Holiday Deals + December Events + Musings on the Season

Black Friday is right around the corner and we are going to have some SERIOUSLY good deals on mooreaseal.com. 

But tomorrow I plan on laying low at my house for Thanksgiving, and trying to savor the little time I get with family and friends during the holidays. It's a majorly busy season for me, and owning a retail shop and online store means this is my busiest month of the year where I need to be working the hardest! I'll be working every week and most weekends this month, doing rad things like a book signing for my book The 52 Lists Project at Urban Craft Uprising here in Seattle, I'll be selling goods from my shop and signing books at Renegade Craft Fair in Seattle, and I'll be selling goods from my shop at the Made in the PNW pop up shop event at Makers Space here in Seattle. All that fun stuff on top of extra everyday work in the busiest shopping season of the year plus some massive secret projects I'm working on.

I'm very very very grateful for the life I get to live and the wild exciting things that happen with my job! But at my heart, I'm a homebody who loves spending quiet quality time with the ones I love just as much as I love coming up with crazy projects to tackle. I'm hoping I can use this holiday season as time to establish how I want my holidays to look for years to come, learning to juggle the work with the peaceful and holiday season spirit. To me, the holidays really are the most wonderful time of the year. I love the events, the food, the warm cozy clothes and decorating your home for the season, I love the holiday music (I used to me a semi-professional classical singer in high school so I have some major nostalgia for Madrigal music and classical Christmas choral music.) I just want to spend everyday soaking up the holiday cheer in my personal life. And I'll want that forever. But I'll also need to do major major work during the holidays for most of my life as my business grows. So finding the balance is a big priority for me this coming month.

I am so proud of my staff of 12 people who work SO hard every single day, and especially during the holidays. And I hope that you too feel the love from us as we package up each order and ship it out to you in time for the holidays. Behind each website, behind each brand, each label are people who devote their life to their work and do it with heart. And we want our hearts to be focused and full of love as we work through December. All of the folks on my team will get the big holidays off to spend with the people they love because duh, thats important! And on workdays, they'll be kicking ass providing amazing customer service to our customers in store and online. 

So all that being said, shop small this Holidays season! Take advantage of the discounts that small businesses offer because small businesses work really dang hard to offer the discounts that they can afford to give. And spread some cheer to those retail workers to are busting their butts working to make their shops' holiday season the best it can be! It's a lot of physical work, but even more emotional work having a great attitude and providing great care and concern for each and every customer.

Here are some peeks at the discounts and deals we are offering throughout this coming week and weekend!

BLACK FRIDAY: Up to 70% off Everything Sitewide! FRIDAY-SUNDAY

Thank you all for following my journey. When I started my blog in college, I would have never have imagined that I would ACTUALLY reach the point I am at now. Dreams really have come true for me and I'm working hard to maintain and expand those dreams forever. Your support of my shop makes rad things happen and damn I love you for it.
