It's Beginning to Look A lot Like Christmas

Busy Hands part two

Well if you remember in this past post here , I was working on

a snow home for this cute little fellow.

I love crafts of all kinds.  I guess you have already guessed that.
I don't just sew and make quilts, I paint on fabric, make cute little snowman like this fellow.

He is now completed.
I started out with styrofoam balls and paperclay.
When he was dry I used my craft paints and gave him a character.

I also made a cute glitter home.

Painted a paper mache house blue, added some snow and then glitter.I used a Terrarium and added snow to the roof top.

I have a few more snowman in the works. Maybe an angel or two.

until next time,
Thank you for stopping by and leaving all those lovely comments. I read everyone.

Perfect for a Christmas Stocking!!
I found it in the reduced upholstery section.

It has been awhile since I sewed a stocking, so I went about and made my template and began cutting.
The stocking looked pretty bare so I added piping and a cuff.
Now there is a STOCKING!!
I filled it with plastic garbage bags, then proceeded to add a few toys.
Don't you  think it turned out GREAT!!
Here it is on my Front Door welcoming all my


Now that's not all as you can see I'm working on something special. Can you guess?? Also here in the craft room I have displayed a few pieces that I will be adding to it.
