I Know its August and here in the UK it's really hot so Christmas is not the first thing on my mind but when do you start getting ready for Christmas Creations in your shop ?

I know what you mean! It's hot here too! I wasn't going to start for a while, but since a lot of people have been talking about the holiday rush I started last week. I stocked up on some supplies and am making a few things. I don't want to be crazy busy making things and shipping!

We are supposed to be getting ready NOW! Yikes. I'm trying my best.
Check out your tags , make sure your pics are nice and crisp etc.
Have a nice banner, just get it all done so you can be ready for November 1st!
I'm trying to do all these things! Hopefully I'll get my first sale :-)
Good luck! You can do it!

I feel like I'm working on Christmas stuff year round! But I'm really focusing on it this month so the holiday season is only slightly more stressful then normal!
