You are Special Patterns

Follow by Email

Monday, August 24, 2009


Today, I got 3 of my lightboxes made. This is from a You are Special pattern called Christmas Blessings. I had 3 old sewing machine drawers that I used for this. In the original pattern, I used the 5 lb. kraft cheese boxes, but those have gotten so expensive to buy. I bought a bunch of the electric candle lights from craftwholesalers.com . This year, I am going to buy a bunch of those dollar store lights that are $1.00. Another crafter shared the idea of cutting off the tube of the candle tube, and making it shorter. She just said she used a jigsaw to cut it.
I had to put my pattern sharebox at the bottom, for some reason it stopped showing up on the side, so I reloaded a different version of it and it all the way down.
I only have 2 scarecrows to make now and I am finished with orders. I am taking a break from working on orders and making some things I want to make right now. I have written up the pattern for the Santa's Sleigh ride and it will be on my website as soon as my webmaster can get it on. If you wish to purchase it now, put a buy it now button on it side to purchase with paypal.

  2. Hey Sandy,
    I am totally amazed at how much you can get done in a day! I love the idea of using old sewing machine drawers.. hard to come by in this area tho. I made the lighted snowman boxes from your pattern last year and just made my own boxes but they were just a sweet and they all sold! Love the Santa and snowman!
