Thankfulness, Cranberry Sauce, and Coupons!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My day, though spent far from home, was blessed. 
I cooked a batch of homemade cranberry sauce (which actually JELLED!) and successfully made some dinner rolls to go with the dinner.

Take a look at the newest addition to my little family of crafting tools. The Dressmaker, circa 1970-something. I haven't yet figured out how to thread it (apparently they were smart enough back then not to need those little dots and dashes and arrows that tell you where to put the thread). I'm hoping to be able to make some new items with this little beauty! We'll see how it goes.

And - because it is now FRIDAY (12:05am, to be exact), I have come up with a Black Friday coupon for my Etsy shop! Actually I am offering two deals: buy one pair of earrings and get one free, and also get 30% off your order by typing in the coupon code 'melmaria30' at checkout. These deals are available until Monday! I promise I have some great, one-of-a-kind items available in my shop for gifting! Take a peek and share the love. Thank you!
