New Christmas Ornaments!

Hello, Hello Again!

It seems to be now officially Winter here. We have seen the first sight of snow. No good for a Wheelchair user such as myself.

But determined as I am, nothing will stop me from doing what I want to do, if that means hauling 2x4's or 2'x4' Sheets of Baltic Birch in my Trunk, or the 2x4's out my window of my car, or even as far as putting a few sheets of Plywood 4'x8' Sheets on the roof of my car.

Been there, done that, many times, as I call my Car, my Hillbilly Truck, Git-r-Done!

Anyway, here are the Latest. I've decided to invest a little more money that I didn't have to purchase Glitter, to put some Glamor in my Ornaments or some Sparkle, to see if there is a Glimmering hope, that someone likes Glitter over natural.

Myself, I'm a Natural. I can do with out the Glitter. But the way I see it is, why not purchase Natural Looking Ornaments, then use it as a Family Project to Paint, Glitter or whatever else is in mind to Deco the Ornament for your own personal Use???

Keeps the cost down being natural, but that is ok, maybe being a little more expensive will catch the eyes better.

Enjoy the pictures.

jimmy, i like the natural also, but its nice to see ya trying new things. Also, isn't it entertaining to get huge sheets of plywood and long boards home when you don't have a large truck to haul them. I have a subaru legacy! lol, some nice guy offered to throw them in his truck if I didn't live too far away. I declined, and got it home safe and sound by myself. I must have looked like a newbie with my home made roof top carrier. congratz on the treasury! hope your sales increase for Christmas. things should really pick up after thanksgiving.

I hope so, I would hate to pump all this money into adding items to my store and not get any return back yet.

The old lady and I Spend close to $350.00 In yarn that we didn't really have so she could start crafting stuff to sell herself on etsy. Of course I am going to help her make stuff.

But the fact that we are 300+ More in debt. But I always look at the brighter side of things myself, and she slaps herself for buying all that yarn.

Maybe I Should build something for my car to hold the sheets on my way home on my car, that would be awesome, didn't think of that. Some Braces on the top of my car and trunk, to hold them in place side to side and tie downs to keep them down while i transport.

jimmy, Something I borrowed from a fellow crafter. get 4 of those small kitchen plungers and pop off the suction cup off the bottom and use them ot keep the rack in place on the roof of your car. You still will need a rachet strap and bungees, but the suction cps keep the rack in place really well.
