Christmas is Coming

The holiday bazaar went pretty well. I sold 3 pain pillows, 2 scarves, a coin purse and a reg purse. I was very nervous when I set up and for about the first hour, but after a while I wasnt so nervous. There was another woman there who was selling the same stuff I was. She brought a lot more and her purses were great. I think my pain pillows are better though and my purses were a different design. Hers were very nice though.

My friend sells partylite candles and she finally convinced me to sell them with her. She makes pretty good money doing it and she has loads of free stuff. I love partylite stuff too. I have another friend who sells it and the two of them are competitors. I hope she isnt mad for me signing under my other friend. I really hope she isnt mad.

Anyway, I have been thinking about Christmas decorating. Last year I had no decorations whatsoever. I had to buy everything so I only bought what we needed for our tree. This year I want to make some decorations but also buy some things that I cant make myself. Joanns has some great sales on decorations coming up soon and as long as I have some extra cash I am going to splurge on some. I am thinking of putting lights up around my window in the living room. Stockings near the fireplace, but I want some more.
Maybe I will make Christmas potholders to replace my everyday ones...
hmm... anyone have some other ideas? Maybe I will prowl Craftster for some inspiration.

Congratulations on selling your stuff! At my first craft show I sold NOTHING. NADA. I sat there for several hours, then packed up. Your wallets are so sweet. I'd like to give that a try one of these days. Maybe after the holiday sewing frenzy dies down. :o)

Your tutorial carnival is a great idea!

Oops, that last comment was from me. I'll try to type the url in correctly this time....I keep forgetting people are moving into blogger beta.

Thanks! I was bummed because I didnt sell more. I am just glad I sold that stuff though. Thanks for your compliments. I got the wallet tutorial off of craftster.
