Halloween's over and here come the holidays.
Since I'm not doing my BIG craft show this year, I'm actually enjoying a little quiet time before the holiday rush. Drama Queen has her first real job working the Santa Express train in town and The Perfectionist is back doing the Christmas shows for his school encore group this year. I know it's going to get busy and this is just the lull before the storm, but I'm enjoying it after a crazy October.
Without family nor our big group of friends being near by, Thanksgiving has become a quiet affair here. It makes me sad, because Thanksgiving has always been a time for family and friends to get together with lots of laughter, games, and noise. But I have a lot to be grateful for this year and will enjoy the time with my family before we all get lost in the holiday shuffle.
Since I'm sure there are many families out there who are suffering from small incomes in this darn economy, I'm kicking off the holiday with a Thanksgiving shopping guide from the small businesses of Etsy. I hope you'll start your shopping with small businesses this year and support the families of America.
