Busy, busy, busy.

This time of year is usually a busy time of year. This year I’ve decided to make it even busier. Not intentionally of course, but…. It sure seemed like a good idea at the time.
Not only do I have my day job, which which is becoming a drama filled “do I have to” more and more each passing day, but I’ve decided to try my hand at craft fairs and the like. I love making things, and I’d really love to make a living off of making things, but I will never succeed if I don’t put more effort into it, so I am.
I am have a booth at the fall swap meet that is put on by a city near me this Saturday, and I am going to have a table at a craft fair on December 2nd.
Not only am I trying to make stuff to sell, but I am making the displays also. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the days lately for all of it.
I am both nervous and excited. This will be the first time I’ve done this on my own, and I’ve only done something like this twice before, both of which was sharing space with other people.
Here are a few pics of what I’ve gotten pics of.

I love it when a plan turns out better than expected

Recently, my daughter-in-law sent me a text. It was a picture of a bare wall that they have in their house that is the first wall you see when you walk in. In that text she requested “something spiffy” to go on that wall, and that it go along with the two pictures I did for the grand kids.

So I worked on that project this weekend. The entire weekend. of course, I can see where it could be improved on but I am very happy to say….. It turned out much better than I anticipated. It’s awesome! I only have a finishing touch or two and it is completely finished. (an edging around the outside of the frames would be nice, and clean)

Although it is their Christmas present, my son will be out to sea during that time so I am sending it early. Both so that he may see it, and so that he can hang it. Take a peek at the pics below. It was actually quite a bit of work, hadn’t realized how much until I was working on it, but it was so worth it!

Button Trees!

Before Guild Wars 2 takes over my computer (I haven’t had the joy of playing it yet but it looks good), I figured I’d take a minute to share my latest whims.

As I mentioned before, it is that time of year when the creative bug bites me and I find myself up to my ears in projects I want to do. Here’s a bit of what I’ve done. They are all made out of paper, glue, and buttons on either foam board or canvas. I am hoping to make googly eye trees soon for Halloween where I put googly eyes instead of buttons on somewhat more sinister trees. In the meantime… enjoy 🙂

This is my current picture that i am working on. The one Ive posted twice but has yet to show up. The post where I went into a long rambling post about what materials i used and how I came about doing this. it is by far not my best picture I’v done, but it is the one that is currently sitting on my desk awaiting completion.
