We are enjoying a wonderfully warm, Indian summer here in Colorado -- most days, at least. Today we went on a 4 mile hike; it was 77 degrees out, with sunshine and blue, blue skies!Dawn. I haven't made them for years, but am getting ready to actually sell at a craft fair (unheard of for me!) so I'm making a new batch for that!
After the little heads dried, I painted their cheeks and noses; now they are ready to be "dressed".
When finished, they will be similar to this guy I made before (above, on a previous year's Christmas tree.) I hope people love them, and buy them! I'm also going to make some different ornaments, and put together some packages of Christmas ephemera to sell. My buddy Rebecca will be doing it with me, and is going to make some stuff, too.
When I was deciding what to create for the craft fair, I dragged up only the Christmas "crafting" supplies (not the decor or anything else...) from the basement. Above are the boxes and boxes filled with stuff. So...you'd think that someone with that much Christmas crafting material wouldn't need any more, right?
