Made by Me

I was in a craft show last Saturday and I have one more the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  I was going to wait until after that one to show the things I made. But I changed my mind.  Here's a peek at some of my things.  I really loved making these things this year.  I've finally realized that it's much more fun to create because you love what you're creating as opposed to trying to make things that will sell.  Does that make sense?  I mean, of course I want things to sell, but it's not as important as just loving what I'm doing!

I hope you enjoy taking a little look at my little creations.  I'll share more after the next show. 
Thanks for visiting!

I agree with you Marie..just make what you love to much more fun! Your newest pieces are so wonderful!! I love the snowmen scenes in (am I right?) tart tins! and your creations with wooden spools-darling! What is the be joyful bird ornament made him! Tissue paper flowers...the cutest! The joy bottle...well, I don't even have to say it. You are awesome to have gotten this stuff made with all of the "life" going on around you and working, too. Bravo dear friend!

You definitely have been busy. I love them all but the journals are my favorite. I understand what you mean by creating. I usually choose items that make me smile and then hope others will like them too. Good luck with your show!

It makes perfect sense Marie. I would think that if you aren't making things that make you happy it would take half the fun out of it. Everything is adorable. I love how you used the sheet music in your projects.
