My beautiful ornies from the Prim Pals Swap

Aren't they just the greatest! I love them all and will cherish them every year. I can't wait for next year to take part of this great swap. I had so much fun making and receiving them. I just wanted to share my goodies. I am still in the process of getting all my Christmas stuff out. I don't know but this year I have not been too excited about getting everything out. I think it is because of the transition out of the military we will be experiencing soon. So, I have been feeling blah...... But I am hoping that once I get my Christmas village out I will feel better.
I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving! I know I did! And I just want to remind you all again that I have a coupon for my shop. It's for 10 % off your order. Just head on over to my previous post to find out how you can receive your 10 % off.

Well, I did not attend the flea market last Saturday. I had a major sinus headache and wasn't feeling too well. That's alright, there is always next time. But on a good note.....My Santa shelf sitter is quite a hit with everyone. After I posted it I got a few emails on purchasing them. Well, you win. I am going to start selling them in my Etsy Shoppe. I also have another idea for one I am going to work on. I am going to make a father frost one. He is going to be blue with lots of snow and sparkles! So, for those of you interested in one, just email me. Look for the tab on the top. I had to hid it b/c I was getting a lot of spam. But just drop me a line because I haven't put it in my shoppe as of yet. I need to grab some more supplies before I do so I can make some more. But for those of you who need him now(lol) just drop me a line and I'll put you down for one. Oh, and before I forget. Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway over at Prim Pals. Don't sign up for the giveaway here. It will not count. You have to head on over to Prim Pals and sign up.

But I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ho, Ho, Ho......

This is a little something I worked on yesterday. It is a Santa shelf sitter. I thought he came out pretty darn nice. I am torn about whether or not I want to sell him. He looks so nice in my cupboard! I probably will take him with me to the flea market tomorrow. See if anyone will like him. I am hoping to make another one. But I have to wait till after the flea market though. I want to make sure I have enough funds to buy materials. Anyway, I will try and remember to take my camera and to take pictures. I have a nasty habit of forgetting my camera at times when you want to capture the moment forever. But I will TRY to bring it. I want to say thank you all for your wonderfully sweet comments yesterday about my loss. And by loss I mean the pie safe. LOL. But you guys put my feelings into perspective and I want to say "Thank You". They really meant a lot to me. So, on that note.....Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Update on the pie safe.

Well, it looks like I won't be getting the pie safe for Christmas. Boo Hoo. I was trying all morning yesterday to get in contact with the woman who had it but she never returned my responses. Later on in the evening she informed me she had sold it already to a buyer who came by that morning with cash in hand. Thanks lady. Oh well, I can only hope it has a termite infestation and disintegrates in a few years. One can hope.....Ok let me stop being grumpy. But I still secretly hope it has something wrong with it! Maybe another one will cross my path and it will be better then the one that got away. That is what I am going to keep telling myself. Well, I just wanted to let you all know. I am going to go back to looking on Craig's list. I really love craig's list. It is the best thing ever. I have found a lot of great things people are willing to give away or sell for unbelievable prices. But I always have my husband go with me. You can't really trust people's intentions out there. But so far I have come across some really nice people.  I don't think Abilene has too many mean people. Or maybe I haven't come across them. But you should really check out Craig's list. Check out the FREE section. People are trying to get rid of great stuff all the time. You would be surprised. But thanks again ladies for all your great suggestions on how to convince my husband into getting me the pie safe. I think I am going to write them down and save them for when I come across another one! LOL.

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Look what I got!

I joined in on the swap hosted by Wendy over at Ravenwood Whimzies. And let me tell you, it was so much fun! My swap partner was Susan over at Clucklebees. She made me the cutest pair of sheep! And the cutest ornie of a shepard in the field with his sheep! Susan, I don't know if you follow my blog. But I just want to say how thrilled I was to get a box from you! You make the best prim items! I just adore your work and I am so happy I was partnered up with you. I am so sorry I didn't post this sooner. I have been under the weather. My sinuses have been acting poopy and I feel horrible. But it is a little better today. So, I wanted to share with you all my swap.  Thank you so much Susan!!!! Plus, I joined in on another swap over at Prim Pals. I am anxiously awaiting for that package to arrive. We have sooooooooooo many talented girls over at the forum. I can't wait to see what everyone made so I can put them on my tree.

