I feel like a turtle!

Hello everyone! I feel like I have had my head buried in my shell for weeks now. LOL, I guess I really have. We had a fantastic Christmas season at the store. Instead of stitching at work, I was busy restocking inventory, wrapping presents, and oh yeah, ringing up sales. I was so consumed but it was a great feeling. God has really blessed us this year. On Dec. 31, we will complete our first Jan-Dec in our new location. What a difference a year makes.
Needless to say, I have not stitched for quite some time. I am currently trying to get the ooomph to work on my scissor fob exchange (due 1-31), my sewing set stitch a long (as of the first I will officially be behind an assignment), and my Mirabilia RR rotation (not sure when this is due but I don't care because it was an entire rotation late to the person before me). Oh and a Christmas gift for a friend that I never had time to do (don't even know what to stitch). I work on little bitty bits at a time, you know I can't stress myself LOL.
The new Vera B ships from the company on January 2 so I am busy at work making sure my current inventory is correct, what a mess it is from Christmas. Then I have to load all of the bags that are coming into my inventory so that when they get here all I have to do is put in my counts and they can go out with no delay. New MN gets here I think in February. I already have a mini market, a trade show, an EGA regional seminar, a MN regional seminar and convention planned for trips next year.
It is shaping up to be a year of travel.
Ok, enough chatter. I hope everyone had a fantastic Merry Christmas.
Be safe and have a Happy New Year.

So glad you had a good Christmas and it sounds like you've been really busy. If you don't mind my asking, what store do you run? I hope you have a great New Year.

Wow, girl - you need a vacation. Retail in December is crazy. I admire you for making it through. Hopefully there will be some lovely stitching time soon.
All the best to you for a Happy New Year and a wonderful 2008.
