I've Got Some Spring in My Step

Happy May!  I certainly feel like I've got some spring in my step lately.

Over the past week, it feels like spring has sprung here in Southern Maine!  I've seen quite a few robins, the dandelions and daffodils have popped up, our pretty tree in the backyard has grown buds and the weather seems to be sticking around 50°-60° during the day.  Eliot and I are excited to spend more time outdoors and that's made us both work that much harder indoors on both the house and on our businesses.

Happily Ever Hatter orders have picked up immensely.  To put it into perspective, half of our total 2021 revenue so far has been from the month of April.  I'm so thankful and relieved.  I'm not sure if it's because people are starting to travel again, or if a lot of people are going to Disney for spring break, or if it's from Disneyland opening again... honestly, it's probably a combination.  And I'm so overwhelmed with gratitude.  After this really long year and the pandemic, I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Snowblade Creations has also been busy this past month.  As soon as we mail out a bunch of packages, we have another group of orders come in!  It's keeping our printers running and Eliot and me very busy.  The past few days, we have had so many multi product orders come in that I've run out of heart emojis to track them!  (I use the bright colored red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple heart emojis to keep track of orders with multiples on our print list.)  I've started to use the rainbow, star and other bright emojis to help keep track of everything.  But again, Eliot and I are so thankful.  We've also been riding the momentum and are working on samples of new desk products that should be joining our shop later this month!

Eliot and I have also made a big effort to focus our attention on our house.  The house always seems to be the last thing we work on.  The businesses have to come first since that's my job, but I've been trying to make time during the day to work on a few projects here and there.  Right now, those projects have been all over the house and I don't have much to show for it as it's been a lot of organizing.  But we are working towards having a few rooms mostly finished soon!  

Hopefully, May will also be a productive month for us!  I'm trying to get on here to post more often than I did in April.  But if I'm not, just know that it's because we're getting things done!  I'm sure that I'll have lots to share over the next few months!  °o°
