Slow Times Bring Inspiration

This is the time of year when most people's sales slow down. Mine do and I'm good with that. I don't think I could handle sales on top of all the stresses of getting ready for Christmas...on top of the fact that we're having our living room floor replaced (and doing it ourselves no less) right before the big day.

I find that taking a break from creating actually inspires me more later on. So I don't worry about creating new work, taking photos, or even posting to my store during these times. I just relax, enjoy the quiet, and spend time with family.

My hope for all of you is a peaceful and stress free Christmas with family and friends. Here's to lots of inspiring new ideas in the new year!

I haven't been stressed out so far this year. I do pretty much the same things, so that's probably why.

Just enjoy your time with your family. That's one of the greatest things about this time of year.

Big hug. :)

I couldn't agree more! Christmas usually doesn't stress me (probably because I don't have a big family to shop for & feed!), but it's nice to be able to relax a little after the Christmas rush at the beginning of the month!
