Getting My Sugarplum On

We had a holiday party/craft showing at my house last night. A small gang of my gal pals threw it - and the night was so much fun. We each invited all our friends, plied them with sweets and wine, and then sold them trinkets. So much laughter and cheer. Some people said it was the most fun they'd ever had gift shopping.

Besides pimping my usual glass jewelry and paintings. I had made some wool flower corsages (above) and some catnip mice (below) for the party. I have one lone flower left - every single one of the mice scampered out the door to be given to various pampered kitties.

Also I whipped up a handful of hats for kids made out of upcycled cashmere sweaters. 

And a flock of bird ornaments.

This was our second year doing the event - and there is no doubt in my mind that we must do it again in 2011.
Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by!

Of course the life size deer in my dining room was tricked out for the evening in some felt candy cane
and the rubber rat spent the night under glass.
