    Boy I wish I could have gotten one of each ornament! They are all great, and the variety is amazing. I read somewhere an idea for those spool ornaments. The suggestion was to make one after Christmas for each kid with a list of what they got for Christmas that year. I wish I had seen that idea before my son grew up!

    I have been so inspired by all of you. I hope to make a few more ornaments for this year and definately will start earlier for next year and include a small treat. Thanks.

    High end markets are the place to do your craft shows. You pay more for your booth/table but you will net more also. The day goes faster. I sold in a very wealthy neighborhood, a friend had a show in her home. We all put up signs, in key traffic areas, we all were to work a schedule of time say three hours each day of the show and we paid a percentage to her of all our sales. I made bank. Sounded expensive but it was worth it. The ladies came in, thought NOTHING of dropping money on things most of us would think twice over. they like a jam buy three cases for client gifts. not one item I sold was bargained with. I came home almost empty handed. so knowing your target market, knowing how much time will be put in getting it in the paper, internet, signage. all plays in to how much you reap. she also had only so many of each item being sold by differrent venders only two jam sales, only four tshirt sales, three earrings etc. so it was a very broad variety and worked. My last sale was not researched much by me, it was reasonable, seemed right. No advertising at all. none. signage three signs period. not a great traffic neighborhood at all. lousy sales. Sold like four pillows and one scarf. Not worth it at all. Good luck to those who still have shows. Sell your products dont wait for them to sell themselves, talk it up.. ok enough.

    I received an abundance of ornaments this day. I asked for ornaments for Seniors at this lower income senior home I had to stay in during recovery. lonely place. The donations from the Quilting Board members have been outstanding. Jaba, Nancia, Grann of 6, hobbykat, Mdall, tam moo Linda S. with her white snowflakes (eyes).. they will bring so many smiles. I took some photos tonight but the internt is not up for uploads. I will post them when its ready for that. I am sorry I did not get to the post office, I have to wait as I had surgery last thursday so no driving. I am itching to be moving again! thank you every single one of you who helped me get this together for the ladies and men there. You guys rock SMOOCH

    Not a problem Linda. I'm sure when all of these are on their Christmas tree or are hanging in their rooms it will bring a little smile to their face. Hopefully they will lift spirits and the holiday will be much nicer for them.

    Thank you, I wish I could take credit for it, but I found it on line a couple of years ago. The spools came from Hobby Lobby (four in a bag).
