The Busiest Time of Year

It's been a few weeks since my last post and I'm feeling guilty about neglecting my poor blog. But the the holiday fairs are over and I'm back. Unfortunately, it's not for very long.

Let's start with the good news: ETSY SALE! Receive 10% off when you use coupon code: HOLIDAY. Good until 12/17.

Okay, the bad news: the holidays are NOT over. And I'm heading back to my bunker---I mean, my studio. (Yes, I upgraded my work space so it's now an official studio; I have a door to prove it!) Presents to make, holiday cards to design, and kids' schedules to organize. 'Tis the season...

One little story to share with you:

Last night my son Mack was sitting at the dining room table, lost in his thoughts and chuckling to himself. Curious to break into the mind of a precocious eight year old boy, I asked him what was so funny.

"Mommy," he began with a smile still on his lips, "I finally know what a round of applause means. It's just when you clap for someone."

I tilted my head to the side and gave him an inquisitive look. "Oh, yeah? What did you think it meant before?"

Mack held up his hands and positioned them so the tips of his fingers and the bases touched, forming an O. "I thought people were saying 'a round applause' and how stupid is that? You can't even make a sound with your hands when they are like this."

We looked at each other and then laughed for a good five minutes. Let's give Mack a "round applause" for getting that one!

Until next time.
