…and there it was, gone.

Another Christmas crafting season over.  I’m a little bit sad as I always find Christmas crafts fire up my mojo and I don’t feel that way about other “holidays” or events.  However, it was a busy few months and I’m looking forward to more time “just for fun” in my craft room.

I spent the (wet, windy) early evening putting away all my Christmas stamps, papers and embellishments and clearing out a couple of things that I don’t want to hold on to any longer.  I have to do a better purge of the room later but I’ve put a dent in it so I’m happy with that – for now!

I did expand my craft offerings this year and that means that more craft materials had to find a home in the room.  I’m working with fabric, ceramic, and glass – mostly using heat transfer vinyl or sign vinyl – so I need space for those materials as well as the packaging I use (boxes, bags, tissue paper, bubble wrap).

I also got a new sewing machine this year and treated myself to a spool rack and some new scissors – I’ll be re-homing my old machine which is a basic Brother machine I bought at Woolco (yes, Woolco!) over 25 years ago.  It served me well with the limited amount of sewing I do.  I’m hoping the new machine will help me try new things (not clothes, just a few cute fabric crafts).

I didn’t get to share all the things I made this year but here are a few random pictures of some glasses and mugs I did the week before Christmas – you can also find “Handmade by Kellybee” on facebook if you want to connect there:

Made some glitter stem wine glasses this week – I can’t share them all as some are gifts for people who might read my blog but here’s a quick sample:

The “Aunt” glass has “BAE” on the other side of it.

The rest of the glasses turned out really cute.  I’ll try to remember to add pictures to this post after the Christmas season.

Check back tomorrow for customized mugs and hopefully, some Christmas tags.

Finally! A few cards

I managed to make some cards yesterday – only because I locked myself in my craft room for the whole day so I could catch up.

I still have about a dozen to make (some are for myself) as well as a couple of December birthday cards but I’m happy about the 16 I have done so far.  Here’s a sampling:

Must dash – have to make a “Congrats” card and don’t have a thought in my head re: layout.
