The Bazaar

October 18, 2009

I spent a great deal of my free time lately working on goodies to send my grandmother for her church bazaar. Every year I make sure a batch of my crafts make it out to Riverside, CA for her to sell at her annual craft bazaar. This year I made 24 wood burned spoons, 18 pairs of earrings, and a cute candy corn hat.

The designs on the spoons are from clip art and some are orignal drawings. I’m most fond of the lizard and adobe spoons which I drew freehand. My mom also helped making a few of the spoons since she wanted to see how my wood burner that Grandma got me worked. It’s much faster than other wood burners I’ve used, but highly detailed designs still take a great deal of time. It’s the Walnut Hollow set that you can get here.

The earrings are all made in my usual charm style. Matching up which beads you want to use often takes much longer than actually doing the wire work necessary to create them.

As for this awesome little hat, I originally made it for myself, but it just wasn’t quite long enough to cover my ears so I figured it would be better off going to a kid who has a smaller head.

Hopefully, getting all this done means I can continue to attack my Halloween costumes full force.
