You know what they say...aprons don't hold us back, they take us back. I wonder what they would say about reversible aprons?

one wish world scarves and sweaters

Mindy Relyea of One Wish World will be a joining the show this Christmas. Her scarves and sweaters are darling. Each scarf is finished with a little pocket. Inside every pocket is a surprise thought or charm. She believes in passing on goodness and sunshine in surprising places. She will have mother daughter scarves, women's sweaters, little girl sweaters and jackets, and of course logo tees.

Every sweater she makes is an absolute one-of-a-kind. Put together in an "upcycle" fashion, she literally pieces them together from lots of other sweaters to come up with the finished product. She love colors and patterns of all kinds, along with flowers and trees and trims, all of which you will find on every finished product.

gingerbread extravaganza

This gingerbread house just won a blue ribbon in the Gingerbread Festival at Thanksgiving Point. Could you die?... I don't think I've ever seen such an amazing work in gingerbread (click on the image to see the picture full-size).
Lisa Greenhalgh has over 20 years experience in designing and building gingerbread houses. We are happy to feature her amazing talents as part of the show this Christmas. She will be making houses that are just a little bit smaller than this scrumptious castle, although she will make special orders... Each house she makes has a different theme, from the fun 'Polka-Dot Place' to the 'Chocolate Manor' there is one that will tickle your fancy. They smell delicious and will charm young and old alike. It's a Christmas tradition your family will love...and they make wonderful gifts!


Bridget McKinley, clever and crafty to no end, is joining the Beehive Bazaar this Christmas. Her banners are darling, amazing and much cuter than anything I have seen in stores. I hear she might be making birthday hats too, you can see a greenish one in the foreground of the first picture. I think I need one for every occasion. Check her out on her blog, she's got some delicious culinary ideas that might leave you hanking to whip something up in the kitchen.
