Sunday morning....

Good Morning!

Life has become quite hectic in the Freshwater household as of late.....too many irons in the fire.  I haven't had much of a chance to be on here lately...and not quite sure if anyone has missed me. LOL!! I realized recently tho that I really loved blogging...I'm thinking I should try to find time to do more than I have been. I really have enjoyed sharing my thoughts and ideas with everyone.

As I am planning my week, a cute story comes to mind.......

Several years ago as I was trying to decide whether or not to get back in to the "CRAFTING BUSINESS", I met these two ladies, in a hole-in-the-wall shop about 30 minutes from my home. After several visits to their store and many more conversations, they convinced me to rent a space in their tiny store. As it turned out, this little space got me started doing what I'm doing today. They were actually the ones that named my business......One of the owners (Linda) thought Homespun and Primitives described me to a tee.....
But on to my real story. I developed a really nice following there, actually rather quickly. I couldn't keep my booth full. Folks would come in and make a bee-line to my space. Robin (the other owner) told me one day that I could sell almost anything, even stitcks,  if it had homespun tied on it.....wala! This is what I went home and made.
I have brought back "RAG TWIGS" to my web site.  A really prim alternative to rag balls.
It's amazing how many I have sold...Personally, I love them. And such a conversation piece!
You can find them here:

Afterthought, I want you all to know that I kept a booth in that store for over 9 years...until the day the doors closed for good, a couple of years ago. It was a most rewarding experience...one that I will always remember.

Be sure and check out my web site....

I'll be back soon! Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and Blessings,
Shari

I love the story about rags and twigs. :) I don't always blog regularly either, but I do enjoy it. I think it's just fine to post whenever the mood strikes and time allows. I'll look forward to your posts whenever they appear. :)

I enjoyed your sharing. It is funny how life takes us through twists and turns, beginnings and endings.

You are so talented!

What a wonderful story and how neat that you stayed with them for 9 years! I like hearing about how you got your name. How funny that you made twigs and homespun and I love them, haha!
