New Year's Resolutions

It's been a quiet Christmas at the Cordwood Cabin ... but not an un-busy one as you see from the picture below, with a weird little sculpted piece that will be showing up again in future posts (along with a few of its friends and the story behind them).

Along with a few personal art projects, we've begun our New Year's Resolution -- to "make over" the Cabin Crafts shop with new themes, new ideas, and most importantly, new merchandise. So, over the break, we tried out a few new mystery ideas.

Here's one of them ...

... a little something that will look familiar to paper artists, I'm sure (but we promise these will have something extra-special).
And, of course, the surprise visit from some of our Silver Screen friends found in a clip art hodgepodge. Mickey seems to be quite handy at steering ... well, whatever that is --

Obviously this one doesn't run off helium. Just a little tinsel and Christmas cheer.

Obviously, the shop version won't be featuring copyrighted characters ... but there might be a familiar face on board.

Now what are these strange little pictures for?

The answer to that question and much, much more will appear over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for the all-new Cabin Crafts!

P.S. Check out our Yard Sale week on Ebay -- starting on Tuesday, we'll be listing a variety of hodge-podge, flea market finds, old collectibles, and items "donated" by various friends and family for the sale, all at low starting prices. From craft books to hodgepodge dvd's and movies donated to the pile ...

What a cute idea that balloon is. I like the sculpture too.
