Cyber Monday Madness!

Shop Handmade This Christmas!

I'm participating in the Cyber Monday Madness. Starting at Midnight tonight, everything on my website will be 30% off! The sale will go through the end of the month. There are a lot of items that are one-of-a-kind and they will go first come first get! I will work with local people on getting things to town for a pick up and refund shipping if you so wish.

Handmade products have so much more meaning than "made in china"! Think of supporting your local artists this holiday season!

Hard at work!

So this is what my work table looks like right now: 

Ready for paint. Tis the busy season right?

My Gift!

Okay seriously. Who doesn't LOVE getting a present in the mail!? And when you know it's coming from a crafty person, well that just amps up the excitement doesn't it! 

So with great anticipation I awaited the mailman. He brought me a box yesterday and I dove right in! I did have enough patience to take a photo before I opened it, isn't the wrapping wonderful?

 Hand stamped tag anyone? What wonderful details!!

Look at this wonderful heart garland! I absolutely LOVE it! I can't wait to decorate with it. Thank you so so much Hanneke!

The Handmade'ns Show

 Soo I feel terrible! It took me weeks to get this done! But I finally have posted some photos from this year's show. I also brought my video camera along for the set up.

I do want to apologize for the bad video. I wasn't a very good camera woman! 
Here are a couple of shots of the show before we opened:

A little history on the Handmade'ns show. It started in 1976. There is usually around 12 women in the group. There are no original members still in, but there are a couple that have been in for quite a while! The show is more of a boutique, and it's held once a year, usually the first Sunday in November. The Handmade'ns pride themselves in offering quality hand made products. There is quite a range, from welding, painting, woodwork, sewing and crochet!

Ebay Ebay!

Have you checked out my ebay listings lately? I have tons of stuff listed and more will be added! Oh and there are $1 auctions, so you should go there now and check them out!

So here I am! Things have been crazy busy lately. I thought after Handmade'ns I would be able to relax a little bit. That has yet to happen! I will be posting photos of the show along with a video that I shot soon. It was a wonderful show, we had so much merchandise this year, it was great!

Anyway, on to this post. I was fortunate enough to come by a large collection of books this summer. They are old law books from the 40's. So this lead me to look into what I could do with all of these books.

Reading them is out of the question! Of course when looking for ideas, you go to Pinterest! Here are some photos I found there:


What do YOU make out of old books?
