It's time to has been a very long and busy year for much to do, not enough time and yet as I look back I probably wouldn't change very much.............well.......except for maybe eliminating some of the stresses that I encountered. Time to relax........uh.........yeah right........but I have taken a couple of days off of the radar to simply chill out.

The painted crab shell business has far exceeded my expectations and the Christmas shopping rush is finally over. I could have sold double what I did if I had more time to paint more. As it was, the month of December was a marathon for me and has left me exhausted both physically and mentally. My desire to please the customers and give them what they want matter how ridiculous.......kept me awake many nights painting away on the shells. Two weeks in a row, I had stayed awake with no sleep, working on shells from Friday mornings all the way through until the following Sunday nights. Entire weekends with no sleep.......not a wise thing to do for anyone and I hopefully will be able to make some adjustments and not need to do that again next year. All in all, I hope that all of my customers were satisfied and appreciated my efforts. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have contributed to some happiness this Christmas.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank those who have come back again and again to purchase shells from me. It truly has been a pleasure to serve them. I am grateful not only for those customers but that many of them have become friends. I enjoy chatting with them when they come to the flea market. I have learned much along the way as well.

As for me......I am tired........but.........a new day has begun and there is more work to do. Therefore, I am back at it again..........shells are on my dining room paints and brushes are ready for action......and I have some special orders waiting for my attention. I also have many shells to replace that were sold out. It's a nice problem to have.

All the while my mind is somewhere else..........on the water.......the beach.....the you see in the picture at the top of this blog entry. My favorite place to be..........and with Supernurse.......who I wouldn't want to be anywhere without. 

So stay tuned folks!
There is more to come.......

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
