Snowflake Success

Wow. After all the excited planning, painting, sanding, embellishing, printing and meeting, the Snowflake Bazaar is over. Shellie and I had a wonderful time. Our friends and families showed us amazing support with calls, and visits from Massachusetts (Cindy!) and New Jersey (Betsy and Andy!). We didn't really know what to expect for a turnout, especially with the current economy, but we were pleased with the results of our first effort. Of course even more fun than making any sale was seeing people react to our goodies and the fun time we had preparing. Later that evening it snowed -- the first of the season -- magical!

Anything wood or tin was made by me; anything with fabric was made by Shellie.

Packaging is everything!

Shellie and me. Note my cottage T! On to the next venture ...
