Yay....all my public Christmas markets are now complete, and I must say this was the best season ever for sales! Success all around. So now I can almost relax. I have an open house with two artist friends in less than two weeks, and I am currently sending new inventory to the boutiques that sell my jewellery.

It wont be long until we  are off to England, to spend Christmas with my side of the family. Winter has set in here early this year, and we have already seen several big snowfalls, and cold temperatures, so I will welcome the break to a somewhat warmer, albeit, rainier climate.

Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends! We Canadians had our turkey and pumpkin pie last month and are already  well into the Christmas season. With all this snow, its easy to get into the Christmas spirit! Pin It

Cheap and Cheerful Earring Display

The car is packed and I am ready for Christmas show number 2 of the season,  this Saturday! 

I needed another earring display, to show a small group of earrings created with my custom ordered paper beads, and needed to come up with something quickly! So I put this together in just a few minutes with materials that I had on hand.

I had some 1/4 inch thick cork board, which I covered with pages from an old useless book. First, I tore some of the edges, and then I just used a glue stick to glue the pages to the cork board. An old wooden plate/picture stand was used to hold it up. 

Then I used tiny pins to pin the earring cards to the display. It works in great with my very vintagy display that I use for all of my shows. This is also great because the display comes apart, and the stand folds flat for easy packing!

Did I mention I was extremely busy??? I hope to catch up on some of my favorite blog reading very soon.
