I know how things get lost online – on Facebook, on Instagram, on Etsy, on Blogs. I know I do better to try and track what’s going on through my email.
I didn’t say I was totally caught up on my email by any means! But I do better at tracking and searching and finding and re-finding the information I am looking for through email.
So if you are like me, and would like updates on new releases, sales, announcements and more, sign up for my email list! Don’t worry, I will not flood your inbox! I am going to start utilizing this more for new items, exclusives, holiday sales, etc. I am also learning to digitize embroidery designs so this will be the way I can advertise for that and offer codes for a free download. Oh the things I’m working on right now – I am nerding out on how I’ve created things in stitches! The nuiMOs are getting some new things. 😁
Wander over to the Studio today and sign up for my email list – you should see a pop up that looks like the photo below. You never know what the next email will be about – or what’s in it!
Happy February! We are 1/12th the way through the new year. Is 2021 treating you any better? I’m not sure yet…
I just wanted to share all the fun new Bernie meme items I have been creating recently – getting some good feedback, and I have more coming, just need to find the time to make and photograph and list. I try to create several new items each week – a variety to choose from – but you know, life. Some weeks have more new things, some less. Anyway – here are the fun Bernie items I have created so far, and more to come!
Hello! I hope you all had a nice Christmas with whoever you were able to spend it with. I am sad to see several of the items I shipped out well before Christmas still have not arrived. I just wanted to give a quick update from the little I know.
As I’m sure you are all well-aware, the US Postal Service is overwhelmed with an unprecedented amount of package deliveries, and understaffed due to Covid. I am not going to reiterate that here, but I just wanted to share a quick example. If you ordered something from me and received a Tracking Number, I PROMISE it was dropped off at the US Post Office for processing, but they don’t scan all the items right away. I have been watching all of the orders I shipped out to see what was scanned, what is still “label created” and allegedly not moving, and what has been delivered. Yes I have been tracking them all for over a month. I think it bugs me even more than it bugs you because I created and shipped as quickly as I could to get the orders in your hands in time, and the Postal Service failed me and millions of other Small Businesses this year.
I checked in on all the packages again this morning, and I have a screen shot of a good example. This doesn’t give away the item or where it is going, but you’ll see in the screen shot below that the label was created December 15th. It said Pre-Transit for 10 days as if I had it still sitting in my office, not dropped off to the Post Office. I dropped it off right away, but it was never scanned. Suddenly (10 days later) it has reached a regional postal processing center in New York. Luckily this package has a NY destination so I am hopeful this will be delivered very soon.
I appreciate that most have been understanding and patient about the delays. Once I mail the package it is at the mercy of the Postal Service, which again, they are overwhelmed and understaffed. I am still working my way through a few last-minute orders that came in just before Christmas. If you had one of those, I am hoping to make them all this weekend and get shipped out early next week. Thank you so much. Hope you are all having a Wonderful Holiday Season!
Just a quick post – it’s not much but I am so happy that I was able to create something from start to finish that will also help my son with math this year! I have more that I am making, but for now I was able to finish the first 5 of many math wheels. I really want him to pop out the numbers and just know them in his head, so I am hoping these will help the end result. From the first placement stitch to the final satin stitches I created the math wheels. It may not be a perfect design, but I think it is a great start for my first design product. I just thought they turned out so cool, I had to share! More coming soon.
I don’t know how you are doing but my brain is about to explode. 2020 is clearly a year to remember – or rather forget as soon as possible. The pandemic. The senseless killings and riots. The call to action for a movement long overdue. Working full time, trying to learn new things and come up with and create new products. Trying to learn digitizing so I can create my own designs. The “feels like 107″… Impending storms on the coasts… where does it end?
I have also started a new Facebook Group for My Rainy Day Designs for Exclusive Designs previews. And when I start digitizing I will post some designs there, sneak peeks, etc. until I am ready to start selling designs! See more here and join me today!

I recently found the magical world of fabric vinyl and snaps. And will be branching out to eyelets and rivets soon. I made some Superhero key rings and dropped them off at a local shop this weekend and he was so excited and wants more – he even sold a few that night! That shop will be getting the Superhero and Star Wars themed items, but there are soooo many more that I want to make! As time permits I will be adding about a billion to Etsy. Right now they come with snaps around the keyring so that if you want to remove the keyring and attach it to your bag or something else, you will easily be able to do so. In the future I will have the option of adding rivets for a permanent key ring, but I don’t have that tool just yet. But aren’t these super fun?! Find these in the Key Fobs / Bag Tags section – and many more will be added soon, so check back!
The Allergy Key Fobs include allergies to: Dairy, Egg, Fish, Peanut, Shellfish, Soy, Tree Nut, and Wheat.
Superheroes currently listed: Aquaman, Baby Groot, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, Flash, Green Lantern, Hulk (glows in the dark), Punisher and Venom.
