It's been like Santa's Workshop here at North Country Rustics! Every order has been something new and exciting...and I am positively giddy when I think about how many Christmas trees will have a gift from my workshop underneath their decorated branches! No wonder Santa loves his job so much!
And I have to say that I love mine! There are days with disappointments and worry but they are greatly outnumbered by days of unexpected joy! Like all of the support I got yesterday about the controversy surrounding my "Happy Holly Days" greeting. I was so worried that I had offended EVERY ONE of my customers, fans, and friends with my silly little greeting. I was so relieved to find out that I hadn't offended everyone and that some of my loyal peeps were glad to hear the season's greetings!
Our motto here at North Country Rustics is: Inspired by Nature, Wildlife and Country Living. "Happy Holly Days" was my way of wishing everyone a little piece of nature in whatever their celebrations may be. I know most people don't get to spend as much time as I do in Nature but without it's beauty our celebrations would be all tinsel and very little heart.
Speaking of nature...I was stomping around the woods yesterday finding the perfect piece of birch for one of these holiday gifts. And it was a beautiful day with temps in the upper 60's! It hardly felt like December at all! How can I get into the spirit if there isn't any snow? Especially when only a week ago North Country Rustics had this for a view...
