Fixed it!

Here is the picture of the cloche I bought with the cute little winter scene on a box from Skippy Doodle Designs and Sue Parker
Love it!

As I said in my last post. I stopped by a friend's house to do some scrapping of sorts. I am not a scrapbooker, but I love paper and making I made Christmas ornaments for my tree! Here are the pictures....

As you can see, I have a love affair with glitter! hehehehe...

Some more of my holiday creations are on my FB page

Time for me....

Yesterday I went back to my old stomping grounds in Saratoga County, NY to visit a fabulous store,
Schuyler Pond Home & Garden
727 Route 29 East
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

I had visited before, but yesterday was special because there was an event featuring some artists I have admired online for many years from Earth Angels

After quickly surveying the beautiful eye candy, I made a second round to decide what would come home with me. I had been looking for a cloche to put on my table and I found one at Skippy Doodle Designs.
. I also purchased another little winter scene that is now highlighted in my new cloche. I chatted with Sue Parker, of Skippy Doodle and Jen O'Connor of Earth Angels. Both woman were delightful.

I also snagged an angel ornament I have admired online for awhile now from Debbie Thibeault . It now holds a spot center stage on my tree.

On my way home I stopped by Miss Ellies, a family friend who was doing a weekend scrapbooking event with my mom, sister and niece. What fun making things, watching Christmas movies, and eating homemade chicken & dumplings. I made 4 Christmas ornaments to add to my tree. I'm enjoying decorating this year. Last year I wasn't able to because of an accident I was in. I was lucky I even had another Christmas to see. It was, however, a catalyst for change and change has happened, all for the good. So the tree went up right after Thanksgiving and decorating has been an ongoing thing since then.

To finish off my weekend,I am going to go for a ride on Jerry, and come home, watch movies and cook my kids a nice dinner. My son is home from college and I have both my children under my roof. I'm a happy girl!

As soon as I can fix the issue of not being able to upload pictures...UGHHHHHH!, I will post more pictures.

One of my preces sold on ETSY!!!!!

I am so excited that my adorable little bee pendent sold on ETSY. I have offered some of what I make for sale to support my art habit. I wish I had more time to promote and fine tune my ETSY shop, to maybe sell more. I was ecstatic when I got the e mail that this necklace sold. I packed it up and shipped it out immediately. I hope the buyer enjoys it as much as I did making it.

I am considering taking a PMC certification course in January. It will be an investment, but I will get discounted silver and other supplies. It works out that I already have the time off from my new job. Maybe it is a sign????

Lately, I have been busy making Christmas ornaments and decorating my home. I need to get some photos to post. I have made some very cute things!!!!!
