WOW It's October! On one hand this year seems to have dragged on forever and on the other I feel as though I've missed most of it while caring for Jim. Thankfully he is doing much better and doesn't need my constant attention so I've been enjoying
Most of the holiday bazaars I did last year were badly organized and with little advertising very poorly attended. As a result my sales were less then stellar and I do have quite a few leftovers. This year I have been invited to a larger, well organized and always well advertised CRAFT FAIR. I am truly excited to be in the company of true artisans and do hope for much better sales.
These Christmas Planners are some of last years leftovers as so few sold. I am hopeful they will sell this year.
Although time consuming these are quite easy to make out of a file folder and DP. Since it would probably take longer for you to read how these were made I invite you to view this fun, speeded up video. No jibber jabber just festive music. I don’t own a Crop-A-Dile, instead I’ve used Velcro closers stitched under the bows.
These simple Christmas Planners have sold well in the past so why not make more. :) They are altered mini composition books, covered with Christmas snippets, bits of ribbon and punched snowflakes. I can’t remember where I found the label as I’ve had it in my files for some time.
I thought I would share this slide show with you. It shows some of the fires here in Eastern WA. These photos were taken quite a bit north of us but the fires extend along the Cascade range south to our area. Thankfully we can not see the flames from our home and unlike the homes shown here we are in no danger. We are enjoying another beautifully clear day as the breezes continue to blow the smoke out of our area. Sadly the air quality in the area these photos were taken remains Hazordous.
ETS: Although the breezes are blowing the smoke out of our area and we are in no danger the fires are still burning here as they are in the slide show.
Have a Fabulous Day!
