My first holiday season as a full-fledged adult was spent working the box office of a Branson, Missouri theater. Selling Christmas show tickets to grouchy tourists for 11 hours a day, six days a week while listening to terrible holiday music kind of had a way of killing the magic of it all for me, not to mention the fact that I no longer had the month-long 'winter break' I'd enjoyed as a college student.
I've made my peace with Christmas, but I only want it around like... three weeks out of the year. Tops. I tried to keep all Christmas all the time kind of people in mind this year and added a few holiday decor items to my Etsy shop.
I apologize for the somewhat crappy photos, but it's really hard to photograph metallic canvas! I've got some in gold and silver, so check 'em out if you're so inclined. Meanwhile, I'll be over here refusing to acknowledge Christmas-y things 'til December 1st. :)
