Jewelry pouch bags, they make great gifts!!!

Howdy! I hope everyone is doing great. I've been busy as a one armed man in a fighting match! I had my part time work (Soma intimates) Christmas party on Sunday. So not having a full time job, I had to think of something to do with out spending much money. We could only spend $10. Well that was easy. so I went to TJ Maxx, got a really cute jewelry dish, ($3.99) So then I had a plan to make a jewelry pouch. I found the pattern online. so I made one. When Kellye opened up her gift from me, everyone really liked what I had made. Then they insisted that I make more of them so Diane could sell them at her jewelry shows. She said make some by Wednesday of this week and I'll see if I can sell some for you. So between working part time ( more hours because our stock person is gone) and trying to find a full time job, then having to make some of these bags. Well I did it! They turned out great. I took them to Diane today for her jewelry party tonight. Guess I'll find out how I did on Thursday.

All my jewelry pouch's. I was only able to make 9 of them. It was alot of work, but I did it. Whoo Hoo!!!

My Santa with his sleigh of toys. Painted by me. Another treasured thing. The class I took way back when was taught by Jackie Spell. She's a wonderful decorative artist and teacher.

My little tree. I've had this tree for years. Thought I would put it up again this year to save money. (instead of going and buying a real tree). After I look at this picture, it seems as though there is alot of ornaments on it, but there really isn't. One of my treasured Christmas thing is the elves climbing up the ladder. (see them at the bottom right) Sorry the picture isn't really good. Most things are hand crafted. Some painted by me.
