Yup, that’s me. I just got SLAAAMMED with work yesterday. I knew it was coming, but I didn’t think it was all going to happen on the SAME DAY, gah. This means I’ll be working through the holiday weekend, including Thanksgiving Day just to get my head above water with all 3 projects. While the schedule and deadlines look kind of impossible from where I’m standing right now, in the end I always seem to find a way of pulling out extra hours in the day to get it all done. I’ll find a way.
On the W&S side of things, the holiday season this year will be a bit different than last. We only worked on large corporate gift orders last year and shut down our websites the first week in December because we couldn’t handle anything else on top of the volumes of gift orders. Last year was insane and not so fun. But this resulted in quite a few people emailing us this month wondering if we were going to shut down again. Fear not, fervent cookie lovers, for we will remain open to the public for business! We decided to focus less on corporate gifts this year because frankly, if we shut our shops again for a 2nd year, nobody would ever come to rely on us for holiday gifts and we’d forever be branded as “that shop that closes down during the holidays”, oh no!
And so here we are, at the cusp of another holiday season. We’re not really sure what kind of ordering madness we’ll face after Thanksgiving (busy, I hope, but maybe, just maybe it won’t be so crazy). We had a good idea going into Thanksgiving last year, but this holiday is still unknown at this point. And so, in the spirit of being screwed for the next 4 weeks, here are a few more spiraly vines:
As long as we don’t get tangled up in an unforgiving knot like this vine, we *should* be fine.
