Christmas Countdown, if it aint' fun we aint doing it.

Only 47 days to Christmas.  This tidbit of information  creates very different responses based on your age in my experience.  My son, who is 5 thinks that is too far away and can hardly wait.  As a producer of pottery that can't be "cranked" out and sold, I find that it creates pressure and stress. Should I be doing more sales, or putting more work in stores, or should I just be happy with what I have done, and focus on marketing.  I know that I am prone to try and go faster, and faster, but I should likely be working smarter (read slower).   What will the public demand??? It seems like there is a resurgence in the demand for creams and sugars?? Who knew?? 

I am deciding that I am going to enjoy the last 3 sales of the season, see sidebar for dates and places.  I will continue to produce while it is still fun.  As my wise friend Ray says, if it aint' fun , we aint' doin it.

At the same time, I look forward to all of the decorating, celebrations and my child's joy and wonder at the season. Friends will be home, and we will have "legitimized" visiting time.  Hope we all focus on the fun and non commercial aspects of the season with the same fervor that we use to attend to the "selling".

Great post Nancy! It is so important to remember to enjoy the season and spend time with family and friends. We really can get lost in the commercialism if we're not careful.
