Am I too late for Christmas?!……

Christmas Stained Glass, Robin, Xmas Trees, Holly, Mistletoe, Stars
Some of my more Christmassy glass designs

As an individual, I’m not very good at early planning for Christmas.  Unfortunately this is also true of my ‘business head’.  Until I moved to Wales and got in touch with my ‘creative side’ I played the whole 9-5 game.  As a self-employed Artisan (as I now am)  I really need to start thinking about Christmas at the beginning of October (latest), whereas in my ‘past life’ I refused to consider it until after my birthday (which is 19th November and honestly this post is not a hint for birthday wishes…..)

Anyway, this year I have gotten a little better, I started thinking about it on 8th November (only a month late right?).  Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your view-point), we actually have a winter sun holiday booked for a week in December pre-Christmas, so my “business window of opportunity” has shrunk at the other end too.  I only made that realisation yesterday as I updated my Etsy shop with Christmas stock.

Quirky Christmas Tree Decorations, Suncatchers

Needless to say I’m a rubbish business manager but am an excellent free-spirit and hedonist!!!

I do however have a small window of time in which to offer anyone interested a commissioned stained glass trinket or an item from my collection

I’m currently up in the middle of the night cutting out robins, blue tits and holly.  Ok, to be honest as its so blatantly obvious, I’m blogging about cutting out robins, blue tits and holly, but as soon as I stop typing, I promise you I’ll be right back at it…

Me in Blackpool when I really should have been home cutting glass and things in preparation for Christmas!!

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!
