Preparing for Maternity Leave with a FLASH Sale

When I gave birth to Emmett, I didn't take any maternity leave. I worked until 2 hours before I left to the hospital, running around like a madwoman getting last minute orders out. After 25 hours of labor, 5 hours of pushing and a c-section, I picked up my laptop the very next day and answered customer emails as I breastfed from my hospital bed. Why? Because I was a new mom, literally by just a few hours, and I had no idea how to focus on just motherhood. I figured I'd just juggle and make it work. I quickly learned that I couldn't and now, almost three years later, I think I might have figured it all out. Maybe. I hope.

As my due date for this baby quickly approaches, I'm laying down the groundwork for actual maternity leave and I have to admit, I'm pretty excited about it. When you run your own business, it's rare that you actually take real time off. Even on vacation, I'm answering emails and placing orders for materials. This woman could use a break!

My due date is just 5 weeks away but it's anyone's guess when I might actually birth this kiddo so at the moment, my plan is to close for the month of September. Of course, that's subject to change if I go into labor early or late. But that's the plan at the moment. I hope to re-open my studio the first week of October as Fall marathons get under way and in anticipation of the Holiday gift giving season.  So in anticipation of maternity leave, I'm having a last hoorah FLASH SALE! I have no idea what my work load may be around holiday, especially as a mom of 2, so this just might be the last sale of the year.

Today only, everything on Erica Sara Designs is 25% off! And yes, this includes sale! I rarely ever have 25% off on my site so this is really exciting. You don't even need to enter a code, the discount will appear in your shopping cart. Sorry but this discount cannot be applied to previous orders.

Happy Shopping!
