A Bit of Crafting

Here are a few things I've made lately.

This was for display in our entry on Thanksgiving Day.  The graphic is from The Creative Patch blog here. I glittered the orange mums, but it's hard to tell in the photo. The ribbon was from my friend Chris, and the tatted circles were from a table runner I purchased at a recent estate sale.  The paper tape is Tim Holtz. This still needs something, but I'm not sure what. By next Thanksgiving, it may look a bit different.

This is the display I had on our black hutch. I just recently got the footed dish from my parents. It belonged to my dad's mom. The platter is from a yard sale, and the pumpkin is from Marshall's.  The sweet silver spoon at the base of the platter was made by Robin Thomas.
I made one more tag for my version of the 7 Gypsies Junk Drawer Advent Calendar.  If I put up a tag each day starting tomorrow, I just have seven days to get more made.  Better get busy!
I'll be back later to show some things from recent swaps and to share some fun news.  Here's a sneak peak at what I made for one of the swaps.


  1. You make the most beautiful things...

  2. I agree with Lisa! Wonderful. And nice to have a new piece from your family for your hutch. I can't wait to hear your exciting news!

  3. Oh my. I am holding this ornament in my hot little hands and it is gorgeous. Thank you for sending it my way... and the little goodies tucked inside :)
