The Christmas holidays are almost upon us. With the buzz of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the whiff of turkeys roasting in the ovens, and lots of happy cheer, we take stock and are, thankful.
Things have slowed down a fair bit on the storefront. We are truly thankful that you haven’t forgotten us. Life at home with two kids doesn’t mean a bed of roses (hooboy) or that time is aplenty to spend sipping tea from pretty tea sets. Far from it.
So here we are, taking stock of the last couple of weeks (not the year coz it will make for some epic post which, I don’t have the time for)…
First up, the shop! We have been busy packing orders, with little touches of whimsy. We have delved into our crazy washi stash and enjoyed decorating the packages before we ship. We hope they bring a smile to you when you receive them!
We have spent quiet moments enjoying the little things. The girly pink (why else would Sparkle Thots’ be so PINK?), the teabreaks, baked treats and vintage wares, and lots and lots of sunshine.
And family celebrations. Food and lovely company. (And even more sunshine!)
The kids are out on term break, returning back to school and to a whole new level come January. What that effectively translates to is epic long days filled with playdates and activities to rein in the boundless energy. By nightfall, we are all exhausted.
And so the cycle continues.
** by the way, do remember to get your orders in by the weekend to ensure shipping in time for Christmas. And by that, we do mean PAID orders. We will only prep and ship on receipt of payment.
