Keep Calm and Jingle On!!

Wow...has it been crazy around here! I have three shows this weekend and a show on Tuesday! I'm not sure that was the smartest plan {unless I had started back in September, which I had not!!} So I'm pretty much stressing about the amount, the variety, the prices, the look, the packaging.....pretty much everything...that is my way though...it can be a little motivating too and its not to say...that I'm not excited because, I am! =:O)

Sometime though I just have to remind myself....it is what it is and the Keep Calm and Carry On signs fit perfectly to how I'm feeling. So I decided it was a perfect time to make a couple of Big Tic Tac packs with a variation of that....Fun?!
And speaking of Keep Calm and Carry On...today's history lesson...
Did you know that the Keep Calm and Carry On theme or saying on a poster was designed to uplift morale for the British Soldiers in WWII in case of a disaster?! Apparently, they, the posters, were never really distributed and it wasn't until 2000 when one of the posters was found in a bookstore that the saying and its poster started becoming popular! Interesting huh?!
Well I'm off again...time to see what I can do with some Ghirardelli squares...
Hope you're doing something fun and remember....
Keep Calm and Jingle On!!
