New beginnings.....

Happy New Year Y'all!

Sorry, I haven't been around much lately, but I have been busy and it seems to get harder and harder to post here.
I have sooooo much trouble with pictures that I sometimes give up. Maybe, before I get back to work, I can take the time to figure it out.

Just wanted to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and a very HAPPY and prosperous NEW YEAR!! I have lots of plans for 2011, do y'all? Do you make new years resolutions?? Do you strive for new beginnings and changes?  I know that I do, don't always succeed, but I try.


Wanted to let y'all know that there are tons of goodies on SALE at my web site!!! Most will not be offered again, as I am making changes at my site as well. Look under the SALE! category. Quantities are limited.


Until next time.

a few more items for sale......


I had intended to get back on here before now, but things got a little hectic. I don't think I would know what to do with myself if I had nothing to do. There's always something happening around here.

Here's a few more things for sale.

I wish someone could help me come up with a name or description for this. I have been calling them door greeters when I have them on-line, but that doesn't seem to be the right thing to call it. I have sold several of these in (one of) my booths, but only 1 on line. They are really cute in person and have a very unique look to them. This one could be used all winter, not just for Christmas.
Long aged board with woven pocket filled with greens, moss and berries, plus a few other goodies. A little brown mouse is peeking out the corner. About 20 inches tall by 8 inches wide.
Originally priced at $27.99
NOW $12.00 plus shipping.


mini red check mantle scarf...
handmade, fully lined, about 83 x 17 inches in size
Originally $18.99 NOW $4.00 plus shipping
This would be really cute for Valentine's Day.


$1.50 each plus shipping


Regular size, quiled pillow sham
Great for make-do's and pin-keeps
$2.00 plus shipping


If anyone is interested in anything, please email

Does anyone have trouble posting more than one picture at a time??
Any help would be appreciated.

Until next time....

Hugs and Happy Holidays! Just a few more days. Are you ready?

long time gone.........

Merry Christmas Blogging Buddies!

It has been so long since I have been here to post and I am sorry for that. As we all know, it's such a busy time of year for everyone and I haven't had much spare time to get my thoughts together.

Between Dr's appointments, dentist appointments, orders, shopping for Christmas, decorating for Christmas, trying to my house cleaned and organized....not to mention a car accident thrown in, my days have been very full. I am finally beginning to get "EVERYTHING" checked off my list. Two more Dr. appointment, one to the Dentist (tomorrow and they're calling for Snow here) 2 more orders, one more gift to buy, (all the others are wrapped and under the tree), house is getting there, as well as some early baking, decorating is a bit sparse this year, just haven't been in the spirit. At my house, I have to move things all around just to make room for the tree and honestly, I haven't had the energy to much more. And finally my car has been repaired and all is well....

I have really been trying to simplify my household. I have been reading that a lot of other folks are doing the same. There is way too much "stuff" going on here for two people. Sometimes, I find myself working all over the house 'cause I have so much going on at one time. One of my  New Year's Resolution is to STAY better organized and keep my crafting confined to my space. There are times that I can't even clean my house for all the projects....NO MORE!! I have taken one room at a time and cleaned from top to bottom! My kitchen is the only room left and it will be finished this week.

Another resolution is to get off all my medication is 2011!!! If I continue to improve like I have the last 45 days, I can do it!! I am so tired of it all and I am following my Dr.'s orders to the letter so I can have a fresh start.

Okay, enough of my rambling, just wanted to explain a bit, but now on to other things.....


While  I was cleaning, I have found a few things that I no longer need. Here's a few pics and if you're interested, email me:

It's hard to believe it has been so long since I have posted.....I kept thinking I would post, but never got around to it. I have been trying to stay busy with lots of projects, but I had a really lousy (last) week. I had several  doctor appointments and was on pins and needles waiting on results. My numbers were up a bit, but I still have a long ways to go. At least my feritin was up some and we're hoping my iron and hemoglobin will be normal within 60 days. But, anyways I'm trying really hard to feel good. This week has been better for me.

Here are some things I have been working on.....
Soooo, pleased with how this turned out! I have figured out how to make this all by myself. This would make a great end table.

Well, I can't seem to get any more photos to upload, so I'll try again later.....

Saturday evening........

It's been rather chilly here today. Folks are burning leaves and it smells very Fall-like outside. Leaves are slowing turning on our Maple trees in the back yard. The Bradford pear in front hasn't started yet, neither has the huge Crepe Myrtle, but I'm sure it won't be too long.
I've been freezing all day...even inside my house. My capris and flip flops have got to go....they will soon be replaced with jeans and turtlenecks.
I am really not pleased with the way pictures are posted these days. It's too dang complicated!! But, I have several things I would like to share, so we'll see how it goes........

