Thoughtful Thursday – Creating Time

The past few weeks have been very busy. The next few weeks will likely be even busier. I suppose it is just that time of the year, as school semesters wind down and holiday shopping picks up. 

This is our first holiday season with the shop, and we did not quite know what to expect, or how to prepare. Though I think we are working quite well through the early holiday season, it is definitely a shift from what we are normally used to in regards to the shop. Visitor numbers are sky-rocketing, and as much as we would love to be introducing a ton of entirely new items to the shop right now, our focus is on building up our stock of current favorite items.

Time just seems to be moving so quickly! It seems like just a few weeks ago that we opened the shop, a few days ago that we were building up our summer inventory, and a few moments ago that we were making plans for the holiday season. Suddenly, it is all upon us, and although at times stressful, it is also exciting.

Though I could easily fill my days with homework and shop related tasks, I do think it is important to create some time to just relax and enjoy the season. Its easy when you spend as much time on the Etsy website as we do – so many shops are rolling out their holiday inventory, and some amazing treasuries have graced the front page in recent days. I’ve yet to start my holiday shopping, but I definitely have some ideas just from browsing the amazing shops over at Etsy.  I for one am not a huge fan of over-crowded holiday malls, but I do quite enjoy browsing shops from the comfort of my own home.

I know this is a very busy time of the year for most of you out there, but over the next few weeks I challenge you to create some time to enjoy the season. Whether that means you browse online for fun like me, take a walk outside and (hopefully) enjoy the weather, or just take a quick break for a cup of coffee, make some time. Enjoy.

Treasury Tuesday – On and On

A treasury of things I would like in my stocking :p hence the on and on and on, cause I could browse and find things I like forever

Christmas in July

If you’re like me, every year when summer rolls around you think to yourself “I’m going to be pro-active and get my holiday shopping done early this year!”. Then, life happens and you’re paying a trillion dollars for next day shipping on Amazon.

Lets make a pact. This year, we WILL be on top of our shopping! This not only saves us a lot of time and stress come the holidays, but it also saves us money because we’re not forced into buying expensive “this will do” gifts at the last minute.

For many Etsy shops, the first of this month marks the launch of Christmas in July 2010! Whether you celebrate Christmas or just enjoy gift giving to celebrate a new year, take a moment to browse through our shop to see a ton of great gift options.

We have holiday themed products, and tons of stuff for around the house!

All month long watch for new exciting products such as new swiffer colors, sets of dryer sheets, hand towels and more!
