One week out
Today marks seven days to Christmas Eve! You’re more than likely winding down in your shop. Inventory has become much smaller. Boxes and envelopes and more boxes have been packed with care and precision. Personal touches have been added to each parcel. These were then carefully shipped to new homes with love. All of this being a reminder to those who purchased your items that it was handmade by a small business owner somewhere out in this great big world!
It’s almost here guys. We’re officially two weeks out from Christmas day and I’m never really sure how it comes so dang fast. Between content creation, social media posts, graphic design and staying on top of all things Marmalead related, I’m just trying to stay in touch with this beautiful season and what it holds. The temptation to let the season happen to me instead of really soaking it all in is definitely a thing. Days seem full to overflowing with so much business that there are times I just wish it was over. But that is NOT what I want my holiday season to be like at all.
November thirteenth was World Kindness Day. Of all the strange and weird “national whatever” days that I keep hearing about, this one is worth not only celebrating but remembering. It’s something we’re super passionate about around here at Marmalead. In a world that can often seem unkind and divided, we need to remember just how important kindness is. Even though this post isn’t being delivered on November thirteenth, shouldn’t every day be an opportunity to remember to be extra kind? So this is our reminder to ourselves and you:)
