Had a successful show this weekend. There were 3 of us in our booth, my friends Carolyn (pictured) and Janet, and myself. Carolyn did the best, but I made about $135, so I was pleased. Not sure when our next show will be, would like to do a couple more before Christmas but nothing scheduled yet.

I was browsing the interwebs the other day looking for cute crochet snowmen patterns. I came across this pattern for a snowman jar cozy and thought I'd try it. It's really cute and easy.
I decided I'd try other designs as well. My first variation is what I'm calling a Christmas Tree. I used Red Heart green and silver Holiday yarn and glued on some tinsel pompoms for the decorations. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
I have a couple of other ideas in mind. Once I get them done I will share them as well.

The magnets are a new craft. I originally started using some large buttons I had. Then I saw a post in a group I belong to and thought I'd give their idea a shot. The magnets are made using up cycled costume jewelry. It's a great use for broken earrings and pendants. Sorry for the quality of the pics.

I am so behind on my crafting. I have a huge craft fair next weekend and I am nowhere near ready. I have ornaments to make, dog sweaters to crochet, I need to finish my jar cozies, make more dog toys, get things priced....I'm looking at a few long nights ahead of me this week. I'll post a few pics later of some of the items I will have for sale.
