When you have dinner at my house
you have to share the dining area
with a whole bunch of craft projects.
I collect (hoard) vintage Christmas doo-dahs. In an attempt to do something constructive with them I make Kitchy Kristmas wreaths. I'm pretty sure they're still going to take me away and put me on that 'Hoarders' TV show though.
My friend Susan and I have a wonderful Christmas tradition. Almost every year, we share a pot of soup, crank the carols up and string vintage glass Christmas Garland beads. They're getting harder to find in the antique stores now so I pounce when I see them! They're like jewels! It's treasure hunting - especially exciting to find beads with unusual shapes.
