That’s it, I’m done! No more shows for me! Last week was hard, with 4 days of selling added on top of teaching my last week of classes. And, I probably won’t do those 2 shows again – but it was worth it this year, as my little business is “in the black” for this year! WooHoo! Now it’s on to finishing that pesky grading and making lots of Christmas presents! Next Saturday is the last day to get priority mail boxes sent out in time for Christmas delivery, so I’ve got my deadline!

And, becasue you can’t have a blog entry without pictures, below are some outtakes from this years Chrstmas card photo shoot:xmas-1

I’ve got one more holiday show to do, this weekend at the local YMCA.

1st, I had to make more Grab n’ Gos – my last one from the previous batch was lonely!

"Baubles & Birds: no. 5-10"

Then, I finally had time to crank out a bunch of lower price point items: different sized shopping bags. I bought the blanks from Dharma Trading, then hand dyed them a single color, with some nice scrunchy texture. I then embellished them with a single piece of hand dyed fabric and a free motion quilted simple sketch of something nature-like. Each one didn’t take me long to do – I’m hoping they’ll go over well…what do you think?

Commissions

I finished 2 commissioned bags over the holiday break:

IFor Nicholle's Mom

For Nicholle's Mom

For MaryBeth's sister

I love doing commissioned, because I know that the bag has a home whilst I’m making it! I’m also able to make small changes. For example, the tote for Nicholle’s Mom has slightly longer handles, and the tote for MaryBeth’s sister is in her favorite color – PURPLE!
