I have been busy trying to get my shop ready for the big Christmas Season. It is funny because I was busy sewing over the summer, but it didn’t seem like such a frantic pace. All of the sudden August came and went – in a FLASH! And then September is here, Nicolas is back in school, and I am wondering how I am going to finish all of my planned projects.
I have my first craft shows coming up in November and December (hopefully – I haven’t been accepted to the December show yet). I am nervous about these because I have never done one before. But I am also really excited to see what people think of my products in person. I think it will be a great learning experience. And I just started on my first large order for a wonderful customer and owner of an online herbal company (more about this later!).
So I have a few things that will keep me very busy until the end of the year. The key is to relax and enjoy. 🙂
Because I have so much on my plate (by my standards!) I was very happy to finish and list a few Christmas tree skirts. I have had these on my to-do list since LAST Christmas, even had the material and everything! Last year, I finally decided it was time to replace our sad tree skirt that didn’t even completely wrap around the entire base of the tree. We have a really large, sturdy tree stand and it would always show underneath our puny skirt. So a few weeks before Christmas I made a 55″ diameter tree skirt in a gorgeous Laurel Burch holiday print. It improved the look of our tree so much! I thought this would be a great thing to include in my shop offerings!
Here are some views of the tree skirts that I have listed:
