My Sister Loves Daffodils

My sister, Luanne, loves daffodils . . . so when I saw a 'sister banner' idea online a year or so ago, I knew I had to make one for her with a daffodil theme. This year's holiday break from work has given me time to complete it! I LOVE to play with paper and Mod-Podge!!

The photos below are of the back of the banner.

Love these little "Clear-Bits"!

I purchased these clear charms from Red Lead Paperworks and couldn't wait to decorate them. I'm not sure, at this point, what project I'll attach them to. I'm too attached to them to put them on greeting cards, but they'd make sweet pendants. :)

All Things Snow

Warm winter greetings! I love this time of year! I tend to overwhelm myself with creative projects and can't always accomplish everything I want to, but that's ok because I thrive on being overwhelmed and I DO accomplish a lot! This holiday season I've made a commitment to host a "Snowflake Card-Making Event" on Sunday, December 9th from 11am-1pm. I have no clue whether anyone will attend the event but at this point it really doesn't matter. I'm planning for participants and following through with the prep-work. The snowflake-themed cards below are my 'samples' which are on display at Funky Junk on the Ithaca Commons, where the event will be held. If all else fails, I've got a very good start on my OWN holiday cards!

My second commitment for this month was to register to sell my handmade items at a craft fair on Thursday, December 13th from 11am-2pm. This isn't my first craft fair, although it's been a few years since I prepared for my last one. More on this in a future post! For the moment, my mind is focused on the above!
