This year I am doing much better at not stressing over custom orders, and enjoying holiday stuff when I'm not working on orders. Last year I was quite tense, wondering if I could handle the number of orders I got.
But this year, Even though I have slightly more orders than last year, my organization is better. And I'm thinking of my orders one at a time, instead of keeping the total number in mind constantly. This really helps! I have kept right on schedule (sometimes shipping early, even). And now, I'm down to just three more dolls before Christmas!
Plus, in between I've been enjoying wonderful holiday things with my family.
Check out my neat vintage Christmas cards! I found them at a thrift store. I didn't have quite enough for everyone on my list, but they were so neat, I couldn't resist. They were almost ALL different from each other. Here are some of them:
Aren't they cute? I wish I had remembered to take pictures in the daylight and before I'd sealed most of them up.
It was a task that felt great to finish!
We also attended my son's school concert, which got us all in the Christmas Spirit (even though our seats sucked).
And our tree seems extra pretty this year. I've been clocking plenty of time sitting beside it, sipping a seasonal beverage!
I hope that your Holiday Season is as happy and cozy as can be!
