This weekend was my last craft show of the year and it was a real blessing. I made new friends and sales were good. God is good... all the time. Now I can concentrate on my Christmas Open House Craft Show on Sat. Dec. 10 from 10-6, and Sun. Dec. 11 from 1-6. This is something I do on this same weekend every year. It will be my 10th year.
The house gets spruced up and filled up with crafts from old and new artisan friends of mine. We feed everyone who comes through the door, and offer a show that is relaxed and full of last minute gifts for teachers, co-workers, friends, and family. I worked, yesterday on getting the quilts displayed and have already put up 8 or 9 trees throughout the house. I hope you will take time to visit us for the fun this Christmas season. We would love to have you!
I am now in Christmas mode all the way.. There is so much to do before the open house. Here are some of the decorations that are going up today.
This tree is in the corner of the living room. There are handmade rustic ornaments made from painted muslin and homespun fabric. There is a little prairie doll underneath the tree busily embroidering a gift for her friend.
The hall tree that it sits on is one that belonged to my mother, and Larry refinished it for me. The hats belonged to both our fathers.
I've been listening to Christmas music for a month now and today am posting some of the decor in my house. I am busily getting ready for the Open House on Dec.10 & 11. So here goes.....
This tree is in the kitchen. It's filled with gingerbread people that I cut and hand paint from 1/4" birch plywood, popcorn garland strung by hand, & hand crocheted cupcake ornaments.
This is a tree on top of the fridge (hope the dust doesn't show up) that my friend Cathy S. put together. It is nested in an old sifter with cinnamon ornaments and homespun fabrics. She covered it in glass glitter, and I just love it!
More to come, but I must pick up my son for a dental appointment. Prayers please. He has to have wisdom teeth extracted today.
Just wanted to post some of my new bags on the blog.
These bags are made from upholstery fabric in assorted colors. They are 8"x8" and are a perfect size for short shopping trips or long trips to the mall. Easily carried on the shoulder or across the body for hands free shopping. They are just big enough to carry essentials (wallet, keys, cell phone and credit cards) and small enough to be out of your way while shopping. I am asking $12.00 for these and shipping is free. Just message me to order.
I have new listings at Zibbet.com. New bitty bags and a handcrafted wooden rocking horse that was made by my husband. This little guy would make the perfect gift for the child in your life. He will last a lifetime and for generations to come. Check out these listings and have a happy and blessed day!
