Thursday evening....

Hello All!

I noticed today that I have over 300 followers! Can you imagine? I want to thank everyone that has signed on for all this. It seems like I don't have much to share these days. Same ole, same ole.........but, it's been a rather interesting week for me.
I haven't realized in a while how much time I actually spend on my computer and on-line for that matter. This week I have come to realize that I spend a lot of time piddling around picture trails, blogs and facebook. My hubby told me once that you can really get sucked into it. I have to admit, maybe I am one of those.
On Sunday, my computer started acting up a bit with certain sites, but I didn't think much about it. Then on Monday it was a little worse and then by Tuesday, it was really bad.......couldn't access certain sites at all. I didn't play on the computer at all for over 24 hours. It was like withdrawal!! Well, not really, but I hardly knew what to do with myself. It's amazing how much time I spend popping on and off the computer. I found myself feeling like I do when the electricity is off at my house.
Do you have any idea how many hours you spend at your computer in a days time, weeks time, in a month???
My new goal is to check early morning, noon and before bed. If I have new handmades to list at one of my selling sites, I'll do it at one of those times. It's amazing how much I have accomplished this week!! Lots of new goodies on my web site.

a chilly, Thursday evening...........

It has turned Winter-like in NC on this March Thursday. I thought I was going to freeze today. The wind has been blowing all day and my Bradford Pear Tree made my front yard look like it was snowing. Supposed to be even colder tomorrow.

I just wanted to check in and let you guys know that I have updated my web site with new goodies! This is one of my favorites:

You can check out the new stuff here:

Look for more updates in the next few days.
I'll be back soon.
Hugs and Blessings,

Sunday Afternoon......

Happy Spring you all!

I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since I have been here to post. Boy, does time fly when you're busy. I don't know about you guys, but I seem to have a few problems adjusting to the time change. I seem to be tired quicker than usual, but oh well, I'm sure it'll be fine in a few more days.

I am so blessed to have so many wonderful customers and I want to Thank everyone for their continued support of my web site and my products. It means the world to me to have such wonderful folks buying my handmades!

This is part of an email that I received recently and wanted to share what this sweet lady had to say.

Hi Shari!
My pillows safely arrived in RI today! Your sewing skills are most impressive Shari! My pillows are more beautiful than imagined.

My husband has been dealing with numerous health issues. Fortunately for us, we have wonderful support from family members and we thought these pillows would sum up how much we love them for everything they have done for us. We just can't wait to present them!!

Thank YOU for designing such a gorgeous pillow that can provide numerous kinds of sentiment. I'm so happy I made sure to order one for Larry & I! We will treasure it for many years to come.

Well, I've been at it again....working on my web site. Never found anyone to do what I wanted for the graphics, so I did it myself. Not fabulous, but ok for now....
Working on getting new goodies on my site and hopefully in a few days they'll be plenty to show you.
For now, all I have is a new special.
Board with Nails
ONLY $5.00 each!!

I've noticed that a few more folks are offering their designs as patterns. I've been trying to figure out how to do it as well. Any helpful hints to share???

Well, I still have a few things to do on this Spring Sunday, so I'm going to close for now. Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time.
