Craft show and projects

Hubby and I did some Christmas shopping yesterday morn and then headed to the craft festival at the O'Connell Center in Gainesville, FL.  Wow, was it packed, we had a hard time finding a place to park.  It is next to Florida Field, so you would think parking would be better. My hubby posing by the Tim Tebow statue, even though he is a FSU fan.
 Inside the O'Connell center, two levels of crafters
 We got there early, everyone was on the upper level as that is where you enter, you could hardly walk up there.  The bottom level wasn't crowded yet.
 My husband bought a painted folkart plate from this guy.  They had some great Black folkart.
 My friend, Beth, she was squished in the there and couldn't move much.
 Some of her wares.  I couldn't get many closeups, because of the crowd.
I purchased this little pinkeep from Dodie, their booth was the first one I hit, they were standing in line to buy her things.  She is a friend of Darlene, the one I bought the elf from last week.
I got a couple more dolls made this week, another Mama and her baby,  I love making this one, but she takes some time.  She will be on her way to Alaska tomorrow, so I better dress her warm. She is a Happy Hearts Pattern.
 And another Raggedy holding a dollie, I tried a new type of  hair on this one.  Another of Sweet Meadows Farms patterns.
I am trying to learn how to paint the eyes instead of using buttons, I have a little trouble getting the circle completely round,  if anyone has any hints, please let me know.  \
I am wanting to start some new patterns and get ready for the new year.  Even though I love Christmas, ready for another holiday to create for.

Only 6 more days till I pick a winner for the doll and sock monkey fabric.  You still have time to enter, just click on the picture on top right hand side.

Hope everything has a great week!  Cyndy
