I thought I would share some items from my craft boutique. I have spent lots of waking hours on things to sell here. It is over, and I did have a great time doing it. The weather was cold and cloudy outside. It was not as successful as I had hoped for, but we did get to see some ladies that we have not seen for a while. And the atmosphere was so very Christmasy
So here is the first sampling of what I made for the boutique. I am working on getting lots of this leftover stuff in my Etsy shop.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
