NOVEMBER HAS ARRIVED

Only 10 more days until the Old Fashioned Christmas Craft Show


Well, it's official, November has arrived and like many of you I'm preparing for the next big event, the online Christmas craft show that's scheduled for November 11-13th.

Here's are a few of the pieces that I'll have in my "stall".



We've started calling these my "Dot Eye" Santa Gang. Each is a OOAK figure that has been sculpted by me.



This is a series of 12 figures including Mrs. Claus who wearing oven mitts and holding a tray of gingerbread cookies is really popular with the rest of the gang.



The seated Santa in his workshop is one of my larger and pricier pieces.



This is the Snow Maiden and her grandfather Ded Moroz, two Russian symbols of the gift bringers. I will be offering a special deal if purchased together.



The Nossie, sounds like Mossy, are my own creations and I'll be offering two of them for sale.



Most of my Santa figures are carrying a bag of toys on their back. I've tried to keep all things in balance by featuring an equal number of bears, dolls, dogs etc. This bag ended up all dolls because I'd let things get unbalanced.



Some of the figures have patterns on their cloaks or on their bag like the paisley bag here. The only thing they have in common is every one of them is unique.

I may not have time to post again for the next week as I have quite a bit of work to be done as Christmas is coming and it's my busy time of the year.

As always, I want to say thanks for stopping by.

Hi Miss Maddyrose,

Such a wonderful variety for your show. Will Bellamine & Wendy be working at your stall?

Mom is thinking that it might be a good idea for me to work at hers. It will give me a chance to meet our visitors. This is gonna be so much fun!

Hi Bellamine and Wendy,
Yes! Yes, you should work on your Mon's stall. I certainly work on Granny's stall. I meet lots of nice people that even give me pressies.
You need to keep all those lovely Santa'a in order.
Hugs

Hope you sell all your goodies and that you have a wonderful time doing the sale.
Kinda miss doing that sometimes and then I regain my senses and remember how that is not for me.
Best of Luck, Oma Linda

Hi Bellamine & Wendy,

I have an idea....(light bulb going on) we can visit each other at the show. I'll come over and help you so your Mom can drop over and visit my Mom. Then we will send them both to your stall and we will help at mine.

Sound like a plan? Boy, we LOVE your Santa's & Snow Lady so much.

I think having your "sneak preview" is a great idea.

Heaps of Hugs

How fun to see so many of them together! Hope you have a lot of sales, although I know it will be tough to part with them.

Oh Miss Maddy Rose, with them all together they look like a shelf display at a high end specialty shop. I wish I had the means to make a purchase or twenty! Hugs to you, my talented friend.
