Tuesday's Tip

Or, what could be called what I learned this holiday season - the hard way! Those of you who are regular or frequent visitors may have noticed a lapse in posts. On the eve3ning of the 14, I became ill with a very nasty and long lasting stomach virus (no worries, I will not be providing the unsavory details!). Thankfully, earlier that day, I had completed the bulk of my Christmas shopping.  This illness lasted a long time - actually yesterday, I can say was a normal day. So, I was way behind in everything that needed to be done. So, things to keep in mind:
1. Shop during the year. Some of you do (kudos!) and some of you only think about it (like me!). You never know when the unexpected will hit.
2. Christmas cards - I make about 50-60 a year. However, I purchase about 50 store bought cards (I have learned that not everyone appreciates hand made cards). Start early in your design and fabrication - I am thinking of July! Also, you can easily address cards well in advance. Trust me - this will save a lot of time should you become ill.
I hope you all had a healthy and wonderful Holiday!
