Free Etsy Banners

Well the holiday season is in full swing around here! I have been just slammed with orders from my Jeweled Elegace boutique (thank you everyone!!). I've been to the post office every day for weeks now. Every. Single. Day. Which normally is a quick stop, but my post office is now "watching the bottom line" and they have only ONE clerk on duty for the holiday season. Let's go over that equation ... ONE clerk + multiple hundreds of people with multiple packages = Disneyland length lines which queue up an hour before the post office even opens. Yikes!!

My son has also been ill and between the two things, I am ready for a Starbucks Latte and some of their yummy seasonal Gingerbread loaf! Maybe on my way to the post office tomorrow? hee..hee!

In the holiday spirit, I want to share with you something very nice. This: The Free Etsy Something Daily Blog. This site is courtesy of the talented MissesBird on Etsy and I when I first heard about it, I was instantly in love! Free incredibly beautiful graphics for your Etsy shop, your blog, whatever you'd like. I liked them so much that I redesigned my Etsy banner using some of her lovely graphics. Take a look!:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!!

I'm glad your shop has been so busy! Everyone is figuring out what I already knew - you're very talented!! Hope your son is feeling better!

Good for you. The prices of everything is effecting everything else and we will all have to live with the new stuff. What a pain when your son is sick. Darn! I missed the Banner thing and I loved it. Sigh! Merry Christmas!

I'm so glad to hear that you are making lots of money! LOL Our post office is the same way. I always say I am going to take a book and then forget it. I just eavesdrop on everyone's cell phone conversations instead.
Have a wonderful Christmas! I hope you get your latte and that your son is feeling better soon!

You won! Can you email me your address, please? Thanks. :)

I hope your son is feeling better soon. I think its great that you are so blessed with orders! I understand the whole post office thing, I had to wait over an hour today to get some things in the mail. I have one more trip there on Saturday and then I can relax for the rest of the holiday. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas.

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Luckily I can schedule my postal needs online and my mailman picks everything up. My tiny town post office is busy in the middle of July...I don't even want to go close right now!