 Also, if you haven't got a chance to head over to Prim Pals you should. I am hosting a special giveaway over there. It is for one of my snowman that I made from a Wooden Nail pattern. He is too cute to pass up. So, if you would like to enter my giveaway please head on over to Prim Pals sign up and post your favorite Christmas memory in the giveaway thread. And that's it!

In other news, I found what I want for Christmas. A Pie Safe. Yup, you heard right. While some girls want diamonds, and furs. I want a pie safe. LOL. My husband wants to buy me a pair of boots I spied in the store instead. But I want the pie safe. And I figure, I can have the pie safe longer then a pair of boots. I might only be able to wear them twice then probably give them away. While a pie safe.................I can have forever. LOL.  And the owner is only asking for 100 for it!!!! I am sold. So, if you happen to see my husband tell him, no, convince him he needs to get me the pie safe. A happy home is a happy wife; right? Oh, and this weekend was pretty busy for me too. But we managed to squeeze in finding a pair of chairs for the table. I needed just two more and found these gorgeous comb back windsor chairs for 40 dollars for the pair!!!!!
Excuse my messy table.
I love them and they are so comfortable! The kids love them too and fight for the King's chair,as they like to call it. But that is what I have been up too. I am also trying to pull out my Christmas stuff. I want to make a picture trail and show all of you my holiday decorations and gatherings. I am slowly working on that. So, in the mean time. I will be busy. My business is pickin up a little bit so I have some orders coming in. Yay! And this weekend I will be trying my hand at selling at a flea market*Gulp*. I hope I sell some things. They are looking kinda sad at my house. They need good homes. LOL. But anyways, thanks for dropping by and listen to me ramble on and on. I hope I didn't bore ya.

Have a great hump day!!!!

You will never guess what I found at the Goodwill!!!!

Last weekend my husband, kids and I went on a drive around town before going to church. My husband noticed that they had opened a new Goodwill downtown. This one was pretty big.  And as any good husband would do, he asked if I wanted to stop in and take a peek. Well, of course I dragged everyone inside to take a look around. I wanted to see if they had any wool skirts or coats that I could possibly use for my crafts. Well, I did find one skirt. But I guess that is pretty good being that I am in Texas, mind you. But I also found a mail, key holder that I will be painting for my sister-in-law. She wanted one for her kitchen and asked me to paint her one with grapes and wine on it. It's a nice one, but thankfully my husband was with me because inside it was a dead black widow. It was big, gross, and dead. But gross. Really gross. Did I mention I am afraid of spiders. I just about ran out of the store. But after it was disposed of  I calmly walked around to see if there was anything else of interest and spider free.  My kids dragged me over to the toys section(Ugh, like we don't have enough already) to try to convince me into buying them a toy. But something caught my eye. A fabric foot was sticking out from under some teddy bears. I pulled it out and about squealed with delight. It was a prim raggedy ann doll. It was handmade and signed!!!! It still even had a card on it from the person who made it. Now, let me tell you it is extremely hard to find or even come by anything prim here in Texas. So, I grabbed it and made a b-line for my hubby. When I told him what I found he politely( insert sarcastic laugh) rolled his eyes at me and looked at me like I was crazy. But who cares. Do you want to know what I spent on it?

That's right .99!!!!! I couldn't believe it. Here is a picture of her.

 And here is a picture of the card that was pinned on her. I tried to find this woman's website. Or if she had a website. I can't find anything. I really love this doll and I was interested in finding out what other dolls she had to offer. I kinda feel bad in a way that I paid so little for such a lovely doll that was signed and hand stitched. It makes me wonder if the things I stitch and sell will one day find there way to a Goodwill store. Not that there is anything wrong with them. I love finding treasures at Goodwill or Salvation Army. It's just a little sad. Oh well, I just wanted to share with all of you my awesome find. I just couldn't keep it to myself!

Have a lovely Wednesday!

I was featured in an Etsy Treasury!!!!

Well, today to my surprise after checking my email I found out my cinnamon star ornaments were featured in a treasury! How cool is that. I have never been featured for anything before in my life. So, this is a great accomplishment for me. I am so honored and delighted that someone thought so highly of one of my items to have them featured in their treasury. The name of the treasury is  A Country Christmas which was posted by Ashton's Attic. Thank you so much sweetheart!

You can see the treasury Here.
