Christmas Craft Show

Been busy getting ready for a Craft Show Sat. Dec. 3 at Normandy High School.  Stop by and say high. Here's a preview of some of the items I've been working on....

Here's a Santa I painted on an old water ski...



Some ornaments for the tree...




I fell in love with these felted wool pincushions when I saw them on the Martha Stewart show so I had to make some...


And this small cupcake pin cushion is so sweet...

I have also been making wreaths, decorated sleds, an old wagon decorated for Christmas and some wooden plaques for the wall. I hope to post more soon. Hope to see you there.

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Favor



With Thanksgiving only a few days away, I had to make a little something to give to my son's teachers. This is so cute and easy! It would be a great little gift for a teacher or bus driver and would look nice at your Thanksgiving table as a favor.
Simple supplies: orange slices, plastic wrap, brown floral tape and a leaf with wire stem.
Tear off a piece of plastic wrap and place 7 slices in the center. You'll need to hold them in your hand as you do this like a ball. Wrap the plastic up aroung the slices and twist at the top. Wrap brown floral tape around the plastic stem and twist at the top. Wrap leaf around stem and twist, Leave the end of the wire to wrap around a pencil to form curly q. That's it!
Add a tag if you like. Mine says : Give thanks to the Lord( Sorry for the blurry pic)

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! I thank the Lord for all his goodness. What are you Thankful for? And Who are you thanking?
