Free Shipping!

I forgot to mention in my Christmas post that I am offering free shipping for the next few weeks.  You can check out all of the leathery goodness in my Etsy shop that I'm offering AND, I am still listing new things!  I have a few more wallets and pouches to post and some new cuffs as well.  My goal for 2013 was to work hard and I plan on carrying that over into 2014.  I am on a good productive roll right now, and I hope to keep it that way.  Wish me luck:)

Christmas is Over.........Already?

The kiddos and the Christmas Tree at Wildberries
But it went by so fast!  It was peaceful and fun and quiet and all the good things that it is supposed to be.  I am finding myself having to reinvent our holiday celebrations since we really only celebrate amongst ourselves.  Since my Mom died, all of what we used to do is different, gone.  No more big gatherings at Grammy and Grampy's, no more gift exchanges between all of us, no more frilly Christmas dresses and dress pants.  It is what it is now, just simply a day to appreciate one another in pajamas, a trip to the park, and an evening walk to see the Christmas lights in the neighborhood down the way.  As sad as it is to not have the family closeness that we once did, what has happened has been a good thing for my little family of four, a day of giving and appreciation,  as opposed to a day of getting.  That works for me:)  I am sure it will change and morph over time as the kids grow and we change,  and that's o.k. too!  It's all about going with it instead of fighting it.  Change is good.  I wish you all the best and a super awesome new year!  Big hugs to you all!

New Things and Happy December!

Some newness for today:)  Now available in my Etsy shop.  The Trinidad Indie Holiday Craft Fair was a blast!  It was great to see lots of lovely faces and extra lovely craftiness.  I am so glad I got to be a part of it all.  I look forward to next time for sure!  So now, I am off to finish up the last of the coin pouches I have cut out for 2013 so I can have them ready for the "Not Too Late" Craft Fair in Arcata on the 21st.  Nice and busy, as always, and thats' how I like it:)  Have a great day!
