Christmas time


I can hardly believe Christmas is almost here and I am close to being ready. Usually I am still working on the tree on Christmas eve but it is up now and beautiful. I tried a new mantel display this year with my Mark Robert's Santa faeries and it looks great. I love these Santa dolls and add more to my collection each year. I am about to run out of room.

My art work is almost at a standstill but 2 of my friends that I don't get to see very often are setting up play days for the week I have off. I am excited about that. Still too cold to felt but I can always bring bags of stuff and my embellisher. Can make lots of new wall pieces. Everyone loves them but I have to figure a way to come down in my price. Could also make some bodies for wall art fairies. What a joy it will be to just play for no reason.

I have no shows signed up for spring yet and after the first of the year, I will start sending out applications. Still only local shows this year but I am seriously looking at one in Big Hole Wy. That would be a great show but we would have to drive to get the tent and displays out there so it really isn't practical. I can dream big though.

Hope all of you have wonderful holidays with lots of laughter, fun and a few naps thrown in!

I like the layout for your new piece, lovely colors....(it is also nice to see that someone else has a craft space as "organic=cluttered" as my own :)

I think pricing is one of the most difficult things to figure out....felting just takes a long time and the supplies are not exactly cheap when you are making a large piece .

Happy holidays

Your wool looks like sherbert! Love the colors! As far as the show in WY, I say go for it- life is too short not to do the things we want... :) Merry Christmas!
