This time of the year I am just a little bit crazier than normal. I have been in “sewing mode” for months. Yesterday someone asked me if I was sewing. Why, yes, I am. Every morning about 3:30 you will find me with a cup of coffee either standing in front of my cutting station, at the ironing board or sitting at one of the two sewing machines that I have set up at all times. I sew until about 6am and then get ready for my real job. I don’t sew at night very often usually because I am bleary eyed not long after I return home in the evening. I crochet scarves at night. Right now I have lots of inventory in preparation for the Hazelnut deux (my small business) holiday boutique this weekend.

This is the first time I have joined forces with a lovely group of women who also craft and created locally. Too often I have found myself at “craft fairs” with vendors for large companies. I wanted to be part of a group that only featured real craftspeople and artists and I think we offer a great blend of creativity. If you live nearby, please stop in on Sunday afternoon!

On Monday, November 25th, I will be listing a significant number of items in my Etsy shop. Please check it out next week! If you sign up for my newletter (click HERE to take you to the blog site for Hazelnut deux) I am offering a 15% discount code in the Etsy shop on anything purchased after November 24th.

Now – back to the sewing machine!
