Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010

Happy New Year one and All . . .

Christmas has come and gone - I hope that it was PERFECT for you. It certainly was for me! But I can honestly tell you, I am so glad 2009 is almost over. I can't wait to close that chapter and open fresh and new for 2010.
This has been an incredible year for me with my business. I had set some lofty goals for myself and I'm so excited to say that I blew past those goals with flying colors.
I was thinking that I would take some time off - well I have had a little downtime due to some minor surgery on Monday, 12/28. I've rested a lot and have let my family take care of me. But I am so anxious to get out to my studio and get going on all new designs for 2010.
So help me clear out my ETSY Shops!!! I am having a RED TAG SALE on both websites. For gorgeous jewels head over to: www.tippystockton.etsy.com . For pillows, boxes, glass and odds and ends go to www.tippystextilesnstuff.etsy.com.
I can't wait for you to see my new designs - they will start rolling into the shops in a week or so. Until then, have a wonderful New Years Eve!!!
May blessings of love and prosperity come your way in the NEW YEAR! See you all soon.

Tippy's Textiles in Atlanta???

Well, not really. Here's the scoop. Twas the day before Thanksgiving, while I was scurrying around getting packages shipped off, glittering boxes, wirewrapping bracelets, peeling potatoes, preparing pumpkin pies, chopping onions, etc., etc., etc., I was contacted by Amy from ETSY in NYC. She was calling to let me know that the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper had selected my "Joyeux Noel" Pillow to be featured in their Holiday Gift Guides Section of the newspaper. What did you say? You want WHAT? Who, me, you want my pillow? Of all the thousands, perhaps millions of items listed on ETSY, and you want my pillow??? Well, okay then! So I scrambled to get a good quality photo off to Amy, and promptly got back to my pies.

I didn't hear back from Amy after the long weekend and I kept checking on-line to see if I could find anything about my pillow. Nothing :( I received a note from a fellow ETSYian in Atlanta letting me know she saw my pillow on the Front Page of the paper. Wahoo!!! She said she would send me a copy of the paper.

So, it's back to the real world. I'm continuing to create beautiful jewelry, crochet like a mad woman, and package and mail out my shipments. It's not too late to shop. Delivery deadlines start to get in the way in a couple of weeks. Today I'm headed to Haley's Cottage in Mill Creek for their Holiday Open House. I'll be there from 3:00-8:00pm. Stop in, say hello! Here's the address: 15021 Main Street, #E, Mill Creek, WA 98012 (just across the street from LA Fitness)

Next Friday, December 11 is my 4th Annual Holiday Boutique here at my home. Here's the address: 948 Cedar Street, Edmonds, Wa 98020 5:00-9:00pm. Share an evening with friends, sip on some wine and have a nosh or two. Can't wait to see you all there!
Take some time and enjoy all the blessings of this Holiday Season. Treasure the time with your family and friends; create new memories! Have a lovely weekend!
