Whoop Whoop a new craft for the new year

Well Christmas has come and gone and life is starting to settle down a little around here. I got a Janome sewing machine for Christmas and want to learn to make quilt tops. Yep another new craft, would love to know where to start if you have an idea for me.  This new machine is a dream to use and is my very first new machine, my other two are late 60’s early 70’s models…..boy have sewing machines come a long way. Lol Hope you all have a wonderful New Year.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas! I love to spend time with my family, seems I just can’t get enough of it. We stopped by one of my brothers houses on Christmas Eve and he gave us T-shirts for his new business Steelhorsearmory.com.  Well……… I just had to pull out some of our guns and take a few pictures for him.  We all went shooting on Christmas day and had a great time spending time with 2 of my brothers and their families.  So if anyone needs a new gun check out his site, he has just about anything you want. I bought hubby a .22 597 rifle with a scope for Christmas, it is such a fun little gun, poor guy didn’t get to shoot it much yesterday, I had it. lol

LaCueva Craft Show

We had a wonderful craft show this past weekend at La Cueva High School, had a huge turn out and almost doubled our sales from last year.  We have one more show this year and then we start restocking our inventory for next year.  I was sure I had fired enough bottles to last a few years but found myself having to fire 2 loads this week. lol
    
We are making journals this year and when I ran out of ideas I CASED my own cards. I found a few cards I really liked and made journals to match.

Shop is cleaned out

From this
To This!

All cleaned out so we can tear it down!!!! I know doesn’t make any sense but that’s the way it. It makes it a little easier to think the shop employees will have a nice place to work again soon.

Sandia Craft Show

The Sandia Craft show was a success, we sold a lot and I had a wonderful time hanging out with my friends.  The day flew by and I am looking forward to the next 2 shows.  Last year I was the only one selling the slumped bottles, this year there were 2 others.  I guess I should of expected at least that many they are very cool. lol
 


Kristen makes some really wonderful paper crafts and I kind of regret getting into the bottles, paper crafts were sooooooo much easier to load and unload. Thank goodness for my wonderful husband for all the heavy lifting.
I got this great stand for $20.00 at a Hallmark store that went out of business. It worked great and I could really get a lot of bottles on it.

1st carft show of 2011

First craft show of the season is tomorrow….. I can’t believe I am looking forward to getting up at 5am! I am never up before 7am and then it is a few cups of coffee before I get moving. lol  I will post pictures and how we did and what the big sellers were this year. I would love to know what the best sellers for you are. For the last 2 years I sold a bunch of the scrapbook purses, you can find the tutorial here. I sale them for $5.00 and I ran out both shows we did.  This year we are doing 3 shows Sandia High School 11/19, LaCueva High School 12/3 and Eisenhower Middle School 12/10. Would love to see you there.

I have ink on my fingers......

Really true ink!!!! It has been so long since I have been up in the craft room. But after the week I had I really needed to just sit and think of nothing but putting things together. I decided to work on some notebooks for the upcoming craft shows we will be doing this year. We were accepted into the LaCueva show again and did sooooo well at that one last year can't wait for this years. I had some cards that I made and really liked so thought I would turn them into notebooks something that would last longer than a card.




We are still not allowed into the shop at work, and the poor tech's and detail are working outside in the heat. I can't wait to get this all done but until the EPA says we can clean it up and tells us how we "have to clean it up" we are stuck waiting. This is what it looks like 2+ months after the fire.
 
 
This is what's left of a boat.

I miss my blog peeps

I miss you guys so much! I haven't had time to do any real crafting, I did make this cake and cupcakes for my nieces baby shower.

 But we are still dealing with the fire issues at work. So as nice as it was to have a day off to do this for one of my favorite nieces we always have to go back to this....

we are told it will take about a year to get everything up and running again but everyone still has a job so I am very happy about that.

So long

Just wanted to say so long for a while. I won't be posting anything new anytime soon. Our company has had a major fire and the clean up starts today. Thank you for all the comments and emails over the years I have had a blast meeting some really great people here. When we rebuild I will be back and ready to craft again until then I will check in on your blogs and wish you all the best.
Hugs

Last Fondant Class

Another month and another class done. I don't think I will do many fondant cakes, the family doesn't like to eat them, but they sure are pretty.  I will be starting another class next month (flowers and cake design). After that I will have to check into taking classes from CNM or a specialty shop. I really want to keep taking some kind of classes.

Graduation Cake

 
A graduation cake for my son's girlfriend. Not great but it is my very first time working with fondant. The top of the had should of been smaller but it was yummy anyway.

My last buttercream cake class

Had such a good time at this cake class I am going to take another one starting next week on fondant and gum paste. I have never liked cake with fondant on it but they sure look pretty. My family is really tired of buttercream too. They will never look at cake the same way again. lol  
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, we had a great day of church and family - It doesn't get any better than that. Thanks for all the good wishes and email's and yes I will be back to paper crafts very soon.lol We have our first craft show May 7th at LaCueva if you are in the area stop by and say hello.

Baby crib favor box

I am working on some ideas for my nieces baby show, I made this SCAL2 file. It needs a little work but for the most part I am happy with it. Thought they might be cute with some little candies in them. I have been dieting so anything with candy sounds good to me. Lol Like always if you want a copy of any of my files just leave a post or email me and I will get them right to you.
