Happy New Year to all of you!
I just realized I forgot to do my annual Christmas Season Report.
As long-time readers know, every year Christmas, well…. kicks my ass.
From being overwhelmed by (and under prepared for) massive coaster orders – to bonking my head on some usually-inanimate-but-for-some-reason suddenly-kinetic object such as a wall or the driveway, each Holiday Season has been a sort of happy nightmare.
However, this holiday season was quite successful while simultaneously being less ass-kicky!
(OK, in all honesty I did hit my head in the kitchen just before my Christmas party. But I will go to my grave safe in the absolute sureness that that cabinet was NOT there before.)
So….. a lot of coasters.
And everything went out on time!
The only real hitch occurred when my mailman picked up 50 outgoing orders from the porch and hit “delivered” on his scanner rather than “picked up.”
This led to 50 panicky customers getting email notifications that their Christmas presents had been delivered to some random address in Los Angeles.
However, everyone, to-a-person, was totally understanding and completely patient. I really do have the BEST customers.
And now I want to give a heartfelt THANK YOU! to all of you who have followed along.
In all sincerity your comments, encouragement, (occasional mocking) and support is a huge part of what keeps me going and trying new things.
I hear you in my head as I work (along with all the other voices that my therapist says I should ignore) and, honestly, I wouldn’t even be close to where I am without you all.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
So I wish you all the very Happiest of New Years and I’m really looking forward to sharing 2019 with you!
