Bright Touches for the Holidays

December 10, 2012

I don’t know about you but weekends are getting crazy! Between work, Christmas parties and trying to squeeze in fun things with the kids, it’s been even more of a whirlwind than usual. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to squeeze everything in and some things, like mailing out Christmas cards, may very well have to wait until the New Year. But I’m loving every moment of life at the shop (well, maybe not the ones that involve paperwork…) and we were so excited to be featured in The Province newspaper this weekend. Not just the tiny blurb that we’d expected but a FULL PAGE featuring two of our holiday ornament DIY’s…so cool, right?

I can imagine how busy you are! I know I’m feeling it and thank goodness I had a get together with my best friends last night just to be able to vent a little about it together. All is well and now I just need to get those pesky Christmas cards out, bake, shop, wrap, walk the dog ……… You get it

I know, I have to keep reminding myself to breathe…and drink water…not to mention eat a vegetable or two! Busy times but hope you’re able to rest up this week, Will :)
