CountDown to Germany

Only 10 days until I get to go home to Germany once again. I am so happy. After not being able to visit for 7 years I am able to go a second time within a calendar year. We are sending our boy to live with his aunt in Germany for two months. Why? To learn the language and find his German roots. Since He is only a young teenager I get to take him to my sister's house. What a lucky duck I am. Two weeks in Germany. It's not very long when you have a huge family and so many friends to visit.


But before I can leave I have this long list of things to do. I have decided not to close my Etsyshop while I am gone. When I closed shop last year my business took a big hit. Views went down to zero.  I think I lost a lot of customers because of it. So now I want to try something new: Put husband in charge of my shipping. Please keep your fingers crossed that all goes well and that if someone buys a doll it gets to where it needs to go. We don't want the mermaid doll to end up in the hands of the aspiring ballerina. Hmmm.

To make it very easy, I wrapped up each doll and put it in a box with thank-you-note and all. Each box is marked with what doll is in it. I also gathered up all the doll clothes listed in my shop and put them in a single container. Please forgive me if there should be a delay or mix-up of some sort.

There shouldn't be a problem though, right? If only I could get him to take the course "101 Etsy for Husbands".
What do you think? Will it work?

Of course, best would be if I could sell all the dolls and doll clothes before I leave. So If you want something please go ahead and order yours, now! ;)

What a wonderful opportunity for your son to live in Germany for a while.

My ancestors are from Germany and someday I would like to visit to see the places where they were born and lived.

Enjoy your trip to Germany!

Enjoy your trip! I'm about to head home from Europe. . . always a great experience for the kids to connect with their family.

I trust all will go well with the shop, your hubby will do fine :-)

Yes, I hope for the best. I hear they actually have nice weather in Germany right now. Not snowy and cold like Colorado. I am ready for some real spring weather...
Thanks for your lovely comments, my friends!
