Don%92t forget yourself
I can't believe, after all the humbugging and Christmas decorations at Halloween, that it's almost here. It feels like I've been working around the clock between my day job and hours in the workshop every night, but I've almost got my Christmas orders done, and with any luck I'll have more than 2 minutes to sit back and relax before the big night! Hopefully the pieces I've been working on will bring joy to their new owners. What pleases me the most is that the last three substantial pieces have been custom orders that have been personal gifts, each one for the person making the order. It's such a pleasure to see people remembering to do something nice for themselves at this time of year. I know that the joy is in the giving, but hey, why not give something to yourself too? We all work hard every day and make sacrifices, and forget to be good to ourselves. So, as long as there is a minute left over, I think maybe I'll make myself something special too. If I can stay awake long enough. Peace.
