I’ve had a lot of visitors searching for my salt shaker angel ornament tutorial since I posted about working on it a few weeks ago. Yippee, it has now officially been posted. You can find the tutorial link here.
It is quick, easy and a real best seller for craft shows. I have one left only because I saved one at home. Seriously, after gluing the heads, I finished 20 of them in an evening.
Whew! I’ve been crafting and crafting and crafting…
Between special orders, new design articles and craft shows, my living room looked a little bit like Santa’s Workshop.
Here’s several in progress.
These bed spring Santas were inspired by a client and previous bedspring characters I have made. In addition to the bed spring, a chenille bedspread was also repurposed. The client purchased several and I made many more for last weekend’s craft show. They sold very well.
The tutorial can be found on Thrifty Fun.

I had previously posted my sweater ornament tutorial on Restyled Junk. You can find it here.
The next photos are of more projects in progress that I made for my last craft show. The tutorials are in different stages of completeness. When published, I will post the links.

Lastly, I want to show you what hubs made.
The back is a queen headboard and the sides are from the matching foot board. It sold at this last weekend’s craft show.
A few pictures of the show this past weekend.
I was still in the process of staging, but…
…the show was opening and I thought I had better take a couple of pictures while I could.
It looks better in person. It’s hard to get a shot of just my stuff without the clutter of background booths.
This is a double booth. We almost always have a double booth, unless the booth fees are too pricey.
We have a show coming up next weekend that’s a single booth. I’ll have to edit out a lot.
