{winter crafting}

1) wooden gift tags, glittered and adorned 2) Winter Wonderland Wreath  3) Paper gift tags, ready for use 4) wreaths at a show 5) gift bags ready to use

While preparing for a few shows this holiday season, I was feeling very inspired and crafty.  I was inspired by Pinterest among other things to make this holiday season of shows special.  I was inspired to make yarn wrapped wreaths adorned by sweet little what-nots, glittered wooden gift tags, paper gift tags with washi tape and ready made gift bags, perfect for giving on the go.  I cannot take all the credit for all of the items above.  When back at home for the holidays, I had a table full of helpers, making these things with me. 

I was so happy with how everything turned out and even happier with the reaction of my customers.  All of my sweet wreaths sold, so sad because I was hoping I could keep at least one! and people responded well to the items that would help them give gifts more beautifully.  I hope to expand some of the gift items, and maybe even the wreaths in my etsy shop.  I leave the season of holiday shows refreshed and inspired to make more. 

Happy Holidays!
