I love Christmas! I remember thinking it was the most magical day of the year and part of me still believes that. People seem to come together much easier and get along so well when it's Christmas time, which is pretty much the whole month of December! Think of it, people actually liking each other for a WHOLE month!!
This year I have an Etsy shop. To be honest I have not sold a lot of items on Esty for Christmas. Mostly because I did not participate in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales. I did however have a VERY successful craft show in Steinbach last month! I am currently still working on orders from that day! People actually came out to the show to see me!! (Needless to say I felt VERY special!!)
So THANK YOU to all those who have purchased from me this winter so far!! It has been lovely to work with all of you and to really get my name out there!! Sometimes I am still in awe that people would find my work interesting or gratifying. Really it is a humbling experience to think there is a doll out in Australia that was made by ME!! Never in my life did I think I would be a "business" owner let alone an artist who actually creates new things!!
Last year I pretty much made ALL of the Christmas gifts I gave out! BUT thanks to all you who have supported me (whether with a purchase or encouragement!) I have been able to BUY Christmas gifts this year!! And not the willy nilly expensive gifts but ones from the heart that I think my family will just love.
This year IS full of magic!! Magic that so many people seem to find me interesting (or at least the things I make!) and magic to have a 2 year old who can now converse about SANTA!!! YAY FOR SANTA!! She is such a precious little doll I am ever so grateful we can give her a wonderful Christmas full of love, Santa and of course the birth of Jesus!
Merry Christmas all!! Enjoy this time with the ones you hold most dear! (I know I will!!)
