Wednesday Giveaway Drawing...


I am really excited to have my own new shop even if it is in cyberspace. However, I am also excited about things that some of my friends are doing. My friend Michelle and I have known each other for a long time. This is a picture of us and some of our other good friends at my 7th birthday party (I think 7th). (I am wearing blue and standing in the very back & Michelle is wearing the patchwork dress.) We have enjoyed visiting about the things we like to make over the phone for some time. And, we have worked out the some of the bugs in the Etsy adventure together. This is Michelle's new Etsy Shop. She has another cute doll over there & notice, some of you that have asked before, that here are her darling felted stuffed animals. And here are some of her lovely folk art paintings that she has listed on Ebay.
The drawing today is for the Peter and the Starcatchers book, this little fairy box, and this darling doll made by Michelle.
Truly it's all about the importance of creativity and imagination... even if you have to be a grown up nowadays... Remember that the giveaways are going through Friday & I will be including some of our other talented friends as well. I am posting this entry early and you are free to comment on this post and thus enter the contest as soon as you see it. I can't get up early enough for some of you East Coasters... and I don't want anyone to miss their chance at this giveaway... Good Luck!!! (Make sure to comment by Midnight EST)
Camille... You are Teusday's Winner!!!

A Favorite Product...


Even though I have a water softener... hard water can be a problem in the kitchen/dishwasher. If you deal with that at all, ie. spots on the glasses or even a yucky smell in the glassware or even an in-efficient dishwasher... this stuff is the solution. You won't believe it and I promise no one is paying me to say that. I just stumbled over a blog that was talking about cleaning the dishwasher and remembered how I used to think about that before I found this stuff. You can also mix it with water and make a solution that will completely clean up hard water deposits in the shower etc.. It smells great too!

Afternoon light in the studio...

These are the boxes that I have been working on lately.
These don't have finish on them yet...
however.. they almost photograph better without. These above have finish...
Don't you love how the afternoon light comes in bathes the room in this beautiful light, highlighting my mini-plastic lawn ornaments... :)
