Christmas Countdown: 3 days!

Wow! I feel very Christmassy at the moment. It's been chilly here in Florida which has helped to make it feel like December.

And it's only ONE day until we head to Alabama! We will drive up tomorrow in the early afternoon. My husband will work first for a few hours and then we will leave. It's the first time I won't be in Florida for a Christmas since 1983, when I was a toddler in New York City, before we moved to FL in the summer of 1984. (I was born in 80)

My Etsy sales have been good for me for the holiday season. I wasn't expecting much action after last week because I just thought everyone would be too busy to shop online. But surprisingly, I received at least one order per day since last Wednesday! I feel blessed with it. I know I put a lot of work into it sometimes so it's nice when it pays off.

I sold this pillow on Sunday and it's being shipped today, a made to order pillow.

I had sold the first one at the end of November, and am happy to have sold it a 2nd time over the weekend. I plan to list it again after my trip to Alabama because it's also good for Valentine's Day! I call it the "Whitest Winter. Cardinal Love holiday pillow".

I love red and white together for Christmas decor. Here are some fun Etsy items in that color scheme. May your days be merry and bright!!

Oh how exciting to be leaving your state! Be careful, the holiday traffic is going to be complete madness. I hope that you and your family have a very merry Christmas!
