I think I'll do one more show!!!

Oh I may be crazy, but I'm going to do one more show!!! But it's all so my family can have a nice Christmas without putting any extra stress on my Trucker!!  He is having so many problems with his truck and hasn't been working much so the money I make on these shows helps out.   It's not a big show, it's a Homemade Noodle and Bake sale at a local church that is very popular, and they recently added some vendor booths, so I didn't make anything new for it except more of these Snowman Stars. They are on an old rusty bed spring and at the last show I only had 3 and they were some of the first things gone.  So I made up 6 more, if they don't sell they will be great teacher gifts so no matter they will be part of someones Christmas!!  They aren't quite done in this picture, I added a bow to each one and then glittered them up.  They are pretty cute!!  I did wrap one of the springs but liked the unwrapped ones just as well, so I left them rusty!!

I also got my giveaway winners boxes in the mail, they went to Oregon, Nebraska and Pennsylvania, I hope Jan, Leslie and Amy enjoy their goodies.  And thanks to all of you great ladies that came back and congratulated the winners, you all are wonderful!!  
I have been trying to get things organized this week but haven't had much luck!!  Once I decided to do the show this Sat I have just left my boxes in the basement and not done much with them so I won't have to pack and re-pack again until after!! Hopefully with less to pack up again!! 
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.  Come back soon!!

Good luck at the show this weekend, Joleen.

Just noticed your maiden name is Northrup. I have a bunch of Northrups/Northrops in my family tree. Maybe we're related.
