Time for a Craft Fair

How fun, I am in glue heaven. E6000 to be exact. I have been getting ready for an upcoming show and for this I think I will make button pendants and add pretty ribbons to each. I will also decorate composition books with fun papers and embellish them. Scrabble necklaces and magnets and lots-o-paper. From greeting cards to tags. I'm trying to think of Valentine's Day themed gifts ahead of time. It's sure fun to see all this pink lying around too. Better get back to crafting.....

Pretty Petite Posies

Another talented friend makes these adorable posies that you can also wear or use on a special item. While Jeanne's great wool felted pins have pin backs hand sewn on them, Stephanie's "Petite Posies" will use either a clip or floral pin for attaching. Steph also adds a paper tag in case you want to give it to a special person. Once she puts them on Etsy I will provide a link. She will create a set of 6 to be used as adorable napkin rings also.

Talented Friends

Lots of my friends have been getting really creative lately. Here is an adorable hand needle felted pin that Jeanne created. She makes these with organically dyed alpaca and/or sheep's wooI. The colors are so pretty and she creates really fun shapes. I just love the cute beads on top for embellishment also. I am hoping she will soon open and Etsy store so she can share her talent with everyone. Maybe in the future I'll be able to give you a link to her shop...

Sweet Sunday

What an amazing California day, felt like summer and gave me a jump start on crafting for upcoming shows. And Thanks to good friends with amazing leftovers. Could this day have gotten any better? Better than the 90% off at the local craft store? What a day!

I am picture crazy this morning and want to share more images....These first images are of items I will be selling early this year, on Etsy and on Ebay.

Here are a few images from around my house. I find when I do eat an apple a day, I'm much happier...

These fabulous items can be found on my talented friends website. Her name is Katie Roser and I'm always calling her "Martha Stewart Florida". She also writes childrens books in addition to sewing, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, photography and whatever else she decides to do. She is amazing. Whenever she comes up with something new I immediately try and purchase it from her because I expect her to be completely famous. And did I mention she is one of the nicest souls around?

Lastly, here are some images of one of my favorite cities that I took when I was there for the National Stationery Show last year. I can envision living in the upper west side. I have never seen such amazing architectural details like I do in New York. I heart NY.

Happiest of New Years!!

This is going to be the best year ever! Or at least whatever YOU want to make of it!!

I thought it was really interesting how so many of my friends used October thru the beginning of December to clean out all the clutter in their homes and offices. I thought we were naturally inclined to do "Spring Cleaning" in April/May but I was wrong. It made me feel good to know that I was "with it" and in sync with my friends. Now that 2008 is behind us we can focus on making all those dreams come true. Here's to following your heart, finding your bliss and creating something everyday...even if it's just making one person smile.
January Hugs to all!

In an attempt to be truly organized, this hangs in my office and makes me feel creative whenever I look at it. I got it from the Ikea kitchen department. Happy Organizing too!!
