Thankful and Giveaway Winner

 Baywood Golf and Country Club in Millsboro, Delaware

I am thankful for many things this year.  On the top of my list is good health.  At my age, you can't take it for granted!  I am thankful I am able to enjoy traveling, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, yoga, reading, and jewelry making.

My jewelry making is getting more rewarding each year.  A pair of my earrings were featured in Bead Trends Magazine.  I have a few more being featured in the future.  I am a designer for several companies.  One of the companies is Znetshows.  I have gotten some pretty pearls, cultured sea glass, and findings for free.  I am giving away a set of 5 of their morning glory clasps to KayzKreationz      to enjoy.  Please email me your address.

Znetshows morning glory clasps are going to

I made some changes in my craft show table which I would like to think helped me at craft shows.  I added a banner by Visaprint which makes me look more professional.  You can see the top of the banner in the photo below.

Kathy at Biggs Museum, Holiday Fair 2013, Dover, Delaware

I eliminated most of my holiday decorations to make more room for my jewelry.  I used lots more art beads in my work this year which enhanced my work.  I added a new necklace display which my husband helped me make.  It is show in the far left corner of my table at the Biggs Museum.

Old wood frame that I had on hand
I took an old wood frame that was just sitting in a closet.  I went to Lowe's and purchased some
hardware cloth.  The hardware cloth was cut to fit into the back of the frame.

 I spray painted it with white paint.
My DIY Jewelry Display
Last step was stapling it into place.  I then decided to put some burlap on the back and make a stand out of an old, heavy metal hanger.  Instead of using s hooks to hang my jewelry unto the screen, I bought inexpensive Christmas ornament hangers and cut them to size and put some curls in them.  This saved a lot of money.  I discovered S hooks are pretty expensive.

 I am thankful that I have done much better this year at my two craft fairs and I have one left.  I will be at the Lewes Yacht Club Holiday Show on Dec. 7, 2013.  If you are in Lewes, Delaware please stop by and say hi.  It is free and open from 9 to 4.  A wonderful lunch is available for purchase and the town will have house tours and an old fashion Christmas parade.
