Some oldie oldies...

I have SO many pictures that I never got posted to ye olde blogeroni. I guess that I should be thankful that I actually remembered to take pictures Eh?

So, back in December I attended a craft show with a friend of mine at her work. It was a hand made show that was specifically for the employees to sell their wares OR for friends of employees to bring their stuff and help fill the table. Grin..

This was the first time I'd ever sold handmade stuff at a show, it's always been Homemade Gourmet so I wasn't sure what to expect. Also, I wasn't feeling too hot so I had fewer items than I would have liked. First up is Santa!! I made him by cutting out a boat load of Top Note dies in various colors and embossing them for a little texture.

Then I stuck a giant candy cane through the top of his head.

Next I had some frappuchino bottles that I filled with homemade hot chocolate. I'll be honest, I don't care for the cold coffee in the bottle so I bought a package on sale and dumped the drink. They were $4 so I figured that a $1 a bottle wasn't too bad. I used a cute cocoa stamp from 2 scoops of rice I love food with faces..

Next I had a few nugget tins left over that I Christmased up. I bought the felt flowers off Etsy from CarefreeGlimmer Aren't they cute??!!

Then I made some smaller cocoa cups.

And lastly I decorated some of the Target mailboxes I had left over from last year.

I filled them with a few Lindt truffles I picked up at the outlet mall. They were the first thing I sold out of.

I also had some chocolate dreidels that I didn't get a picture of... All in all it was a pretty successful day. I ended with more $ that I came with and my box was a lot lighter when I left. Pretty cool if you ask me.:)
Alright, off to make another post!
