So, I had a post all ready to go a couple of days ago (or was that yesterday?) and blogger ate it, I could've been operator error, I don't remember, but anyways, it was eaten one way or another :) LOL

So, this is mostly a pictoral post...I'll be back to share more about my oh-so-exciting life (LOL) later :)

This is what I did yesterday :) I had BigBlueEyes & Princess yesterday :) It went very smoothly!! They were both lots of fun!!

This is one of the ornaments I made at the bazaar Friday & Saturday. I had a lot of fun, and painted everything (except the original coat, they already came painted), but I painted the snowmen, the writing, and the "antiquing" medium (I LOVE THAT STUFF!!) while they waited. It was really a lot of just makes you feel good when people are willing to pay money for something you made. Such a neat feeling.

Here are the other kinds of ornaments I had. For the lady that had me do 10 for her, I ended up painting on all of them, even the stars & stuff, and they turned out really great. These are ones I made pretty early on with the little wooden embellishments I had on hand. Next year I'll know to have some ready, because people really liked the reindeer & stuff. Maybe I'll get some Santa's & more snowmen...I'm sure I could find some different kinds of snowmen. Super cute.

Well, that's all you're getting from me. Oh, and because Josy had mentioned ordering ornaments from me, I'll share this. There was another lady at the bazaar who asked if she could get my name & number, because she might be calling me for an order, and when I told the lady in charge of the bazaar, she said that any $$ I made after the bazaar was mine, to do with as I see fit, so I might just set it back & let it go towards operating expenses for the next bazaar. I really had fun, and I think that people really appreciated all the things I contributed. I just had that feeling of a job well done afterwards, ya know? Just with decorating & set-up & stuff...

Okay, seriously, I'm done...oh, except to say that our tree is up & waiting for ornaments...that's what I'm going to do after I get offline :)

I love those ornaments! Those are precious. I might have to order some after this Christmas so I can give them as gifts for the worship team next year. Those are just so cute!

Sorry blogger ate your post. I thought it ate mine and then I went and pushed the post button again and it came up...this was two days ago. So, it might still be there! LOL!

Lots of Love!

Adorable ornaments! You do a great job! How much are you charging??? I like the one with the 3 little snowmen. We got a big wooden plaque like that at the sauerkraut festival this year and had our names put on it. A matching ornament would be cute...

You niece is getting so big! That's so nice that she and Princess can play together!
