In The News

So today I was in the newspaper for my etsy shop!! It was a pretty good article! It was nice that the picture on the front page of the Home & Garden section was big, but it was kind of dark and you could hardly make out my items that I had made in front of me. :( Oh is a link to the newspaper article

Listed this WELCOME sign that I made out of muslin and cotton batting on etsy late last night.

Something New

Finished up this door hanger yesterday and listed it on etsy. Been busy working on my patterns and getting more things listed on etsy. It's so exciting to see more and more primitive crafters joining etsy. I have joined a great group on etsy called Old Farmhouse Gathering. We are a group of artisans who create anything from primitive to shabby chic with a old fashioned flair. The group is growing everyday because so many crafters are moving to etsy.

Folk Art Bird

I finished up this guy today and listed him on etsy. Let's see how well it does. For some reason I can't stop making birds! LOL Maybe because I look at them all day on the bird feeder that I have on my window! The Goldfinches are starting to get their bright yellow feathers. They are the ones that have been at my feeder the most this winter.

3 little birdies

These are some bird ornies that I have been making for quite a few years now. Thought I would make up a batch and sell them on etsy. Sales have been picking up on etsy lately! Yay!! Finally feeling like I am getting back into the creative mode now, after a big break.

Primitive Crow Make Do

Just newly listed on etsy, is this sweet little crow make do. He sits on a old wooden textile bobbin with a little bit of rusty star garland wrapped around the base. I think he is so sweet with his little sparkly star hanging from his beak.
