I think my interview with Boutique went great! I heard it the other day on my ipod. The 12 days of Christmas newsletters I sent out were well received and I had my last show this past weekend.

I am unofficially on vacation! Wahoo! I am going to finish all my Christmas shopping and hopefully catch up on some sleep! I have some packages to get out tomorrow to customers and then I'll work on last minute Christmas shopping, although I don't want to hit the mall with all the local shootings going on there.

Today I had my interview with Daria from Boutique Cafe as one of the 12 boutique owners in her 12 Days of Christmas interviews. It was a lot of fun. I was a little nervous at first, but once I got talking I couldn't stop... sound familiar? Anyway, it was fun to chat with Daria even after the interview. I feel like I know her so well from listening to her podcast for so long. She is as sweet as she sounds on-line.

I wonder how I will sound on the interview...
Wow! It's been awhile since I posted. Thanksgiving came and went in a flurry of activity, along with my daughter's 4th birthday. Then the week of "what was I thinking?" where I had booked 4 shows back to back. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I survived that when my marketing husband thought of the great idea of putting together the "12 days of Christmas markdown"! In haste, I got the first 4 days of Christmas markdowns sent out late Nov 30 where an item for a boy and a girl will be marked 50% off (or more in some cases) for that day. Today, I just sent off the email with days 5 - 8. I am excited about it and I am glad my customers are too!

I think the Christmas feeling is slowly coming to life in our household. We have the Christmas Tree up as well as all the outside lights. Beaujolais wine is flowing as well as the eggnog. I am over halfway completed with my shopping, all the hard ones are left.
