Holly Raleigh is over. It was alot of fun. The weather stunk but I saw a lot of my peeps. I was also amazed at how quickly my Harry Potter items flew out the door. Here is a really bad photo of the House Garland
The little boy that bought my garland was so excited. I told him I was glad it was going to a good home.
I also made a notebook and that went to another little boy and he loved it and told me he is already writing in it. I don't have a picture of the notebook.
My journals sold well and so did my dress garlands. I am now moving my stuff down to Bliss Bake Shop and Munchkin Designs. I will have my product back there this week.
I am working on some vintage University Of Oregon banners that I hope to have in the shop soon.
Here is a sneak peak at my new Wedding Garland. It will be available at Holly Raleigh. Dec. 11th at Raleigh Hills School Beaverton, Oregon. This garland would make a great shower gift. Each bridesmaid can take a dress home after the shower so she has keepsake from the event and the bride can keep the brides dress of course :)
I'm back from my Thanksgiving vacation. I ate alot of good food and gained alot of bad weight. But I have been busy making new items for Holly Raleigh like the above Gumdrop Garland and below my Sugar Plum Garland.
Sorry about the photos they're a tad blurry. I'm moving so fast these days everything is a blur including my photos. :)
cotton balls, glue, glitter, a paper cone, misc. faux gum drops, and a hot glue gun?
Well, make a cotton ball tree of course. Duh!
These just make me happy.
Here's how to put some joy in your life.
Round up your supplies:
old paint brush
fire up the hot glue gun and you're off!
Start at the bottom of the cone and carefully apply the hot glue three cotton ball spaces at a time.
Next apply cotton balls and press the balls as you go. Keep this up for the entire cone. Then dap a bunch of craft glue on wherever you feel like it. Sprinkle glitter over the glue and shake of extra glitter. Let that dry.
Next I hot glued some, faux gum drops I had tucked away in a drawer, around the tree. You can hot glue buttons or small pom poms, or old tiny ornaments wherever you think they will look good.
