Black Friday? More Like Black Magic!

Finally! The holidays are here! Time to clock out & spend some time around the table with the people who drive you nuts and who you love the most. Then once we've all slept off that massive meal it's time for you know what!!

X-mas Shopping!

For all you Model Citizens out there I've got some good news!

1. There are over a dozen items in the SALE section of my shop right now! T's for $12! You'll also find some Boy Beaters, Bobby Pin sets & Earrings too!

2. In honor of Black Friday, ALL black items in the shop will ship for FREE all weekend long! That includes hoodies, yoga pants, tanks, t's, & dresses! Just enter BLACK MAGIC in the message to seller field when checking out and your shipping will be refunded to you.

3. Since the holidays are all about sharing I'm giving away a pair of custom Best Friend Necklaces! One half will say your name and the other half your best friends! How cute is that? If you'd like to enter to win all you gotta do is leave a comment telling me your favorite song with the word Black in the title.
The first one that pops into my mind is Black Out by Pavement - it's a damn good song.

I wish you all safe travels & a fantastic holiday! Eat a second helping of mashed potatoes for me!
...and of course I urge you to steer clear of the malls - handmade is where it's at! I know I am preaching to the choir, but what kind of Model Citizen would I be if I didn't say something?

In Love and In Stitches!

Hello Lovelies!

I've got some good news!

1. Austin TX Finally cooled off. I'm blogging on my porch right now, listening to It's Blitz! sipping coffee in my hoodie & it's a crisp 47°F outside! I know that doesn't sound all that cold, but for Austin TX - that's full on winter! Just sayin.

2. The Sublime Stitching/Model Citizen Ready-To-Stitch Eco Totes are in my shop! AND - they come with floss, an embroidery needle AND How To instructions! This is a limited time offer kiddos. So don't eff around! Oh and BIG THANKS to Amy Bindle of Early Bird Special for stitching the example!

3. Tonight I'll be joining my manpanion, Austin Kalman for dinner @ Uchi in celebration of our 10 year anniversary! In 1999 we both moved to Olympia WA on a whim. We met almost immediately @ Majical Journeys where we both worked as phone psychics. Yes, phone psychics! I fell for him instantly and I'm still falling for him now. It's funny, I can't get away from musicians. On one of our first dates he told me he played guitar and I said "Oh honey - we all do.." Because I'm a jerk, BUT now he's about to embark on his first UK tour with his band and one of his songs actually appeared on Guitar Hero III... So, I was a jerk who is still pulling her foot out of her mouth. I'm so proud of him! Speaking of... I'm going to get off this computer and go give him my full attention. Nothing against y'all* of course.

p.s. Expect East Austin Studio Tour updates next week!

*yeah, I said y'all. What you gonna do about it?
