Finally got to Meet!

Today I finally got to meet Susie of Yankee Lane Primitives in person! We had a great day with perfect weather. We ended up going "junkin'" at Goodwill, a large Flea Market & the Salvation Army. Both of us found some great things and I am sure you will be seeing most of the items in creations very soon. We also had a great lunch at my favorite Mexican restaurant. We ended the day with a visit at my home and she got to meet Michelle and some of her friends. When I took Susie back to town to her vehicle I had to fit Jessica with a dress that I am making for her. So Susie got to meet both the girls and Jessica's fiance, Seth. LOL, of course the kids had more laundry to send home with me! (They live in a small apartment and have no room for a washer/dryer.) I had a great time, Susie, I hope you did too!

I am exhausted so I'm off to bed!

God Bless!

It's that time of the Month! LOL

For Country Fried Primitives launch that is! I have finished three new items, and I am still working on the fourth. I think it has been all the birds singing and that spring smell in the air that inspired me to make birdhouses this time. I know you will love all three of them! The item I am still working on is a wooden pedistal bowl that I am painting a floral design on. Here are a few pics of the birdhouses. Look closely at the last 2 houses they are made out of bricks!

Work is still keeping me so very busy, limiting my time for crafts, but that is ok too. I will always manage to find a little time to make something! LOL, when you love something you can always fit it in!

Michelle's last day of school is the 20th already! She is anxious to have some fun with her friends.

A Special Order

I just wanted to share some pics of a Special Order that I have recently finished. The Gerber spoon, which was her children's, & the knife are the clients. The spoon was very difficult due to the size. I like to put a lot of detail in my paintings, so I found this was a challenge.

Michelle is feeling better, thank goodness! She even went to school everyday this week and managed to go all day. What a trooper. She has even managed to bring her grades back up in a weeks time. She is so intelligent!

I also wanted to share a pic of Michelle's cat, Sassy, in her usually lazy self position! LOL

I guess that's all for now...I had better get back in the craft room!

God Bless,
