First off...before I even start. I must apologize for the horrible photos, but it's still the middle of the night and it's pitch black outside so the lighting is completely un natural!

But...I just couldn't wait to tell you...THEY ARE DONE!!!! Yes, that's right OLABELHE PAPER PATTERNS!!! I just finished editing and printing the very last one. This is one of the surprises I have been working on for you. I cannot tell you how I have struggled with this decision. Back and forth, back and forth weighing all the pros and cons and trying to make the best decision of whether to go to print or not. I cannot tell you how many requests I have had for these and I've always hated telling people "no, my patterns were only in downloadable format." But now that's going to change! 16 beautiful patterns are ready to be printed, with my 3 newest designs close behind. I am meeting with printers this week to discuss the options and then fingers crossed, it's a go! Eeeeeekkkk, I'm just giddy! Now to curl up and try to get an hour or so of sleep before the kids wake up....I am truly exhausted! Who am I kidding I am too excited to sleep. This is almost as good as Christmas morning!!!

I'm so excited about this! I recently ordered a number of your patterns, not realizing until after purchase that they were downloads. I was really disappointed when I got the message telling me to go download them. I much prefer the paper patterns, and am glad you made the decision to print them for sale.
