Making tarts, candy canes and snowmen

I have been busy getting things ready for the upcoming shows. I have been working on tarts. I found some different scents this year. In this batch, I have a new one called Hillbilly Homebrew, it smells terrific, not the usual bakery scent that I usually like. I made some more banana bread, Mrs. Claus' cookies and my favorite MacIntosh Apple.
I am making the sprays to go with these. Have a mess in my kitchen right now, trying to get it all done in time. I got the labels done for this batch, you can see the closeup in the next picture.





I had one my customers call the other day, she wanted to make sure that I would have the candy canes at the Savannah show. My daughter started on these the other day and I was able to get them finished up. I have to wait for the dollar store to get them in for their Christmas, as I am about out of them.

Next I was in the mood to make a snowman, found this pattern I purchased awhile ago from Country Friends. I had some small grapevine wreaths laying around. When I first started him, I hated the way the body was shaped, but as I got him more and more finished he started taking shape and turned out really well. Now I am going to make some more up. These are made on a 12" grapevine wreath and have lights wound around the wreath. This will make a great centerpiece.
