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.
****Two weeks before Christmas and all through the house,
Scents and sights of the season filled the rooms and pleased the spouse.
The stockings were hung on the buffet with care.
Oh well, no fireplace! I will not despair.
Above the entertainment center was festooned with charm. With no mantel, it couldn’t do any harm.
The snowman decor was stuffed into a birdcage, and I was writing my Christmas lists as another year turned a page.***
Yep, that’s all I got for that parody. I have been thinking about these two weeks remaining before Christmas though. There is so much to accomplish in a short amount of time. I can happily say I am miles ahead of where I was a week ago. The decorations are mostly complete and the pile of baked goodies is making me very happy.
But, all is not calm. I still have masses of Christmas shopping to do and Christmas gifts I really want to craft. So…in keeping myself on track, I am posting a few of my Christmas tutorial links. They are, of course, frugal and fast, as I know everybody is in need of quick, inexpensive holiday ideas.
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.

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.
