I'm going crazy!
























I made these bottles, and have sold quite a few in my shop. I'm making more for the holidays...



















This is a shop pic of some of the items I have sold like hot cakes. The handmade vintage purses out of vintage textiles are adorable, but pricey! The seam binding ribbon is so pretty and I use alot of it myself for different crafty projects! The herbal dryer sachets smell so good and are great for your laundry!


















I found these vintage flowers @ the Sparks flea market. I bought some and will use them for the projects I'm making for Christmas......more pics to follow!

Well, I've done it again.....I've committed myself to two shows during the holiday season, my husband is having his hip replace (injured in Army), and I still have a shop to run! I'm going crazy...nut-case!! I know there are so many of you out there doing the same thing. Why...why do we do it? I always say I'm going to make the holidays more peaceful this year. I'm going to recognize my limits....ha ha ha! I'm going to enjoy making things, and actually enjoy decorating my home (well I might try to enjoy that...). I guess I'm just a glutton for pressure and hard work. Plus, I love the energy in the air @ a good show this time of year. The extrovert in me thrives on it. I'll let you know about the shows later......off to work......

I usually over do the holidays too. Heck, if you sell stuff, then that is your time to sell!! But this year, after Silver Bella, I am done for the year! I am looking forward to a stress free Christmas.

Good luck with yours!

Everything looks great! I know what you mean - I ALWAYS seem to over-commit! And, because I'm a musician, everyone want help with Christmas performances...it's crazy! But the music, and the hand-made gifts, and the cooking, and the feeling in the air can't be beat. Hey, thanks for visiting my blog, :) I've linked ya!
