Preparing for the Craft Show in Oct.

Photography is not my talent.  I love taking 
pictures, but they don't seem as wonderful as 
when others take them.
I wanted to show the 4 colors of angels I have.
Lizbeth Summer Fun, Cotton Candy, 
Tropical Punch, and Blue Ice.
I currently have 5 angels ready.
 I bought artificial wreaths years ago to add tatting 
to, but have procrastinated A LOT!!!
Well, the garland was done a long time ago, 
the snowflakes on and off a long time ago, 
the snowman were bought when the wreath was, 
and I just got the ribbon for the bow.
 I am second guessing the bow now.  The blues are 
so different, yet all the blues are different.
I made the bow yesterday.
 Hoping you can see all the little pieces.
Any opinions on the bow??  Should I look for 
another blue ribbon that could be a better match??
The wall is actually cream colored, but the sun is 
coming through the blinds to the left of this and 
I can't get better pictures.

Have a wonderful day and hopefully some tatting 
too!!!  :)

I think you've found the perfect way to display your angels! I like the bow as it is. Since it's not solid, I think it's okay to introduce another shade of blue.

Lovely pics and all the tatting - I can identify some of the patterns as well see an ice drop or 2. The angels look cute dangling in their boxes.
I like the blue ribbon. It is not the traditional red that goes with X'mas, but I like this understated elegance. Doesn't take away the focus from the little ornaments.
Also, think of it as the sky - backdrop for pine trees :-D

Thank you both very much!!! :)
I did order another ribbon just in case. ;)

I think the ribbon is fine. Nice way to show off snowflakes. The clear boxes are perfect for the angels.

Lovely angels,
I like your wealth’s, you don’t say how many you have but can I suggest you do different colour ribbons, The blue ribbon looks lovely with the stars on it. Perhaps one with red, another with white or silver ribbon giving people a choice of which wealth they like to buy.

God's Kid said...

Thank you both very much!! :)
Margaret, Thank you so very much for your advice!! This is only one wreath, but I am in the process of a wreath with red, white and green next with a red bow. Again, thank you so much for your suggestions, because if I get to do another craft show, I will remember!!

Love your angels in those boxes! Lovely wreath too!

God's Kid said...

Thank you!!! :)

At first glance I don't think it matters that the ribbon is not an exact match, but perhaps as Margaret suggests white or silver would go with everything. But love the way you have done them, the angels stand out well in their boxes too. Wish you every success

Thank you very much!! :)

The blue ribbon on the wreath is perfect! The angels should be very popular. I like the packaging you are using for them.
