7gypsies Library Drawer - My Completed Project

It isn't too often that I share my work here on the blog, but I'm kinda excited about what I
did so this time I will.

My dear friend and scrapping buddy Cathy is gonna be a grandma soon. For those of you who have entered the grandma/grandpa zone, you know that there is nothing quite like it. So I made her a gift. Cathy has an extremely busy schedule so I made this library drawer set for her so that she can just put her printed pics in it, put a card with notes with the pic and be done.

I've shown a couple of the pics here, but you can see all the pics of the project here

That's what I know today. My October Afternoon shipment will be at the door this week so watch for some of that goodness soon and I am adding new product every every day.

4000 sale still in progress with some new items added.

Thanks for being such great listeners as I bragged a little today.

4000 is so much better than 3000

Congratulations. You should all be so proud. Look what you've done. You have grown my business again. So little to do with me and so much to do with all of you. The only way that I can think of to thank you is to

drumroll please


Because you are my blog followers (and my favorites, but don't tell the other kids that) you get first shot at the deals available. There are now over 40 items with special pricing at Some are old friends with improved pricing and some are things that I have been saving for an occasion just like this. There are over 500 total items on the site so take your time and browse on through.

In addition to the posted sale prices, you, my loyal blog followers, also get the following:

  • buy any 5 items from Queen and Company (felt borders or bling in any combination) and get one free. Please do not put the free one in the cart. I have a stash I will be fulfilling from. Please just put multiples of 5 in the cart for this deal.
  • spend $10 on Jenni Bowlin items and get a fabulous 4x4 inch chipboard book free. Again, please do not put the chipboard book in the cart, I will automatically add it in for you.
  • to the first 8 blog followers to buy anything from SEI's lines (6 total items listed), you will get a 6x6 paper pad (my choice of product). Again, don't put your freebie in the cart, I'll put the paper in for you automatically. I only have 8 to give away so don't be left behind.
  • spend $10 or more on Cosmo Cricket items and get 2 yards of purple velvet scalloped ribbon from Cosmo Cricket. The ribbon is a perfect match for the new lines.

Queen and Company offer is unlimited - you will get one free for every 5 you buy. Buy 20 get 4 etc. Jenni Bowlin, SEI and Cosmo Cricket offers are one per customer.

Everone ordering at least one 4000 Sale item will get 1 yard of free ribbon and one holiday clear stamp, either Christmas or Halloween included in their package.

Sale runs until quantities run out but quantities of some items are less than 5 so if you think you want something, best to shop early.

As always, excess shipping charges will be refunded.

International buyers, convo me with a list and I will estimate your shipping for you.

Something missing? Saw and item before and now it is not there? Ask. It may be hiding somewhere in the great Etsy closet.

Thanks again to all of you for your support, encouragement and purchases. You make this little dream of mine so much fun.

Lookie Lookie

Ok, so here's the thing. One of the things that people do on Etsy is offer their 'view of interesting things' in the form of a Treasury. People who put these collections together, do them around a 'theme'. It has been a great month for itsalwaysfabulous in Etsy treasuries. I have had my victorian scrap birds, shabby French stamps, bingo cards, itinerary stamps and a couple of other things selected to appear in Treasuries. It is so cool to see what my products have been featured with. My shabby French stamps were featured with a chair covered in script fabric and clothespins stamped with French postcard writings. My bingo cards were featured with a whole collection of other Bingo things - some vintage and some new. My itinerary stamp was featured with some of the coolest travel stuff on Etsy. If you have a minute, find the treasury section on Etsy, type in a search keyword and spend a few minutes looking at some excellent collections of stuff. Start here:

In other news, I have 3999 sales. You know what that means......A SALE!

Starting Monday the 13th, there will be 40 items on sale, some favorite items at reduced prices and some brand new things I have been saving up just for this sale.

You never know what will show up. You'll just have to stop by and check it out. I'll be sending out more information soon.

Have a great weekend. Enjoy the great fall weather.
