Thanksgiving has come and gone and now it's on to the next big holiday! I trust you all had a great Thanksgiving with many thankful blessings. We are so fortunate to have many blessings, some we take for granted every day. We stayed in Marion this year. Our boys were home and they enjoyed seeing their friends. While we missed being with family, it was nice to enjoy our home and all the leftovers!
I have been busy trying to get organized and unpacked after my Holiday Open House. Custom orders, phone orders and online orders have been coming in. Well, I even had customers shopping at the house on Thanksgiving Day! When relatives are in town, they want to shop!!
I did design a tree ornament made from antique chandelier prisms and sold almost all of them at the open house.(I made 60 of them!) I didn't advertise them because I didn't know if I could get them done. People bought a few one day and then came back the next day to buy 4 or 6 more! Guess I will have to keep them in the merchandise line! These ornaments sold for $7.00, which is a nice, inexpensive gift. It is wrapped in tissue and in an organza pouch....very festive looking! Of course any items besides bracelets, watches and necklaces, come wrapped in the pouch.
I had better get busy this morning. Just wanted to say hello as its been over a month since I wrote. PLEASE call me if you have any questions for gift giving ideas or to order. Remember to give me ample time to get your order in the mail so it reaches you in time!
Happy shopping, baking and decorating!
