Does the cold ever end?

I think most of us here in this frozen northland are beginning to wonder if we’ll ever see spring.  I know, too much talk of the weather, but I am from Minnesota after all!  The snowbirds were feasting at the bird feeder all day today, so I suppose that means more snow is on the way.

As far as the business goes, we sure had a good Valentine’s Day.  It was very busy.  I’ve put a few pictures here just that show a some of my favorite new creations from Valentine’s Day.

Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe that we are already pretty nearly to the end of another year.  When I looked at this blog, I realized that I haven’t posted anything since June.  It’s a bit embarrassing.  I would make a resolution to write more often, but the problem with that is that I don’t keep resolutions and so have given up making them in the first place.  (This is just an effort on my part to keep from jinxing myself!) 

I have some goals for January/February.  I hope to start an email list for my gift basket customers and friends.  I don’t want to do a monthly newsletter but definitely would like to send out information when we find some cool new products or gift basket ideas.

February is the five-year anniversary of Gift Basket Delights. If any readers have a nifty idea for me on how to celebrate, please let me know!

I can hardly believe it, but we have a pair of bluebirds in our yard.  I don’t know where the nest is, but they are so pretty.  Of course, as soon as I have the camera in hand to take a picture, off they fly.  They just have a knack for knowing when someone’s just about ready to snap that picture.  Anyway, we have a bluebird on our logo because we love bluebirds and so for me it ‘s very cool to have a pair nesting close by.

Venus and Jupiter

I know it’s definitely nothing to do with gift baskets, but maybe its a Minnesota topic — I just know that I’m so amazed that I can look at the sky at night and see both Jupiter and Venus.  And they’re so bright that I can see them without even searching.

Blogging Again?

I believe this is my third or possibly even fourth attempt at a blog — perhaps this one will stick!
