Afternoon Sessions Vol. 7: New Things are Coming!Friday, October 30, 2015
You guys! This is a very exciting week :) (even though I've been down with a nasty cold!)
I know that Halloween is this weekend, but honestly, this year I have jumped right past that. I'm in Christmas mode already! But, November is only three days away, so I don't feel too guilty.
I finished my Christmas cards a couple days ago, and I'm working on/almost done with several other new products for the shop. I will have things ready to list in the shop at the beginning of next week! EEEK!!
I have loved being able to look back and see how much my stuff has changed from last year to this. I feel like I have learned a lot, and I can see a lot of improvement. I'm hoping for a successful holiday season this year!
Also, as I mentioned last week, I have another big piece of news! There's an upcoming craft market that I get to sell at this year!
Saturday, December 5th I will be at the Hip-Holiday Craft Market at the Flying M Coffee Garage in Nampa. My mom and I got a space together, and we will have Christmas decor, knit goods, bags, and of course, all of my paper goods :)
I tried to do this show last year, but it filled up fast! And in hind-sight, I think I probably wasn't really prepared for it anyway.
I would love to see you all there, and if you want more information, you can check out their website here.
I am so excited to be rolling out some new products, and I hope they're well received! It's been a lot of work, but it's been a lot of fun too. It's way past due that I expand my product line, and some of my old favorites will also be getting a face lift :)
So that's enough of the shop talk, here's some more of what I've been up to this week!
Reading: This tutorial on how to make a floor pillow. I'm going to make a doggie bed for my little fur baby!
Drinking: Some chai tea this week. Sometimes it's nice to change things up a little. I am thinking about trying to find some good loose leaf chai. Those who know me best know that I'm a bit of a coffee nerd. I tend to only buy organic whole bean coffee (which I then grind at home myself) and the only coffee makers I own are a Chemex and a French press! But when it comes to tea, I always just buy Lipton or some other pre-bagged stuff. Not that it tastes bad, but I'm sure I could find better! With as much as I enjoy a good cuppa chai, I can only imagine how much I would love a really good loose chai blend!
Listening: To the Home Alone soundtrack on Spotify. It's one of my favorite Christmas movies, and I'm trying to save it for the first snow day! So in the meantime, I'm making do with the music. Also, um, you must be living under a rock if you haven't heard Adele's new single! It's amazing :)
Loving: On my little Lemon of course. Even though she's coming into that crazy puppy energy! We still get in lots of cuddle time, and she's been a sweet little snuggle buddy since I've been sick. Also, the fact that my in-laws got to come and stay with us last weekend! We don't get to see them often enough, and I'm glad we got to spend some time with them.
That's what's been happening around here lately, what about you? Are you geared up for Halloween or are you ready to be past it like I am? Let me know! :)
And as always, thanks for stopping by!
