I don't have time to do it anymore, but, I used to make yard art. I sold quit a few things too. :o)
I made stuff for 4th of July, Christmas and Easter. I loved doing it!! If I could make a living doing that stuff, I would be in heaven!!
We kept some for those holidays. We have to put them up every year.

I do lots of crafts! People always think I'm a bit funny because I am into "old lady hobbies" and I'm in my early twenties. Hehe. But I really do love doing crafts...

I knit, crochet, make marble magnets (I'm obsessed with marble magnets!), bead, do macrame, etc. I find it very relaxing and rewarding... plus all the crafty things I make are perfect gifts for people.
