One month before Thanksgiving... this is what Altered Whimseys Studios looks like, embossing powder, stamps, glue sticks, cut outs, flowers, stamps.... I have decided, however, to not open my Etsy store this year and just focus on family gifts and the preparations for Christmas. Last year was kind of a miss, I had been sick all Fall season and through the better part of Winter. The house didn't even get decorated. This year will be different, and I am so excited about the upcoming holidays with my families... both East and West coast.
