So, we made it to another weekend, huh? Thank goodness. This week has sortof run me ragged. Like I mentioned the other day, I've been distracted with some things that are going on with my job, and I plan to share a little of that next week. That being said, I plan on being here a little more next week. I've just had a hard time focusing. Anyway, I have a few things I'd love to share with you!!
First of all, I'd like to talk a bit about Hip Stitch. It's my happy place. It's a lovely fabric store/sewing lounge run by my friend Suzanne, and it feels like my home away from home. I've been shopping (and stalking) there for two years, and just love stopping by. I did just that yesterday on my way home from work and I stayed for an hour & a half just munching and laughing with my friends. It was a nice way to unwind after work.
There are a few reasons I'm telling you about Hip Stitch. First of all, I really do love it there, and I've shared here before that I go often. Second, Suzanne has applied to be considered for a $250,000 small business grant from Mission: Small Business and almost has enough votes to go on to the next round for consideration. I was wondering if you'd be willing to log in & vote for her? For my happy place? It doesn't take long- just log in through facebook, enter New Mexico and Albuquerque for the location, and then jump to page 5 & click the button next to Hip Stitch! I would SO appreciate your help with this- I can't imagine all the wonderful things she could do with that money!! The third reason I'm mentioning Suzanne and Hip Stitch is that I've decided to offer sponsorship opportunities here on moxiemandie.com and Suzanne is one of the first to sign up! In addition to the darling shop & lounge, she runs an etsy shop, selling some of the same fabrics online as in the brick & mortar shop, so that those of you that aren't local can still buy pretty fabrics!! Here are a few of my favorites:
So, yeah. That's that.
