This month really has got away with me, come to think of it – this whole year has! The countdown to Christmas started a good three weeks ago now for most people. For me, it starts on my birthday – exactly 12 weeks before. However, this week marks my official ‘I’m as excited as my five year old niece and her ten year old brother even though I’m twenty-six years old’ mood. I love Christmas more than I love the food that comes with it (and when your own mum and your mother in law make a crackin’ roast that’s A LOT!). I’m the annoying sibling that wakes up at 4am, the annoying colleague who decorates everyone in tinsel, plays Christmas songs and organises Secret Santa and festive bake offs and the annoying fiance who constantly mithers the other half to watch Christmas films.
Anyway, as the month has gone so fast I haven’t had time to really thank everyone for making the relaunch of Molly&Mavis such a success. This has been my biggest year for orders, new ideas and really getting in to the world of crafting and selling, so a huge huge thank you must go out to anyone who ordered something from me. Whether this was one sprout or a giant Australian order – thank you one million times over. You’ve made me a very happy lady (and for those who know me, it’s taken some time to feel that over the past 18 months).
Crafting helps me in so many ways. I have severe anxiety mixed with depression which can be a handful and earlier this year it was pretty bad. I didn’t want to even think about sewing a gingerbread man, so the change has been massive, as you can see, and lots of that has been thanks to you all. I’m feeling happy, in control and positive for 2017. The new year will bring baby shower, new baby and wedding items, so please keep watch.
Right now, I’m going to put this side of my life on holiday until around the 9th January 2017, but I will still be blogging over Christmas (sorry, you can’t get rid of me so easily!). Christmas items for 2017 will be available to pre-order from February and I plan to do some events next year, so I hope to see you there.
For now, wedding prep takes over as I get ready to become a ‘Mrs’ and grow up (apparently).
Merry Christmas all, and have a really great new year!
