My friend Christy of Steel Magnolia Creations and I are co-hosting a Before Black Friday Sale/Open House.

Christy sews the most wonderful items – aprons, bibs, nursing covers, casserole carriers – all of which are fun, functional, and made with care.  My favorite are her casserole carriers – I love to give these as gifts!

Our Before Black Friday Sale will be on Saturday, November 13th from 10-2 in New Bern, NC.  If you are interested, please contact me and I’ll make sure you get a personal invitation!

In the meantime, stop by www.KaraAnnis.com and www.KaraAnnisJewelry.etsy.com to see what I’ve been creating lately.  Look for shop updates over the next few weeks as we’re heading into the holiday season!

Hey there!  I would love it if you’d take a minute to vote for my ensemble over on the Courture du Jour Challenge on Lillyella’s blog!

Under “Vote for your Favorite Casual Outfit,” my choice is Casual 11.

The challenge was to create an outfit using the Fiji Dress (picutred)  and three additional pieces (jackets, sweaters, bags, tights, shoes, jewelry, hair pieces…).   In the midst of a cold and dreary winter, I went for something full of warmth and energy –  I chose lovely mimosa yellow as my theme!

Thanks for your support!
