December 5, 2013
IT’S DECEMBER, HOLY FREAKING TURKEYS!! All caps completely necessary. I got back from an amazing week with family in Corolla Sunday night and realized something during the 4 hour solo sojourn: I will be at my home in Raleigh for less than 6 days in the month of December. SIX DAYS YOU GUYS. LIKE, WHAT?
Yeah. So. It’s super exciting but also super like…nope, just super exiting. At publishing time, I’ve already hopped a plane for the west coast with my bestie best, then 3 days after returning from that, I’ll be heading down south with Man-Piece and parental units to Disney World, and then 2 days after we return from that, it’s time to head to parental units’ home for Christmas celebrations, wedding of a dear friend, and then it’s January. POOF. GONE.
I’ve scheduled just enough time in between trips to send out orders from the shop, do 30 seconds worth of laundry, check my mail, and good thing I don’t have a pet. It’s amazeballs. You can be sure none of the website updating or branding changes will be taking place this month, because duh.
SMALL BIZ FAVS
Is it weird to list my own things as a fav? Maybe. But I really love this collection so oh well. The Like, Totally Awesome Gift Set combines all the like totally awesome cards into one perfect gift. Because they are like totally cute and the perfect gift, don’t you think?
STICKERS ARE FOR GROWN UPS TOO. Go snag.
Em Dash Paper Co. is one of my all-time favorites, and I swear THIS YEAR I will decide WHICH of her amazing creations to buy, if only so I can say I have. It’s one of those shops you find and want allthethings like, right now.
And this snapshot of her shop doesn’t even cover her amazingly beautiful holiday offerings. GETCHUSOME.
Joyful Roots is obviously next, because DUH she is awesome, collabo’d with me on fun things, and I love all of her designs and creations AND she just had a baby who is the newest cutest human on the planet. Plus, HOUND DOG PILLOW:
DONE. Kim has everything from pillows, cards, original art, even her own line of fabric. SHE RULES.
Give me a follow on the Tweeter to find some other amazing small biz [mostly] ladies. I know people.
What are YOU doing to celebrate the end of the year? How was your thanksgiving? Who are your favorite small businesses to support? Let’s hear it! Huge December hugs from me to you!
