PSA: Holiday Shopping

Just a friendly reminder to you all while we are in the midst of  the Holiday season and that is to please, please, please be kind to the other people who are also trying to get their shopping done and those who are working in the shops.

I know it can be a stressful time, with long lines and crowded areas but being rude to others doesn't make anything any better. I know from experience that people who work in retail try to make the whole process go smoothly and it is really discouraging when you interact with ungrateful customers during the busiest season of the year.

So please keep that in mind when you are finishing up your shopping.
Happy Holidays!

Project/Life Check In: December 15th, 2016

Hey, guys! I hope everyone is doing well and that all oh your Christmas making is going great. I just wanted to check in with you guys, because I won't be recording this week and I'm not sure when I'll be able to. 

We are in the middle of packing/moving still and we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I also start my new job on Monday! I'm hoping that everything goes smoothly.

For my crafting, I've only been working on my Dragon's Egg Socks since the last episode. 


I'm decreasing for the toe on the second sock right now, and I'm hoping to get it finished very soon.

Have a great weekend!
Sam<3
