A gray and dreary weekend turned into a festival of holiday craft-making.

With, luckily, a few dry hours to run outside for some photography.

(Those are tiny pine trees on the garland.  Too bad I didn't think to post a close up. :P)

I also worked more on re-shooting some existing Etsy listings
It was time for a little sprucing up (yuk yuk yuk..).

I've sorted of pounced on the embroidery train lately.  It's veery relaxing, plus as the hubbers pointed out ("wait you're telling me these threads are only $0.35 each?!"), it's a lot less spendy than some of my other crafting addictions...

This little guy is from my knitting frenzy days.  I think he'll be making an encore performance in my shop later this week....

With any luck, I'll be well prepared for my next craft show....THIS Saturday!  Eeep!

{ how was your weekend? }
