Scrapbook and More Focus: For this challenge, we were to make a calendar, to do list, booklet or journal for a friend to use in 2014. I make this 5 x7 calendar for my BFF every year. I put the pages in a pretty handmade box, and each month she slides the calendar page into a lucite desk frame and she uses it on her desk at work. I make another one for myself that I slide into a magnetic picture frame and keep it on the fridge.

Last Craft Show Items

I saw these stamps and couldn't stand not having them. Oh how I've missed my Prisma colored pencils! I don't make all the same card for Christmas, at most I may make 4 or 5 of something. I'm making some of these for my own Christmas Cards and made a set to sell at the craft show.

Gift Boxes All Dolled Up

These Tag a Bag Gift Boxes are food safe so I used my Great Grandma's Date Nut Loaf recipe and pored the batter into mini muffin pans. I just couldn't sell them empty:-) I'll be ready to go set up at the craft show bright and early tomorrow morning. My friend Rachael volunteered to help me. Isn't that the sweetest thing?

More Craft Show Creations

I'm so happy with the whole printing and binding that Stampin' Up! offers with the My Digital Studio program. I made a cookbook for my son. I wanted to keep illustrations and embellishmets to a minimum cause he is a man! Below are some pictures of it and some more thing I made for the craft show next weekend.

Craft Show Creations

I'm ready for the craft show! I have just about everything packed and ready to go. I need to figure out some way to display the wreaths I made. There are only 8 of them, but I need to hang them somewhere.  That moss is so messy when you are working with it, I did all the decorating out in the shop. I took a few pictures while I was working on them, not the best background but you can get an idea of what they look like.
 I sure hope they sell. It took a long time to cut the grapevine and form them into wreaths, then gathering pinecones, but I enjoyed being outside and the dogs were thrilled to have me with them. They laid right by me most of the time, nudging me forto pet them. The wreaths are not real elaborate...natural, just using things that I found. I know the wreaths with that shiny metallic ribbon are very popular right now. People might not like this homespun version. Oh well we'll see.
