Those are so cute.
You are smart to begin now.
I don't know if I'll make anything to sell this year tho I have some time and could use the money. Not inspired (yet?).
I'd love to know what other people are doing.

Christmas items are showing up at craft shows. We took my wife's cardinal Christmas ornaments to a major show in NJ last week and did very well.
