New Christmas Cards for the Show

I always love to make new original Christmas cards each year. I tend to make some mid year and then again in December, usually after our Open Doors show. This year I took the time to do two different kinds using handmade painted papers and backgrounds. These are more sophisticated than usual.

New Danglies for the Open Doors Show

I am very excited about my Danglies this year. I did three new ones. There are two birds and beaded balls made from recycled fibers. Both birds are rather primitive but unique. One bird was done using an old sweater I probably bought when I was 27. It was handwoven in South America. I was saving it for something special and this seemed fitting. Very colorful and ethnic, but pretty. The other two danglies are made from a Coogie Australian mercerized cotton sweater. They are very special and made the danglies quite interesting and unique. I will use these again sometime!

I also made felted pins and made them into a danglie. You can take the tassel off and voila! there is a little pin you can wear. The threadspool and cork danglies are always fun.

See you at the show!
