Stitchnmomma's Shirts - Cross Stitch T-Shirts

In an effort to continue building the Stitchnmomma brand, last weekend I launched a t-shirt shop that will contain quite a few of my stitched designs (Modern Dictionary series & some of my quotes) along with just some other general fun shirts.  Most everything will be related to cross stitch, but there will be some other fun designs.

I plan on adding 2 or 3 new designs each weekend.  In addition, whenever I release a new cross stitch design that can easily be converted to a t-shirt, I will add the shirt to my shop at the same time.

As of Sunday 06/26/16, these are the designs currently available:








Each design will be available in a variety of shirt styles, colors and sizes.  There will also be stickers available to match each design.  If you're interested in getting one or more of these shirts, simply click HERE to go to my shop.

As always, thanks for looking and Happy Stitching!

Patchwork Pin Cushions Cross Stitch Pattern #4

Oh my, I have no clue where my mind was at last weekend.  I released the pattern through all my online venues, and forgot to add it to my blog so everyone would know it's now available.  Sheesh!





This pattern contains January (a winter them) and February (a Valentine theme).
 
The patterns provide the information on the appropriate buttons.  And as an added bonus, the printed copies of the patterns include step-by-step finishing instructions.  Unfortunately there's no way for me to provide those same instructions with the instant download version available through Patterns Online.

If these designs are something that interest you, you can locate a retailer here.   

My work life outside of Stitchnmomma has been extremely busy the pasts several months.  Please don't fear, I did NOT stop this series in the middle.  All 12 months will be done, I'm just running slightly behind.  Or as a fellow designer told me, I'm ahead of schedule for next year, LOL!

If you're stitching any of these lovely pieces, feel free to share pics of them on my Facebook page or even join our group that's also on Facebook, where ladies share their WIP and finished project pics. 

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!

Stitch & Bitch Club Official Member

In my continued efforts to build the Stitchnmomma "empire" and try to keep up with the big dogs of the cross stitch industry (who will remain nameless), I've decided to create some fun & frivolous t-shirts.  They may be centered around our craft/hobby or they may just be something totally off the wall.

Without further ado, here's the first one...

The t-shirts will only be printed if the minimum order is met.  This option will be available to order for the net 14 days (through July 4th).  If you're interested in getting one, here's the link...

Stitch From Stash - May 2016 Recap

Oh boy, I could have done better.

Opening Balance = ($51.66)
Finishes = $5.00
Purchases = $7.11
Balance Forward = ($53.77)


Finishes
March Patchwork Pincushion = $5.00
 
Such a sad state of affairs.  Only one small finish this month.  I have several others that are almost complete, if I could just get my stitching mojo back into full swing.  Oh well, there's always June.

Purchases
Floss = $1.32
Scissors = $5.75
 
My purchases were small, but still more than my finishes.  I had to pick up a couple of skeins of floss for pieces I'm working on.  And then I just had to get these awesome purple stork scissors to put my cute little scissor fob on that was part of my Just Desserts:  Grape Punch design.  They go so perfectly together!

 

I passed on a lot of Memorial Day sales that were going on in the month of May.  June is the annual anniversary sale at my local shop.  As of right now I plan on possibly buying a couple skeins of floss and that's it.  I *need* to start doing better on my stash diet!!!

Until the next time...Happy Stitching!

Free Money for Shopping...YES PLEASE!

OK, so I normally don't post about non-stitching related stuff on my blog. However, I have to make an exception here.  And technically it can be stitching related.

One of my friends sent me a link to a company called Ebates.  I had heard about it before, but never checked it out.  She's been using it for awhile now and gets money back each quarter.  They have over 2,000 stores linked on their site.  The way it works is those stores pay Ebates to bring them customers.  I figured I was doing some online shopping this morning anyway, so why not give it a try.

I signed up for the Ebates site and used their link for 6% cash back from Kohl's.  While I was on the Kohl's site I was still able to use my 20% off coupon as well as my Kohl's rewards when I checked out.  I waited about 1/2 hour and went back to my Ebates account.  Guess what was there waiting for me...an additional $6.48 in cash back rewards!  Yay!!  

The cash back rewards are paid on a quarterly basis.  So everything I purchase using their site between now and June 30th will get paid into my PayPal account on August 15th (you can also get a check, but too many things get lost in the mail here in LV, so I opted for PayPal).  If you're still skeptical, think about it like earning cash back rewards on your credit card.

And the best part for all us crafters... 
Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and Michael's are all listed on their site!!  :)   
All you have to do to earn money back on your purchases is to link through your account on the Ebates site.  Can it get any easier than that?  And remember, you can still use all your normal coupons just like if you went straight to the store's site.

If you're interested in giving this a try, I've put a button along the right side bar of my page that will take you to the Ebates site where you can sign up.

Until the next time...Happy shopping & earning FREE money!


Editor's Note 6-5-16:
For those of you that may be skeptical, I got my first payment already via PayPal, and here's a photo of it to prove it.


 I wasn't expecting anything until August, but maybe with PayPal they pay out monthly vs. quarterly for checks.  I'll keep an eye on it and see.  :)
