Christmas and the Crafter

What does Christmas mean for the crafter? Besides cooking the ham, decorating the tree and wrapping gifts, the crafter’s mind is probably thinking ahead to the upcoming spring holidays. After all, customers and friends will soon need gifts and decorations for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter. Spring craft shows are on the horizon, as well.

While others have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads, the crafter has visions of bunny rabbits, chicks, bird houses, butterflies, flowers, hearts, shamrocks and pinwheels spinning in her head. If you haven’t started those spring crafts yet, you may be behind. So pull out those spring patterns & spring fabric prints. Start making those potholders, refrigerator magnets, table runners, pillows, totes, basket fillers and other needfuls your customers and friends will be looking for shortly after the New Year.
