Crochet Away!

Even with the excitement of my impending departure to London, I am crocheting my little heart out.  It seems my customers (new and old) have realized I’m going away for a little while, and I’m receiving orders for my crochet hats left and right!.  I’m always on the look out for unusual crochet hooks and found the ones below on a site called Simply Art. The hooks above are hand carved in India; I think they’re simply gorgeous! I’ll be ordering a set when I return.

I’ve completed quite a few orders today and I’m pooped!

The Elves Have Been Busy…

Hi Dahhlings! It truly has been a very busy last few days, so busy, that I never got a chance to write my last-minute shopping guide among other blog projects.  The collage above should explain why I’ve been MIA! It’s been a pleasant problem to have, I truly enjoy creating elegant items for my customers, and this time of year is especially busy.

I hope you’ve gotten all of your gifts, decorations, delicious food and all the other important goodies for the big day. 2 days to go!!!

If you haven’t gotten your gifts yet {tommorow is Christmas Eve!} I suggest you take yourselves to the nearest supermarket or drug store, and buy some of those well-known gift cards! Itunes, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, anyone?

And remember to always tell yourself…

Shop Til You Drop & Small Business Saturday…

In Daily Musings on November 23, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Well now that you’re 10 pounds heavier and possibly a few hundred to a thousand dollars lighter, due to Black Friday shopping,  I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving Day; giving thanks for your family, friends and where you are at this time in your life {I hope it’s a good place}.

Personally I don’t get sucked into the Black Friday shopping hype, in my opinion its major publicity in overdrive by the big retailers; I just truly prefer to shop in the comfort of my own home online, or go out to the stores when they first open on a lovely Saturday, and not be crushed in a wave of people pushing and shoving to get that “As Advertised” item.

If you were able to procure that special item you’ve been coveting, good for you, it’s nice when you get that special something for yourself or as a gift for someone else at a really good deal.

Tomorrow, November 24 is Small Business Saturday, and we small businesses count on you, especially at this time of the year.  So before you spend all of your money at the big box and high-end retailers, please give us small fry a thought, the beautiful, handmade, vintage and one of a kind items you can find from us are second to none.  If you have a small business you’d love to promote, either leave the name of your business in the comments section of this blog or leave your info at my Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/maylanascloset.

You can visit my Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/maylanascloset ~ I hope to have more new items uploaded by 2pm tomorrow… See you there!

This beautiful twinset will be available tomorrow 11/24 {around noon} in the Maylana’s Closet Etsy store. Brand new from Portobello Road, London
