Sew, ship, sew, ship, sew, ship. Repeat.
That's pretty much been the deal for the last couple weeks. It's been great fulfilling orders. Speaking of orders ... back to sewing...and shipping... and sewing.
In the meantime, please enjoy these lovely ship illustrations by Catherine Campbell. Aren't they sweet?

Today is the last day to place an order (by 3 pm) and have it ship in time for Christmas without expedited shipping fees to most domestic destinations. Mini wallets and luggage tags deliver in 2-3 business days via USPS first class mail and larger items deliver in 3-5 days via UPS ground service.
After tomorrow, email me your 'ship to' zip code and I'll send you and estimated delivery date and let you know if you need to upgrade your shipping fee in order to have it by Christmas. Having said that, East Coast orders (especially if you are in a major city) often deliver over night or in 2 days from Brooklyn without additional fees.
Many items in my Etsy shop are ready for immediate delivery. Check 'em out!

I'm finally getting caught up in photographing and listing one of a kind recycled sail bags in my Etsy shop. It's been a long time coming, but they are now available for immediate delivery here.
Orders can still make it in plenty of time for Christmas. Domestic orders deliver in 2-5 business days and international orders take 5-10.

I thought it was pretty cool to see my upcycled sail pillow on Halogen's 25 Green Gifts for the Home list. I'm in good company with Alice Water's 'In The Green Kitchen Cookbook' and this "Ever-Green" Aluminum Holiday Wreath from Eco-Artware
But when I went to the site and saw this video, I was sold on something completely different. Check it out:

I'm not sure which I like more, the photo of the sculpture or the urchin sculpture itself - both simply lovely. Ah, ha! This Minneapolis ceramist is also a wedding photographer, that explains it!
Don't you think this porcelain urchin would make a wonderful addition to desk or mantle. Reasonably priced at $24 by DiTerra available on Etsy.
