Happy New Year!

As this year winds down, Jess and I would like to take the time to wish each of you a very Happy New Year.  We hope your Christmas was wonderful and we hope 2014 brings you nothing but blessings!

We made the decision this fall to close our Etsy shop from December 1 to January 2 so that we could finish up all of the orders that had already been placed, and get them shipped out. We also wanted to have time with our families after the craziness of Craft Season. It was the perfect decision for us, and I feel confident that we will continue that practice next year.

Because of this break I (Valerie) must admit that I had the most relaxing Christmas season I've had in years!  Without the stress of having to worry about orders, I was able to get my own shopping done, wrap the gifts, clean the house and even bake cookies!  Honestly, since we started this business, I don't think I'd done that at all.

While we feel bad for anyone who wanted to place an order after December 1 but couldn't, we made sure to make the announcement regarding the closure early in November to give everyone plenty of warning.  Since we will do this next Christmas, and we could do it again if we ever take vacations, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out on any important announcements.  That's one of the places where we post new products, discounts and other information, so following along will help you stay current on all of the latest and greatest Poverty Barn goodness.

Speaking of new products, Jess and I are both brainstorming about some really fun new projects, which we will roll out in the coming year. For my racing friends, I will be attending my first Chili Bowl in mid-January, and several of our racing signs will be in various auctions there throughout the week. A new one will make its debut there as well.  Be sure to check with the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and the Kick-It Cup Charity Auction events if you plan to be in Tulsa.

Here are a few photos of items I made as Christmas gifts and some that were ordered by customers.  Visit our Facebook page, where I will be adding even more.

Thank you again to everyone who has supported us over the past few years.  We look forward to working with you again in 2014.
