Hello my friends–
I’ve had this post in process for a few weeks now, planning on sharing with you about our simple Christmas plans and what was going on in the shop— yet I never had time to sit down and do it! And now here I am, the day after Christmas….finally getting to it. Well, that’s 2020 for you, isnt it? Surely its better late than never…
The last few weeks have been a whirl and a rush, even more so than usual. Aside from the Christmas rush of filling, packing and mailing orders, I also had my youngest home doing virtual school for two out of three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I did manage to stay on top of things and get mail out pretty constantly, and then of course….the US postal service pretty much fell apart! If you placed an order this month and it has yet to arrive, you should be able to check your shipping for your item within the “purchases and reviews” section of your etsy account. Through there select your order and you should see a link to track the item. It has all been so incredibly hit-and-miss as to when things arrive. And it’s so incredibly frustrating, as I try to process things very quickly from my end. If you ordered from me this holiday season— THANK YOU— and I hope it all arrives as quickly as possible!
Here at my house we had a pretty simple Christmas and just stayed at home in our lazy clothes! We had plenty of food and plenty of treats, and everyone got some nice presents. Our BIG family present this year was— a puppy! I will share a photo of him here soon, but there are some photos of him on my instagram account already!
I am also thankful for some wonderful gifts from far away friends that thankfully arrived in time for Christmas! I was also given this amazing collection of vintage Tasha Tudor Christmas cards— aren’t they charming?
Now that the holiday rush as passed, I am turning my attention to 2021, although if this year taught me anything, its to not make any concrete plans! However, I am hoping to have more pattern booklets to share with you, and of course I need to get painting for the 2022 calendar! That will be fun. And I am also looking forward to enjoying quiet winter days, where there is no rush, and I can let my imagination run wild and get some good, cozy painting time in. I want you to know that I appreciate SO MUCH your being here and for purchasing from my etsy shop! I hope you get some nice, slow time in the coming weeks as well.
I plan on posting again without such a large gap, and I hope to have some wonderful things to share with you in the new year! I hope you had a peaceful, joyful Christmas, and I wish you health and happiness in the new year! I think we all deserve it!~
