I had a fantastic opportunity to pick up some excellent stamps this week at excellent prices, so that means that you also get excellent stamps at excellent prices.
7 different clear stamp sets from 7gypsies - listed on their website at $14.95 the fabulous price at www.itsalwaysfabulous.etsy.com is $6.00. Does it get better than that?
I only have 6 of each style so don't hesitate. If you miss the sale, take a look at the stamps shown here and I can see if I can get more of those you may have missed.
Have fun shopping and start thinking about which friends you would like to send this email along to next week. Next Tuesday, there will be rewards for referring friends, so start making that list.....
I wish you all a FABULOUS week.

One year ago I had an idea. I thought that if I was careful in choosing my products and had good prices and great customer service, I might be able to sell a few things. I thought that people would appreciate a great selection without having to pay full price and not having to pay lots and lots of shipping dollars. So with my fingers crossed, I started my little shop on etsy.
One year later I am happy to report that the little concept has worked well. I have sold over 1400 'things'. All of you have made it possible for me to grow and have more things available for sale and stay at home with my dogs all day and look out into my yard and work real hard at something that I love doing.
So I would like to say Thank You for your orders, your support, your encouragement, your comments, your suggestions and all the excellent things you have done to make my little dream a reality.
Go to www.itsalwaysfabulous.etsy.com. There are 14 Anniversary Specials for you to find. There is Cosmo Cricket paper for $1.00, there are Jenni Bowlin buttons for $1.50, there are stamp sets for $3.00, there are 14 things for you to find and to love and to enjoy. Put as many different deals into the cart as you would like, but in order to be fair to all of you, one of each offer please. As I sell out of one offer, I will replace it with a different one so there will always be 14 Anniversary Sale items. I expect you will all be buying a lot, so I will be adjusting excess shipping charges back to you through paypal after I go to the post office.
While you are there, check out all the new Jenni Bowlin I will be listing today, brand new this week in addition to the new Tim Holtz stamps. Don't see something you want? Let me know and I will see what I can do about getting it for you.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for me this year.

OK, so those of you who know me know that I love old stuff. The junquier the better.
So during the summer, a friend and I go to estate sales. When we pull up to the curb and see that nothing has been cleaned and there is stuff all over the lawn looking like it belongs at the dump we have the same thought - "This is a hellhole. We will do well here."
Sometimes, however, we are pleasantly surprised when gracious and fabulous homes also provide treasures within our limited budged. Last week I ventured out without my friend to the estate sale of a former Ziegfield girl and the wife of a Corporate Mogul. She was a seamstress and kept every single pattern she ever used. She bought her trims and ribbon by the bolt and, apparently, zippers by the truckload.
I bought it all. Tons of patterns, boatloads of notions, spools and spools of trim and ribbon and, oh, so much more.
I have always wanted to have an etsy site with vintage finds on it and have been accumulating things to list on it for quite a while. Last week's influx of 'things' prompted me to get going.
Stop by and visit the new shop at www.whatsnottolove.etsy.com. If anything there interests you, mention at checkout that you are a blog follower and get free shipping.
Also in the news, the 9th is the one year anniversary of www.itsalwaysfabulous.etsy.com. Mark your calendars for February 9th. There will be a fabulous event for my anniversary.
Thanks for reading all the way to the bottom. I leave you with a valentine cutie.
