Holiday Preview

Happy to say I survived the craft fair last weekend.  It was a great day.  I sold a bunch of items and met some lovely people.  Now that it's over, I'm back to business adding Christmas items to my Etsy.
(Xmas stickers)
At first I felt guilty listing Christmas items before Halloween, but given the way Target, Marshall's, Home Goods, etc. look, I figure if they can do it, so can I!
(Jenga/Scrabble ornament)
These Jenga/Scrabble ornaments were inspired by both my friend Susan from Homeroad and Pinterest.  I used vintage Scrabble pieces and a grungy bell for some of them.  Others just use the letters and Jenga wood block.
(Merry Xmas ornament)
For this batch, I added some mini frames and French book paper.  I hand-stamped the merry using random rubber stamps.
(Petite photo hanger)
Even these mini photo hangers got a Christmas touch!
We also have a new addition to our family.  He's been keeping us very busy.  Meet Oliver "Ollie" Milo B.  He's a rescue kitty and is just a bundle of energy.  Note: the beer carton is Mr. B's; not Ollie's.  =)
