Guest Post from Kalissa
It’s cancer week which means all of the kiddos are trying to help mom out between her many early morning trips to Rochester.
You probably read last week that Kayla wrote a few blog posts for mom and I told her I (Kalissa) would also write a few posts for her.
Gannon got into some trouble last week, he’s been a little too eager to help me out in my Etsy shop. I’ve got my home office in our hallway landing area. I was downstairs, enjoying my free time while I assumed Gannon was sleeping. The living room was due for a deep clean so I moved all the couches, vacuumed, dusted, rearranged my vintage nursing decor, and was surprised that Gannon was sleeping for so long…he wasn’t.
As I was headed to bed that night, I realized he was NOT sleeping. Gannon had gone through my box of about stationary sets and ripped the paper off that holds the sets together.
He was in BIG TROUBLE but also, lesson learned. I need to toddler-proof my office!
Thankfully, only a few cards were deemed “unsellable” but it took HOURS to put these sets together and that was with my mom and sister’s help! I’ll be spending my day tomorrow putting sets back together. I should have learned my lesson when last week….
He was “helping me with orders.” It was SO CUTE that he wants to help. I make it a priority to include the boys in my biz every chance I get but Gannon gets a little too enthusiastic.
I prefer they help write thank you cards like Carver does…
Or when Carver takes my packages into the post office…
That being said, I do have a few new shirts I want to share with you. My goal is to… put out a new quilting or sewing design every month in 2021!
These two shirts are likely familiar to you, I printed the same design in a maroon/white last June.
I LOVE this steel blue and we tried something new – a tone on tone – so its a cool light blue ink on a cool steel blue tee. I know ya’ll love v-necks so I made sure to include that option as well.
MACHINE-ist also isn’t a new shirt but it’s got a new look! Mom and I just LOVE long sleeve tees and since the CUT SEW PRESS shirts went over “sew” well (haha get it?) We decided to try another long sleeve tee!
This is the January launch so get yours while you can! I’ve said that this year I want to branch out and have my inventory sold in local quilt shops! If you know of your favorite quilt shop that might like to carry my designs, please leave a comment or reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I promise you, if you order, your order will arrive intact and toddler proofed – even if I do have a few extra eager helpers!
