holiday open house & sale ::

i've been working hard to get ready for a little holiday open house & sale that i'm having {after being hounded by some of my friends who really though i should have one! i'm not so good at saying no, so i gave in and said yes. i am excited about it and looking forward to a fun weekend, but am a little anxious too}.

here are a few pictures to capture the craziness around here as i prepare ::

and you thought kitchens were for cooking ::

lots of etched glass jars just waiting to be filled with hot cocoa mix & mini marshmallows and then doctored up with a bit of cuteness ::

some of the stuff that's all ready to go::

LOTS of magnets::

my plan is to make a bunch of paper flowers in christmas-y colors to sell, but we'll see if i have time for that::
better get back to work . . .


  1. I am LOVING the "simplify" sign in yellow. How cool is that?! Love it. Looks like a lot of fun stuff. I hope I can swing by to see all your craft goodness!

  2. I could really use some cards and goodies! Love that Simplicity sign, too!

  3. Shana - when is your open house & sale? I'd love to try to come! Liz Stein

  4. Liz,
    Friday the 9th from 6-9 and Saturday the 10th from 10-2. Stephanie is coming too, I think. It would be wonderful to see you!
