Today is Sunday, October 6th, 2013, and it’s a good day to shop for your family’s personalized ornaments for the upcoming holiday season! I’ve just been informed by the men in my family that there are 14 hours of televised professional football today. And while there are probably lots of fun things the non football viewing population can do other than shop, we at Calliope Designs notice that when the big football games come on TV the orders start coming in on our website. Maybe football means Fall and the holidays approaching. Maybe it’s just having some free time.
I hesitate to make a general statement that’s gender oriented – there are many women who love football and the games and parties! And there are many men who like to shop for personalized ornaments! Whoever sends in the orders is enjoying a nice relaxing session of online shopping, choosing just the perfect ornament for each family member, personalizing it with care, and getting absolutely the best selection available before the rush of the holiday season. All of our new products are entered and pictured.
If you’re not ready to shop for Christmas perhaps you’d enjoy a project of making some ornaments with your kids. Be sure and search our blog for How To Make Your Own Dough Ornaments at Home post. What a fun project, inexpensive materials, great results…. and not too messy in the kitchen. This means everyone’s having fun doing something they love on this Sunday afternoon.
It’s a drop dead gorgeous day in California and I plan to attend the Calabash Festival in Forestville CA. It’s a benefit for Face to Face, a food resource for HIV/AIDS patients in the county. Over 100 artists have created beautiful items from gourds of all shapes and sizes. Some are painted. Some are carved. Some are created into toys, others into beautiful decorative pieces. There is jewelry and there are hats. It’s amazing and fun and fanciful… and for a good cause. So I’ll miss the football games today.
