Quilled Shiny White Snowflake Ornament

It has been a super busy week for me. I tabled at a mini craft fair on campus where I work--thanks to Jolene for setting up this event at Teachers College, Columbia University. I met a lot of great people in the community. Thank you for all of your wonderful support and to Susan from Naturally Susan for guiding me on my first event! It was a lot of fun and I will be looking forward to the next one!

Here is a pic of the table:
I originally only booked half of a table, but in the end I got the entire table as a student decided to cancel to focus on her finals. I now know I very much prefer the space!

The hardest part was lugging everything by myself on the train. It was extra exhausting considering how already stressful regular commutes to work are. I have a lot of things to work out for the future. :)

I also attended two work parties yesterday and today I stopped by the 3rd Ward Holiday Craft Fair in Williamsburg to see what goodies are out there. 

How was your week? Full of wonderful surprises, I hope!

Below is the first post in a series of quilled ornaments that I made during this 2012 holiday season.
It's absolutely one of my favorite ones of all time that I've made. It glistens and sparkles and looks fabulous! There are 31 paper strips and 15 rhinestones in all. It was really fun to make too.
I'm not sure if I'll be posting anymore before Christmas as I will be going away for a few days. If I'm not around, then have a warm, happy, and safe holiday!
