Reminder of giveaway, Christmas swap gifts and sharing some new craft items….

Good morning Blog Friends,

Brrrr…. it’s cold outside!

Want to remind ya’ll my giveaway ends tomorrow night. I will draw a winner on Thursday morning!!  Click here to enter. Only taking entries on that post for the giveaway.

Look at what I received in the mail last night! I entered a Christmas Swap and was paired up with Casey from Classic with a pop and here is what she made me. I love it! I love the beach and now I’ll have to do a beach theme room. She made a table runner out of burlap and attached starfish to each end and gross grain ribbon to finish it off. Then she glued ribbon loops to some seashells. I think I’ll use them in a center piece as a bowl filler with sand.

Thank you Casey! Great job!

How cute is this prim panda bear! I went to a little shop up the road from me called The Shoppes at Mauzy. Click on the link to visit their website. The shop is chocked full of prim stuff. I spoke with the owner while there about doing some consignment, not sure if I will as she asks for 30% of the sale. A little steep. I know I can add it to my price but I like to make my items affordable to everyone.

Ok, here are some pics of things I’ve been working on the past week.

Prim Snowy’s and Nicks on a stick! got the pattern from My Primitive Saltbox. She sells her patterns for $2.00 each and I am loving making all the patterns I have purchased. I sell these for $8.95 each in my selling booths.

Christmas Mice! These are my own design and are oh so cute! I have been selling them for $8.95 at my selling booths and they disappear quickly! I love the top pic. I made a bottle brush tree for him to hold.  I got the technique for making bottle brush trees out of sisal twine from a blog buddy but can’t for the life of me remember who??? Sorry.

Prim Santa doll of my own design. I think he turned out oh so sweet! He’s holding a prim candy cane I made and added greens and pips to it. Gonna sell him for $16.95 in my booth.

Gotta get back to working on more crafts. I have a bunch of Christmas stuff to finish up before it’s to late to sell Christmas stuff!! Where does the time go?

Have a great day. Will be back on Thursday to post the winner of the giveaway!!

Good luck to all,

Prim Blessings,



  1. Wow, Jean.....love all your prims that you made. The mice are to die for!!..I've been meaning to make some for the holiday...and that santa doll is darling! Love your new patterns. Will you be selling your patts?

  2. Jean your things are so cute! I just purchased the pattern from Primitive Saltbox, now I need to find the time to make them! Love them!
    Good luck with your giveaway and I will have to check out the little shop you mentioned when I have more time.

  3. I love the little mice and that Prim Santa in the candy striped pants is just gorgeous (sigh)

  4. I have an upstairs bathroom that was already painted blue when we moved in. I was wanting to go with a beach theme and it worked perfectly! I never thought about putting ribbon loops on shells, cute idea! It is nice to have a fun room where all the others are prim, even if it is only a small bathroom.

    You have a lot of creativity and talent girl to come up with all these ideas by yourself! I wish I had some of that! I always have to follow a pattern, I'm afraid to get very far from it, haha. Your hand mades are wonderful!
