In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Ornament Extravaganza was fun!

Ornament Extravaganza was fun. I wish I could have stayed all day, but I had a wedding to attend. What is it with people planning retirement parties and weddings during holiday time? Anyway, I took Birgit's (Mausies craft journey blog) advice and made the ornaments bigger. When I left at 2:00, I had sold seven kits. I only made ten. And Queen, where were you? Seriously, you need to come hang out with us Granny'd make so many new crafty friends and be so busy learning new stuff you wouldn't even care about the "Christmas Rant" situation!

Also, want to let those of you know that the wool trees and the owls patterns came from a book I posted awhile back called Fa la la la Felt.

My cousin Vickie, painting a Christmas stocking ornament.

Serious candy cane making going on.

This is THE Granny Bee...always smiling!

Ornament kits for sale.

This is not my project, or my nails!, but I did learn to rug hook that day. I bought a little hook and I'm going to practice on ornaments first. It's the best way to learn to do something new. And you get the project finished!

A good time was had by all.
PS. Birgit, you really don't need to tell us that the temperature is going to be in the 70's where you live, ok? Especially on a day like today, when we have schools closed or delayed, the temp is in the teens, and we have lots of snow and ice.'s Christmas!
