Caution – Work in Progress!

Hello, Stampin' Friends

Are you wondering what this title is all about?  I think there should be a sign up at my work area that reads "Caution – Work in Progress – Enter at Your Own Risk", and be surrounded by yellow caution tape, and bright orange cones!! LOL! 

Really, my work area looks like a tornado went through it – but, it's only me, frantically working to build up enough product for my craft fairs, and get ready for classes at the same time!  I'm sure I'll have to make more things after each craft fair (at least, I certainly hope so!), but I'd like to be well prepared; better to have too much, that not enough, right?

While it's hectic, it is a lot of fun, too 🙂  I enjoy the creative process, and seeing the final product all completed.

So, I thought I'd share with you some of my latest creations, as I've had lots of people asking what I'm up to – but you've been warned – I didn't 'pretty up' the area for these photos, I just cleared a spot so I could take the pictures!

Here's some Post-it Note Holders, complete with a little pen; and a legal pad folder, with it's matching pen (notice the designer paper inside the pen matches the folder?)

 

Here's some Christmas cards I did; inspired by a wonderful demo named Kay Kalthoff in the U.S.

 

These are 'Santa's Magic Key' – because how will Santa get into your house, if you have no chimney?!

Some repurposed Frappucino bottles, now holding yummy red & green Christmas mints.

And finally, these are the Stampin' Up! clear stamp cases, which I've made into note pad holders; you can see on the inside that there's a legal note pad with matching pen, plus a little pocket on the side, for slipping those important notes or receipts!

 

I hope you've enjoyed having a peek at my 'workshop'!  I'd love to hear what you like best – and any suggestions for what you'd like to see on my craft fair table.

Until next time – Happy Stamping!

    Hi Deb, I have been away so need to catch up on your blog! What a great post today…love the Santa keys! I couldn’t read the poem (?) but I can imagine what it says and think it’s such a cute idea! You did a great job on all the projects and I just know everything is so cute and handy that the items will fly off the table at your craft fair!

      Aren’t the keys such a cute idea? (I wish I could take credit for thinking it up!) Yup, it’s a little late for my boys, but I’m hoping lots of other people will like them, too.
      Thanks for stopping by & leaving a comment, Catherine!
