Christmas Boxes

My neighbor, Anna,  asked me to make 2 boxes for her necklaces.  As soon as I saw the necklaces, I wanted one too.  I show Anna my Kusudama.  She liked them and wanted  them for gifts; I suggested  we  trade.  She thought it was a great idea.  So I'll be getting the blue necklace in January.

Aren't they pretty? I like both of them.  May be I'll ask if she likes to trade with something else.

This will be my last post for 2014.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

AG Doll Dresses

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe it has been more than a month since I post!  I had been busy with craft shows. Some shows were good some were BAD.    If the craft show coordinator advertised well, then we will have good show.  Many just took our money and didn't do their part.  Oh, well, then we will never go back there again.   I booked one craft show every week since the end of October.  Some weeks I even had 2 shows.  Crazy, I know.  I won't do that again next year.  

Here is what I had been working on

Everyone only wanted dresses and the colors are pink or purple.  I made a bunch of tops over the Summer; no one looked at them.  Everyone just grabbed the dresses.  So I had been making dresses.

Also, I wanted to share my Black Friday fine.  I wasn't going to shop on Black Friday.    However, Victor was browsing Walmart flyers and I happened to  catch the page with the Red Heart With Love yarn on sale, $1.97 per skein for 315 yards.  My favorite yarns on sale.  I had to get some! May be more than some.  It turned out not only me wanted yarns.  The first Walmart I went to only had a few skeins left.  I went to 3 Walmart to get these yarns.  I didn't know how many skeins I bought.  Some were not in the picture.  I still need pink,green, and teal.  Couldn't fine those colors at any Walmart.   Hopefully these yarns will last me a while. 
Until next time....
