EART TEAM BLOG RING : Preparing for holiday seasons

This week EART TEAM blog ring talks about how far ahead we prepare for holidays such as Halloween, Xmas etc.
Personally I just make items for 3 big holidays: Fall (Halloween/thanksgiving), Christmas/New Year and Easter
Based on my experiences the latest time I should have my things ready for Christmas is the middle/end of October as I started to have Xmas orders around the end of October. Things for Easter should be ready in February and for Halloween in middle of August.

Sadly, I am not always be able to do what I plan :-). Trying to think about it positively, I would say, that way I always have my things ready for those seasons the next year - I made my things almost one year ahead :-). I am also glad that most off my stuff are One-Of-A-Kind and pretty classic there is no fear for them to be "de-mode' "- out of fashion. Also I love to create things right in the middle of the festive season, when I feel in my heart that true holiday spirit - but it'll be too late for sale :-)

This year, I am getting better however. Xmas already appears in my Etsy shop. Check it out if you have the mood. I haven't listed so many as I am still catching on custom order, but I did list my favorites there and a good thing is I offered some really good deals on those items!
