How Are You All Today??!!

I’m doing pretty good, even though we woke up this morning with dreaded snow on the ground!!!

Not any major amount, about an inch or so, I would guess.

But still more than I want!! :)

Any way, so I have spent my day taking care of some website sales, getting items packaged and ready to mail out.

Took some time to renew my subscription to Mercantile Gathering.  And made some other online purchases.

I have started on two more bears but it will be a few days before they are finished.  Yes, I'm a little slow!!

But only work on them, when I'm in the mood.

If I try to force myself, I am never happy with the result.

So I just take it slow. :)


A few weeks ago I entered a pattern giveaway at Sweet Meadows Farm Blog. 

I was one of the lucky winners to receive a free pattern.  My choice of any of her wonderful patterns.

Here is the one I chose.

I know Christmas is way over, but I absolutely LOVE this pattern.

Of course, all of Maureen’s patterns are awesome.

She is one of my all time favorite artist!!

I own sooooo many of her patterns.  They are addicting.

I was also the lucky winner of a wonderful prim bunny by Marcy.

Look at this adorable bunny that arrived a couple of days ago.

Look how pretty it is!!

I have also hung my small collection of old flags on this peg rack.

The two on the end were purchased off of FB.

They are 49 star flags.

I've been doing some tweaking here in my bedroom.

I struggle so much with this one space.

I just cant seem to get it to look right!!

I cant wait for my Mom to make my fireplace for this wall.

She is waiting for warmer weather then she will start.

Hurry up Warmer Weather!! :)

But here is the tweaking I have done and what it looks like for right now.

I also did some tweaking on the top of one section of kitchen cabinets.

It looked way too cluttered up there.

So I attempted to simplify it some.

Here are some Before and After photos.

I think I like it without the berry garland.

To me, it has more of a cleaner look up there.

Before it was just too much.

Who knows?? Hubby cant even tell I did anything different!! LOL!!


I guess that is it from me for the day.

My mail hasn't arrived yet, so I may be back later if any goodies come in. Hehee!! :)

Until Next Time….

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings To You All!!!

We had to take hubby's mac mini in for a check up today so I "tried" to do some craft supply shopping but ended up mostly empty handed. Whenever I'm looking for something specific I can never find it! Oh well, the search continues.

I like your bedroom. I can't wait to see it with the fireplace. You're so lucky to have a crafty mom.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Monday will be here before we know it.
