Ok, so I thought you guys would like to know about the big sale going on this weekend at JoAnn
We deal with a lot of crazies.


You have my sympathies, shadowsforsale. I was employed at a Joann's in Ohio from 1998-2005.
I both loved it, and hated it. (loved the job, but some of the other employees I despised, and unfortunatly, I was super happy to quit-6 weeks before my son was born)

I hope you get paid better then me!

Looking forward to seeing your poppet. Smiley

DF  she's really cute!

I worked for the $2 Fabric Store back in 1994-96.  I had a love hate relationship with that job.  Love - I touch fabric all day and learned to sew.  Hate - People.  I never had another job in retail again.

Having worked in a seafood market that sold about $18,000 in shrimp platters on Christmas Eve (I smelled like cooked shrimp for days), I know the hassles of retail...especially around the holidays! So, when I stop at Joann's on the way to a Christmas party tomorrow, I'll be especially nice to the sales clerks Wink

I am definitely getting more colors of the Alova suede if I can find it. And, animal eyes, too! Seems like everyone who used to carry them has stopped. I'll have to place a huge order online after the holidays...

And, thanks for the tip about the coupon commotion! Now I need to find my sales flyer!

But really, I need to get to bed...I just finished making and wrapping gifts for the party tomorrow...and I'm a bit wound up...maybe I should make some tea...

If you're there early-ish, the customer service desk might have some flyers with coupons in them. Sleep well, and/or enjoy your tea!

Thanks! I found the flyer...instead of making tea...and saw that Butterick patterns are on sale for 99 cents. I've been waiting to get an apron pattern. So much for a semi-quick dash in for Poppet fabric. This could be a dangerous stop! Hmmmm...I do need fabric for my Poppet's dress...and yarn for her hair...

It's hit or miss with my and whether or not I get a sales flyer. Sometimes it's in the paper, sometimes, not. Oh well, since my dad just sprung Christmas with his family on me (they drew names and gave me and my bf EACH a name, with a rather steep limit), I don't think I have money for more suede. *sniff* I'm jealous!  Wink

I love how everyone is changing their avitar to their poppets. It is so fun!!
 Great poppet fragileness! I too am having a hard time with clothing! Poppets are easy clothing is hard for me. I ended up buy 6 pieces of clothing for mine. But I might try a pattern tonight. It is that one sock monkey dress someone posted awhile back! It looks so cute!

  instead of sewing toes,  i sew it in a arch.  and scultped 2 toes.  you could just sew 2 toes on instead of 3 and do the same thing though.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.. I think it's the best looking and easiest thing I've ever made and everyone who sees it goes "Wha??? You.. made... that??" I generally make bags. Glad to know I'm not the only one who is clothes deficient.
Hubby says we can go to Joann's soon!!! =D I'm so excited..... BTW, I don't think I've said it, but everyone's poppets are gorgeous. And very inspiring. I don't think I could ever craft some as terrific as MK's and some of the others I've seen, but they do inspire. Well, I'm off to sew my head on my body.... er... on my bunny's body.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all
