Christmas Boutique

If you are local to the San Diego, Riverside, Orange County, Los Angeles areas, you are welcome to join us for our 5th annual Christmas boutique tonight, Friday, 11/18 from 5:30 - 9pm. There will be lots of great vendors with tons of great gift ideas! Click on the image below for more information.

I have been busy making a few fun crafts to sell at the boutique in addition to all of the great deals I will have on my cash and carry products. Plus there will be a FREE make and take project and lots of yummy food and great prizes!

Below are a few of the items that I have been making to sell...

These little altered clothespins were inspired by Nona Davenport and Amy’s Art from the Heart.  I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make the scallop rectangles and then folded them up to have something for the pins to clip to. (I tell ya, that AP cartridge has 1,000,001 uses!)

I resorted back to the tried and true nugget tins for this project, using one of PTI's great oldies but goodies called Holiday Treats. I use this set every year and always get compliments.

I have seen so many of these fun fluffy sock cupcakes lately and just knew I had to try some myself. I bought a TON of socks this year and those that don’t sell, will be well loved by me. (I am always cold, so I like to wear cozy socks.) They were actually pretty easy to make.

I made some cute little cupcake card/tags to attach to them using my Sweet Treats cartridge. (Yes, I do own lots of cartridges other than my Art Philosophy cartridge! I just don’t use them as much anymore because the AP cart has almost everything I need on it.)

If you want to find the perfect gifts, while still enjoying what the season
is all about, you won’t want to miss this great boutique. Come hand pick, design, or even create your gifts without crowds or stress! See you there!

  2. All of your projects are great!! Those sock cupcakes are super cute! Where did you find the tutorial on them?

  3. How did you do at your boutique? I just did my 4th bazaar on Saturday and it was a pretty good one. I've been selling my sock cupcakes like crazy this season and was curious how yours did?

    I have yet to try the nugget tins. May I ask how much you sell your tins for and where you find your tins?

    Well, I hope you did well and I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday season!

  4. How cute are these items! I love them. I am hoping to do some bazaars and craft fairs next year and I think this stuff has to go on my to be made stack. Love love love them all.
