Holiday Shopping Night: Nov 8th in Wakefield, MA

A few of you have asked what fairs I will be doing this year. I’m actually only participating in one….just too much going on and I’m trying to prioritize and spend as much time with family as I can around the Holidays.

That being said, I will have a table again this year at the very wonderful Holiday Shopping Night – held at Dolbeare Elementary in Wakefield, MA. This event is GREAT and there are so many awesome vendors there. Please, if you’re local to me, I would LOVE to see you there! Come by and be sure to introduce yourself…!! My Mom and I will be there – she is always my #1 helper 🙂

Details: Thursday, Nov 8th 6pm-9pm

340 Lowell Street Wakefield, MA

Pretty much everything you’ve seen me recently post on my blog will be available for purchase. Hope to see some of you there!! 🙂

Craft Fair Goodies & Video: Halloween Cider Pockets

I have MORE Halloween goodness from the Imaginisce Monster Mash collection for you today! This time I decided to use some old envelopes that I had lying around for another purpose: Apple Cider Holders! These are a great alternative to giving out candy on Halloween. They could easily be modified to a theme for Autumn, Thanksgiving, or even Christmas.  They would make a great favor for your table during the Holidays, don’t you think?

Here’s another example of a pair that I made with more of an Autumn theme (using those same stickers from Imaginisce)

I have a full list of supplies for this project over on A Cherry on Top. You can also view my video below to see how I assembled these. Click here to watch on YouTube.

Thanks for watching, please let me know if you have any questions. I love that this project makes use of OLD stuff that I have lying around (I’m not sure about you but I have lots of envelopes that need to be put to use!) I have seen other things with envelopes too, like gift card holders. Perhaps I will tackle that one in another tutorial for you, if you guys are interested? Have a great day!

Craft Fair Goodies & Video: Halloween M&M Holders

Well, it’s that time of year again…time to get ready for Craft Fairs! Although I am not currently committed to any fairs this year, I will still be making fun stuff! I might sell some stuff here on the blog…or will use them for Brooke’s friends & daycare teachers. Last year I decided to take a break from doing a ton of fairs so that I could enjoy the Fall and Holiday season with my family. I still do a Holiday Shopping Night event at a local elementary school in November, so if you’re in the MA area – definitely look out for that – I will most likely be there!

The good people over at A Cherry on Top wanted to send me some Halloween stuff to play with. I picked this super cute Monster Mash Halloween line from Imaginisce – I just love all the cute characters in this line! Here are some M&M Holders that I pulled together using the die cuts in this collection.

Here are some more individual photos for you to check out. I also have a VIDEO to show you how I put these together, so be sure to scroll down! 🙂

Here’s my video tutorial for making these. For more information on where to by supplies, check out A Cherry On Top. Thanks!!

Craft Fair Goodies: Magic Reindeer Food

I have made Reindeer Food for a few years now. This year I stumbled upon this wonderful (and FREE) downloadable template from Whimsie Doodles. I got the link to this template from this blog post from FantastInk – I LOVE her version of these!

To start, I printed these labels using my color printer. The best part is that they are sized to fit a 1 3/4″ circle punch perfectly (even easier!). I nested with a 2″ circle and tied the labels to these mini bags full of oatmeal & colored Christmas sprinkles. I printed the poem on mailing labels & adhered them to the bags.

These are so easy – anyone can make ’em – I promise! Definitely give these a try this season if you can…

FYI: the font used on my poem is called “Kirsten ITC” 🙂
