Last Call Before Christmas

Hello, everyone!

I'll admit, I'm losing steam... I don't even have my tree out of the box yet! I hope to mail out the last custom order this week, and then I will concentrate on home and family... and the grand-daughter that is due to arrive near the end of January! :)

I have activated a coupon code for you to use in my Honeysuckle Lane Etsy shop. It's for 25% off your order of $25 or more. Just use this code at checkout: MERRY2015.

And if you see something you want on my Honeysuckle Lane shop blog or on my Early Work Mercantile page, let me know you want the MERRY2015 discount and I'll give you 25% off those shops, too! :)

These offers end December 25th.

Thanks for the orders already coming in! I'll be shipping every day right up until Christmas Eve and will pick back up on the 28th.

Cori Dantini Nursery Decor

Our first grand-baby is due in just over a month! Poppy (Roger) is finishing up the baby bed and Saturday morning I finished up a little quilt and two framed prints just in time for the baby shower.

I have loved Cori Dantini's art since I saw it online a few years ago. It's sweet, fun, whimsical, innocent... perfect for a nursery!

I found coordinating fabrics featuring Cori's art at Hawthorne Threads (manufactured by Blend Fabrics) and since I was waiting till the last minute to make something for the baby shower, I opted for the fabric that looked like pieced squares and made a hand-tied, whole cloth quilt!

I pieced a couple of coordinating prints (also Cori's art) for the back... a  sweet acorn print and a purple dot print...

and I used her pretty, pink scallop print for the binding.

And of course, I had to order a couple of Cori's adorable owl prints to go with the quilt! These are 8" x 8" prints that I placed on pink scrapbook paper and framed in 12" x 12" frames from The frames are actually float frames but I decided to add the scrapbook paper instead of letting the wall color show through.

 The last thing I did was add a hand-written label with a little flower and owl scribbled in the corners. I used a Sakura Pigma Micron Pen and heat set it with an iron. Even after washing in warm water it didn't fade or bleed. Whew!

Now we just have to wait patiently for that little bundle of joy to arrive. :)

Have a blessed day!

Don't Forget --- Art Makes Unique Gifts!

Only a couple of weeks remain to take advantage of the 50% off coupon code for my Lana Manis Designs Etsy shop. Visit here, and then use this code, GOODBYE2015, during checkout to get half off as many prints and original art pieces as you want! :)

If you don't do Etsy, just contact me with your order and shipping information, and I'll send a PayPal invoice and remove the art from the shop.

At the end of the year, all remaining items will be removed and a little later I will list them at the regular price either in my Honeysuckle Lane Etsy shop, or on my own website.

Thank you so much for visiting!

Wool... Finally!

I've been itching to get into my wool stash and start doing more handwork. I've managed to sneak a little time in here and there, and while I have to stop again to work on another custom order, I plan to take it back up next week.

I LOVE using Valdani threads... can't wait to order more!

I have just a couple items listed at Early Work Mercantile this morning. If you'd like to read more about them, click here.

That's it for today... I've got to get back to work! :)
