Winding Down for the WEEK

It's Thursday 10:30 or so and I am watching ER & making homespun pillows! My day isn't over yet, although it won't be long. I usually stay up late & watch the old Frasier reruns on Lifetime, but I don't know if I can stay awake that long tonight.

Well, another week has come and almost gone...can't believe that it's almost Friday already! But, I have accomplished a lot the past few days and am quite pleased with how the week is winding down. Today was very productive for me and I finished up a lot of orders & got them to the Post Office before 5:00. I think I can FINALLY see the light at the end of the tunnel for the first time in a few weeks! Mind you, I'm not complaining, it's one of the busiest times of the year for us crafters. But, I have been so far behind in making & shipping orders lately, that it is difficult to get caught up, let alone make anything new! LOL ! Almost everything on my web site is handmade by little ole me and sometimes it gets difficult to stay ahead. I had a couple of huge orders and several wholesale orders that kinda took all my time for a week or so,
but they are all finished now. And now I can move on!!
I didn't want to post the pic until I was sure that Gayle, my Fall Swap partner had received her package of goodies. She received it today, so wanted y'all to see what I sent.... what do you think? Everything was handmade by me and I hope she was pleased with the items that I chose for her.

This was the 3rd swap that I have participated in & they are so much fun! If you haven't ever done one, give it a try sometime. You most likely won't be disappointed!

Until next time,

Hugs,
Shari

I know what you mean! It's tough when you do both retail & wholesale.

Great! I'll add you to the list for the Prim Times Mag ad. That makes 8 of us! So it will be 3.29 each. I'll let you know the details ASAP. Deadline is October 23rd.
