Good luck on your shows. You look well prepared with plenty of inventory.


Hanna, Maddie, and I will definitely be at Crafty Wonderland this year. I think we may miss Plucky though (gasp!). Justin Timberlake is the Thursday before it starts and that would mean making two trips to Portland in the same weekend. We will have to see how my concert recovery goes....

Good luck this weekend!



I would just love to come and sift thru all that wonderful vintage Christmas stuff and then sit in the middle of it all! You are going to have some happy customers! Good luck, I know how much work doing shows can be! karen...

Looks like Oregon is THE place to be right about now :)

My sister in law gifted me the book "Kitschmasland" and I love it! But-visiting your studio and/or going to one your shows is on my bucket list. Best to you always.

I am, as always, in complete awe of your crafting stamina. Can I assume you work on these all year?

I see your huge stash of Putz houses. I got a bee in my bonnet, about a week ago, to create some for the first time. I'm building them from scratch. I've always loved them, so I don't know why I haven't thought of it before. (Now that I'm planning on selling them, it might have been nice to get this epiphany a couple of months ago, but such is the curse of my creative mind.) Do you update old ones, or start from scratch?


I just want to shop in your living room! So much cuteness! I have never been to a craft show here in Michigan that has anyone selling the wonderful things you do.

I wish I could come to one of your shows. Everything is beautiful! I'm thinking of putting out some Christmas this weekend, even though my kitchen remodel still isn't done. I can work on the rest of the house. Hope you have a great show! You are going to have some lucky shoppers!


Oh you have the best Christmas things!! I hope your show is super good!!!


Oh, I could play forever with all of your Christmas goodies! Have a great show!!!


Question, Do you ever worry about running out of all that lovely vintage goodness? You seem to have amazing luck finding tons of stuff to craft with (I wish I had your luck) and I just wondered how you part with any of it. Good luck with your shows. I can't wait to see what you post in your shop!


Wowza! I can't believe you crafted all those things by yourself. Guess that's your Magpie Ethel magic! Everything looks so cute. Good luck with your sale:-)


Even after seeing all your Instagram pics, I had no idea your crafty treasures was so extensive! Have fun and good luck - you've worked hard!!!


Absolute wonderland! Best of luck selling this season!


I'm thinking about the time and effort invested. Good thing you love what you do... It looks like the troop amassed before a campaign. Best of luck this busy selling season. May health, happiness and profitability be yours.
