Good Morning Everyone

Well, my inlaws are on the way down from PA today, I sure hope that have a safe trip, always worry about them driving especially in the winter, last check in they are just south of Greensburg and driving through freezing rain. I pray that their travels are safe.....

Anyone made their New Year's resolutions yet? I hate to make them because I always seem to break them. I am just gonna say that I am going to do a major overhaul of my lifestyle come January 1st. I have really not taken care of myself like I should this past year, and I am not a spring chicken anymore so its time to start I would say. I am gonna start small weekly goals for myself and see what comes from them. Wish me luck.

I have started making some salt dough ornies/bowl fillers this week. I saw some really neat ones on a fellow blogger, And Baby Makes Five. And I said you know I am gonna give them and try and they are so easy, just taking a break from them cleaning for the visit, and will get back to them after my inlaws head back home Monday.

well I have to get back to work, last day of this year workwise.... yipppeee

Happy New Year !!!

Very Nice Peaceful Sunday

This has been a very nice peaceful Sunday, very relaxing. Not alot done craft wise but went to a new church with my daughter, who was invited by her new boyfriend, and met his family and saw alot of ppl I know just never knew they went to the same church. It was a great service with awesome music, and it made my daughter happy to be able to spend time with her guy. She has hung out with him all day and now they have gone the youth group gathering at the church til 7pm.
I am so blessed!
God be with you all today.

Tommorrow is my Mom's Surgery

She has a place on her arm that after years of it being there finally had it checked and it's Basal Cell Carcinoma, so it will be removed tommorrow. I pray it is not too deep and that just the removal will be enough, that she won't need radiation or chemo. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Be Blessed!

November 1st....

been awhile, and I am sorry for that. Things have been hectic around here. But this is my favorite time of the year and I am so excited about decorating right now. I love the rich colors of fall, when the leaves are changing and the temps drop..
I am working right now on making some crochet balls to first, fill either my dough bowl with pine inside or to fill a glass jar I have with a rusty lid. I have the LionBrand yarn (Vanna's Choice) in the colors of Evergreen, Honey, Rust, Brick and Chocolate. And I making basic crochet chains and then gluing them to styrofoam balls I have had for awhile.
I must say I am very pleased so far, had a moment last nite with the hot glue .... as well all do, but I won the battle. I will post pics when I have them all completed, 2 more to go.

Hope you all are loving this weather ....

real dried sunflower heads? I have a dough bowl I would like to put them in.

Hope everyone is well, I have had my abdmonial u/s this morning and now we wait to hear back from the dr for the results.
I am very sore, as they had to push really hard with the wand to see what they needed to see and now I am really aching.
But afraid to take pain meds cause who knows what I have that will do damage to my liver, need a meeting with the dr to find out what to take and what not to take.

Gonna go do some laundry and try and get into the mood to go in the craft room and do some Christmas ornies.

Weather finally cooling down

it has been cooler and kinda dreary and rainy but to me that is just prime crafting time. I finally got back in my craft room last nite, seems likes its been forever but I needed a break I think after the big push for the show we had over the 4th of July.

I am so excited , I am going on my first all girls primitive gathering weekend this weekend. I am leaving out Friday morning bright and early and driving up to stay with one of my internet besties that I have know for awhile online but have never met and I can't wait. Then we will drive over and meet up with the other gals and shop til we drop in Amish country in Berlin OH on Saturday and then I will head back home on Sunday.

I have found some really neat stuff out thrifting that I need to update you all on and show pics.
I am trying to get my head back in the program lol.

I am off now to look at other friends blogs, be Blessed this week.

Sunday July 25 - HOT-HOT-HOT

it is sooo hot out today I am doing all I can to stay in and not have to go out there. I need to be in my craft room but here I am sitting on computer lol. Guess I need to move computer into craft room and then maybe I could get something done ha ha (nah I doubt it).
The countdown is moving closer to the A Primitive Journey Gathering in Berlin OH, and I am so excited. I am staying with a girl I have know only online but we are such good friends, I can't wait, she lives just outside of where all the other gals are staying and we are gonna drive over together and shop with them all day, then hang out at her place Sunday til I have to start back home. I am so excited, gonna meet ladies I have talked to for years, and never dreamed of meeting in person and hanging with them and shopping in the Amish Community, ahhhh a dream come true for me.
I can't wait!!!!!

Well I hope your day is blessed and that you stay cool and relax on the Sunday in July.

Be Blessed

So Its Tuesday July 20th

i am sorry it has been so long since my last post, been wrapped up in quite a few things and just really haven't made time for my blog, so its my fault.
I still haven't take any pics from my thrifting either, sheeeshhh Angie get with it.

