Day after tomorrow, Phylliss and I will be heading off for Stone Mountain Park and the last Country Living Fair of the year. You can still get advance tickets online through tomorrow, 10/21.  That option saves you both time and money!

I have been out in Santa’s workshop pretty much non-stop trying to get things made to take with me.  I apologize for not being very present on the blog.  This is the time of year when I just never seem to be able to stretch myself enough to cover all the bases. It will most likely be like this until the middle of December.  When I get back from Atlanta, I have 6 commissions to make in between the shows so I am feeling a bit stressed over that.  But very, very happy to have the opportunity to make special wreaths for people!

Also, pretty soon I will be able to tell you some exciting stuff that I have had to keep to myself so please stay tuned.

Before I sign off for the evening, I do want to share with you two new wreaths and a bunch of the “Mini Topes” that I have been making.

Let me know what you think of them, ok?

Pink Joy

Pink Joy

This is Pink Joy.  This is for the person who loves the hot pinks, golds, greens, and other snazzy colors for Christmas.  It has some really cool stuff on it.  I think this one hung on a mirror would be fabulous.

Mid-Century Memories

Mid-Century Memories

Mid-Century Memories is just that.  With a wonderful Santa candy container as the centerpiece, this baby has all the stuff we boomers grew up with at our Christmases.  That’s even an aluminum tree branch poking out of the top.  Way too much fun!

And next is a little gallery of some of the “Mini Topes” that I have made for this fall.  There are some really fun ones in this bunch – and some pretty ones, too.  Please click on the pictures to enlarge them.

And, finally, I leave you with an elegant wall pocket to hang as part of your Christmas decorating.IMG_2658 - Version 2

Have a wonderful night everyone!  I hope to see you in Atlanta!

In Case You Are Wondering…

I’ve been really, really, busy out in the workshop making new stuff.  Here is a peek at 2 new wreaths.

Just a sneak peek at a project I’m working on at the moment.  Things are humming along in the workshop.
