Ready For My Long Winter's Nap!

Uh muh guh!  I am so ready for my nonexistent long winter's nap!  After all, it's almost the Night Before Christmas.

Since November 1st and as of last night, I've sewn and shipped 174 orders (shower caps, aprons, sleep bonnets, headbands, and sleep masks).  Woo hoo!

Since I launched Retro Revival, my sales have increased by nearly 50% year over year.  Lots of promotional posts on my Facebook page, higher Google rankings, and word of mouth have all had a huge impact on my sales.  I am extremely grateful!

And tired.

Did I already mention that?  I may have to employ some elves next Christmas season.

Congratulations on a wonderful season! All the best in the New Year too!!!
I feel the same way...tired...I could use a long winter's nap myself!

You Go Girl! I am so glad you have had a great year! You look so cute in your little sleep hat!

Is that a yo yo quilt? If it is, I would love to see a better picture. Did you make it?

Hee-hee! You're so cute! congrats on increasing sales! If I could sew, I'd ask to be one of your elves. :)

When I was a young mother, I used to long to hibernate! I thought it was so unfair that mother bears could just sleep and nurse through the new born phase! ♥

Oh Wow!
How exciting.
I know I'm not ready for a Christmas like that in my shop yet. I've only just opened up.
I don't mind the vintage sales...but anything hand made or what not...just not ready. I'm hoping to be a bit more prepared next year!
You sales and news is encouraging.
Love your cap. Get some rest before the holiday!