I hope you are all having a good day, and doing better at organizing your time lol

I am going to be going to the A Primitive Journey Community Gathering in Berlin, OH the first weekend in August, and I am so excited. I will finally get to meet so many ladies I have only talked to online. And I get to stay with a girl that is one of best online buddies ever. Still working on if I will be spending night at the motel with the rest of the group or going back to my buddies house after our day of shopping. If I stay with her, more money to spend hehehehe

I am also working on a Greensboro Chapter of the A Primitive Journey Community. We will meet once a month and either craft together or thrift/antique/shop together. I think it will be really neat and if you are local to the Greensboro area, let me know and I can point you in the right direction to get signed up. Our first meeting will be August 21st, still working on details of what time and where.

you can email me at or post here if you are interested in joining in.

well time to get back to work, ttyl

A Primitive Journey

ever been to the A Primitive Journey Community? if not u need to go, it is awesome collaboration of like mind crafters and craft lovers for the Primitives we all love. Diane (the director of this community) has come up with an awesome idea. Have you ever thought it would be great to meet up with fellow prim lovers and spend a day either visiting local prim shoppes or thrifting or even sitting around doing a project together? Well that was her idea and she has come up with a new idea. She has gone about setting up Chapters of like mind prim lovers in several different area's largest cities and they will meet once a month on the 3rd Saturday of each month, and have a great time together.
I know for me there are not many ppl that like the primitive look like I do in my city, but there are a couple of gals within a 1-2 hr drive, and I can't wait to get to meet them in person and spend 1 day once a month and have a day of laughs and primitive craft memories to share together.
Who can say they have enough friends? and who of us wouldn't like to hang out with another person or group of ppl that we can share our love of primitives with?
I am so excited and I can't wait til August 21st, the first meeting.

I have signed up to be the local Greensboro, NC director for this chapter. if you are local and Greensboro isn't too far for you to drive, come on and join the group. you have to join the community first and then once accepted you will be signed up for your local chapter.

check it out

Happy Sunday

I hope all have a great Sunday, and relax, refresh and reinvigorate yourself for the week ahead. I still have my son here, but he goes back to his Dad's this afternoon, so we are having brunch right now (French toast, sausage and fresh cantaloupe) and then we will get ready and go to see my Mom after she gets out of church.

I will be back home later, and hope to get in craft room and gets started on some things. Been out of it all weekend, due to son being here and trying to spend some quality time with him.

if you haven't heard of A Primitive Journey Community, go check it out, it is a awesome place and they are setting up local chapters throughout the US and Canada , so that we can have a get together of like prim minds once a month and either go shopping or do some crafting, so many things we can do, and who ever has enough friends? especially ones that love the prim crafting.

Saturday, what to get into today?

Good Morning,
Hope everyone is doing well, and has great plans for the weekend. I got a surprise yesterday, my 16yr old son that stays so busy and doesn't have time to see me much, is here for the weekend. I am so happy to get to spend sometime with him, however that does mean no crafting for me lol. Don't want to waste what little time I have been blessed with , he hasn't been here since Christmas.
on another note, I am totally excited I am signed up to go to a Primitive Gathering in Berlin, OH on the weekend of August 6-8. I have always wanted to go to a gathering but there was always something that came up, however not this time. I am going and it is Amish Country and we are staying there overnight and doing some shopping .... I can't wait, starting my savings right now for my trip.

happy happy happy.....

ok the boys are still sleeping (hubby, son, and puppy) so I am gonna get a few things done around the house, so that the rest of the day I can spend with my guys.

Be Blessed

Stormy Thursday

it is storming something fierce outside but we so need the rain, hope we have some instead of just alot of noise.
Hope you are all doing well, I have found some really cool patterns now to just get started..... come on crafting inspiration!!!!

be blessed


Wednesday, July 7, 2010


well lets begin with the fact I am home today from work, my 4 legged baby, Buford T (our 1 yr old Bassett Hound) got neutered yesterday and I didn't want to leave him home alone in case he reinjured his sutures or if something happened. So I took the day off.
now what to do.... I really should get in to my craft room and do some cleaning and rearranging to get myself ready to get started on my Christmas crafts. So far though, I haven't made it past the computer, lol.
I have been messing around on Facebook, and looking for some new patterns as well. But now I must get my butt in gear and do something productive.

hope you are having a blessed day, it is very hot here today to be over 100 degrees so staying inside as much as possible.

take care and talk soon.

A New Beginning

We are just home from PA and the Ford City Heritage Days Festival over the 4th of July. It was a great time visiting family as well as selling our crafts. We had several people enquire into our online site, (which we had closed due to no interest) so starting today we have reopened it and we will be updating it over the next few days to get it back on track. the site will be . We will also be starting to rebuild stock for a few other shows we have going on in the next several months, as well as for next year's show again.

Any free patterns you know of please send info my way, need new ideas.
