Amazing Bazaar Booth

We had a great time at the Elma Bazaar last weekend. As always Saturday morning was busy with the early bird shoppers. I must say there was this one booth that was AMAZING, Oh yeah, it was ours! It looked great and I can't take credit for it, Connie makes about 90% of the items and sets it all up. She does such a great job as you can see. All I had to do is give her my items and show up. Here are some pictures of the booth and some of the creative handmade things that were in it.

Sorry you missed it? Come next year and see what we are making for you!!!

Elma Bazaar This Weekend

I'm finally finished making things for the Elma Bazaar this Saturday and Sunday in Elma, Washington at the fairgrounds. If you live in the area, this is a great bazaar, one you don't want to miss. I will be there with my talented friend Connie who has invited me to participate with her. It's not an easy bazaar to become a vendor in because of the long waiting list, so I am grateful to her for letting me join her there. Here are some more things I've finished.

Mr. Snowman

Polka-dot Santa hat
(I painted the bell green on this one)

More Santa hats in different patterns and sizes

Toile Santa hats

Pear Ornaments
(I've seen these around and had to try them)

I used my favorite Christmas fabric
(Funky Christmas by Michael Miller)

I know I've already have posted aprons I've made, but I love trying different fabrics.
(These I used Sweet by Urban Chiks)

Some little boy ties. I wish I did more of these. It's harder to find things for boys at bazaars and even harder to find cute ties.

Plastic bag dispenser using Sweet by Urban Chiks
(Too cute to hide in a Pantry)

Another dispenser using Oh Cherry Oh by Me and My Sister.
That's all I have for now. I hope to post pictures of the booth after the bazaar.
Hope to see you there!!!

Beaded Watch Bracelets

Today I'm posting about these awesome watch bracelets my Mom makes. What you do is pick what type of watch face you want, then what type of bracelet band you like and hook them together and you have a very custom made watch. She's been very busy making all different kinds using different types of beads and colors. If you love them, and I know you do, you can email her and she will make you a custom made watch.

Halloween Fun

Logan's kindergarten class had a field trip to the pumpkin patch and I went along with him. He loves this time of year because his birthday is on Halloween.

Logan is now 6 years old. He's growing up so fast. He was a cute chubby baby with his tongue always sticking out. I'm glad his tongue stays in his mouth now. He's a fun kid to have around.

Logan was a Mad Scientist, Tanner a Vampire, Preston also a Vampire, and Spencer was Indiana Jones. Spencer almost went without a costume. We had bought him a hat and he couldn't find it so he borrowed Grandpa's hat.

Mr. Clean and Hippie Girl. I forced Jason to wear a gold earring, he didn't want to at first, but it really completed the outfit. He made a great Mr. Clean.

Now the fun part...eating the candy.
