In a panic....

So there I was......happily snoozing away this morning.....

When BAM!! All the sudden I woke up and my first thought was.....

CHRISTMAS IS EXACTLY 6 MONTHS FROM TODAY!!

UGH!!

That sent me into a tailspin panic!

You know the kind when all the sudden get real warm and you can't sit still and you need to blog about it to at least SHARE the panic just a little with your loyal followers? (You're welcome by the way...if I've sent you into a panic of your own I can't apologize...I needed some company while I stress....I can be a stinker like that...)

Oh the work that needs to be done in these next few.....very few months!!I can't help but ask....

Where does the time go?????

Seriously.

We've got 4 Sunday at the Marketplace Events left for the season....

A Boll Weevil Festival

A Bella Rustica Barn Sale in Nashville

A Holiday Show in Greensboro

Harvest Tyme at the Marketplace

Candle Light Night

Christmas Tyme at the Marketplace

plus...

the Shop will be totally transformed for the holidays!

And there is a wedding in there too~ Aug. 20th!

I have no idea how it will all get done....




But it does.

With a boatload of prayers.

And my absolute love for what I do.

Your support.

And help from Mr.OTM....{thank goodness for Mr. OTM!}






So now that I've calmed it down a bit and have created mass hysteria for a few of you~ I feel better! LOL!

So today I am just gonna head to the shop.......

Gear up for today's fantastic customers.....

(and maybe ....just maybe.....open the dreaded Christmas closet and just take a peek at what lies ahead.)

Then again...maybe not.

Yep.....I think not.

Ya, thanks Beth!!! Shop owners never get to live in the present... at least not for long! I love the planning for the "what's next"... just sometime in the doing I run out of time & energy! Would love you to bottle and sell your energy!
