Now I've started gearing up for Valentine's Day with 3D, heart shaped, hanging pieces and scherenschnitte Valentine cards.
|Valentine Scherenschnitte 4" x 6"|
Valentines were the first scherenschnitte pieces that I ever made to sell. It started 30 years ago. (GULP!) I worked in the archives at the College of William and Mary. On Valentine's Day, a group I belonged to had a bake sale and I snipped a few little cards to sell. They sold like crazy so I spent the rest of the day snipping more. This led me to selling my snips in craft shows for several years. That was fun, but it was a lot of work. Etsy makes the whole process easier, that's for sure.
The rest of my craft focus has been yarn related but not terribly productive. (Knit ten rows...remove 8....knit 5 rows.... remove 7.... Knitting doesn't appear to be one of my God given talents.)
I have two week days left of vacation. My hope is that I will have lots to share by the end of the break.
