It’s mid July...time to start working again. The pressures on .....Halloween is coming! The store is set to open August 22nd so we hope to see everyone then. Until that time it’s work....and more work!
It’s May 22. I’ve done nothing. No crafting, no anything. Living in the time of Covid 19 has forced me to be still. Maybe this has been a much needed change. Time to focus on myself. I’m sure my Halloween work will be calling to me soon. Maybe not....who knows. I know one thing, retirement isn’t for me. We need to keep growing. Maybe just in a different way. Time will provide the answers if we listen closely.
Oh winter how we hate you! It’s cold inside and out. So far I managed to reorganize my studio and get a head start on Easter work. The work is slow going as I find myself being distracted by playing Solitaire on my iPad most of the time! The store will reopen March 7th for the Spring season so I really need to get my butt in gear and get going. We will have some super cool items coming soon so keep in touch.....and stay warm!
Summer proved to very busy around here. The big project was having the store and house finally painted. It turned out better than we even expected! We are now working like little elves in the studio on our Christmas creations. Fall has moved into central Pa but it’s a reminder that Christmas is right around the corner. Guys busy making feather trees including a six foot one this year for the store. I’m busy with belsnickles and everything else. Time....we need more time!
I just looked at the calendar! How can September be passing by so fast? I feel like it just started. Well we are busy in Christmas work even though we are still selling Halloween in the store. I’m in Santa and snowmen mode and Guys working on feather trees. This year we will have a new reproduction of an antique green with red tips tree. This is a beautiful tree. There’s also several new belsnickles this year. The large red one pictured came from Belarus in Eastern Europe. I liked him because of the unique box hat. We are expecting another belsnickle in this week. This one is a small candy container unlike any I’ve ever seen so that’s always exciting! The third new belsnickle is finished and in the store now. He’s a nice little fellow with a kind expression. Just a reminder we are only open right now Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10-4. Starting November
1st we will go back to our regular hours. We had shortened our hours because the store and house were being painted. The project is completed but the hours will stay the same until November. This gives us more time to work!
