Christmas spectacular!

This, my friends, is the busiest week of my year.  I am participating in a 3-day craft show at FBC Georgetown, the aptly named Christmas Spectacular!  This isn't just any little craft show, no siree.  Georgetown, in spite of being more or less a suburb of Austin, still really has a small-town feel.  And the whole small town seems to turn out for this shindig!  70 vendors, last I heard...

I'm sooooo not ready, but who cares.  I didn't even know if I would participate this year, because of things with my dad.  But after he passed, I knew that some very serious craft therapy would be good for me, so I jumped right in.  It wasn't enough time to do all that I would have liked to do for the show, but it was healing to be creative.

And I know my daddy would be proud of me for that.

The etsy shop will be on vacation during the show.  After it's all done, keep your eyes peeled for another original pattern, this time a knitting one...

If you're local, come by the show!  It's this Thursday through Saturday, 9-5 on Th and Fr, 9-3 on Sat.  Highway 29 in Georgetown, just west of I-35 and Wolf Ranch shopping center.  Seriously, this is an amazing show, and it benefits the preschool there at FBC.  I'll be in the foyer!

Yay!  I've had a lot of fun with this!

Our family tradition includes an Advent calendar, and I've had trouble finding one I really like. My last one was cute, but the pockets were so small that you couldn't put anything more than a mint in each one.  And since I have a kid that's allergic to food coloring, we don't do a lot of candy.

And these flag banners (I hear some people call them buntings) are everywhere this year...and soooooo cute...and this Moda Fruitcake fabric matches my house so well...you can see how this developed.

The family likes it so much that even though I just put up the greenery and lights to take the pictures, they want me to leave it up.

Who am I to argue with that? ;)

Pattern is now for sale in the shop.
