I am nothing if not honest. I am not a ‘Christmas music all year-round’ kind of gal. I lived with one of those for many years… but she did not convert me. I am also stubborn. Christmas after Thanksgiving. That’s my rule.
I am also a teensy bit random. It’s gonna rock my traditional boat, but I can take it. A few of you have emailed and commented on the possibility of me helping you with some presents for the holiday season (we shall call you ‘the overachievers’). Yes. I would love to help you. Absolutely. I just need a ballpark idea of what I’m looking at so I can be realistic with my time and promises.
And to add to your options, I’d like to let you in on a secret that’s been in the works for a while now.
They’re from Texas.
They hold 25 pounds.
They’ll be less than $25.
They’re illustrated by the beautiful Cortney and printed by yours truly. Seriously. You can’t go wrong. The photo to your right shows a bag already printed, but the ones from TexasNorth will be available with any of Cort’s 12 farm drawings on them… printed and/or embroidered. ARE THEY NOT SO AWESOME? Price and drawings are being fine-tuned (I don’t know what the company is going to charge for my bulk order yet), but I’ll let’cha know.
If you think you’d like to order an organic market bag, a cotton market bag, banners, or anything else you’ve seen me talk about here, I’d love for you to let me know by October 1st. As an incentive: no charge for shipping on early-bird orders! Fa-la-la-la-laaaaaaaa-la-la-la-la. Get those lists a-goin’! Send me an email [katiemulderATgmailDOTcom] and we can talk in secret. No need to spoil the surprise in the comments. (I am also old-fashioned.)
The linen dress photos are from a ridiculous photo shoot with a 21month old I know. Please note the Sloppy Joe decorating her nose. Have you ever tried to wipe this child’s face? It’s like asking me to be brief. It’s like asking John to move the island. It’s like… well, you get the picture. Ellie, I put in a zipper. Don’t look too closely. I didn’t follow the directions. But, it functions and I may have danced around my kitchen with First-Time-Zipper-Achievment glee. Twice.
