I’m trying to turn the plastic eggs into paper mache’ ones. So far I have 38 of them covered in paper. I picked up 5 bags of the plastic eggs at DT for of course a dollar a bag in hopes to offer paper mache eggs to my customers.  So far so good! I’ll share some completed pics once I get them painted and grungied.

I also wanted to share with you some wonderful arrangements our friend Sheila over at Seasons of thy heart did.

Getting back on track~

Hi Blog Friends!

Hope you are all doing well and making the most of your days.

I’ve been trying to catch up on lost time ~ being sick for weeks as you all know; really put me behind on craft work. But I think I have my mojo back and am enjoying crafting again.

Sadly, last weeks snow event here in the valley was a fizzle.


This was all we got, so needless to say, I didn’t get to make a snowman with my kit from Teri yet.

I stayed in and worked on some Valentines items to put in my selling booth.

Here is one of my favorite Valentines I made this year.


It’s a pattern by Kentucky Primitives.

I also wanted to do some St Patty items and had a pattern for an Irishman designed by Crows in the Attic Primitives.


I wanted to do some shamrocks to offer my customers too, so I just drew out the shape and sewed some up. I love how they turned out! Just plain and simple.

Remember a few posts back, I mentioned that I wanted to come up with a different kind of prim pineapple.

Here’s what I came up with. I like how it turned out, but Mr. Prim Craft didn’t get it.

So, what do you think?


Now, if you’ve read my post this far, I think you deserve a little chance to win one of my favorite Valentine items.

I DO NOT want you to advertise this giveaway. I want only the friends that read my blog posts to enter. My way of showing my true appreciation of you.

So, if you comment on this post you are entered. That simple!

I will draw a name on Friday evening~ Jan. 27th, say around 5pm est and announce then.

Wishing you all a very blessed day!

A Thank you and some sharing:

Happy Saturday Blog Friends!

Sorry I’ve not posted since New Year’s, I’ve been under the weather since Christmas day. ugh….

It’s the same crud many of you in blogland have been suffering with.

I’m starting to feel better, but still not much energy to do the much awaiting sewing I should be doing. I’ve been sitting around tracing out stacks of patterns to sew and now have lots to do, so I am hoping to get the energy level back this week to get them all done.

I recently won a giveaway hosted by Teri at White Sheep Farm. All you had to do was make her a snowflake and let her know you did. I thought that was a very creative way to host a giveaway.

Her offerings also had to do with snow~ smile.

Here’s what I found waiting in my mailbox last evening.


An oh so cute snowman and a painted wood box. But wait, what’s in the box?


The cutest snowman kit I’ve ever seen!  It even has a pipe and a heart for him!

Our temps have finally turned cold here in the valley, so I suspect we’ll be getting some snow soon and will be able to make me a snowman. Can’t wait!

Thank you Teri!

I love both the snow items!

If you’ve never visited Teri over at White Sheep Farm, go on over for a visit ~ She and her hubby are renovating their old farm house, it’s been a pleasure seeing their progress.

I have managed to get a few items I had sewn, put together.


This cute heart mouse make do~ pattern by Samantha’s Accessories. I made him on a bedspring instead of a wood bobbin. These are sure to be a hit with my customers!


How about these cuties! Pattern by Bird in the Hand Primitives. I did one the original size and one in a larger size. The larger one is a great size to display in a cupboard. I love how they turned out and Robin’s pattern was so easy to follow.

Well, that’s it for now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
