Yes, feeling jolly, but also busy… as I’m sure you are as well!

Despite the busyness and (honestly) a bit of home-sickness it really has been a jolly season so far… hope it is for you too… and if you don’t see much of me in the next few weeks… you’ll know why! 😉

Also… just a side note… last day to order from my shop for delivery by Christmas is December 16th and the shop will be closed from December 21st – January 1st.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s important to be thankful everyday, but especially on this day… to pause and take time to reflect on all the one million and one reasons! So, while you are indulging in the turkey and pumpkin pie and all the other wonderfulness that is enjoyed in your family, take a minute to list out a few of those things.

One of the things on my 35 by 35 list was to start a 1000 gifts list and continue it… what better time to start that list than in this Thanksgiving month… and that’s just what I’ve done. I thought about all the different ways I could record those gifts and decided to just keep an ongoing list on twitter… I’ll have a record of it and be able to share it at the same time… you can follow me if you’d like… @alterediris. I’m trying to add at least 5 a day… and maybe you’d like to join me? If not on twitter, how about in a traditional notebook or on a chalkboard in your home or on a list app on your smartphone? There are so many possibilities… it doesn’t have to be perfect but it’s a great habit to get into… they say it’ll make you 25% happier… so why not, take time and count your blessings! Today’s a great day to start! 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving! May you truly enjoy this day!

Etsy Shop Update

 Hello… TGIF! Just wanted to pop in quickly and let you know I’ve got tons of new stuff in my shop… mostly prints, but also a few new originals, including the set above. And some fun new accessories using these designs as well!

Also… Monday is the one year anniversary of my shop and so I’m celebrating with a sale… now through the end of November!

ALL prints are 30% off and select originals are… HALF off!!! So, I hope you’ll take a minute to check it out! Thanks for your support!

Have a wonderful, wonderful sunshiny weekend! 🙂
