A peek...

Just a little peek into my world lately.

Packages galore. 20-30 a day. For me, that's a lot.
12-14 hour days making jewelry and neglecting my house.
I learned that I can't do it on my own next year.
I had help from family this year, but next year I'm going to need more help.

A wonderful gift from Ruth.
It came, literally, when I was in tears from stress.
And then I bawled like a baby because I couldn't believe someone would be so nice!
I want to be Ruth when I grow up.
The problem is I think she's younger than me. And much more hip.
And probably skinnier.
And lives a life in England. And says words like fab, mum, pyjamas, and pub.
Maybe if I start talking like her, I'll be cool like her...
Seriously - dark chocolate, coffee, citrus, a blinged up handmade ornament - this package could not have been more tailored to me.

A little $2 wreath I whipped up late last night.

Original Snowman art by The Boy.

Wishing you the warmest and most glorious Christmas Eve you've ever had.

Merry Christmas, Becki! I'm so glad God is blessing your business so richly. Praying you'll get the extra help you need so you don't go nuts! :) (It's hard not to go nuts this time of year!)

I just wanted to pass on how much I love the snowman art by The Boy. It is just gorgeous. Please tell him one of your readers is an admirer. I think you have a very talented family there!
