Harvest celebration

And now comes the crazy…..

Its the last week of October.  In my land, that means the crazy is now upon us.   The work week starts stretching from 5 days to 6 to 7.   The work day stretches from a 9 hour day to 12 to 15.  Meals get skipped.  I start watching the Waltons, Little House on the Prairie and The A Team – favorite quote: “I love it when a plan comes together.”

And you know what?

I love every minute of it.

It is crazy.  It is stressful.  It is physically and emotionally exhausting.  I love every minute of it.  Ok, maybe not every minute…11pm, I’m closing in on not loving it so much.  December 23rd I’m about done.   But generally speaking this is my time.

So come ride the wave with me.  Over the next several weeks I will be posting some of my new designs, as well as information on new programs we are starting – I hope that something catches your eye.

Smiles!

Changes, Gorillas, moving forward

I am flabbergasted at the response my gorilla post has received.  It was shared and reached by over 2900 people on Facebook alone, and I know that it was forwarded on other social media, printed it out, or emailed it to folks.  That is beyond my comprehension and beyond what I had hoped for.

I am gratified and so very glad that people have found it useful.  Someone suggested that my words might help save a life by giving others a way to communicate the indescribable – and I hope that it does.  I have left it up far longer than I intended to – primarily because I have been uncertain at how to follow up – and secondarily because I want to be sure folks can find it if they want to.  So I am going to push up my sleeves and see if I can figure out how to permalink it in here….

Moving forward, I do need to get back to real life and baskets.  We are in the fourth quarter and chaos should soon reign supreme around here – at least we hope so.    Keep your eyes here for updates on new designs and new promotions.  I will probably pop back over to the deeper topics too – seems like folks like to hear what I have to say.

In the meantime, thanks for all the shares and kind words – those are some serious gorilla tranquilizers.

Smiles,
