At least THIS project.  Packing them away for my fall shows, except for.....

This guy!  He's bigger, and special, and I think he's going on Etsy and Square Marketplace.  Found the shaker in a cabinet in an antique shop in Gastonia, North Carolina.  His "hat" is silver, and is a little holey...which makes it even more unique!  He stands almost 6" tall.  
Off to work on something else, or maybe make my lunch for work tomorrow.  Decisions, decisions!

Working like a mad woman!

I'm TRYING so hard to get going on projects.  It's hard, when you work full time at a "normal" job.  Here's the mess (I know, not as messy as others, but messy for me!) that is my workspace right now:

More "Frosty" the canned snowman is process.  Got all the labels on and based coated the glass for black paint next.
I've had over a dozen salt shaker snowmen in varying degrees of completeness hanging out on my work tables for WEEKS!. They are GOING to get done today, if it kills me!
 Two done....how many to go????
I'm getting there!  All snowmen have had their heads painted or sculpted and have been drying overnight.  Now to age, add vintage buttons, scarves, and attach their "hats"....easy peasy, right?

I even got another OOAK project started last night...the snowmen in the cupcake tin.  I have an idea.  We'll see how it turns out.  Stay tuned!

Starting over, again!

Back to blogger.  I was on here briefly through one of my Etsy teams Folkart and Primitives.  Our team leader, Brenda Griffith, was kind enough to set up blogs linked to the team blog.  It was a LOT of work.  It ended up being too much work and many of us turned out to be rotten/lazy bloggers, me included.  So, the team linked blogs ended.  Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when my hubby set a blog up for me through Weebly.  It was mighty kind of him to do so, and I did a few blog posts through Weebly.  Fast forward AGAIN to today, where I realized Weebly wasn't going to allow me to easily have followers.  Hmmmmmm.  So, looked back into Blogger, and realized I had started a blog of my own, but never published it.  So, here we go again!  Let's see how it goes from here!

Happy Saturday!
