Working a Six-Day Week

 So, since this is the start of my six-day weeks, I don't have another day off for a week. I only have to work for four hours on Sunday, but it still means that I won't be able to spend the day raking leaves or playing LOTRO or whatever (reading fanfic, perhaps). However, even though we are putting handouts into every customer's bag, I probably will have a really easy day. I wanted to have a Constant Contact Email ready to go, but I think I'll actually aim for next week instead. I want to offer a serious discount on a single item to kick off our holiday season. We have to do something, the people just aren't coming through the door.

Working a six-day week. Aack!!!

There is a beaded bracelet using the Tila beads that I think would make a really nice display item, and possibly a good holiday gift. I will be doing a combination of reading on-screen and beading at the same time pretty darned soon, now. I have several people that I need to make gifts for, and I have two things in mine that might work. And I think I'll make my DH at least two pairs of pants. He really needs them and I already have the fabric for them. So it would be a Wednesday or two of my time, but wouldn't cost me any more money unless I need another spool of thread, so I could afford to do it and it would be a good gift. Of course, his birthday is the day after Christmas, and that double whammy is what always kills my budget. I don't have a lot (say next-to-none) discretionary income for this holiday season, so I have to be creative with my gifts this year.

White Light
White Light is Healing Light,

Thanks to all of you who sent white light for my friend Cindy yesterday. I haven't heard anything yet (probably won't for a few days), but as soon as I know, I'll let you know too.

Hi, 1L, yes, the Xmas season is frantic over here too, but with the crisis the shops are feeling the reduction in sales. I still have to begin buying the Xmas presents. So far I only have my dad's and my own (great start, I blew all my budget!)

Good luck with the 6-day week, and I hope you still find time for fanfic. Even more thanks for commenting at the lizards!

I also hope you hear good news from your friend soon.
I'll find time for fanfic - that's my sanity anchor. As for commenting on the Lizards, I adore that board - great people, really good eyes among that group. I just wish my own eyes were better honed, but reading their nits helps with my own beta skills.

As for Christmas budget...I have none. I really have to watch my pennies very carefully this year. It takes some of the fun away when I can't get things that I know people would absolutely love for their gifts.

You are very creative. Kev and I have had to agree no presents this year, but I honestly don't care. Writing is a present to me, and on more than one day of the year.
I have made holiday gifts for many, many years. Sometimes it is just easier to purchase gifts. This year I have no option, so easy or not, friends and relatives will get hand-done. I have to think carefully about what to do for who, but I'll get it nailed yet.
