Weekend Wind-Down #178

CRAFT 3051

Even though it’s been a little over a month now since we closed up the MINI GALLERY, it seems like we’ve been busier than ever…and we didn’t even participate in any holiday craft shows this season either. Art shows, commissions, special orders and ETSY (Missy recently opened a third “wholesale-only” ETSY shop in addition to her two regular ones) have us burning the candle from both ends during our evenings and weekends. Missy spent the evening a couple days back sewing up a bunch of her super-cute TISSUE PALS for a special Christmas order…

Whenever Missy goes into “FACTORY MODE”, she takes over the entire living room floor and fires up the NETFLIX. Lately, we’ve had B-GRADE CHRISTMAS MOVIES playing in the background as we worked. This night it was “CALL ME CLAUS”, starring Whoopi Goldberg:

It has been very cloudy and rainy these days, just as in Katie’s photos. It makes me feel the same way she does in her post. I don’t mind the rain, but this is the most rain we have seen in a while here in Athens.
