Shop Update: A Week Long Flash Sale

Shop Update: A Week Long Flash Sale {an Art School Dropout's life}Flash Sale Time!!! I have put up all of the extra Letters and Hexagons that I cast these past two weeks up in my main shop for ONE WEEK ONLY! 

Most of the listings are set up to be customized in some way or another. This was the reason I couldn’t do this on Instagram and had to open up my StoreEnvy shop again. It will help keep things organized a bit!

I’ve also added a few pre-made earrings, necklaces and a banner or two.

The sale will end Thursday, May 21st at midnight. At that point I will close up shop and start working on all the orders. I wont reopen the shop until the next sale. This way I can ship everything in a timely manner and still fulfill my contractual obligations I have.

All proceeds from this sale are going to help me take care of monthly payments on a long arm sewing machine, something I’m hoping to purchase very soon. The machine will help me turn out quilts faster, and allow me to experiment more with the actual quilting process. Then maybe after a year of practice, I can start taking on others quilts! It’s an exciting venture, and I just want to be ready. So expect a few of these flash sales within the next few months.

A Fragmented Mountain Mini Quilt

A Fragmented Mountain Mini Quilt {an Art School Dropout's life} #epp english paper piecing and Hand quiltingI started this little mini quilt back in November to test out an idea I had for a larger version. I hand drew the mountain pieces on some card stock and using the English Paper Piecing method, I had stitched all those little pieces together using mostly scraps.

It only took me a few days to finish the “mountain”, but after that I was stumped on what to do next. So I taped it to my workroom wall and figured I’d finish it when I had an idea.

Shop Update: Custom Letter Charms & Hexie Necklaces

Shop Update: Custom Letter Charms & Hexie Necklaces {an Art School Dropout's life} Shop Update: Custom Letter Charms & Hexie Necklaces {an Art School Dropout's life}I decided a few months back that I still really love casting plastic, like a lot! I have started setting up custom listing in my Etsy shop so when I do cast, I’m only casting what customer like, not just what I feel like making in hopes other will like it all.

So, if you have ever wanted a custom Hexagon or Quilt Block Necklace, or maybe a set of charms that spell out something awesome or ridiculous, then now is the time. I’m casting all week!!!
