I may not be blogging often, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! My good friend volunteered her mother's house for an open house spotlighting all her crafty friends and those with home businesses. So I got to work and sewed, sewed, sewed.
Here are a few photo's of things I made. In the mean time we are completely snowed in today. Which is OK with me. This weekend was a free weekend for us. Yay! No plans! We slept in. Enjoyed a hot drink before we headed outside to play in the snow. By 9am we already had 6 inches on the ground.
It's now 1pm and we have passed the 8'' mark. And it's windy too. So you can't even tell we shoveled out our walkways and driveway. We are taking it easy today. I spend most of the morning warming back up with my favorite drink. 1 scoop of hot chocolate mix (dark chocolate swiss miss) + coffee+ dollop of cream. Homemade mocha. Yum! I have seen recipes for homemade gifts where you mix instant coffee with hot chocolate mix in a mason jar. Make some homemade marshmallows and BAM! excellent and yummy!
I'm working on getting the kitchen in order and then it's upstairs to the sewing room to finish a custom bag. Then it's time to make a tree skirt. I picked up the fabric from a local shop and I love it. It's festive but not commercial. No santa's, no snowmen. I'll post pics soon enough.
And I completely missed any Xmas etsy business. But oh well. I'll have to get some pics done soon from the items that didn't sell at the craft open house. Or I can just save them for Mother's Day because the same friend volunteered my house for another open house 3 weeks before Mother's Day! But I also had some friends volunteer to help clean so how could I say no?
