Stamping Workshop!

The Holiday Craft Lounge was this past weekend & it was great. It was a craft show like no other I have been to. Here people weren't just selling their wares, but many also had a project to do while you were there or a fun take home kit. Projects ranged from making paper wreaths, sock monkeys, making a paper ornament, assembling your own enamel earrings (I am wearing a pair right now) and other goodies. I had a stamp your own ornament/bracelet station. I wasn't sure how it would turn out going into it, but it was a blast! People really seemed to have fun creating their own unique gift.

After I got home on Saturday I had emails from people saying what a nice time they had.....I also received an interesting email from Laura at Anthology (the hosts of the show) asking if I would come to their shop & host a little workshop any time in the near future.....so I will be at Anthology 218 State Street Madison WI this Saturday from 12-3 for a stamp your own ornament workshop!

Come down & make your own piece of hand stamped goodness!

Hope to see you there.

Sigma Show Tomorrow!

So tomorrow I will be at the Sigma Holiday House Show in Fond du Lac.

The show runs from 9-3 and is at the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds. There will be over 60 vendors there, live music, delish bakery & lunch and will also have a silent auction!

This will be my last show in the area before Christmas (the rest are all in Madison), so stop down & see the new goodies. I'll have hats, headbands, stylin' onesies, hand stamped bracelets & pendants as well as my new ornaments.

My Helpers

I have been busy this week trying to get ready for the Sigma House Show next week. Good thing I have had such good helpers they took some time off while playing dress up & helped me put flowers on my hats the other night - it was interesting.

We also have adopted a new doggy recently too. His name is Tyson & he is a Japanese Chin. Here is a not so great picture of him. Next time I'll have to try & get one while he's sleeping so he doesn't rush the camera.

Here is what I have been up to

I have been a busy little bee lately! I have a new style of pendant - here is a picture. It was hard for me to get a good pic, but they are really neat! They are now at Dainty Daisies & my shows.

I also made cool & comfy new winter hats. They are a cloche style, they remind me of the 40's. They are made of fleece so they are warm, and fit about ages 7-adult. Those are also at Dainty Daisies & my shows.

And a friend is opening a shop in Madison called the Glitter Workshop. It is located at 6138 Mineral Point Road in the Homestead Shoppes. The grand opening in Saturday Nov 13th. I have sent her goodies including these - hand stamped ornaments! I really love they way they turned out. They are about 2" diameter & are nice & light so they won't pull down the branches of your tree.

Well, we need to have breakfast & got some more sewing done. My next show is in 2 weeks. YIKES!

Trick or Treat

We had a lovely time trick-or-treating last night.....The girls had a blast & were SO excited when I told them that they can put their costumes into their dress-up clothes.

Syd went to bed in her PJ's & when I woke up she had her costume on.....too cute....
