Cork Ornaments

Are you ready for Christmas?  I'm always ready.  I just love the way everything looks and feels with all the Christmas decorations out and displayed.

I have been making cork ornaments for several years now, but for some reason, I've never shared them.  It's one of my favorite gifts to give around the holidays when you need something small.

I have candy canes, trees and wreaths.


The trees are definitely my favorite.




I will be selling my ornaments at the Lodi Street Faire on October 5.

Halloween Book Wreath

Another project done for the Lodi Street Faire.  It's getting close now, just two weeks away!

I love my fall book wreath, so I decided to change it up a bit and add a little something for Halloween.


The edges are inked just slightly with black ink and the spiders are glued on top with hot glue.


My girls love it because the spiders are creepy, but not too creepy because they are "girly glitter spiders."

Mason Jar Succulents

Three weeks to go before the Lodi Street Faire and I'm finally starting to cross things off my list.  This weekend I got all my mason jars painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, sanded and the succulents planted.  I love the way the turned out!



Here's to hoping I don't kill them before October 5!

Craft Booth

The Lodi Street Fair is one month away.  I swear, my to do list is getting longer instead of shorter like I had hoped.  

But, I did get a big item checked off the list this weekend.  I was able to do a practice set up.  I was able to see what I wanted to make more of, what I have plenty of, etc.  There are still a few things I need to get, like an extra table cloth and finished "walls" for the tent instead of a sheet, but I was surprised at how much I already had done.


I know a lot of people set up their tent on the day of the event without a test run, but that definitely would not have worked for me.  Even though it took an entire afternoon, it was definitely worth it.



I'm happy with the way everything turned out.  I especially love all the baby hats hanging on the side wall.  


What do you think?  Would you stop by and do some shopping?
