Daily Discounts: LAMA

Today kicks off two full weeks of decor8 discounts offered by both sponsors of this blog and friends that I’ve asked to participate — and these offers will be posted daily so good things are in store my friends! This week is all about the sponsors, and next week will be dedicated to those who are not sponsors but who are friends of this blog and I’ve asked them to participate. I can’t wait to reveal the line up! With that, here is the first discount for the day, more to follow in the next hours, in between regularly scheduled posts of course.

First up is 20% off at LAMA on all items, wow! They rarely offer sales like this so if you like something definitely take advantage of this one. The code to enter upon checkout is: LAMAdecor8. Enjoy and make sure to tell your friends in case they love Latin American design with a very fresh, modern twist.

My wish list includes: 1. Doily Hearts pillow, 2. To The Moon necklace, 3. Calu Mother plate, 4. Swallows by Lorena Siminovich, 5. Teapot with a Cold and 6. Tree Bird brooch.

Thank you LAMA for your generous discount!

Psst: All discounts posted this week and next will be valid until November 21, however some shops have limited stock so if you see something you like you may not want to wait too long… Just a tip!

Hello Handmade {New!}

Just in! The talented Betsy Dunlap and Shanna Murray have teamed up to open Hello Handmade, a shop that just opened this morning. Combining the artful calligraphy of Betsy with the beautiful illustration of Shanna, you will find a special ’09 calendar, seasonal print, and some vintage hangers to purchase for display use – all ready for you in their new shop this morning. Congrats, ladies!

In the weeks and months to come, you can expect cards, gift tags, and more! Not only are collaborations huge right now, but have you noticed hangers becoming increasingly popular to display prints, photography, and calendars vs. traditional frames? Fun!

Thank you Betsy and Shanna for letting us know about your new shop, best wishes for a successful business!

Psst: Have you seen “The Jill”, Betsy’s custom calligraphy style? It would be perfect for a wedding or on place cards for a fancy dinner, don’t you think?

Happy Weekend!

I hope that you had a really good week and that you’re ready for the weekend as much as I am. I love Fridays! :) I’m signing off now but remember that Monday is our BIG DAY as it kicks off two full weeks of decor8 discounts so please remember to stop by each day between November 3-14 to view the stores offering deals just for you. Note: All discounts will be valid from the time that they post until November 21, 2008.

“The Big Day” by Sycamore Press.

What are your plans this weekend? One highlight of mine: I’m meeting a group of ladies first thing in the morning for coffee and then we’re off to the fabric market! Yay! If you are local and want to join us, please email me and I’ll fill you in on the details. Here’s the rest of my agenda: If you’d like to tell me yours, please comment below and on Monday you can comment again to report in on your progress.

Saturday: Girls breakfast and then we hit the Holland fabric market (Stoffmarkt). Buy fresh flowers (I forgot to do this today). Finish painting my dining room chairs, reupholster them, bake cookies, and relax for the evening as I think this weekend will mostly be about reading, relaxing, and baking. Get crafty: Make a few necklaces while I watch a movie. Write a letter to my mother.

Sunday: Talk a long walk in the forest with my man, collect pine branches, go shopping (special shopping day this Sunday where stores will be open and there’s a festival downtown with food and such), spend time with friends in the afternoon, and at night… bubble bath! Every woman should end the weekend with a bit of pampering, don’t you think?

What will you do this weekend? Your plans?
