Creating Filling Shipping Goodies and More

I always tell myself every year I should start
working on my Christmas Projects in the Summer
and .........

It never Happens......

So I find myself like today going a bit crazy
making and filling orders and then 
packing up orders into the late evening hours

Oh please don't get me wrong
I am more then grateful to have orders
coming in and orders to pack-up
Note: I am a realtor business is terrible right now!

Well I must admit I did take an hour out
on Sunday to attend a great fund raiser 
"Gingerbread House Holiday kick-off"
Only 1 grand was able to go
And for a 2 year old I must say 
she really enjoyed it

I finally finished my Little Holiday Party Cups
I wanted to make sure each one was
filled with Vintage Delights
so I just kept fussing and adding 
Until I told myself they are done.....

I have 3 of them photographed and
in my Shop, I'll be trying to get more
photos taken tomorrow, it's always
hard to show all the detail, but believe me
they have a whole lotta love
in each sweet cup
 the glue gun is a calling....

I hear you - I always say I'm not going to wait until November, and I do. And I stay up 'til the wee hours packing, too. But your shop is looking wonderful, and those candy cups are really great!

I too am late night packer! There are so few moments of daylight for photos now that my camera & I are on standby during the day. Happy to hear that things are selling for you!

Hi Diane!

I know what you mean about thinking you'll work during summer and then just....don't. Maybe it's just the heat that make me much lazier than during the year, where I'm frantically running around trying to do it all at once.

Maybe you work best under pressure though, because your creations are adorable!

I'm so glad I'm not the only Last-minute-Nellie! I am going to start in the spring next year...seriously!..Your art is delightful! You have to have a lot of patience to make those beautiful putz houses...I love them!
Happy Creating Diane!

Cute trees! I am with you, I have no motivation to do Christmas in the summer and no place to store it until the holiday season.....So, I guess we just run around like chickens with our heads cut off this time of year LOL!
