pintoppers: holiday edition

cupcake holiday pin toppers

I know its not quite Thanksgiving, but I am getting into the holiday spirit!  I had a custom order for a few pin toppers, and as I was working on them last night, I got an itch to whip up a few holiday toppers as well.

Once I got started, I couldn't seem to stop.  And I was hungry for a cupcake when all was said and done, but that's neither here nor there.

This is another great little "sit in front of the TV and mindlessly work" type projects that I pull out now and again.

and a little non-holiday topper fun also:

If you are interested, I will be selling these little guys for $4 per topper.  I am toying with the idea of opening an etsy shop, but for now, you are interested just email me at sewcraftyjess@gmail.com

On an aside, these are the first pictures taken in my new light box!  After seeing Megan, Anne Marie, and Jeni's light boxes, I knew that I just had to have one.  I followed, or should I say the hubby followed the same tutorial, and voila!  About an hour or so later, this contraption was born:

I think this will really help with my case of poor lighting during the dark dreary winter days of Pittsburgh.

Happy Friday everyone!
