The past two months have been SO BUSY with preparations for the Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philly. And now that it’s only 3 days away (I can’t believe it!), I’m so extremely excited for it. I have no idea what to expect which makes me nervous and excited and happy all at the same time.
Wow, this Christmas season has been quite the whirlwind! I can’t believe Christmas is next weekend. And, surprisingly, this year I’ve been doing very well with keeping on top of everything. In previous years I’ve been ambitious when it comes to being half (or mostly) handmade and it hasn’t always worked out. But this year it’s going great! I still can’t share the things I’ve been working on though. ::sad face:: As soon as Christmas day passes though, I’ll divulge all!
I’ve been so busy lately with all kinds of craftiness. And I’m just dying to share but I can’t. Most of it is Christmas related and I don’t know which members of my family are reading. And when. So in an effort to keep things secret and not spoil anything for them, I’m going to have to wait to share details and photos until after Christmas. It seems so far away but it’ll be here before you and I know it. I can’t believe this weekend is already the second weekend of December. Craziness!
There is one project I finished that I can share though. Steve and I have some felted wool stockings from Target (one has a Santa on it, which is mine, and the other has a deer, which is Steve’s). But now that our family has expanded, I wanted us to have a set of matching family stockings. I’ve been entirely obsessed with plaid flannel these days. So, naturally, I made plaid flannel stockings.
Steve’s is the stocking in the back, mine is in the middle, and Caleb’s is on top. I said that the project is finished but there is one more thing I’d like to do: distinguish whose stocking is whose. I just haven’t figured out how I want to do that yet. I initially thought about embroidering either a monogram or our full names on them but decided against it. I’m toying around with some other ideas so we’ll see what I come up with in the coming week. I wanna get these babies up and hangin’!
I took an unscheduled break from my blog. For a number of reasons.
…that includes one of these three fabrics.
