Holiday Closure & After-Christmas Sale

I hope you’ve stayed cozy and warm thus far in this holiday/Winter break and have had lots of yummy food with loved ones. In case Santa didn’t bring you your heart’s desire (or if you’re just looking for a good deal in prep for 2024 projects)… It’s the first day of this week of While the Cat’s Away Sales & Giveaways! (Can you believe it? This is the 16th Annual Cat’s Away Sale!)

Remember, the shipping staff are on vacation till January 3rd, but for sale prices and/or freebies, I think you’ll be able to wait. Shipping will BEGIN on January 3rd, so you’ll need to be patient if you’re ordering during this sale. More info on the sale and holiday schedule.

On to today’s goodies: TWO Sales and a Giveaway!

ONE: EVERYTHING on Clearance is now on Sale at 50% off!

This is HUGE (over 300 items from all themes) plus new items added daily during the sale!

The extra mark-downs end MONDAY night, January 1st, 2024 or until sold out! I will merge orders (to save shipping) if you order multiple times during the sale.

TWO: ONE-DAY COUPON SALE on ALL Supplies from the Happy Holidays Room Box!

Wow! This is so beautiful! Design Team Member Shannon Cooper made the fireplace from the Fireplace Facade and a Deep Open Front 4.5 x 5.5 Shadowbox (and made that lovely garland decorating the mantelpiece, too)!

Here’s some text from Shannon’s blog post to get us started:

It is time to get ready for Christmas! I usually start hauling out the colossal collection of holiday decorations directly after Thanksgiving, mostly because it takes a solid week of deciding what items are going to be used, and where are they going to be placed, and…Jiminy Christmas, this year I’m demanding that the Harry Potter tree get placed in front of the window!

In preparation for the whole-house decorating, I decided to spend a little time making a 1:12 scale Christmas room box complete with a cozy fireplace. And a cat in the rocking chair. Can’t forget the cat.

The fireplace is a Deep Open Front 4.5 x 5.5 Shadowbox with a Fireplace Facade glued to the front. I added thin strips of lightweight card along the top, apron, bottom, and around the surround, then made a mantel from a rectangle of thin basswood. I painted the fireplace a nice pale eggnog color before adding glowing embers and a sprinkling of actual ash from our fire pit.

This is such a great project, Shannon! I love the colors and the whole vintage Christmas feeling!

Note: Shannon also added a mini-tutorial for making the fruit-filled garland on her blog post!

Go visit Shannon’s blog post for more photos and that tutorial!

BONUS: I added 4 extra items as substitutes for supplies no longer available (they are included in that supply link above, so also on sale):
Duxbury Chair Kit (not a rocker but does have a vintage curvy back)
Green Sisal Tree with Snow – 4 Inch (not quite as tall as the one Shannon used; you may want to put this one on a short table)
Decorated Mini Christmas Tree (who knows! maybe you’d like green trees in those canisters on the mantel)
Small Brick Wall Stencil (for the back wall inside the fireplace)

The sale ends TONIGHT, December 26th at midnight PST.
