Being a maker means being one step ahead. You always need to be plotting for the next season and planning for the next holiday, well before anyone else even has to consider it. Right now I'm chugging away on my Christmas ornaments as I'm simultaneously prepping every little thing for the girls' Halloween costumes. It's a strange world to live in and I know many of you can relate. Whether you offer a product or are a blogging extraordinaire, being one step ahead is an important thing.
I'm extremely excited to have an extra set of hands helping me with my ornaments this year. I've done every season of everything by myself ALWAYS, so the thought of someone alongside me, stitching up animals twice as fast, is something my brain hasn't totally been able to wrap itself around! It's going to be wonderful!!
I've also been knocking out my custom orders along with planning the new holiday collection. These koalas traveled all the way to Australia. I love that!
For all of you makers and bloggers out there, do you enjoy the planning ahead, or do you wish you could just be "in" the season? I used to have a hard time with it, but now it's become my version of normal and I quite enjoy it.
