Seems I have gotten myself into quite a PICKLE!!!


 I know...I know...the Pickle Tree is closed, right?


Well, it is trying to be anyway:)


I certainly have not taken any new orders.


But I am not joking, since closing on November 30th for the holidays....


Yesterday afternoon was the first day that I did not "work" a full day probably since July.


and people, I do not mean like M-F kinda days...


I mean like 7 days a week!


Sure...I have had SOME time off.
Some days I have somewhere to be on the weekends. On those days I am literally starting the next embroidery thread stop in between towel drying and blow drying my hair going in between the bathroom and the shop fighting a battle of wills....
with myself....
finish this ONE thing...no get ready to go so you won't be late.....


But Saturday...
oh sweet Saturday....
I FINALLY finished the LAST official order and tied it up with a bow ( literally cause that is how I roll) packed it and had it ready fro shipping on Monday.

Ahhhhh...

What to do then? Well get busy on my own personal Christmas gifts that needed personalization of course. So over the course of Saturday afternoon and into Sunday I wrapped up most all of that. Well, at least enough that I felt FREEEEEEE!!!!!!


I cannot tell you what good having that one little afternoon to myself, (well not so much to myself but I definitely got to relax with my husband and son), did for my soul.
I felt like a new woman by the end of the day.
So much so, that the wrapping gifts till WAAAAAY past my bedtime last night did not feel so bad!


I am feeling so good that I am realizing that opening the shop up at the beginning of the year is NOT going to allow myself to soak up enough of the goodness that I am craving.


I must admit that I will miss it a bit, but I will be back.


I am just thinking that it will be closer to February than January.


I think yesterday spoiled me!


So...from the Pickle Tree...
Have  yourself a merry little christmas...the pickle is signing out till February!!! ( at least)
