Message to The Elves
Tuesday, December 9, 2008
We are all like Santa's elves this time of year...working at our machines, glueing, painting, assembling, packing and shipping all these gifts in time for Christmas. I know many of you are making crafts, decorations and handmade gifts for all of your friends and family too. It is a busy time!
As I sew my days (and nights) away, I am thinking of you. All the orders are IN at Polka Dot Market, now they just all need to go OUT!
I've even put my Etsy shop on "vacation mode". This is the first time I've closed shop, but there are only so many hours in the day and all these boxes need to be out by Monday. It is a great feature. You can close your shop with the click of a button (sign in, click "My Etsy", then scroll down and click "Vacation Mode").
The photo above of our girls was taken at Portrait Innovations. They are all decked out in polka dots! Pretty busy this time of year, but the store has a good system in place. We had lunch around the corner after our portraits, then stopped in and picked up our photos less than an hour later!
If any of you are still open and accepting orders for Christmas, please post a comment below so our readers may find you.
I'll be posting Christmas crafts and featuring your businesses as often as I can over the holidays.
Have a great day, my crafty elf-friends!
