Guilty. I'm going to take time to tell you how busy I am ....
I opened up my shop on Etsy last September. One of my challenges has been anticipating and working far enough ahead to be ready for the major events or holidays. I was caught a little short last Christmas, although I was able to post some pieces. The best sellers were the few sets of little vintage blocks I offered. So ... my mother didn't raise a dumb kid. I have been busy for the past two months creating bigger and better Christmas blocks and other holiday items. The new blocks are 2.5 inches square compared to 1.25 square last year:
Here's what my studio looks like the past two months:
Here's a sampling of what is posted so far in my shop.

Photos of the Shiny Brite ornaments I saved from my family's collection, ornaments that graced our Christmas trees every year ever since I can remember. The ornaments show the wear of all those years, and had I known then that these would be highly collectible today, I might have tried to take better care of them!
I haven't listed any yet, but I'm also working on these card/photo holders. I have only one set done so far:
