Show season is nearing an end.......

I love this time of year.  And I prepare for it all year long.  But I also love it when show season is over.  Every year I say.....I will not over-book.......but every year, I do.  So, this year I have done:  Holly Days Fall show, Unique Boutique fall show, Grandmother's House fall and holiday boutiques, Red Rocks Country Club holiday boutique, Christmas in the Country, Applewood Arts in two locations, and Conifer Newcomers and Neighbors holiday boutique.  I have had to cancel two shows because of scheduling conflicts.  I plan on doing a couple of small shows in December.  So after all of this, I ended up sick in bed.  Not usual for me, but a warning, I must heed.

Best sellers this year are:
Sold a ton of my paintbrush Santas

 These candy canes are always a good seller!
 My ornie wreaths were a big hit!
 I always sell many pumpkins
 My best all time seller is my crescent santas.  
 These lighted rag swags are a huge hit
 These are made from dollar store plastic candy canes.  I sell for $1 each.  Its a great way to use up scraps of fabric
 I nearly sold out this year on my ping pong ball snowmen
 Clothespin snowmen were a hit again this year
 I sold every one of these clocks that I made
 I love this litte tree in a did someone else.
 Another crescent Santa

My canned snowmen were a hit!

 I only got three of the suitcases done......all sold.....gotta get busy for next year!

So, as you can see, I am sitting here with a lot of empty boxes and totes.   I just love what I do!  And there is such a satisfaction when others like it too!

So this weekend, I have the last Applewood show and Thanksgiving is close behind it.  I have a  head full of ideas already for next year....and I can't wait to share them with you....Stay tuned!


  1. So glad it went well! You make cute stuff.

  2. Glad to hear you had a good year...I have two shows left myself!! ~Carolynk

  3. How do you prepare for the next year? Do you just start making things until you get bored or do you have a set schedule?


Leave me a comment, a thought, or a giggle!
