Holiday Craft Sale, this weekend!

Hello Friends! Just wanted to let you all know that we are having a holiday craft sale this weekend at my home. The HGEA holiday craft fair that was supposed to have happened yesterday was cancelled so we moved it to my garage.

I have posted all of the information on my new blog http://bigideastoo.blogspot.com

It feels kind of strange to do a post without a photo! I have posted a photo of a few of the items that I have made to sell on my new blog as well.

Thanks for reading my post today and also, thank you to those who have already made a visit to my new blog home and for subscribing!

Halloween Thank You's and looking for blog help with photo space

Just wanted to give a shout out to these gals for some cute Halloween raks I received. This one is from my GF Janine...Such a cute tag! This cute tag was attached to a container of lemon bars, yummy!! From my GF Joy. Cute handmade box loaded with treats! Thanks so much!
Another cute treat box - this one from my GF Michelle. I love this image and thanks for my treats!!
Sweet treat from my GF Joni. Love, love, love this seam binding ribbon!! Thank you so much!I have a few more raks to share but will have to post it later. Can you believe that I ran out of space to upload photos?? I guess after almost 3 1/2 years of blogging, I finally exceeded my limit to upload photos. I really don't want to purchase space to upload, so I was thinking of starting a new blog. I will post the link to my new blog soon, so stay tuned and thanks for your patience!!

2010 Holiday Giftcard Holders sneak peek!

Happy Friday! Sorry for not being able to post my sneak peek earlier, there's just so much for me to do, it's insane! Before I post my sneak peek, I just had to share with you my poor hands all stained from doing yard work. I promised I washed my hands over and over again and the stain still didn't come out!! I trimmed all of the lantana flowers in the front yard that have over grown into the path where we wait for the bus. I managed to fill up the green waste can, can you believe that? LOL!Thanks for letting me share. Now, without further delay, here is my sneak peek for the 2010 giftcard holder class. It took me a while to think of the projects, but once I started working on it, the ideas kept coming!
The date for the classes will be Saturday, November 13 and Sunday, November 14 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at my home. We cut 24 kits. Please RSVP to me via email as soon as possible as kits/seats are reserved on a first come, first served basis. The cost for the class kits is $20.00. Demonstrators will pay the regular demonstrator fee. You will need to bring your basic tool kit with you to class. Also, if you own a bottle of Elmer's Craft Bond, you might want to bring it with you to avoid waiting for your turn to use what I have on the tables.
I love the giftcard holders created for this holiday season and I know that you will love them too! See you soon!

October Tag Swap

I'm so late in posting these tags since they were for the October swap. My partner was Colleen and here are the cute snowflake tags she made for me. She also slipped in some Halloween goodies, my favorite holiday! Thanks so much Colleen! Here are the tags that I made for Colleen...This is from a set called Cute Christmas. I used Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the Jolly Holiday DSP cut out with the sizzix square die. The cherry cobbler square was cut using my trimmer. I used the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch and the 1 3/4" circle punch.
Finished off the tags with some rhinestones. I love the SU rhinestones, they are so shiny!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'm madly working on stuff for the craft fair coming up on the 20th! I will be posting more information about the craft fair this week!
