Ornaments for favors.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating a tic tac favor box that can also double as an ornament. So get out your Paper Trimmer and let’s get started.

You will need a piece of card stock cut at 2″ X 9″. You will score at 4 3/16″ and then flip and score again at the same measurement. Punch the ends with a tag topper punch. Decorate and then string a ribbon through to create a cute, but useful, ornament.

For how to make this favor as well as a snowman one please watch at https://youtu.be/8fnNqdGW6e4.

Happy Crafting!

At peace with rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today is the day to rest and recharge. I usually rest by not doing anything. Anything! But I also enjoy talking to people and being social. So, for today, I am enjoying talking with craft fair goers and simply enjoying being where I am. I love feeling like I am present. It is great to feel at peace and rested while still working. Did I tell you I love my job? Thank you for allowing me to do what I do.

Do you enjoy what you do? Or at least an aspect of it?

Happy Crafting!

Giving back by showing up.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Some days I am talking about sharing your smile or grabbing lunch with a friend. Other times it’s about mailing cards for an 18 year old boy that needs a full mailbox since he has no party or friends. And still at times it is buying the donuts, the pizza, the wrapping paper, and so on.

So for today I am asking you to show up to the many events happening locally. Not only is there Card Class, but there are several other things as well on Saturday.

  • The United Methodist Church in Yucca Valley is holding a craft fair.
  • The United Methodist Church in 29 Palms is holding a parking lot sale.
  • The 29 Palms Elks Lodge is holding their craft fair and car show.
  • The Boys and Girls Club in Yucca Valley is holding a Krispy Kreme donut fundraiser. If you want a dozen please let me know.
  • Farmers Market is happening in Joshua Tree and 29 Palms. (The crepes in 29’s market are so good.)

I am sure there are others, but this is just to get you started. If you don’t show up then there is no reason for the coordinators to keep doing these events. I would encourage you to show up.

Happy Crafting!

Resting by cleaning.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! How are you preparing for your week? Are you resting, planning, or picking up some of the piles? I am doing a bit of everything. I am taking inventory and getting things back in order after a three day craft fair.

So what do you do to regain control?

Happy Crafting!

Cleaning up…

It’s Sabbath Sunday and today is a little different than most Sundays. Since Christmas is right around the corner today is a catch up, clean up kind of day for me. Last night was the Open House so I will be cleaning a bit and then taking some inventory. It’s time to clean out the Christmas craft fair inventory and begin for spring and Valentine’s Day. I will put some work in today so I don’t have to tomorrow or Tuesday.

What are you up to today?

Happy Crafting!
