A Bad Week with a Good Ending

I like to do my shop updates for Monday or Tuesday, and start your week with a little fibery eye-candy. But this past week was completely hijacked by a terrible winter cold that has hit the whole family. Everything has come to a complete halt.

And rather than my days being filled with steaming dyepots, they were filled with steaming cups of tea…


Well, actually more like this. When I’m not feeling well, I want a lot of tea…


We-e-e-ell…. ok… When I’m really ill (and I’ve been really ill), I always turn to my mother’s never-fail cough medicine: warmed honey with a (generous) splash of Scotch.  Taken by the teaspoonful and poured down the back of the throat, absolutely nothing soothes a scratchy and nagging cough so well.

So… ok…  ok!  Maybe my week looked a bit more like this…

Tea, honey, Scotch, a box of tissues, me under the duvet…  and no shop update.

But something wonderful happened this week too — something really exciting that’s saved the whole miserable, cold-filled week…  SpaceCadet Creations made its 100th sale!  And that makes me want to celebrate.  So this week, instead of a shop update, I’m giving you a wee treat: every order placed between now and midnight on Thursday will get 10% off.  It’s just a little thing, a little gift from me to you to say thank you for all of your support.  Just enter the code “100Sales” at checkout to claim your discount.

And if you happen to have a bit of a cold too… Well, come over here and sit next to me.  I’ve got a box of tissues, and we can share a nice pot of tea.  …And maybe some of Mum’s cough medicine too — it really is lovely.
