ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

I know that there are some people that think this is a stupid challenge, but to me it is important. My cousin Bob Smith is suffering from this terrible disease, and if dumping a bucket of ice water over my head helps raise awareness and funding for research then a bucket of ice water it is! To raise funds for this cause I am also having a primitive auction of my handmade items on Friday August 22- Sunday August 24th. If you don't care to take the ice bucket challenge please do stop by my facebook page: and bid on a primitive item. All proceeds are going to ALS.  Thank you in advance for your support!

Halloween Snowman

Well I finished him off this afternoon.  I did add another bat, and put rusty pins with rusty bells on all of the bats tummies.  This was a collaborated effort, with Carmen Ellis giving me the idea of doing a Halloween snowman. So with her inspired idea, and a few pow wows, during the progress, this is the end project.  I have to thank Carmen Ellis for the fantastic idea, and I can't wait to do some other Halloween snowmen.  Of course they will be dressed differently, because this one is Carmen's !

Sneak Peek

Good morning friends! I hope today finds you well! 
I have been working on a new project, it is actually a custom order :) for a special lady! Here is a sneak peek of just a small bit of this piece. I will post a picture of the finished project in a day or so,when it is complete.  Fall is just around the corner, and honestly, if I had my way, I would create for Fall and Winter all the time! I love the fall colors, and the crisp air that comes with it. I have to admit I'm a big kid when it comes to Halloween, and Christmas time!  I find those seasons just magical :).  I look forward to seeing little ones all dressed in their Halloween costumes, carving pumpkins and of course decorating. After Halloween, I look forward to getting together with family for Thanksgiving and all the yummy smells that comes for baking!  Christmas, what can I say about Christmas?I have so many wonderful memories of my Christmas past, as a child, a young mother, and now as a grandmother, and more memories to make!  

I am looking forward to creating all kinds of new goodies for the upcoming seasons, and I do hope you will check back often to see what I am up to!  We still have lots of summer weather here in North Carolina, days filled with out door activities, swimming, and bbq's. But my hands will be kept busy creating for the Fall and Winter time seasons. 
Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Once again time has gotten away from me!

I can't believe that I have not posted in over a year!! Shame on me!!!  I do have to say that I have been one busy bee though in the past year :)  Mikey keeps me on my toes, as most 2 almost 3 year old's do ! He is a very busy boy, and loves to see what makes things work! He loves playing with tools, cars and trucks. He is an adventurous little guy that loves to climb, on anything :) He can undo every child proof lock there is, and we have resorted to screwing drawers and cupboards shut, there is a problem with that though, if he can find a "real screw driver" he can unscrew it and has been since he was just a little over 2 :/.

Last year I tried my hand at wholesaling which kept me extremely busy, and working until the wee hours of the morning. I was so busy with wholesaling I didn't have any time to keep up my retail business :( . After giving it a lot of thought, I stopped wholesaling and am selling strictly retail.  I seem to enjoy it much better, and I am able create some One of  a kind pieces, that I wasn't able to do while wholesaling.

 It is getting to be the busy time of year, with the fall and winter seasons coming! I am looking forward to making some new pieces, I  have recently made a couple of one of a kind dolls that are available for purchase. Send me a message if you are interest.

I hope I haven't lost all my followers, and I will try to be so much better at keeping up with my blogs.
