Working hard of show stuff

Here a few of the things I have gotten done this week. I have 12 of these little Angels finished. These are the ones that Sheila painted the faces and did the bodies for me. I was able to get these finished last weekend while sitting on Sunday with Carmen at the show.

I have 3 of my Sadie dolls finished. I made up the little beeswax lights to go in her hands. I have quite of few of these ready to go. I am going to put them on my prim tree at the show next weekend.

I had some old books and used part of a pattern by Old Road primitives for the book part and Samantha's mouse. These made up quick and easy.

I had purchases several boxes of those plastic icicles from Walmart last year and wasn't sure what to do with them. After I made some beeswax ornaments the other day. I thought why not dip the icicles. These turned out real prim looking. I learned to let my beeswax cool down before dipping them. that is the hardest part for me, patience. It seems to take forever for it to cool down, especially since I am known for walking away from a pot of wax on a stove. I came back in the kitchen the other night and smoke everywhere. I did learn my lesson. Luckily hubby worked that night, so I didn't have to hear, Don't leave things on the stove and walk away.

I started putting things in the trailer today and forgot to take pictures of some of the items. But that back room was driving me crazy with all the show stuff piled high. Well, I have to get some Santas finished tonight.
