Craft Show

I am getting ready for a huge craft show/event on the 12th of Dec. I will have a large area to display my items. A corner spot with a wall behind me.

I will have Christmas and non Christmas items, gift ideas a variety of items and various prices.

I have a few ornaments so I am not sure if I should put up an artificial tree and hang the ornaments on that or just display them on a table. Any ideas, suggestions/opinions?

We will be able to set up the night before which is a great.

If you have any ideas, hints, or suggestions I would love to hear them.
Also do you take Credit Cards or checks? Or just cash?
Have a great day!

A cold...ugh

I got hit with the cold bug..the kind that has you in bed for a week, stuffy nose, runny nose, headache, cant think, cant move kinda bug.

Now I am finally up and about but zapped of energy. Start something but cant seem to finish. It still know sound stuffy occaisional cough, clear the throat kinda thing....ugh. Two weeks of this!
If you get hit with this ...just get plenty of rest, drink lots of fluids and rest rest rest.....................

I got behind on my crafts, so frustrating when you know you have things to do but no energy to do it. Just slept the days away! I am usually like the energy bunny if I catch a cold I keep going and going...not this time!
My family was doesnt stay in bed..she must really be sick!!

The last 2 days in bed I did get on the internet and watched a lot of crafting ideas on you tube. A lot of ideas and creativity out there. I have the Ranger Melting Pot and found a lot uses for it on you tube. Wow! ....Now to get the energy and try some of them.

Keep safe and warm.

until next time

handpainted Turkeys set of 2

Handpainted resin turkeys, great for the Holiday table decor.
When I saw these I had to get them.
It has been awhile since I painted on resin. I forgot how much fun it was. Start with a basic color, add a different shade and add different colors and the turkeys come "alive".
I know Gobble gobble.... : - )

Taquitos and Cheese Recipe

This is a quick and easy recipe that my family and friends love.
Thought I would share.

1 box frozen taquitos (beef or chicken)

1 medium can green enchalada sauce ( mild, medium or hot..your choice)

1 pkg shredded cheddar or monteray jack cheese (or shred your own)

cook taquitos in oven according to package directions.

after cooking pour (or ladle) green enchalada sauce over taquitos

spread the shredded cheese on top

place back in oven and cook until cheese has melted, about 3 minutes


great for a pot luck.

New items

I just listed this large clothespin Note clip in my Etsy and Artfire shops.
This would be a cute gift for a teacher.
My youngest daughter is a teacher and she needs gifts to give for her fellow teachers/friends. I painted this design on the clothespin and she liked this ...I wonder if Santa ordered one for her to place on her desk?
Artfire Crazy Train Rider for today is
she says " I sew athletic wear for fun and function. To that end, the best fabric available is used, and all seams are finished. Customize your shorts or leggings! It's great fun."
She also has a variety of other items in her shop. Stop by and see what she has.
I take care of a 3 year old during the day. He calls my Craft Room "Gramma's work" Every now and then he will say "Gramma lets go to your work". Today we went to "my work" and he said I needed to clean it up so he helped me clean my "work". He put my paints away. Right now he is taking his nap so I think I will go to my "work" and put the paints where they should be ( I keep them in order of color) and maybe get some painting done!!