This was a bunch of goodies that went to my craft booths....
Lately, I've been making doubles and triples of everything.

Just added this to my web site....
Beautiful Cardinal Ornament will be on my web site soon!

Feeling like FALL.......

I think FALL is finally trying to arrive in K-ville! It actually has cooled off and it just feels like Fall is close by. Personally, I like the cooler has been so hot here this summer. It's nice to see folks bringing out their Fall decor and pumpkins. For a while there, I thought no one else was going to....


I decided the other day to cut up one of my quilts to make some things. I had pondered for months on what to make out of it....wanted to have a plan before I cut it. Finally decided on a few pin keeps, pillows and a few new things.
Sawdust Pillows....
wood star with old quilt pocket.....
muslin sheep with old quilt pocket.....


Last week, I got around to making this bear....I have been wanting to make one for ages and just never got around to it. I found this piece of plush felt that I have moved around to several different houses and decided it was time. The pattern is from Sweet Meadows Farm...I realize that mine looks different than the pattern, but I think he's pretty cool anyway....

I made his legs floppy so he could be posed in different positions. There's another one in the works...just needs eyes. I'll share him later.


Well, chilli's cooking and almost ready to eat, so I'm gonna run for now! Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear from you guys!!

Friday night...

I haven't posted since Tuesday and what an interesting three days I have had. Hubby shared his cold with me and it has really knocked me on my fanny!! Yet again, I have another illness. Felt like I had been run over by a truck for several days and then yesterday, woke up with NO sound coming out of my mouth. When I say no sound, I mean no sound! My poor kittys didn't know what had happened to me...they wanted no part of being in the same room with me. But, today it's better, not all the way, but at least I can hear myself. I have promised myself that I am going to be all well by tomorrow!! (Mind over matter???)

Got around to changing the special over at my web it is:

Cupboard Cat
Only $5.00
You can find it here:


Can y'all believe that once again Blogger has changed the process for adding pictures? Have I ever mentioned how much I hate change?? LOL!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Just finished this Scarerow-Witch and wanted to share with you all! Believe me this is not one of my normal creations....a Special order for a friend.
What do you think?

I just finished up the pumpkin as's one of those carvable kind from Michael's. I had stored it in my attic and I suppose it got too hot and split. Instead of throwing it away, I glued it back together, filled it in with wood filler, sanded it, painted it with two coats of Georgia Clay paint and antiqued it with Dark Walnut minwax. A lot of work, but it looks great!!

 Today's SPECIAL over at my web site is this:

Maggie Doll
Only $21.00 ea.
You can find it here:

That's all for now. Thanks for looking!

Saturday morning.........

Good morning all!!

We woke up to a beautiful, sunny day, although it's supposed to get nice and hot this afternoon. I was thinking FALL officially will be here next week, but I don't think the temperatures here in the South have realized that. It has been warm here for days....

It was aother busy week here in Kernersville....made several new things for Fall for my Pilot Mountain booth and my friend Terri (shares a booth up there) took all my treasures up there for the FALL OPEN HOUSE that was last evening. I can't wait to hear how we did up there with sales.

I have also updated my web site with a NEW PROMOTION!! Shipping charges on any order up to $200.00 will be a flat rate of only $5.95!! That could be a huge savings and a great time to make a first time purchase. Plus I will be adding new items in the coming days and unfortunately, discontinuing some as well. We are trying to get all orders out within a week and it's really hard when everything is made to order and we have SO much offered. Take a peek if you get a chance....this is the What's New page and it changes often.

This is the Special for today:

Olde Crow Make-do
Only $6.00 ea.

This is a fabulous piece for Fall and Everyday! My pictures never do my handmades the justice they deserve!!

Sunday morning.......

Hello, blogging buddies! It's been well over a week since I sat down and attempted to write a post. And here I am again...I have been busy this week and didn't seem to accomplish much of anything of any significance. Hubby has been on vacation, yet again!! I'm beginning to think he's home more than he works, but lately, I just try to forget he's hanging around.
We cleaned up outside a bit and trimmed some bushes and I cleaned my front porch so I could bring out a few Fall things. Not going to do as much this year, inside or out. It's too much effort to pack things away just to decorate for Fall. And besides this year, we have these two kittens that are into everything!! Worse than children, I do believe! I have had to put away my wonderful woodland tree that I decorate for all the seasons. They were trying to climb it and would take ornaments off and hide them, so after awhile, I decided it was best put up in the attic.
I have also been working on a few things for my web site. Look under What's New to see the latest.
Here's a peek for ya!

Individual Pumpkins......

Grungy White Ones.......

Sunflower Door Greeter...

Mini Pumpkin....

Plus look for the specials on the front page!!

Have a great weekend!
