make time to make.

Somewhere between last year's winter shows and this year's summer shows I managed to lose my banner. It was simple but functional and I liked it. But it's gone. I have been thinking about what I would like for a new banner and shopping around a little considering having one made. But of course now it's late November and I have 2 upcoming shows. I would rather not have NO banner for my show this weekend. So the kids helped me whip up a new, simple banner yesterday.

It turned out lovely. Lars helped me cut the pieces. It was the most mellow thing we did all weekend.

I've been having fun finding pretty images to fill these huge, pretty bezels with. I am hoping to have a few pendants for necklaces ready and listed in my etsy shop soon but also decided to use some of the bezels to make Christmas ornaments. I finished this set last night. The images are from a 1970s childrens' magazine. So perfect for the holidays!

It's a lovely day in Wisconsin. I have a lot of busywork and things around the house to accomplish this morning but I am determined to enjoy the weather outside with the kids this afternoon. Hope you can, too! Have a great weekend!
