Sweet Eye Candy Cupcake Picks

Hi All!

So this weekend I have been so busy in the craft room again! I EVEN broke out the serger today and made a FLea Market Cart Liner. Look for info on that item come next week!

Anyhoo! I have had some great ideas come to me this weekend-Can I say I just love it when that happens!!! I have been so busy on many projects-last count was 8 diffrent projects. I can NEVER complete one from start to finsih I jump around from project to project!

Well I got these little gems done. They are my new Cupcake Picks-All handmade-no mass production here! I think these are so "sweet" They feature a cute vintage bunny, that I have glittered (in just the right spots) millinery findings, and vintage seam binding ribbons. I think they are adorable!

So many uses orignial use of cupcake picks, altered art, collage, party favors, embellishment, all kinds of things. The best part is I am looking at making coordinating pieces like garlands, nut cups, tags, and such.

Hope you all like, just wanted to share!

Talk Soon,

Spring is Here!!

Well, it has finally arrived, SPRING! I love Spring. I love EASTER too! The soft pastel colors, the bunnies, baby chicks and baby ducks at the Farm store-awwww. We alwyas bring some home each Spring. I will post pictures of ours soon! They will arrive at our house mid April.

The crocus are popping out, the dafidols and tulips will be next. I hear the birds each morning that is a welcome sound.

Spring is also the time of year that is the most busy for me with school. So my post will be few during the next few weeks. I will try to at least post once a week.

I have been very busy in the craft room with new projects! I can't wait to show you all of the new suprises! Summer delights are coming soon too!

Hugs to all--Talk Soon,

A Peek at my Craft Room

Hello All!

I hope this blog post finds all of you doing well!

I miss posting!


The weather this weekend makes me think that Spring maybe arriving soon. I saw sweet Robin's in the yard too--so one can only hope!

I opened the shaes in my craft room-which is hooked to my bedroom, old farmhouse-long story!

But none the less I have a very large room that I am able to craft in (I am so thankful for that)

It was a bit messy so I "picked" up just a bit. I cannot "clean" it or I will never find anything again! It looked nice so I took a few pictures for you all to see. Yes the walls are a bright hot pink (yeah for pink!) it was that way when we moved in. My hubby bought me some black foam mats for me to stand on when crafting-easier on the feet. Thank-you Doug!

Floor is wood, needs redone. Curtains are lace. And lots and lots of shelves and storage bins!

I works great for me!

Till next time,

And the Winner is......................................

Hello All!

I am assuming most of you thought I fell off the Earth as I have not posted in a very long time. I am still here and busy as ever, hense the reason why I have not posted. The kids are busy with mid-winter activities, I have a Senior who is running for Fair Queen, trying to get into colleges and applying for scholarships. Trying to create for Etsy and being a teacher with conferences this last week, so life has been crazy!

I wanted to thank-you ALL for posting comments here on my blog about my Etsy store and what you all are really liking and not liking. It helped me out so much! I hope to keep creating unique and lovely items that you all like. I also hope to keep offering vintage and new supplies as those too are a big hit.

I have some bad news. I was hoping to open my very own website in March, and I am sad to say it has been postponed to June. I am still working on finding the perfect graphic designer for the site and the perfect web host. I will keep you updated at to when this dream will come to fruition.

The winner for the blog Give-a-way is Amy of Bunny Rose Cottage! Little Miss Abbie (one of my daughters) picked her name from all of those who posted. Amy be patient with me as your items will be going out this next weekend.

I hope this post finds all of you doing well, and I look forward to blogging again with you real soon!
