I have been working on Christmas Items again, can't seem to stay away from that season. But the deadlines for the holidays issues will be coming up again in a few months, so I had better get busy. This pattern will be available on the blog in a day or so as an epattern. This snowman I am going to call Snowpal. This is another easy pattern to do. The Winter Wonderland is now available as an e-pattern or mailed version, on the side of my blog. I have also updated my website http://www.theoldecountrycupboard.com/ with new graphics and added the new patterns to it. So please let me know what you think of the new graphics. I sat down and drew out several new patterns the other night, and you guess it, most are Christmas and I have a few scarecrows in the works also.
My Friend Carmen and her hubby are coming down today, they will be spending the night, her hubby is going to hang some doors and other things in my daughter's new house. She informed me today that she is going to moved in by next weekend. I am nervous about that, but guess they have to grow up.
I am working on getting my new fragrances for my tarts. I am going to package them in 2 oz. oval containers with a lid. These are plastic and should protect them more. The soy wax is so soft, that when I have them at show they get smelled, then tossed around and sometimes they chip and just don't look pretty anymore. So I am working on a label to stick on the top. I used to sell ( 2) 1 oz. tarts in a bag for $1.00, so these will be going for $1.00 each.
But I have gotten some new scents, I am anxious to try. I am renaming some of them,just to see if the name does actually aid in selling them.
Amish Friendship: The Olde Doughbowl
MacInrtosh Apple: Fresh Apple Harvest
Crannberry Apple Marmalade: The Cranberry Cupboard
Warm Apple Pie: Mom's apple pie
Apple dumplings: Granny's apple dumplin's
Country Bumpkin: Country bumpkin
Sweet Potato Spice: Mabels' sweet tater pie
Cornbread: Granny's cornbread

Sweet Pumpkin Spice: harvest Blessings

Some I am still trying to figure out if I want to rename them or not. But I hope the packaging will make it easier to store them during shows.
Well, I had better get something started for dinner, Carmen should be hear some. Hoping we can get some craftin' done while she is here.
