Flying All Day

I didn't think I'd ever have time to get to the computer today. We are in the process of setting up a second, shared booth at the craft market for our Christmas stuff. Of course, everything is neatly packed away (not!) At least the merchandise is. The trimmings were just shoved in where ever they fit when we tore down last year. Thursday was set as the day to set it all up, so there is precious little time to find and check through everything. I hit the floor running at 5 am and didn't stop until dinner time.

I do not do jewelry for Christmas. Ornaments are so much more fun. Beaded ornaments don't sell well because of the time involved. I pictured one so you get an idea of what I make. The big sellers are my hand painted balls and of course I don't have a picture of one of those. Lower priced plastic beaded ornaments go well also. I "cheat" and throw in some stuffed animals by Russ Berrie. There's not enough time in the day to make every single thing. As long as it's okay with the co-op, it's okay with me.

Don't forget to send in your suggestion for the next give away I have. I have some pretty passionate pleas for certain items, so if you want your desire known, speak up!

Beaded ornaments are beautiful, but you are right they are a lot of work
