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!!
