Seeing Stars

Just checking in real quick with an update on what I'm doing today. Lots of cutting, folding, and glittering!! I'm making stars for a show I'm in on Saturday.

And - here's a quick peek at some things I'm getting together for the Domestic Bliss Happy Miscellany Craft Swap!

Getting things done...

I'm finally getting a few things accomplished around here. Here's a picture of another Christmas gift tag (I used a few of the items that I won from Analise's giveaway!!!) I couldn't find a decent spot to take a picture anywhere today. It's dreary, rainy, perfect to stay in and mess with crafty things!

I have joined the Happy Miscellany Craft Swap over at Domestic Bliss. I'm looking forward to going through my "stash" and sending off some items, while receiving new ones in return. Should be fun!! Check it out

It's Been Awhile...

I've been a little delinquent in the blogging arena lately...BUT, I have been out and about and visiting my newlywed daughter & son-in-law.

This picture is of the Mackinac Bridge. The trip was gorgeous, as the fall colors in Upper Michigan & northern lower Michigan were at their peak. We had a great visit.

I've been wanting to post pictures of the jar of goodies that I won from Analise's giveaway at SugarSugar. The colors are great and I can't wait to start making some gift tags or banners or something!!!

I've been busy working on Christmas tags and have several packaged up and ready to sell. There are two large and two small in each package. So far I only have enough for my up-coming shows, but perhaps at some point will get some on my Etsy - depends on how ambitious I get :) It seems that lately I've been spending so much time looking at blogs for inspiration, that I fail to accomplish much - but I am REALLY inspired!!!!!

Sad Days in Wisconsin

Several weeks ago I posted about a show that I was in called Art in the Square. This annual event takes place just as Fall is beginning to turn the northwoods into a beautiful showpiece. Crandon, WI is the host town for this event. It is a small town, with a quaint, old, brick building-lined downtown area. You may have seen the latest news on Crandon - it's been on the local & national news this week.

The people of Crandon are trying to come to grips with the fact that one of their off-duty police officers shot and killed 6 young people from their community. The police officer was only 20 himself. He was later gunned down and killed as well. It's hard to imagine. I live about 30 miles from Crandon and we feel pretty isolated, sheltered & safe here. The communities are pretty tight knit and while I do not know any of the families directly involved, I do know many families from Crandon. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the many friends throughout the community.

Tags, tags, tags...

I spent the afternoon making Christmas tags!! If I would have been thinking...I would have put on some Christmas time...there are still lots more to make!!! Lots of pretty stuff!
I have several shows coming up and need to crank out some quick items. Yes, I think the Christmas music just may help...
