Whenever November rolls around and I see the word ‘GIVING’ all the time, I always think it’s funny. Shouldn’t we be giving all season long? Yes, we should.
I know when the end of the year rolls around, I love to see what my year-end sales are so I know how much I can give to the Alzheimer’s Association. I give 10% of my sales, not profits, to this organization each year. It doesn’t matter to me if I’ve saved that money or if I haven’t, I head over to their website and donate and we just make it work! I just know I must give back to an organization that means the world to me. I know this organization is working hard on finding a cure for Alzheimers. I give in memory of my Dad. Honestly, when I was young, he wasn’t the greatest Dad around but he always provided for us. And, there were 7 people in our family! Can you even imagine? I never felt like I didn’t have something. Our needs were taken care of! When I got older, I could see my Dad’s heart… and it was good! He always made me feel like he was proud of me in my adult years… in my childhood years, not so much. But, I think he was dealing with a lot himself and he just didn’t know how to communicate unless it was abrupt. And to this sensitive, introverted, little girl, that was a difficult childhood. After he left his military career, he definitely became very self-aware and much kinder. I loved watching him interact with his grandchildren, especially my daughter. Boy, he loved her! I know he is in heaven watching her raise her own daughter and is beaming with delight!!
I want to give lots of money to the Alzheimer’s association this year!
So, let’s get to the information that’s super exciting!
I’m having a great CYBER WEEK SALE on Etsy. From November 20th to the 26th, I’m offering 20% all items, excluding clearance and customs, in addition to FREE domestic shipping on me! And, the best part of the sale is you don’t even need a coupon code to try to remember! Everything will just be reduced and when you check out, shipping will be free! How easy is that?!
Something to be aware of is that there is only one left of each color story! So, if you love a certain color story, you are going to want to snag that up during the weekly sale time! Below I have a sampling of what’s available. But, please go visit my Etsy store to see the full line of goodies!
I also want to let you know I might have been too hasty in telling you I was planning on closing my Etsy shop. My goal was to move all items over here to my website since I was the one driving traffic to my shop through Instagram. But, my husband is retiring this next spring, which means we need to find some health insurance and Etsy has a health insurance partner that looks very reasonable. So, I will keep you posted on all of that nonsense.
Please come back here to my website and watch for new tutorials on fun stuff we can make together! I’ve got a Christmas tree ornament tutorial coming soon! It’s an easy to make in an afternoon kind of project!
I’m excited to see what you all be purchasing for gifts this year!!
Thanks for following along! Vicki
