Winter Wonderful!

It has been loads of fun to create fun Christmas and Winter themed items for my little Etsy shop. My peppermint candy buttons have been a top seller, as well as the ity bitty holiday colored buttons. I think I make a new set for someone pretty much every other day. ha!

One customer ordered a large quantity of the peppermint buttons to use on holiday sweaters. It's fun how I intended their use for scrapbooking, but many other uses have been found. Because of this, I spent a good month testing different types of sealant and what could hold up with washing. I finally found one I am confident with.

I have a lot of red, green and gold tones in my first Christmas collection, and I love the other tons of the holidays of silver, navy and red. So, I spent this weekend creating a new collection of winter embellishments and buttons titled, "WINTER WONDERFUL." I have made up new sets to include embellishments AND buttons that I call, "Trinkets and buttons." You get a little bit of each thing to make a great winter-time project. The snowflakes are lightly dusted with a opulescent glitter. So pretty.


































Last year, I felt bad that I didn't send out Christmas cards. I was really busy with CHA coming up and getting work to manufactures that I didn't give myself enough time to create any special cards for loved ones. I got started last week and just have a few more to do and I'm done. Here is what I've created so far.














That's it for today! I hope everyone has a great week!
Off to get ready to go to work at the LSS and today is a weigh-in day. I'm down 10lbs in 18 days........yes, I'll fill you all in next post about this! So exciting that it's working :D

Enjoy your day!
