Denim Tree

Tried my hand at quilling, well sort of, like my friend Tracey of Quilly Nilly. Difference... I used denim from an old pair of jeans. Turned out pretty cool.

Have a "DOXIE" Christmas

This is my most recent custom order through my Etsy site. The woman ordering absolutely adores the dachshunds she adopted from a local animal rescue organization. She wanted a special photo box with pictures of her "babies" that she could set out and admire each year at Christmas time.


I mailed the box to her today. I bet she'll LOVE it!

Hard at Play

Here's one of the recent photo boxes I made for a customer. It was neat to do one with pictures in it. I usually sell them empty and let the customer add their own photos.

Nature Walk

The weather took a short turn for the good last week with highs in the 60s, so I took a nice stroll along our local river trail...of course, with my camera. Here's a few of the photos I captured while out that day. What a refreshing day!

Dressed in Black

I never dreamed that a picture of a black cat against a black background would turn out, but these show I was wrong. I was packing for one of my crafts shows and had my black table drape out on the table. Izzy immediately claimed it as hers. :)

Santa Candy Dish

Made this cute candy dish from paper bags! The bags actually had the image of Santa on their sides. I cut them out, glued them to cardstock, added the hats, and viola...a Santa candy dish. Only requirement is that you have to use wrapped candy, and, oh yes, you can't put the dish in the dishwasher! :)

Crafts Fair Season

It's that time of the year again...the time for selling my items at local crafts fairs. I love this time of the year. The days are getting colder, thoughts of the holidays start to surface, and ladies at come in wearing Thanksgiving and Christmas sweatshirts. You know that the holidays are almost here!

This year I've got booths at five different crafts shows -- The most I've ever had. The first three have been very slow, which is a little discouraging. Several of us crafters have discussed the possible reasons for this, and all include the basic idea that with the economy down people just do not have the extra disposable income to spend. No matter what the reason, I'm hoping sales will pick up as the holidays draw nearer.
Here are a couple of pictures of my booth at the most recent show I attended.

Majestic Montana!

My husband and I just returned from a much-needed vacation to visit his sister's family in Whitefish. We had a blast. The mountains, especially Glacier Nat'l Park, were phenomenal. There's just no picture that can show the magnitude of its grandeur. It's something you have to see in person to understand. Needless to say, I'm going to create one heck of a scrapbook with more than 800 photos we took while there.
