is this year going by uber fast? Seriously, I know I think this every year, but this year I don't feel like I even remember summer. We did have a cooler summer, so maybe my brain just thought it was a really long spring. But, I digress. The fact is, it's almost that time of year again, THE HOLIDAYS. Next week a lot of us will be celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and family. Well, in our house we wear pajamas all day, watch MST3K, and get take out.
But whatever your traditions are, the fact is it's all starting now. I mean Christmas is only 37 days away. ONLY 37 DAYS. If you ask my daughter, that's a really long time from now, but us adults know, that is crazy close.
I have a long list of handmade items that need to be made and I haven't even started, ugh. I'm terrible at getting projects started. But I have been working super, super hard to get new holiday themed patterns up in the shop. I have a bunch of new peyote and loom patterns as well as a few new brick stitch pendent patterns. I've also added a ton of new pen wrap patterns. Which, by the way, make great last minute gifts because they don't take any time to make. Forgot to make someone something? Make a pen wrap. Trust me, they'll love it.
I'm also working on adding a gift certificate to my shop. That way the beaded in your life can decide for themselves which patterns they want. I'm hoping to get that up before the holidays for those last minute shoppers (raises hand).
Right now I'm off to finish up a custom finished bracelet for an amazing new client. She really is a joy to work with and is why I love doing custom work.
Stay frosty friends.
Just a girl that loves to bead, take photos, and cuddle with her new baby and her pug.
