Christmas musings on the Sunday before Christmas...

Good morning to all on this Sunday before Christmas! (Sunday morning Coffee and Etsy will be back next week, by the way). I am sipping the last of my coffee, sneaking a piece of chocolate and thinking about putting up the tree and wrapping gifts. Yes, I am a bit late in that area, but happily so - I've had a lovely time all month creating jewelry for my customers. Although it was a wee bit stressful getting everything finished, I loved being a part of so many people's Christmas giving. I enclosed personal notes for friends, hid return addresses to keep the contents a surprise, collaborated on designs for parents, children and wives, and generally had a merry time being one of Santa's elves! I've learned how to be a faster (and better, yay!) metalsmith by making so many pieces in such a short time.



And last, but not least - I've learned to be a lightning quick packer and shipper - you should see how fast I can tie a bow! Here's a peek at shipping central one busy afternoon.....

Now I am off to work on family gifts, start defrosting the holiday bird, and start decking the halls. Hope you are all enjoying the season - talk to you soon!
