Now that I've got my feet back under me...

Geesh...I've once again neglected my blog! Now that all the craziness of Christmas is over, hopefully I can once again get back to posting at least once a week...we shall see! I was VERY busy this year with spring, summer and holiday shows. My holiday shows were a success, especially Holiday Handmade put on each year by Fancy Tiger. I only have a few shots of my booths and I am hoping I can get those posted soon.

So not only has my blog been neglected but my etsy shops have suffered too. Today, I finally got some new goodies posted in Lani's Vintage.

Aren't those just the CUTEST little rubber critters you've ever seen? If I still had little ones, these would be staying with me to decorate the nursery! I also listed this great industrial storage cabinet.

If you can't live without any of these things...then hurry over and snatch them up!

The CUTEST Memory Box!

First off...I know, I know it has been a long time since I've done a sorry! I can't promise that I will be better at posting on a regular basis, but I will certainly try to be better!

A few weeks ago a darling little gal came into the gallery in Eads (Artists Of The Plains) to have a peek around. I wasn't working that day, but my wonderful friend Lil was, and she is always so kind to tell customers about my memory boxes that I make (I made 5 for her last year as Christmas gifts for her girls)! So anyways, she showed this gal and she loved them! She then contacted me about doing two custom ones for her. I just LOVE the way they turned out, here is a peek at one of them (she asked me not to post the other one, as it is a gift).

She loved them so much that she even made it her facebook profile picture! I've had lots of inquires about them now and I'm hoping I will have lots more memory boxes to make soon! Let me know if you are interested in one and I will get you a quote. :)

Now Accepting Credit / Debit Cards!

With the holiday shopping season fast approaching, I've decided to start accepting credit / debit cards at my shows. Often times I will have a customer ask if I take credit / debit cards and when I would tell them "no", they would then have to go hunt down an ATM to get some cash...some would return to make the purchase and some would not. I am really excited to see if this will boost my sales...I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Now available in my etsy shop Objects Of Affection!

P.S. The pretty green flowers on the necklace are actually shoe clips that are available from my friend Mandy's shop on etsy, go get yours today at Fern And Sprout!

Puddle Play!

We have been getting quite a lot of rain in our area this spring and fall, which is really wonderful considering we live in a farm / ranch area! The grass is tall for sure. The other day after we got a good soaking, the kids went to play in the puddles. They really had a blast splashing, dancing and goofing around!
