Crafty Sunday

I was battling a slight cold today, so any thoughts of going outside flew out the window. I made the most of my day by making a few origami cards and goodies for my Etsy shop and for the next craft fair. I had 3 sets of origami stars that didn't sell last season, and they all sold yesterday, which was totally unexpected. I thought it'd be a good idea to have a few more sets handy for the next few craft fairs just in case there's repeated interest. If at first you don't succeed...

I also spent a lot of time today bookmarking things on Etsy that I want to give people for Christmas. I foresee my PayPal taking a nosedive soon, but hey, go handmade, right?

I went over to Wee Memories today to check out their challenge (#31: using patterned paper). I decided to do some paper piecing in the background of the card and then tack on a label with the sentiment. I decided to add the flower and rhinestones to use up the white space.
