Covered in glitter

Everything in my workroom is covered in glitter whether or not I want it to be, including myself.  But it's all for a good cause.  I've been hard at work creating little sparkly goodies for the upcoming holiday craft sales.  That's why I haven't posted much lately, so please forgive me.  I hope this sneak peek at what my little fingers have been busy crafting will make up for it!

Miniature winter vignettes

Background in a Box

Miniature Fairie Abodes

Holiday Assemblage

3-D Ornaments

Decorated German Nut Baskets

Handwoven Nests
Many of the items were sculpted with spun cotton, my new favorite material, along with imported German elements, vintage findings, train miniatures and LOTS of sparkles.  Almost everything is tiny, and the items were challenging and fun to make.

The first sale is this weekend at King's Books in Tacoma - the Tacoma Is For Lovers holiday craft sale, Saturday and Sunday 11-4 both days.  You can find more info here on their website.  This is my favorite TIFL sale (they're usually twice a year), because the vendors really go all out with their top notch creations.  It's some of the best of what Tacoma has to offer as far as handmade goes.

The other event where I'll be showcasing is Glitter Haus, a very fancy invite-only open house in Tacoma on Saturday, December 1st from 11-3 PM.  Check out www.glitterhausholiday.com to see what it's all about and to get on the guest list - you won't want to miss it!
