Thanks Ladies!

Hi there, and happy Monday to you! Well the weather was perfect and the Encinitas Street Fair was so much fun yesterday. I'm very thankful to all of the lovely ladies who came out and made my day so special. A big thanks goes out to Bev, Karen, and Judy who are such loyal clients. I appreciate you so much! XOXO
I decked out my dress form with white wings, and thought she looked festive for the holidays. (and no she's not supposed to be a victoria secret model...I heard that a few times! ;) Here's the link where I bought them online. The street fair was a great success, and I had great fun people watching, and even dog watching. I need to start taking pics of some of the dogs I see, like 3 Great Danes with hats on. :) I'm going to go back to my weekly Palm Springs street fair Dec 3rd where a guy brings his wolf! I need to get a picture of that too. Anyway, as Thanksgiving approaches, I wanted to share what I'm thankful for: family/friends, making stuff with my hands, living in California, going through struggles to help me appreciate everything, knowing each day is a gift from God.

What are you most thankful for?
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Take care,

Meet me by the Beach Tomorrow!

Thanks for dropping by. Just wanted to let you know I'll be at the Encinitas Street Faire tomorrow, Sunday Nov. 22 from 9-4. Find me at booth #947 across from the "Rustic Rooster" boutique. A fun time to continue (or if you're like me just start) your Christmas shopping. I'll be bringing some new ornaments just in time. The sun will be out and it's sure to be a great day. For more info, pop on over to this link.
Hope you can make it!
Take care,

Ornaments & Crowns

Welcome! I've been a busy Betty filling orders, and I'm sure as the holidays approach you have been too. I was fortunate enough to take a class from Sally Jean last week. She finally offered one close to where I live, in San Diego. It was great fun, and we made Christmas ornaments. Some shaped as stockings, others beveled, and house shaped like the ones I made above. Over the years, I've made fewer and fewer large ornaments, and have made them teeny tiny, so it was fun to make some big ones. for a change.
I love this verse "do not forget to welcome strangers. By doing that some people have welcomed angels without knowing it." I dusted the bee, flower and bird with crystal clear glitter.
My friend Rosemary was kind enough to make this teeny weeny crown for my wooden sandpiper. I think she looks gorgeous in it!
The crown is only about an inch in diameter, and made with delicate seam binding, and a tiny rhinestone. I just love how it came out. Perfect color for a sandpiper, don't you think? Thank you Rosemary!
Thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for all the fun I have creating, and the amazing and wonderful ladies I've been blessed to meet along the way!
Take care,
