I can not believe that it is December already! It is definitely time to be making a list of what needs to get accomplished over the next few weeks.
My MIL asked me if she could sell some of my things at a luncheon she was attending. She did this last year for the first time and she did well clearing out some things I had left from a craft show. I didn't do a show this year so it meant I had to work a bit harder to fill up a basket for her. List pads always seem to be the thing that sell out for me and since they are quick I made sure to do a stack. Here are two designs I made...
The pads start out as junior legal pads that I had cut in half at an office supply store. There isn't much room to decorate, a small piece of patterned paper and an embellishment about does it. I love the new Modern Homemaker papers by October Afternoon and the retro kitchen gadget design seemed a natural choice for those refrigerator list pads. The oven mitt is part of a Sizzix die I have with an apron, it was the perfect size for the top. I covered some chipboard with paper, cut them out and added a bit of Antique Linen Distress ink to the edges.
I had a bunch of the smaller felt flowers from SU left over from a class I did, they came together even faster. There are magnetic strips along the back.
I hope what I put together sells well, a little bit of extra pocket money wouldn't hurt!
I have the most adorable set of cards to show you...if I can find enough day light to take a photo. Nothing but grey skies and rain around our parts. Driving to work in the dark is the pits but driving home in the dark is just plain depressing.
