Some of my "Treasures"!

Here is a picture taken at my first show last year. I've been crafting full time now for about 17 years. Doing 6 craft shows a year keeps me busy all year long preparing! I couldn't do all the setting up and tearing down for a craft show without the help of my sister Christa! We have meet so many nice people along the way and have made some great memories. In this picture you will see the craftsmanship of my husband. He makes all my wooden items and I do the painting and distressing. The 3 bin shelf you see pictured here is one of my favorites from last year! He used old wainscotting from a barn that was being torn down. Hanging beside the shelf are old barrel staves, from the barn, that I painted and added a wire flower holder. Even added some primmed up flowers to the holder. Below the shelf is a small 6 drawer box which sold real well too.

Getting started

I'm so excited about joining the blogging world. I will start out by posting some of my"treasures" that I've been working on. January and February have been spent filling wholesale orders..... with that almost complete I will have the time to start creating some new items for my upcoming shows. For Valentine's Day I had made up some pillows using a wonderful design from my good friend Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives.

Also, I will be adding many new mini pillows to my site over the next few weeks. I'm using doodles from the very talented Twigs from Twigs N Sprigs. Here is a pic of some I made up for her. I so enjoy sitting in the evenings stitching these little pillows. I now have my sister hooked on stitching too. She helps me out when I get overloaded!
