Oh for heavens sake, I don’t have a sponsor. Who would sponsor me – and for what? I’m not an athlete and I’m not in AA either as I rarely drink anything stronger than a latte. Hmm, now I could be a member of CC (Coffee Cravers). I don’t think there is one but let me think about organizing the first chapter – would you join? Should we taper off or just quit cold turkey? Shudder. Let’s just taper off. Oh wait. I don’t think I want to do that either. I’ll think about the whole thing and get back to you. In the meantime, why don’t you start without me?
Really, I don’t have a sponsor. But I do have an advertisement. This is kind of a new thing for me – well actually I did it once before. It was the same thing really, only different. I’m talking about what I “lovingly” call “Crap I’ve Made”. Since that seems to have a negative connotation, I’ll just say that I will have some of the things I’ve made from wood at a craft (not crap) show. It will be this upcoming Saturday, October 12th from 9:00 to 2:00 at the Breckenridge Senior Citizens Center. I really don’t know what to expect as to what other things will be offered from other “artists” such as myself. teehee. But I will have 2 partners in this crime. My sister-in-law, aka, Jean, aka Gracie’s Closet will have all manner of clothes and accessories that fit an American Girl doll or one of a similar size. Jean has also knit poncho’s and caps for Gracie as well as quite a variety of things for your bitty baby. Check this out:
My other partner, aka Jolene, aka Take Two Mittens has wonderful (can you guess?) mittens!!!! But no, these are not ordinary mittens. Jolene has used old sweaters which she then felts and combines with other pieces of wool to make the best pair of mittens you have ever had. Ever. Here are a couple of her mittens:
And then there’s me. Not much to say there so I’ll just run a bunch of pictures. I just wish I could sell bags of sawdust. I’d make a killing!
This is my version of Santa’s sleigh which is shown all decorated up – because this one is mine. When you buy a sleigh you can decorate it any way you choose.
These next pictures are all trays (or boxes) with slanted sides. I have 2 sizes, 12 1/2” or 10”. These are just a couple ideas to get you thinking about the possibilities.
These next 2 are the smaller trays:
This one is called a candle box which would traditionally hold – you guessed it – candles. But what if you put a hand-stitched pumpkin on the front and filled it with fall colors? Even tho I made several of these, I’ve got to warn you, this is the only one that is decorated.
Now think about when you are in the kitchen trying to come up with a good recipe for supper. And there are a zillion recipes to be found on your iPad. They (iPads) are not cheap little items so you hate to slap it on the counter while you’re slicing and dicing. What if you had a breadboard that would stand up and hold your iPad? Something like this:
It even works for your e-readers and the good old-fashioned paper cookbook.
There are 3 sizes of these risers. They are used for decorating – sort of like the ideas I’ve shown below.
These are colonial style soap holders, which as you can see don’t necessarily have to hold soap. Whatever.
It was at this point that I got tired of taking pictures. I want you to know that I have even more
CrapCrafts to show on Saturday. I have a bad feeling that this commercial message has gone way over 30 seconds. I guess you’ll have to just put it on my bill and hope I’m good for it.
See you Saturday,
