Christmas Already???

Merry Christmas!! Ha Ha! Ok, I know it's not even Halloween yet, but I am working on Christmas items for my Etsy store. I'm not trying to rush the seasons so don't get mad at me...lol. I am actually behind on making Christmas items this year. I was extra busy with fall which was great! Most of my Christmas items have just come in so now I am on a roll! I will be adding a lot of new items to my store over the next several weeks. I have my first house to decorate on November 12 and for about two weeks after that I will be pretty busy decorating houses. I will try to keep my store stocked as much as possible during that time. However, there is only so much I can take on. So, that is why I am going to bust my booty to get a ton of items made over the next few weeks. Also, my stock is limited. There might be items I can duplicate, but some might be one of a kind. A lot of you seem to like the lantern swags so I will be making as many as I can. I just listed the ones below in my Etsy store. I will be making fun and whimsical ones along with traditional and elegant ones. I will also be making Christmas arrangements, tassels, frames, and even tree toppers! Just thought I'd get you thinking about Christmas!
 
Also, I am posting a lot of the items I have for sale on Facebook if you would like to follow me there. I am addicted to Facebook because it is quick and easy to post and comment. Alot of you are following me there, but if you are not I would love for you to join me! Also, I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest. I am not one to keep track of my followers but I looked today and have over 4000! Wow! The ideas are endless on that site...
 


 
 
Have a great Sunday!

These swags are just beautiful, Kristen! I am still enjoying the Fall one I ordered from you. I have it where I can see it everyday and walk past it several times a day. I know what you mean about getting things stocked and ready. For you especially since you do decorate others homes. I've been doing some Christmas things for weeks now getting ready for that holiday market in a few weeks.
