Christmas Card Display (and more)

The holidays sure do make everything more hectic and chaotic don't they? However, for those of us who are in the business of selling stuff; it's the perfect time of year!

To put it simply: I've been busy!
Between holiday parties, meetings, programs, shopping, and selling a few more items in my shop I haven't had many spare moments. Yet, I'm not complaining. I love this time of year.

I admitted the other day that I've only put out minimal holiday decorations, but I did add one more that I want to share. It's crafty (kinda) and quick. It's a Christmas Card Display. Usually, I just stick the cards on the fridge, but this year I wanted to showcase them a bit more. Plus, I've had these (see below) for some time and wanted to put them to use.

Of course, I couldn't find the dang TINY clothespins at first so I had to search the whole craft room. In doing so, I stumbled upon a mini string of plastic Christmas Tree lights that I knew would work perfectly with this project.
The instructions are simple: tie the string ends together to make a big circle and hang it from two thumb tacks (about  three inches apart) in the wall. Then, use the clothespins to hang you cards on the string of lights.
It took me no more than five minutes to assemble the display (I'm not counting the time I searched for the clothespins), and I love how it turned out.

Link time!!

I did add another new item to the shop:
Drab to Fab Earrings


Don't forget to check out the on SALE section of the shop either!

Time to run, more shopping awaits (as does the nieces' school Christmas Program.) Can't be late!
