Etsy Sale, Update and Giveaway

Happy Labor Day!  I thought since everybody else has a sale to celebrate, I’d join in too.  Personally, I’ll take shopping online during the big sales over fighting the crowds any day! I’ve decided to discontinue the coffee cup sleeves in my Etsy store.  I love making them, but my focus has really turned toward…

Pencil and Paper Drink Sleeve and Mat
