Some days are just more quiet than others. I don’t mind though. In fact, I really do like those time sometimes.

I spent the day yesterday working on my own holiday gifts for everyone, as I want to get them shipped out before too long. I know it is getting to be crunch time. I know many of you also make wonderful gifts that need to be shipped. In my years of sending my delicate woodwork to the magazine to be published, I have learned much about packaging items for shipping. Nothing is worse than spending hours on making a beautiful piece only to have it broken during shipping.

A short while back, I wrote an article with some tips on packaging and shipping your items safely. I think now is a good time to share it with you. You can find it on my “Free Stuff” page on my site, but I am also offering the direct link to it below:

Article on Packaging and Shipping

I hope it gives you some good tips so that when you are shipping your gifts this holiday season, they arrive safely and in tact.

I will continue today to work on the items that I need to send off. Hopefully they will all arrive in time.

Have a great day this Thursday. I hope you all have a lot of fun being creative!

LOL, Cozmo! I know! It is a rare time when I run out of things to say! Mark it on your calendar! :D I worked sanding all day yesterday and there was nothing interesting to say about it. (Good to know it was noticed!)

I hope you and your family also have a great Christmas! I am really getting into the holiday spirit!

Have a great day! Sheila
