Made By Me

Here are some of the things I made for our arts & crafts show.......

A bottle brush tree on a silver tray.

Bottle cap pins ~ these are so fun to make and to wear! I only sold a couple of these so I guess I'll do a bit of Christmas shopping right here!

I love these jars of matches....cute & practical!  There's a good size "strike pad" glued to the bottom of the bottle.  My little sign suggests that these would be perfect to include with a candle.

My little walnut pin cushions...I made a dozen all together. I packaged most in a bag with a crinkly paper and tied them up with a bow.

I used to dress and/or accessorize hundreds of bears but now I only do a few of them at a time. I made three of these cute little wintery bears and sold each one! I also gave a fourth away as my contribution to the door prizes we offered at our show.

Now I'll spend my creative time making some Christmas gifts. I've "pinned" some cute ideas on my "Grandbaby Fun" board.  I'm looking forward to making a bunch of peg dolls and a couple other things too!

Love all your creations. The bottle brush trees are adorable and what a clever idea with the jar of matches.

What a cute bear and the bottle brush tree is perfect with him. The bottle brush tree is beautiful, such a shabby chic look!
