Getting A Jump On Things

I already sort of work on off-season items like Christmas ornaments all year long but this year – what with the #covid19 pandemic and the resulting everything by mail – I figured I would try harder to do fall and Christmas stuff well in advance.

Tentatively, fall and Halloween to go live in June and then Christmas to roll out in July. This helps with selling the stuff, of course, but also with the insanely slow mail. With all the safety precautions and all of the extra order by mail volume… mail service hasn’t been so speedy. And I worry a little that the US will just dissolve their federal postal service, stranding a lot of us who sell and buy from there.

Anyways, I’m experimenting with more vibrant pumpkins! This one rocked as a pumpkin and then I sort of wrecked it as a crooked little jack o’ lantern. Luckily, I loaded up on fresh orange clay! More pumpkin canes coming right up!

Starting to Look a Lot Like Christmas

The cold and snow arrived this week so we will get the appropriately wintry Christmas scene here. And, because I’m an enthusiastic cat mom we decorated the cats briefly. We caved and bought a jingle collar at a craft fair (from Jenny’s Bows and Meows). The cat that I thought would have a fit did not. The one that I thought would sit quietly in traumatized silence was a Nope. Go figure.

Merry Christmas from all of us!

ps. Jenny’s Bows and Meows does shows and farmers markets all over Saskatchewan. This is Seven, the day we adopted her, destroying one of Jenny’s toys.
