Christmas Creativity

Time for the Etsyblogger Street Team Blog Carnival.  The topics to choose from this time around are:

1) Share a holiday item that you created and tell us a little bit about it.

2) Create a holiday Etsy wish list and share it on your blog. What do you really want from Etsy this year?

I'm not really a person to "want" much, or to make lists for myself, so I have chosen to tell you about one of my creations!  Anyway, that is what this blog is about: CREATIVITY!  I've been making lots of old fashioned fabric yoyo's to sell in my Supply shop and decided to make a little candle mat at the Halloween time using some leftover orange fabrics.  I liked my candle mat and used it on little entry table.  So, later, I decided to go a little larger and created a center piece/table topper for Christmas.  I made  the yo yo's with Christmas colors, and added an underlayment of a gold lame fabric with tassels on the corners.  I liked the finished product and used it on my little apartment table!  It creates some fun for my dinning table!  You can order one for your table, if you like it!   (from my handcrafts shop!)

That's a lovely idea for decorations! And I agree, we all need to make stuff for ourselves every once in a while! :)
