all Christmas Crafted out....

Well I have been crafting for Christmas since August.  
Yes, when you have a booth space, business, etsy shop etc you are on the retail calendar and sometimes that basically sucks.  
When everyone else is getting into the swing of "the spirit of the season"  we are tired of it.
I declared myself done today.  I took in my last Christmas items to my booth and informed them that it is all I am doing.  
I will not be accepting any more special orders nor making any more Christmas items. 
I am cleaning up the studio- packing away all the holiday fabric, papers, etc.  Boxing them up till next summer.  I am clearing it to get a nice clean slate.  
Then I am going to get some projects cut out and ready to go for Valentines Day.  
But the studio will close down for all business as of end of day on the 21st.  
I want to just hang with the kids, bake cookies, watch Christmas movies and just be "mom".  
These are the last items I took in today:
One Christmas sheet music wreath.
And then I took in two sheet music wreaths for the New Years.

 So I might be a bit scarce on here till after Christmas but then I'll be showing some fun Valentine crafts that I am making for the space.
Until then - enjoy
