I'm back from "vacation" and have a lot of pictures to share with you. So sit back, grab a cup of tea, and read on.
The craft fair started up rather quickly. We weren't ready. It was a busy year so we created what we could and made promises that in 2015 we would spend more time crafting items to sell.
I didn't take many of pictures of my products. However, here's one of my pocket book calendars. I went through my stash of leftover Ningyogami dolls, popped them on pocket book calenders with matching Washi pens.
Cut his face out and added it on with hot glue. (Sorry, I didn't take a picture of my whole outfit). Added straight leg pants and black boots and I was done! I did win 2nd place . . . but there were only two participants!! LOL!! Hey, I know it's cute and its NOT ugly at all . . . but I've discovered . . . I just can't do UGLY!! :o)
Now comes the last minute gift wrapping!! You know my penchant for matching handmade tags with wrapping paper? Well, this year I went with a Santa Claus theme:
Red paper bags decorated to look like Santa jackets and a white pull up. (I did this last year but with Snowmen).
I'm gonna end here for now. I have a lot to catch up but the butter mochi is almost done baking in the oven and I'm gonna spend some time with DH watching a movie.
Tea swaps continue to be held once a month. We have a wonderful brunch of gals participating. It's fun and easy to participate. Drop me a line if you are interested in joining us!!
Classes start up again soon with an omiyage set for January's class. I hope to bring on this blog more crafting projects with instructions on creating your own this year . . . Hopefully I will have more time :o)
Happy New Year! I hope 2015 brings you all the best and inspires you to do even more!!
