Happy weekend!

This weekend is big!

And it is one those, I look forward to the most throughout the year - a Holiday Weekend...

So, what I will be doing this weekend is - being entertained; having spiced drinks, aromatic wine, tea and treats, steamed veggies and gravy; opening and passing gifts, phoning my overseas family; wearing wool socks and sleeping in...

I love this time of year for so many reasons, and have over time developed a few tested tricks, that keep Holidays fresh and fun for me, every year:

I finish my big shows before December, so I have no huge last minute projects on top of everything else - it feels so great, to know, big set-ups and tear-downs are over;

I decorate my studio in a different way each year, but with just basics, such a the tree and some lights, so there is not much to put away after it is all over;

I don't wait till last minute to gift shop, so I can enjoy it;

I set aside the work I have been really looking forward to doing, because it makes me forget how exhausted I can be from all the shows, events and run-around, - and reminds me exactly, what I love about my biz;

I go to see a non-Holiday film, so I don't get overloaded;

I do not entertain at home, rather meet friends in a restaurant I really like, which reduces work immensely;

...and I start cocktail hour early....

What's everyone doing; and how do you survive the Holiday rush?...

Happy Weekend, everyone, and - Happy Holidays!
