Okay, so the Trash Ties response was amazing! And a bit
overwhelming. We've turned our house into a full-on workshop and I'm
experiencing Christmas through the eyes of Santa's elves. Thank you
for your orders. We're making and packaging them up round the clock.
I've added a post to the Trash Ties blog to answer some questions about
shipping, security, applying discounts, extended coupons! and such. If you've placed an order or are about
to, you should have a read through that post. (There's also a giveaway!)
Other than the elvish nature of this week's work, we haven't yet had a chance to break into Christmas this year. The Christmas decorations are stacked in boxes in the middle of our living room and have been for two weeks. This year will have to be condensed, with extra Christmas effort and activities packed into the end of next week. We'll make it particularly fun so the kids don't notice they had to wait!
Oh gatz! I'm getting weepy. My friend's two daughters are over to help and they're watching Fiddler on the Roof while they work. Sunrise, Sunset is bellowing from the other room and I can't get through that song without tearing up, even if I'm in a distant room focussed on writing this post! I've got to wrap it up before they get to the Chava Ballet song, the one that starts, "Little Bird, Little Chavala." Oh forget it, I can't even type it out. I'll move on. One of my favorite movies, anyhow!
The fish? I'm looking forward to the fish. I made him for our Christmas tree about 5 years ago or so. Beyond my funky junky collection, he's one of my favorite ornaments. I just love the idea of a goldfish swimming around in a pine tree. A few more days to go...
