Peppermint and Gingerbread

It was a peppermint and gingerbread Christmas again this year.  I find myself putting less and less decorations out every year as you just have to put them all away in a few weeks, right?  The peppermint towel hanging on my stove is from Cracker Barrel.  I'm into more peppermint decor now than gingerbread.  The red and white is so cheerful.

My daughter and I played around with making peppermint candy beads with polymer clay a few days ago.  Need a lot more practice.  As she said, "trial and error".

Happy New Year to all!

Little Stitchery Pictures

I made up some little stitchery pictures for last minute gifts for a few of my crafty friends.  I found the frames at ACMoore.  Now I have all kinds of ideas swirling in my head for spring!

Wishing everyone a warm, cozy blessed Christmas Eve.

Last Craft Show for 2011

A few pictures of my "creations" before the show started.  I made the black and white polka dot displays by covering cork boards with fabric.  Again, most of my pincushions sold from the mice to the cupcakes.  And I sold out of my hand painted snowman pendants and snowman earrings.  I was pleased with my sales and after a little break will be making items for spring.

I still have to finish up some Christmas shopping and looking forward to our daughter's arrival Thursday.  We have a busy time planned with family.  Can't believe yet another year is almost over.

Wishing a happy, healthy Christmas and New Year to all.
