Seasonal Snapshot

Here's my upcoming year in a really abbreviated overview. 

1)  Do all that business stuff that makes a business run.  Website design, taxes, sign up for craft shows.  Glam jobs.
2)  Keep blending and packaging teas and spices.
3)  Re-socialize myself with all those good friends and family I have less time for the rest of the year
1)  Seed and grow annuals in greenhouse starting in March
2)  Make so many poplar bark baskets.  So, so, so many.
3)  Work on packaging for upcoming season.

1)  Plant out annual transplants to fields.
2)  Grow things and make baskets until the bark won't slip anymore.
3)  Dry, process, and package teas and spices.

1)  Craft shows!
2)  Farmers Market & Holiday Market!
3)  Keep processing and packaging teas and spices.
4)  Distribute all the lovely things I've made all year to all the lovely people at markets and craft shows who want to take my wares home or give them as gifts.  This is the piece that makes the whole thing keep ticking.
