Some of What I've Been Up To

I am in Val's monthly Year of Enchantment Ornament Swap and September's swap was mice. Here are the mice I made for my partner.
I even stamped a little bag with a leaf and then colored it in with marker and outlined it with glitter glue. I am NOT a stamper so I was particularly proud of this little project!

October's swap theme was Owl's. So I made up some felt owl ornaments, an owl hot pad, and some different paper owls. I had to stick some Tootsie Pops in because of the old commercial
"How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll Center of a Tootsie Pop?"

Then I made 154 Christmas Stockings for my mom.
This is only part of them.
The place my mom works at are going to have kids paint and decorate the stockings.

I've been working on a couple of other big projects,
they're for Christmas gifts and so I can't post them yet.

Well, I'm off to do some more Christmas stuff!
Have a wonderful day!

Wow you are busy. I popped over to invite you for tea in my corner of blogland. I've changed how I post my crafts and thought I would invite you to join the party. Have a great time with the Christmas crafts. I'm working on that too these days. I'm going to do my first Christmas craft fair this year..yikes! Lisa

Hi Sherry, I love your owl goodies you made. And you have been very busy with stockings for kids. They will be so happy to be able to paint them themselves.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
