Things have been busy around here, both in reality in my mind. I am thinking of all the lovely things I could make in time for the holidays. However, if you are on my holiday gift recipient list, you might want to stop reading the blog for now. Hah! I’m probably going to wait to post anything major till after the holidays (assuming these ideas become realities), but you’ve been forewarned. It’s been snowing a lot, and to me snow= Christmas. I already bought a small sparkly pink tree. So, according to my boss and the snow, it will be Christmas till March. The combination of snow and sun is so bright that I actually have a headache. I don’t mind though, because it’s much better than depressing gray weather. Yay for the sun in winter. Here’s a picture I took on the walk to work this morning.
This weekend I continued to make more stuff for my local craft fair. I think I may be going a little overboard, but it’s always better to have too much stuff than not enough, right? I’ve wired at least 20 button necklaces– here are some of my favorites:
I also made some quick journals that I’m either selling or gifting. I haven’t quite decided. The felt flowers are from American Crafts (I love them!).
And I worked on a fun placecard project for Thanksgiving, which I’ll post later this week. For now, enjoy this weekend vignette: me sewing labels into hats between scrabble turns. They finally came from namemaker, and I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed. For the cost (about $70 for 100), they aren’t super high quality (they weren’t even cut!), and I also had no idea they’d turn out so long. They tell you they’ll make the length as long as your type mandates, but I guess I didn’t have a good idea of the font size (my last labels were the same height and about half as long). Needless to say, once I run out of these I’ll be taking my business elsewhere. But hey, at least I am winning this scrabble game –for now!
