All the making stuff has caught up with me. I had a class in the morning yesterday, 9 to 12. Then I spent the afternoon cataloging and pricing all the stuff I am putting in the Two Twelve Arts Holiday Sale. The sale is this Saturday, from 10 to 5, I think. Anyway, it took me all afternoon to tag the things that were ready for it. I have 18 felted purses, 20 quilted purses, 16 pins. Not yet tagged:14 collages, 6 necklaces, , 17 painted faces on pillows, and a few odds. And I’m going shopping for more stuff to finish a few things.

So far, there are 20 items for the Earth Challenge. I expect more Friday. This show is open to Bagettes, Cakeeaters, and Running With Scissors members. This will be a humdinger of a show. Be sure you are included. You people are very creative, and talented.
Give me your entry by Friday, along with a check for $15, and an item the size of a greeting card, for sale for Food Gatherers. Remember there are prizes, too.

The tags are made, the racks chosen, the boxes packed, and the car loaded. I am ready for the Running With Scissors Holiday Art Sale tomorrow. Come see us all at the K of C Hall in Berkley, on Twelve Mile Road. The show is open from 10 to 4.
The picture is stuff I have been making for this sale, and there is more.

I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving, and time to spend together with family and friends. Hopefully all the seasonal household preparations are done by now, and you can put your feet up for a while. Life is fleeting, memories last beyond your time.

This happy group at Two Twelve Arts, made Christmas stockings for Saline Social Services. It was the first gathering of the holiday. On December 5, come to the Holiday Art Sale at Two Twelve. Thirty artists will display a wide range of wonderful things for sale. And there will be free gift wrapping of your purchases. Do all your shopping, and let us wrap it up for you.

Give handmade gifts for the holidays!

Please join us for the first annual Running with Scissors Holiday Art Bazaar

I spent almost the whole day cleaning out my fabric stash. With the stuff I gave away yesterday, there are 9 bags of fabric. This allowed me to put the stuff that was in bags in the closet, and in the corner, on shelves. So, I have a pile of African wax resists, stripes, dots, ones I dyed myself, 2 piles of Kaffee Fassett prints, 2 drawers of batik scraps, a box of sparklies, a box of banner fabrics, and more, organized and ready to use.
And I put some of the felt away in big boxes. There is more to do. I have to find a place to store the roving, and another felt box. The room feels bigger. I have a backache.
