I was up early this morning and found myself since pacing like I was expecting someone to have a baby. Well I am not expecting just pacing for pre jitter craft show nerves.
Somehow I remember all this years ago but as I get older seems I am more nervous now than I was back then.
Well here are a few items left I wanted to share with you all, more items for my show.
I am all packed and ready to go.

Angel pattern by Monika Bring on canvas. I added the verse, I used fun foam to make the music notes then stamped in black acrylic paint to stamp them on. I then antiqued the whole thing with Burnt Umber. I just love antiquing things. I know I made a lot of mud pies when I was a kid, something about grunge really appeals to me......
This hanging canvas has a design by Monika Brint. I just purchase the e-pattern a few days ago and I did up 2 of these. If one doesn't sell I just might have to claim one. Again a lot of heavy dry shading and more antiquing. Turned out better than I imagined.
 Canvas stockings.... the first one here is a Monika Brint  snowman and the one below is a Terrye French Santa. My Mum gave me a bolt of canvas and I really put it to good use this year. I did cut out floorcloths but just didn't have time, Maybe next year, they are all sewn and ready to be painted on.

A thrift store find here, I got this little wood basket for next to nothing and thought I would make it a year round thing. I just painted some stars with vine and berries on it. The original painting was all plain wood with a stecilled heart in green on it. I painted both sides. This would look cute with a little dried arrangements and some battery operated tea lites in it. A great gift idea!!!!!

 And lastly some recycled jar trees. These are fun and sell well.

Well thanks for looking. Back to pacing and will be heading out soon for set up.
Show starts tonight from 5-9 and tomorrow 9-3.
I will be reporting back in my next post.
Have a super blessed day  and thanks for dropping by.
