    I am laughing .. I was so focused on SENDING mine I forgot we get an ornament in return. i havent received one yet nor obviously am I worried about it. The big fun is in the excitement of sharing I guess. of course not knocking the receiving part at all. It appears one is a winner here no matter what! Jaba love your deer I had not realized the size shoot you WORKED HARD.. and the santa pants OMG how cute .. Anastasia no barfing rainbows. Sheesh. and no stealing the under drawers from Santa either. Great idea those drawers.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    You guys have really got me into the mood to put up a tree now. I may have to put up a BIG one just so I can make ALL NEW ornaments for it. Can't decide which I like most. Those Santa drawers are just adorable. And....and....

    Good morning!

    So sorry I have been MIA. Have been under the weather with an upper respitory infection. I have not been in the sewing corner for an entire week! Last night I decided to put my first idea of the Sun Bonnets away for now since being in bed has me behind and don't think that I would have enough time to get them finished. So, I was working on a paper craft and decided to share them with this group as well. I hope my swap sisters enjoy them.

    I am now caught up on the thread. So sorry for you loss. Hope all of the sick are on the mend. Happy birthday!!

    Have a wonderful day

    Thank you! I like to do just about any kind of craft project. Got started on the Christmas cards first and wanted to get them completed before starting on anything else. That can be overwelling. I tell myself I want to get so many of them done each month, but I just don't do it. Maybe this up coming year I will do it; just have to set my mind to it!

    Tracey - Do you sell your Christmas cards? I just made 50 of them to sell at my first craft show this December and don't know what is the going prices at craft shows? I read on the internet they go anywhere from $2.50-$5.00 depending on the detail and size of the card. My cards measure 5x7 and have detail (bling, ribbon, stamping, etc). Anyone with any suggestions would be appreciated. Never made cards before, I was a little stumped with ideas at first but once I got started I was on a roll....lol I think they came out pretty cute.

    I used to sell my cards on etsy.com but it has been a while. The way I did pricing was to determine how much money I spent on supplies and doubled that for my labor. So if I spent $25 (x2) = $50. I made 8 cards then divided the $50 it cost me by the 8 cards. I would at least charge $6.25 per card before shipping or tax if applicable. Hope that helps. Good luck with your booth.

    The Santa's, were a kit I purchased at a Bismarck ND Quilt shop for $15.00. They came in a Espresso cup.
    http://store.happyhollowdesigns.com/ - They have christmas and halloween kits. Loads of cute stuff. I purchased the light bulbs, bells and nose buttons at Hobby Lobby. I tole paint, so I did the noses in Gooseberry pink with a stippling brush. The little black buttons I have purchased at both Walmart, Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's. The fuse grid facing you can find in any quilt/craft shop.

    If any of you are out and about, I am looking for the 4" paperclip for the ice skates that is one of their kits. Will pay shipping and cost plus a gift. I've done indepth research online (office depot, office max and staples). Did a question Online and need to check Dollar Stores, we only have one small one here in Dickinson, ND. I was in Bismarck this past Saturday and checked Hobby Lobby, Hancocks and JoAnns and two of the office supplies listed above. The two office supplies had gold and vinyl covered, no silver. My next step is to purchase a "gauged" wire and make my own.

    The folded ornament came from http://katrinastutorials.blogspot.com posted /September 22, 2009. She had 2 that I printed off. The other has a triangle shape.

    Darling ornament. Did you design your own pattern?

    Robinlee, thanks for the tutorial, I love those! I was thinking you could make them any size as long as you followed the instructions! I am going to put a tree in my sewing room I don't know where, lol! But a cute little one would be fun!

    I sent thank you's to the wrong person! Twice... So please if you sent me the lovely Ornaments can you let me know what your board name is! I have tried a few combinations of QuilterMary Quilter Mary and well I can't find you!

    OK Duh, foggy brain just came up with a plan, ask Brenda!
