Now here it is the end of December. I'm in the middle of shopping, wrapping, cookie baking and such, but the last two evening I have lost myself into figuring out the best way form perfectly imperfect colorful little acorns charms...why now??
Then last night, around 9:30, it dawns on me...I forgot all about teacher gifts (today was the last day of school before break). I made a batch of acorns in school colors and added them to some chain to make necklaces...done!

Listing on Etsy has actually become much easier, I'm happy to say. For me the delay comes from setting up the camera and then photo editing. I am almost always happy with the end result but it is the time it takes that seems to frustrate me to the point of inaction.

I am a bit green at doing shows but my fears eased up when I saw that Pam @ Frippery was attending, we had fabulous fun at the Burlington Antique show this summer. I can' t wait to see what vintage goodies she creates for the sale.

This home has a living room and family room on the first floor so we are opting to make the living room into an office. We have bookcases in storage that will need to be emptied out by the end of November.
I am currently accepting any volunteers who don't mind getting down and dirty..lol.

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle “It’s a Cultural Thing” Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Shona’s blog then you are in the right spot. If you happened by , you can start back at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog to get all the details on prizes that will be given away .
For this blog hop I choose to use stamps from the Brocade Backgrounds Set and tie in other items that represent my family’s cultural heritage.
Here are two altered French Journals using book pages, ephemera, ribbons and buttons. The stamped images add texture with SNS flocking.
Click HERE for directions on how these were made.
My husbands’ mother was from Germany, she arrived in the United States in the 1960’s. Though we never had the opportunity to meet, Bob often says she had quite the crafty side and he thought we would get along famously. I had her in mind when I made this Altered Wood Block Art with German text.

Thanks for stopping by, this was a fun theme and I’m sure you will want to hop on over to Barbara’s blog next to see her creations. Don’t forget to leave comments at each stop to become eligible for prizes.
