Holiday's are Less stressful with a Keurig

If your a crafter..... Especially a crazy crafter/ business owner like myself. You've probably found yourself working away for long , long hours at a time. This Christmas season I was truly blessed. keurig and Influenster Canada came to me with an opportunity to test there Keurig 2.0. I have been ogling this machine since its inception to the market and world. I should explain.... I bought a single serve Keurig last year, and quickly fell in love with it. The only downfall was my husband over filling and causing slight “issues".

I digress though.

I've had the Keurig 2.0 for around two weeks now. The first week I had it was roughly the last week of shipping for A Bit Retro so it was quite crazy and hectic! A pumpkin spice latte or a yummy chai tea was exactly what I needed to start what ended up being 8 to 10 hr days. I love my job, but we all know coffee is quite often needed to get through the day. Being able to press a few buttons on a digital display and having my coffee ready in just a few minutes is exactly what the crafty Dr. ordered!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Happy Holidays!! and Here's to a Wonderful New Year!

Hey guys,

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza (sorry if I missed anyone :D )

I wanted to come back after a crazy hectic holiday season  to tell you a little bit of whats been going on, and what plans are being set in motion for 2015.

First of all I want to thank everyone who has supported A Bit Retro since the beginning of March, when we finally opened <3. I feel so grateful and honoured that I am finally able to do something I absolutely love to do! This year has been quite a year of ups and downs. Life is all about the ups and downs and how you deal with them. I truly believe that my struggles today will pave a beautiful future for my husband and I and our four legged children. I feel so blessed, and I owe a lot of that to you guys! My followers, friends, and wonderful customers <3

                                  YOU"RE THE BEST!!!

Now I want to let you know a little bit about whats going on right now to establish a wonderful. Fantastical. Inspirational. New Year.

2015 is going to bring us some new goals that will be in your favour and some changes as well!

Weekly Flash Sales
We will host a weekly Flash Sale on Facebook and Instagram, starting Friday January 2nd 2015. They will be available from midnight to midnight. All you need to do is send or comment your PayPal email and you will be invoiced ASAP :D Each Flash Sale will of course also have instructions below. So no need to worry there.

Quarterly Giveaways
January, April, July, and October will be host to the quarterly giveaway where we will have a few prizes up for grabs :D.....and I will have more info on that later on when it gets closer.

Guaranteed New Stock Weekly
My personal goal for the shop is to give you five new designs every week! and I'm already working on it right now <3

Shipping Changes
Now for the only bit of sad news. As of January 1st Our shipping costs will be changing. I don't want to, but I need/have to. So the changes below is how it will work as of January 1st. I do not overcharge on anything including my postage. Canada Post is very expensive, especially compared to USPS.

Canada: $2.00
U.S. $4.50
International: $10.00
 (Any shipping overage in shipping will be refunded back to the customer)

We will also be adding rush order options, and different quick serve shipping options as well.

As for what will be happening here on the blog!

The weekly tutorials and updates will all be coming back in full force. Shop updates will happen every week, and I want to do as many tutorials as I want :D I love to do crafts and I'm looking forward to getting back to it.

I can't WAIT for this new year to start and get everything going!

See you in the new year!!
