Break out the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation movie (my all-time favorite) as I am in the Christmas mood. Please don't hate me...I know it is way too early for Christmas and no I am not decorating for Santa Claus to show up anytime soon. I am working on holiday gifts, containers ideas and more for Johnny Lolita's.
I was supposed to start this in July...so I am a little late. A popular holiday seller for us is our coffee burlap sack stockings. It is a great way to stuff a bag of coffee, some hot chocolate on a stick and yes...grab a bottle of wine and instant hostess gift. The stockings are always a limited supply based on coffee roasting production and how many of the coffee bags are burlap verses the GrainPro SuperGrain bag that extends the flavor and life of a green coffee bean. However, I always seem to have a supply of them to create my stockings for sale.
For people who know me...I L-O-V-E Christmas! I always have and pretty sure I always will. I'm the wierdo that loves the season to last as long as possible. I enjoy creating hand made gifts for family and friends. I really love thinking of clever ways to decorate packages and wrap for my customers too. I enjoy working with themes or color schemes for a season and making each holiday season new and different.
Sure it's been tough thinking about cold mornings wearing thick sweaters and boots creating gifts of cheer when its 112 degrees outside. But on a cloudy day like today...it seemed like a good time to start.
I'm in the planning stages of new items to share during the Fall/Holiday Season and honestly...I can't wait. I know Johnny is always excited too during this time (said Johnny NEVER) because he gets to be my helper when I'm in production mode and trying to create and put it all together. I guess thats why I can't seemed to find him right now. Must be tangled up in some holiday ribbon wishing this would end.
Tis the season to be Merry...
