Better Late then Never

Yesterday was Watcha Working on Wednesday and due to workin' I didn't get a chance to post. Normally I write them the day before and schedule them, but I was busy on Tuesday and didn't get the chance. I was busy working on Christmas items for the stores I wholesale too. I am trying to get done what they for sure want then I get to work on my one of a kinds. LOVE doing one of a kind work more than repeating the same stuff over and over. I am going to work at my friend Kim's shop today so I wanted to get some of her things done to give to her since her Christmas Open House is Nov. 7 & 8. I have put a lot of pressure on myself to get them done.

First up I showed you my snowman ornies last week, but they are now done all 12 big ones and 12 small ones.






I finished up all 12 of my Gingerbread men. I did these last year, but the one shop asked me to them again this year because they did so well. The red is not that red it is really a lot more grubby.



I also made up this little picture with the Night before Christmas poem. It is very hard to see in the picture but it looks awesome.




And now what I'm still working on because I didn't get them finished is twelve of my little crocks. I need to re stain and grubby but you get the idea. I also need to decide how to finish them. What to put in them... I'm thinking cinnamon sticks with little candy canes attached and greenery. But who knows. LOL. Then how I'm going to hang them because the shop wants them as tree ornies. Are you thinking rusty wire like me? Just curious.



All in all not bad for doing it all on Tuesday. I still have a lot to do, but once the beginning of November rolls around things will slow down for me.

I know what you mean about not liking to make the same thing. I'm like that too. The minute it becomes mass production I loose interest. I prefer one of a kind.

I don't like making the same stuff over and over either. I don't even like doing the same type of craft too many days in a row...can ya tell? LOL

Everything looks great. You've been busy :) Good luck with the rest of your goodies :)

Have a great day!
