The day after
I truly hope everyone has had a wonderful, joyous Christmas. I know it sounds bad but I am glad our holiday season is almost to an end. Only because after New Years we will have gotten through all the major holidays for our first year without mom. Of course we have tried hard but the emotions have gotten the best of us. I truly look forward to working on healing to the point that next year I can enjoy the holidays with my children and grandchildren as I always have. Even when there has been little or no money we have found a way to have fun and be together.
I just started back to school last week. One week of class and then we went on Christmas break. But that is truly okay, I am out of practice on the school work and the week was a bit overwhelming. But I look forward to getting back into the swing of things in January. In the mean time I decided to stop worrying about my shop but while I spend hours sitting with dad everyday I have been stitching a nice stock pile of new pieces. Sometime in January I will start posting them and filling up all the empty spaces. Or not. I am truly spending a lot of time thinking about what I could do different. Etsy has not worked for me the last year. All the changes they have been going through are very unhelpful to small shops like mine. But from what I am looking at there does not seem to be much better out there so maybe this will be the time to work on putting my items up for sale directly on my website. This will require a bit more thought.
Now that blogger is allowing me to post pictures again I will start showing you some of the new work soon. In the mean time Everyone have a great New Year!
