Sunday Lately :: Week 52

Dec 27, 2015

You guys.  You guysssss.  This is the last Sunday Lately of 2015.  What the crap?  The good news is that we are continuing the series through 2016!  A few change-ups, and the hosting is still being done by Angelica, Meghan, Nicole and myself, but through our new Blogger Tribe group.  The party continues, no worries.

This week’s themes: Doing, Appreciating, Designing, Humming, Expecting

Doing. A lot of smiling this week.  Christmas has been pretty excellent.  Personally, I don’t get stressed out over gifts for our family and friends, but the holiday season has been intense with Handmade Escapade.  I’m looking forward to the new year, new ventures, and being able to regain my regular pace again.

Appreciating. The fact that I can even complain about being busy with my business.  It can be super overwhelming to be self-employed.  The emails, the orders, the balancing of work and family…it’s a lot to handle.  But I’m also aware that not everyone is as lucky as I am, to be doing this.  I am completely appreciative of my customers, who keep my family fed and clothed!  Trust me, their business and support is not lost on me one bit.

Designing. Some new goodies for the new year.  And working on my .com site a bit more, to get it in full working order.  I’ve had it for a year now and it’s still not where it needs to be.  But it’s so hard to sit down and have time to make it happen!

Humming. Allllll of the Christmas carols.  Louis has been singing them non-stop for a few weeks now.  Thank you Louis.

Expecting. To be suffering from holiday hangover for the next few days.  I’m EXHAUSTED!  Holy crapola!  Can I sleep for a week to catch up?
