Hi Blog Friends,
Hope yawl had a nice weekend~ stayed warm and safe. Here in the valley we received about 5” of the white stuff! Quite a few limbs from our trees came down, but nothing disastrous~ thank God. We have a couple of very mature trees next to the house, so whenever the heavy snow falls, or ice ~ I hold my breath waiting for the big crash. Lol.
Since it was so yucky out~ I’m not a snow person~ I worked on finishing up some items and thought I’d share.
All these items where made using patterns from TFC Folk Art.
Santa Stump Dolls with gingerbread boy. These guys are about 15” tall and nicely plump. I love the gingerbread boy in the sack, so I made up some to sell separate. They’d even make nice ornies for the tree.
Lg Santa Dolls. I just love how this guy turned out. I made up the tree in his belt using a heavy gauge wire wrapped with brown floral tape, and mini ming garland for the branches. I also added an old key to his belt so he is able to open all the doors he visits on Christmas eve.
Snowman Cookie Cutter Ornie. This ornie is so cute! They were a bit tedious for me to make, but turned out so nice. I made the brooms using small sticks and bought a cinnamon broom from DG and cut the twigs from the large broom to size and wrapped wire around to attach to the stick. They would make cool witch brooms too. I’ll have to stock up on some for next year!
I have so many piles of crafts waiting for my attention, it’s not funny. You see, I have this bad habit of starting one thing, then going on to another. I get bored easy, so I constantly move from one thing to another and then you get piles in all stages waiting to be finished. I know I’m not the only one who does this, right?
I have three orders I need to get done this week, then maybe I’ll finish up one of the piles patiently waiting for me. Then again maybe I’ll just make another pile~smile. Who knows what the week will bring.
Well friends, have a great week. Stay safe and warm whatever the weather is in your neck of the woods.
Autumn Blessings, Jean
