Happy Holidays and Merry-Xmas from all of us here at Where Cuckoo Women Create Magazine .com.org.biz.
My latest assignment has been an utter joy to complete, as this is my favorite time of year. I love the shopping, the traffic, the animated drivers and the compulsion to give gifts to everyone I have ever met and some that I’ve never met. Usually, I get my gifts online at Sharper Image (Great prices on personal grooming devices) and the Burlington Coat Factory (Loads of fur (fake) this year! So IN!). However, my editor has sent me out to see what Cuckoo Women are creating for this year’s Holiday Gift Boutiques, and I loved it! I was able to get a gift for absolutely everyone on my holiday list!
My first stop was the West Countie Crafters Holiday Gifte Boutique and Sweet Shoppe.
There were so many booths and vendors and I just loved walking through and seeing what everyone has created for this year’s holiday extravaganza! While I can’t possibly show you everything (especially since a strange lady in a Santa hat kept getting in my way and grabbing all the good stuff up and shoving it in her motorized scooter’s carrying basket), I can give you a rundown of the things that I especially liked.
Now, this hand-painted gift combines two of my ultimate favorite Christmas themes, the cheerful and positive nutcracker and the soothing and reassuring clown. I couldn’t pass by it without snapping a pic!
GO GREEN is a mantra of our modern society, so these clever tree toppers and ornaments made from old bed springs were just flying off the wooden barrel they were displayed upon.
And this Santa-like skeleton thing – so seasonal!
Also in the GO GREEN holiday department were these fetching items:
Speaking of tree toppers, there was a whole booth of clever tree toppers at the faire!
I have to say that at the next booth I bought one of everything and crossed most of the people OFF of my list. Boy is that LIBERATING!
I couldn’t believe that I got so lucky this year! So many great gifts in one spot.
There were some other really interesting things that I saw, and, while I am not quite sure what they are, they look pretty special!
Well, dreary readers, that’s all for today. I have to take my pet chinchilla to the vet because he is making the most appalling sound- I think he ate my wool-felted Millennium Falcon. There goes the tree!
