When should we start getting ready for winter holidays? Just about now is a good time. For artists it's perfect time because all those items take time to make and creating them in advance is always helpful. Plus the retail stores are going to be looking for items for this holiday season in July, so why not have them out there and get some wholesale orders?
For buyers it's good time to get those gifts. There are going to be many sales now, so why not take advantage of it? It's getting to that time of year when you can find all the Christmas in July sales on etsy.
And yes, this is one of the paintings I'm working on for this holiday season.
