It seems that Christmas Bazaars are harder to find here in Alabama. I mean the old fashioned Christmas Bazaars where the ladies of the church worked for months to make goods to sell as Christmas gifts. But here in Decatur, Central Methodist Church holds The Market at Central every year in early November. The money raised goes to missions. There is a special place in my heart for Central UMC because I spent ten years there teaching in the Weekday School. So when I attended the Market, I was able to visit with some old friends as I shopped.
I got this pretty bag for just $6. I know how long it takes to make those yo yos so it was a definite bargain. It was marketed as a wine bottle gift bag. I plan to add some tall picks and greenery to it and hang it on the bed in my guest room.
And speaking of crafts...I have made some more Polish Stars.
I have the supplies to make two more and I do believe I am done for this year! One of my favorites is the one on the far left which is made out of a hodgepodge of left over paper. So if you do this craft, just go crazy and use the paper you have available.
I am posting this evening because I am meeting my friend, Diane, for breakfast. Speaking of that sneaky girl, she got me good over the weekend. On her Facebook Status she posted that she and her husband were expecting a chubby little man in two months! She has been having some health issues and so I fell for this hook line and sinker. I was shouting to Marvin, Diane is having a baby!! Well when I read the post to the very end, the chubby little man was Santa Claus. Oh my, she is going to get it from me in the morning!!:) Maybe I should not be so gullible.
