Two Christmas Cards Posted on examiner.com

I have been lax on updating my blog the past several weeks.  I had my first craft show this past weekend and I was working feverishly to get some projects completed in time.  While I would have liked to have done better, I increased my sales over the prior year by over 30%, so I am happy with that.  It seemed like attendance was a little off from the prior year, but it was hard to tell for sure.  I am now starting to get ready for my show at St. Thomas More School on December 4th.

I have had two Christmas cards published on examiner.com as part of the Creative Team for GoneScrapbooking.com.  The first is this Victorian Santa Card that I made using paper from Graphic 45:

This next card is one of my favorites from Whiff of Joy,  It is called Melinda Christmas Angel and I used beautiful papers from the Figgy Pudding line from Basic Grey:

For more information and a complete list of ingredients, please refer to the articles on examiner.com.

I am looking forward to a special crop with friends this weekend.  I have a special order for 18 teacher Post-it note holders that I will be working on, along with more items for my next craft show.

Country Garden card on examiner.com

I have been really busy making things to sell in my upcoming craft fairs.  I have one in mid-November and another in early December.  In addition, I took a large amount of papercrafts to The Lemon Tree in Wake Forest to sell.  It is getting down to the wire and I still have many things to make.  I am going to have to scale back on a few things in order to be ready.

I submitted this card with an image from Sugar Nellie called Country Garden as part of the Creative Team for GoneScrapbooking.com.  It was featured on the National Scrapbook Site on examiner.com last week and I am just now getting around to posting it. For a complete list of supplies check out the article.

Sooner or later I will get around to posting more details of the Copic Intermediate Certification class that I took two weekends ago in Chicago. Right now I am really focused on making lots of craft show items.
