Time sure does fly when you're busy! My mom is a great seamstress - she didn't pass that on to me. I'm afraid of a sewing machine! My dad loves to work with wood & photography. So, I think I did get a little creativity from my parents - I learned to crochet!
My mom participates in a small craft show every year & she invited me to send some stuff to her. Well, since I'm a procrastinator, I don't have much to send. But I did crochet up 6 scarves and some of these angels. She's doing another one in a couple weeks, so if my things sell, I can send a couple more. Maybe I'll start my own on-line shop! Ok, try not to get carried away. I'll be happy if I can just make a little Christmas money. :)
During the 1st two weekends in Nov. I'll be participating in my craft/vendor shows, but displaying my Home & Garden Party products instead. I'm praying that I can get this business going consistently, so I can put a little more to our finances.
Last year, I participated in a gingerbread house contest at nearby shopping center called Peddler's Village. It has upscale shops & restaraunts, etc. Fun place to window shop! Anyways, they offer nice cash prizes for the winners of the contest. Check them out here! Mine didn't win, but I was so happy with the result. If I get inspiration, I get excited, and I was so excited about this house. (It's not the exact picture. Mine is still on that same roll
But, this year, I couldn't find anything I liked, so I thought I probably wouldn't do one. I did a last ditch effort of looking around the internet & found inspiration here. I found a couple other pics of the Old Lady in a Shoe, and will probably make mine a combination of their ideas. Now, I'm so excited, and ideas are rolling around in my head like crazy! So, the first week of Nov. will be dedicated to this project.
Ready or not, here we go!
