As everyone knows, the way you kick back from all the shopping you did before Christmas is … to go out and do a lot more shopping. (Personally, I think this is insane, and I don’t do it, except for a quick trip to Target to get *next* year’s wrapping paper and half-price Christmas chocolate.) But, of course, Internet shopping doesn’t count … and Jen, at Momspatterns.com is having a big sale. how big? 30% off. Her sale is good on any size buy and the secret code is … “saveme30”. Her offer will expire at the stroke of midnight on new Year’s Eve. Don’t forget she uses complimentary shipping in north america if you buy 5 or a lot more patterns!
In fact, at 30% off, you can even get patterns like this (tiny-sized 1960s hostess jumpsuits) just for the happiness of owning them, without having to justify what is clearly a novelty-value purchase (“It would make a great Bond-girl costume for when I lose twenty pounds and three ribs!”) … for $3.15, this pattern is so completely worth it.
Mr. dress A Day, who is hiding from a holiday gathering with me, says that I must make today’s post about gifts you must return. Which I think is a great idea. I think you must return any gift that came with strings attached, or that was given in the hope that merely unwrapping the box would magically turn you into a completely different person, or gifts that were given to the person the giver wishes you were. Mr. dress a Day, joking: “Does that indicate you’re going to return the stripper heels I gotten you? Wait, don’t write that!” [Mr. dress a Day actually gave me something AWESOME, but didn’t want me to link to it here because it should have a whole post, and I agree. So tune in tomorrow … ]
Whoops, time for cake! Gotta come out of hiding now …
