Can you believe we are at the end of 2022 already?
If you are anything like me you have already been daydreaming of projects you want to dig into in the upcoming year. I have been cooking up ideas left, right and center. However, during my 41 rotations around the sun I have learned that when I start getting amped up with ideas like I am that it is the exact time when I should pump the brakes and just marinate in these thoughts for a while, before acting.
Many of you aren’t aware of the struggles my little family has endured this year. No joke, It’s been a real mind-fu** most of which I have kept pretty quiet and close to my chest. The reason I haven’t been as vocal about what’s been going on is due to the fact that it isn’t happening to me, although I am directly affected by it. It isn’t my story to tell and I don’t know if I ever will, but I would be remiss to not say that it has been life-altering and hard, full stop.
So with this I am letting you know, dear reader, that for the first time since Fuzzywhatknots opened shop in January 2020, I will be taking a break. From December 24, 2022 through January 8, 2023. Two full weeks. The website will be open and you may place orders but they will not be processed until I return on January 9, 2023.
So what do I have planned during my little break? I plan to take a few days and do nothing, no social media, no email, just full on decompression. Celebrate the Christmas festivities and ring in the New Year with my family and just be. Then I will get to work on some admin, end of year stuff. Due to the aforementioned emotional/physical upheavals this year, there is quite a bit of yarn that has never been listed, so I want to get everything listed. I also want to clean up my office and get rid of things that aren’t serving my business or myself and then take some time to really dig into these ideas I have for Fuzzywhatknots going forward into 2023. So. Many. Ideas.
I want to take this moment to express my gratitude to each and everyone of you who have supported my business in any way this year. From placing orders, testing patterns for me, sharing my content on social media, or just commenting and interacting with me, these things have kept me afloat and there are just not enough ways to say thank you. It’s been a wild journey this year and I am so honored that you have chosen to follow along with me. I look forward now with hope that maybe things won’t be perfect in 2023 but at least a little better for my family and excited for what will come for Fuzzywhatknots.
I wish you Happy Holidays and I will see you all in the New Year!
