Things have been pretty hectic of late as I have been frantically getting ready for our annual event at New England Saltbox, called AUTUMN EVENING! It always happens the first weekend in October, and the shop gets decked out in all her finery for the start of the holiday shopping! Even though this has happened every year I have worked there, and is even marked on the calendar AND in my datebook, for some strange reason, it totally surprised me this year!! One minute it seemed like we were weeks away, and all of a sudden I realized it was happening THIS WEEKEND, or more correctly, TOMORROW!!! Oh my goodness!!!
Because of that, I found myself going in 3 different directions, and when that happens, SOMETHING just doesn't get done!!! Sadly, I was late on my Simply Primitives Update (and still don't know what I am sending to Sharon!!!!) Hopefully, I can get that off to her today! It is my first time being late and I feel like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland!!!
The other things I needed to do were to help get the shop decorated for the event, AND to get some of my handmades MADE!!! Both equally important and both demanding time, which we did not have a lot of!! So, the first part of the week was spent stitching, stuffing, stitching, painting, sanding, staining, and tag making and the last 2 days were spent Decorating and Display making, and thankfully, MOST of it got done!! I am also happy to say that I was able to complete some things too and was happy with what I got done!! Phew!!
So without further adieu, thanks to my wonderful photographer/husband Jeff, here are some pictures of what our customers will see when they come for their visit tomorrow!! I wish all of you reading this could come, but hopefully you will catch the Autumn Spirit and may it inspire you to create and decorate to your heart's content!!
