Things in My House Thursday V

I'm a little behind in my blog updates...I take pictures...I have ideas...but...busy...busy...busy! So...Things in My House...we recently bought some furniture for the family room. It was always such a hodge podge of stuff, so after the spring when everyone had water in their lower levels, we decided not to put everything back downstairs. We bought a new computer desk and bookshelves...and it won't be long before they are all filled!


What'cha Workin' On Wednesday

What have I been working on Wednesday...Thursday...Friday...we are getting ready for our Winterfest Arts Festival. I am making some Santas. I love this beard fabric! Tonight...I'm stuffing their arms and stitching them together...
Also...making another batch of tins. This is how they start out. Several people save food cans for me. I strip the labels and wash them thoroughly. This is the first layer of paint...it's a spray paint primer. It has to be a really nice day, because I set up in the garage, with the doors open and spray several cans at once...

Oh, I love your Santas. Are you going to sell any of them in your Etsy shop? I have a collection of Santas.
