Turquoise and Green iPod Cozy and Wallet Set

Hello!

Sorry, its been too long. Its been over a month since the last post! Well a lot has been happening, so read on.

FLICKR
Well, we now have a flickr...er, we've had one for awhile but are now actually using it. You can check it out here! We've made a few sales and established a network of friends and contacts through this awesome site... so if you have a flickr too, don't hesitate to add us as a contact!

NEW DESIGNS
We now have some new designs and new colors that will be showing up in our items soon. We are dabbling in the world if iPod cozies (in regular size and nano) as well as different sizes and proportions of pouches. Colorwise, we've been dabbling in pink, black, key lime green, and deep blue, as well as the red, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, and purples that have been gracing our site. We've been experimenting with different textures of yarn and have been mixing them with our new colors for scrumptious delights! If you are looking for a certain color in an item, please contact us and we will see if we have that color!

CHRISTMAS AND THE HOLIDAYS
The holidays have been especially good for business, and thankfully many people have chosen Sugar in the Morning for their shopping needs. You won't be alone if you do too ;)

UPCOMING
So, the shops looking a bit sparse, hmm? Well, new items will be rolling around the corner in January. You can look forward to a Black and Neon themed set of a cellphone cozy, pouch, and iPod cozy, a dog blanket or two, and a delightful pouch in blue, white, and tan. As usual, we are taking special requests!

So hopefully, you are still reading by now. I will be out of town from Thursday, the 16th, to January 1, 2007. You can still buy items from the shop, but don't expect them to be shipped until after the 5th or 7th of January.

If you would like to see more pictures of the Turquoise and Green iPOD Cozy and Wallet Set, please mozy on over here.

Thanks!

Good morning! How is everybody doing on this fine Sunday morning? I just changed all of the clocks (daylight savings) and have had a glass of orange juice to start off the day. Now, I know there has not been a featured seller for quite a while, and there won't be one this week, or next week, but I promise we will do more featured seller bits soon.

First off: Etsy will be CLOSED for two whole days next weekend, on November 4 and 5. Why is this happening? The lovely men and women behind Etsy are so awesome that they are redoing the entire site. Yes, you read correctly. The ENTIRE site. Visit their blog for screenshots and more information.

Second: Now what could this mean to you? A lot! Please, shop and put in all custom orders THIS week before the site redo. Mary Claire and I are going to be revamping a whole buncha stuff, such as PRICES (!!) and charity-giving. We recognize that the holidays are coming up and we will be getting ready for this wonderful time of year.

Third: I am extremely pleased with myself. I have finally. finished. that. green. scarf. It took forever and ever, but the end result is FANTASTIC! It's super long and super warm. There are pockets and oooh! I want to keep it to myself! I won't though, but its great to finally be done with it.

Fourth: Mary Claire knit a cute would-be cellphone cozy, but it was waaay to big for a normal cellphone. The yarn was too stretchy, and it just didn't work. I was thinking of ways to not make it so stretchy without redoing the whole thing when I thought, "TA DA! iPod Cozy!" I dusted off my sewing machine, got some felt and thread, and Sugar in the Morning had their first iPod cozy. It's so cute! It's discounted for $6 due to the imperfect stitching, which is not visible from the outside and does not hinder the functionality of it at all. This is a great deal, as they will be selling for a mere 9 dollars. It's called the Velvet Petals iPod Cozy.

Fifth: Another iPod cozy will be going up today as well! This one will also be discounted as its not as perfect as the non-discounted ones will be. Check out our store later this afternoon for the Raspberries and Cream iPod cozy.

Sixth: It is scarf season! At least, for half of the world! To celebrate this season of cold breezes and crackling leaves, a lavendar scarf will be going up for sale later on this week. Look for it on Thursday or Friday, before Etsy is closed for the weekend.

Seventh: Mary-Claire and I are going to start donating a portion of our proceeds to a charity. If you have one in mind, please do not hesitate to email us (sugarintheAM@hotmail.com) or leave a comment here.

Eigth: If you want exclusive goodies and coupons, sign up for our newsletter! It goes out every other Saturday. Email sugarintheAM@hotmail.com to sign up!

That's all for now!

Hey Sugars!
Wow, its been a long time since I've blogged. I was just thinking about how close the holiday season is, and what that means for Sugar in the Morning. Hopefully, we'll get a lot of orders and buys during the holidays. Audrey and I will probably increase our inventory for the occasion. There will definatly be more scarves, as well as a ton more pouches and a boatload of cell phone cozies. I'm working on a gorgeous lavender colored scarf, as well as a custom check book cover (which is really, really cute). The lavender scarf is probably going to be titled Lavender & Vanilla, because it is a lavender purple mixed with a cream color. Its so pretty and I'm about a third of the way done with it. I also finished a cell phone cozy which will be titled Grapefruit Juice, because the yarn is two shades of grapefruit pink and fuzzy, like the pulp in grapefruit juice. My dog blanket is coming along and maybe next week I might have it finished. I'm really excited for the holidays because I'm planning on making a MANLY scarf, so we're not just catering to all you females anymore. I'm thinking maybe a grey and blue or grey and red scarf???? These scarves should definatly be out by November, so you can get all your Christmas shopping done in one place, Sugar in the Morning!
Happy Knitting, Mary-Claire

So there's no featured seller this week but if you would like to nominate someone special (yes, you can nominate yourself!) just throw me an email and maybe you'll be picked! Our email is located at the bottom of this post.

So what's going on with the girls behind Sugar in the Morning? Well, I've been working on a lot of custom orders including one pink scarf, and one extra thick and extra long green scarf. Mary-Claire is working on a custom pink and white checkbook cover.

Our latest item is the Nightime Rainbow Cellphone Cozy. It's cute, sophistcated, and has a very nice texture. $4.50... it's a deal!

Some items that are coming up: a red, white, and black pouch, a pink and turquoise pouch, as well as a green and blue pouch that works great for an ipod cozy or just for cash and make up! I'm going to try to take pictures this weekend and have them up!

Have a great night and week everybody!!

Good evening! Check out our featured seller,
The Dog Coat Lady from Delia's House of Canine Couture. She makes animal rights buttons, magnets, and the cutest dog and cat clothes I have ever seen! Take a look at this Pink Faux Fur Dog Dress, modeled by her blind pooch, Aunt Pitty Pat. Pink's not your color? Take a gander at this retro Pucci print dog jacket! But, if your best friend is more 'manly', check out the Retro 50's dog jacket . There are a ton of other cute jackets and lovely dresses if these don't quite tickle your fancy.

Okay, okay, so you've seen the most adorable clothes in dog fashion, but have you seen the fabulous (and funny) buttons and magnets?

If you are a vegetarian, you may like:

You can also find many buttons directed to specific breeds of dogs, including Great Danes, German Sherperds, and Rotties.
