***SALE*** This weekend only!

November 27, 2008

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  We’re looking forward to some of Granny J’s cookin’ tonight, and maybe a little Christmas decorating later this weekend.  Of course, I also plan to do a little online shopping and I thought…what would Thanksgiving be without family, great food, and a great sale?  All things considered, I decided the perfect way to show my appreciation for said day, would be to throw an awesome sale on The Original Foodie Prints. Think Saundra Kay’s Okra & Tomatoes or Liz’s Deviled Blue Crab. You’ll even find a festive drink or two over there.  So skip on over to the produce stand and take a peek!  There’s never been a better time to start a collection, and they make for excellent gifts!

I think we’ll all be watching our pennies a little closer this holiday season.  There will be some great deals to be had, and for those of us on a tighter budget, it will mean really looking hard to find that perfect gift.  So this year, I’ve taken The Handmade Pledge. I’d rather my dollars support an independent artist, artisan, or craftsman, than a corporate machine.  The best part about it?…I end up with a truly unique, one-of-a-kind, thoughtful gift, and help an indie artist continue to do what they love.  Of course Etsy.com is a great place to start shopping for all things handmade, and they’ve got some really fun ways to navigate the site.  Check it out!

So I heard a reporter on the news yesterday asking whether it was premature to start putting up Christmas trees and what nots prior to Turkey Day.  I must say, that any other year I would probably grunt and say yes, that Christmas should wait.  However, when taking into consideration the current economic woes, I think it’s best to start spreading some Christmas Cheer…Not to mention, the end of all those annoying presidential campaign commercials is cause to enough to celebrate.  So  here’s the start of my subliminal Christmas marketing campaign, just to get you in the spirit.
