So, this morning with my coffee, I am sitting here writing to you and I've decided to CALM DOWN and take a deep breathe and look at what is really going on. I don't have a list of things I want to make/buy yet. That is making me insane. So, by the end of the evening, I plan on making that list. You get to hold me accountable. I also know that as my children are getting older, the Holiday shopping etc. is less and less. They know that the big man is on a budget and that the Christmas and Thanksgiving celebrations are more about family than gifts. Now, as long as I keep reminding the little girl inside me that LOVES to gift people and make PERFECT celebrations, we should be OK.
I know I don't have a lot of time to be making things, but I do have some really great workshops coming up and that should get my Christmas cards made and the beautiful Advent calender done. I know that will be a wonderful gift for someone! There - 2 things off my list!! I feel better already. This blogging thing can be cathartic at times. It allows me to slow down and breathe for a minute. I needed that this morning. Thank you.
So, back to the upcoming workshops! I am so excited to be offering a wonderful ADVENT CALENDER workshop on October 28 from 1 - 5 PM. I think that using this calender will be a tradition that your family can look forward to for years to come. It is cut using the new ARTISTE cartridge from CTMH and this will be a great time to preview it if you don't already have it. The kit includes everything you will need, and I will provide the space and instruction to make it happen. The cost is only $44.95 plush shipping and tax. I do need to get these ordered before the 20th of October, so please contact me if you would like to join us.
And now, I am off to get some much needed house cleaning done. Maybe that will alleviate some of my anxiety about the Holidays too! See you soon! Connie
