New Etsy Team Started

I just created a new "team" on etsy to help promote our etsy shops. I plan on starting a new blog for the team, and a facebook page to help get more exposure to our etsy sites. If you are interested in joining in please stop by primitive and folk artists under the community section on esty. The more the merrier!! I think if we all get together and brain storm we can help each other make our esty sales a huge success.

My Christmas Wish to You!

Good morning to all my blogging buddies! I just want to take a minute to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
  My Christmas wish for you is, health happiness and joy! Remember daily all the blessings that you take for granted, and be thankful for each day as it comes. We all face trials in our lives but we don't have to face them alone! All you have to do is look up and reach out and God will be with you!  Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you!

This time I made something for ME!!

When I did my craft show I saw a vendor with the cutest apron on. I asked her where she got it from and she said her friend made it for her years ago. Well I just had to have an apron like hers,since I tend to be very very...messy in the kitchen!!! Not to mention I figured my grand babies would get a kick out of it, and I am a big kid at heart! So I pulled out one of my old aprons and made a basic pattern to get started with, and then headed for the sewing machine. I do have to mention that I never tend to make anything for myself, everything ends up being given as gifts or sold so I was super duper excited that I was finally making something just for me! My daughter in law came into my craft room while I was trying to decide on the pocket, I was leaning towards a solid color but she insisted that I used the candy cane material so I went with what she chose.  OK now I have it all sewed up and drag my daughter away from the computer so she can be my model, she was all to happy to get in the spirit of the moment and put on her Santa hat too.  I think I am going to make these for next years craft shows, and to put on esty. Then while I was thinking about that I was thinking of variations to do, like reindeer, Santa, Christmas trees, packages and on and on... I can't wait to hit the store for more fabric!  Wishing you all a very BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!
