Hope everyone has an enjoyable day!

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Well I just finished the largest craft show in my area! It is a three day and the money goes to help charities in my area which I think is great. I actually did pretty well although there was a lot of lookers. I did take orders on some items as I didn't have enough of them. So I'm excited that people wanted to order extras! The most poplar item I had was candy canes and the jar lights. So overall a show I will try again. Some of the patterns I used are Bits of Wool for the standing snowman, Sassaffras Hill for the snowman nodder, the book and jar lights by Dee Duncan.
