dreaming of a beige christmas...

With all this book-page, sheet-music and burlap stuff that I've been crafting, the Holidays feel very beige for me this year.  My house is mostly beige too.  I'm going to have to find some creative ways to work in some pops of color here and there!


This is a project I've been wanting to try for a while now.  I was inspired by the stocking tute over at Cozy.Cottage.Cute.  Her stocking is much cuter, and her pleats much more uniform, but I think mine is cute too.  I'll be selling this one (and hopefully a couple more, if I have the time to make them) at my office's holiday craft fair on December 1st.


The thing about all of the stuff I've been making for the craft fair is this:  If It Doesn't Sell, I'll Be Happy To Keep It For Myself.  For a long time, I used to make things for craft fairs {baby stuff} that I really couldn't use myself.  But now...if it doesn't sell at the fair, I have a TON of awesome handmade Christmas gifts!  YAY!


So what awesome holiday craftiness have you been up to?

These are pretty stinkin' cute. I like yours & hers. Here I've been looking at all of these complicated stockings to make (like quilted/patchwork) and I think this may be the one. Plus, it brings an extra texture to the room (all about texture!). Thanks for sharing this!

I bet that stocking sells, it's gorgeous! Where can I learn to make a little green flower like on the stocking? I'm learning to make flowers this week :)
