven’t sold in years, other’s that never made it to the shop, and products that I have now, but will no longer be selling any more! Mostly Sarah Jane products that I’ve been holding on to, but don’t have room any more. Want some?
But they are mystery boxes…meaning you won’t know EXACTLY what you will get…but I can promise you you are going to love it.
Come by tomorrow and take a peek of what’s going inside! Check back here in the morning! 7am PST/10am EST
Here’s another peek:
OK! Now back to the giveaway..….
Come and get some AMAZING quilts, pillows and aprons featuring the OUT TO SEA collection.
You just need to sign up for ONE KINGS LANE to see the event. It’s a great site. Promise.
My favorite items are all the decorative pillows with real vintage trims.
And then these canvas pillows with hand stitching….LOVE!
And the quilts are to die for. They forgot to open up the quilts to show the full design (oops!) but I promise, they are amazing. This one for instance, is rows of chevron, alternating with white.
These aprons are reversible, which I Love!! We have a few reversible aprons at home, and I think they are adorable.
They lovingly worked together with me while I designed all the products and they sewed them together….they turned out amazing.
What a treat! I’ll be shipping them from my studio with lots of love!
(you need an account, but it’s worth it! No Spam, etc.)
Oh wow. What a week it’s been! I’m still so overwhelmed by the response to The Portrait Project. I honestly had no clue how much enthusiasm there would be. Really.
It sold out in less than 24 hours (all the slots I had available for 2013) and there are a couple hundred on the waiting list. If I had known how popular this would be, I would have been a bit more prepared. Well, the truth is I care about getting everyone of you art work…but I’m kinda short on time and hands…so I’m still figuring out how to make that work. But good news is, I think I’m making a lot more room from artwork in the future for sure!
If you are on the wait list (you know, cause you emailed me) I’m going to be in touch shortly. But as it stands, I’m going to be doing what I can this year, and then opening it up again by maybe the summer, or more likely a year from now.
But thanks to all who purchased! I can’t wait to get started!
On another note, we have a few more things up our sleeves here that I’m super excited to introduce to you. So be on the look out. I think Friday I’ll have an announcement that will be super exciting. So stay tuned!
Love to you all!
Thought I should give you a heads up, so that you know what’s going to be going on in the shop this weekend!
And remember, I’m clearing out all of our paper goods, and won’t be selling them after Dec. 20th!
We’re going to be SLASHING our clearance (was 30% but now down to 60%) so do the math, and the clearance section is nearly free.
Happy Holidays! I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday weekend!
So, today is kind of a big deal. I have 61 more days until the shop will no longer carry paper goods! No more Iron-on embroidery patterns, folded cards, holiday tags, bookplates or journals.
This has been a hard decision (as I was having grand plans to add to this list of lovely things!) But, after a long (very long!) hard think, I’ve come to terms with the fact that at this time in my life right now, I want to spend more time with my creative self than my manager self. Lots of product=less time to be creative and come up with amazing and genius art all the time (truth) and I want to spend more time with my children and less time infront of a computer (more truth).
And since more things can’t exist in a space that’s already full, I’m clearing out.
So, as of today, all paper good items that will be gone by Dec. 20th are on clearance, and will be until they are all sold out! So stock up, cause I don’t have plans to bring them back any time soon!
It feels good to clear out, but do take care of them! It’s sad to see them go.
Thanks for all your support! It’s exciting to make changes and move forward. I’ve got a good feeling about all this.
Happy sale shopping!
I can honestly say I’ve been wanting to make this update for well over a year.
You know that feeling when you’ve gone through that closet in your house that never seems to be organized? and then you clean it out so well you feel like you could call Martha and tell her about it?
That’s how I feel right now.
So, there are lots of changes in every corner of this blog. But here are the biggies:
DIY, FREEBIES & COMMUNITY:
Now you can access all your favorite tutorials, Free Downloads, and whatever project or printable you need! This blog is growing into a place to access resources and I’m so excited to have a gallery of projects and free stuff! Horray!
I also created the blog so you’d have easy access to participating in the communities around your favorite products! Click around, and you’ll be able to get involved and inspired.
I’m bringing on only my favorite Sponsors to give you direct access to fabric stores carrying my fabric, amazing designers and other businesses that are sisters to this site. Please click over, and get to know them. They are all amazing. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact me here.

And see that cute heart at the bottom of each post? This is a new little thing that makes it easy to LIKE a post, if you don’t have time to comment! Just another way to spread the love:)
EASY TO FIND EVERYTHING
My biggest frustration with my last space was that it was basically hard to find anything. And I want to keep giving you great stuff! So now, more than ever, I’m super motivated to offer more tutorials, printables, and lots of great stuff! And, it’s super easy to find.
So, I’m going to sign off and let you click around. Get to know the site. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section! And holler if there are any trainwrecks.
