Now available on your Mobile Devices!

Over the past couple of months I have been working to format my eBooks to the Kindle formatting, so that I could download them to my mobile phone.

I have Adobe’s PDF view on my Android, but I also wanted to be able to download them to my Kindle and I am pleased to announce that my eBook patterns are becoming available on Amazon Kindle! It’s been a bit of a time consuming task, getting them transferred over to Kindle, but well worth it.

As always, they are available in PDF format and if your mobile device supports Adobe’s PDF viewer, then you can download them to your mobile device any time, but now you also have the option of purchasing them for your Kindle or any other device that supports Amazon’s Kindle app.

I am so excited about this, because I hate lugging my laptop everywhere and moving it CherriesIncognitoTamponWallet_AbbyChaseDesignsaround with me in the studio when I am creating patterns or using eBook patterns to create new items. So this works wonderfully for me. All I have to do is download it to my phone and I have it wherever I go.

No more making lists when I go to the store. I just look in my phone at the actual pattern supply list and there it is. I can cross reference and make sure I get what I need.

I can’t even tell you how much time this saves me!

Now you can download them immediately too, and onto any device that supports Amazon Kindle or PDF! Just remember, if you want the Kindle version, just go here. And if you want the PDF version, just go here to purchase it and then download it to your mobile device that supports PDF viewer. (You may have to download the PDF viewer from the app store first, but it’s free!)

Right now, I have a couple of the eBook patterns listed in the Kindle store, but I hope to get them all transferred over soon. I will also be formatting all of my future patterns for PDF and Kindle.

I have the Kindle app on my Android and it works wonderfully. I also like the fact that you have the option of running the Kindle app on your home computer, laptop, or mobile device.

I will update when I get some more eBook patterns formatted for Kindle:)

A Scentsy Party…..

My sister just started selling Scentsy and I couldn’t be more pleased! I get to order my favorite wickless wax melters and the yummiest scents while I help my sister earn cash at the same time!

Just to give you a little refresher, in case you missed my history in candle making…. I used to manufacture candles until my 3rd child was born. Then I decided that I wanted to stay home with the kids and making candles at home with small children was not an option, because of the danger involved. So I decided to retire and try something else, (which is when I started sewing).  Long story short….. Since I haven’t been making my own candles and scenting my own waxes, I have had a hard time finding quality scented waxes that have excellent scent throw. Then I found Scentsy and the rest is history.

Their waxes are high quality and the scent throw is amazing! I can start the warmer and within a few minutes the room is filled with the yummy scent and within an hour, it is making it’s way throughout the house. There are so many scents to choose from, that I have to refrain from ordering them all at once. I could easily go broke ordering scent bars;)

The best part about Scentsy, is that they are wickless! Wickless means flameless and flameless means less potential for accidental fires and such. All I can say is, they are amazing and with 5 kids running around, the last thing I need is an open flame!

Anyway, I have decided to host an online party for my friends and followers, because I think you will love them if you don’t already. And if you order online, you get special rewards… Like free shipping and half off items! It only lasts for two weeks, so don’t hesitate to order.

If you haven’t tried Scentsy yet, then now is a great time to try. If you currently use Scentsy and love it, it’s about time you order some new scents or try one of their new products, like the Scentsy Buddy, Plug-In,  or the Room Spray.
