Catching up – November 20-December 5th

“What have we not been up to?” might be the best question. It was a sprint to get all the Christmas decorations up by Friday, November 20th. It took a full week of shopping, painting and creating to finish three major projects.

  1. The Hall of Trees – Tree
  2. Decorations for the front of the store
  3. Interior decorations.

The store front: all decked out for the Christmas selling season. The decorations around the vestibule were Megan’s brain child. We don’t have a canopy to mark our entrance so pedestrians don’t see our store front. We’re testing this ‘decor’ theory to see if it attracts greater foot traffic

The “Hall of Trees” Tree. A true labor of love.

Total man hours: 36

Total machine hours: 20

Number of people on the project: 4

It’s the best representation of our skills set & jewelry making abilities.

Then came a much needed ‘creativity’ break. I binged on BBC shows, Jordan played video games & Megan continued creating Christmas decorations for her home.

The Sturm Family celebrated Thanksgiving with a turkey, both the meaty kind & a veggie kind. We went for a walk. I hunted for rocks. Rocks for my flower beds ;). Yep, I just can’t get enough.
