A precious gift ~

That's what it is you know.
A new year is such a wonderful gift!!!
And it's up to us to decide what we will do with this precious gift.

On this new year's eve I am so very thankful.

This new year is given to us to do with what we choose.

We can make this coming year wonderful, positive, healthy, productive,
loving, artistic, lucrative, caring and so much more...
IF we choose to, it's up to us.

Merry Christmas-time and a few gifts for you!

Are you ready???
Christmas is just a week away now!
We've had a relatively stress-free season this year and
I really like it!

Our boys decided to draw names as our family is growing.
With five sons then add on spouses and significant others
it's really growing quickly!
So with each of us having just one name,
it has really been so easy this year.
Of course, we're all buying for the babies, Clara and Murray.
Plus this takes so much of the emphasis off of "things" but
places it back on just enjoying each other!

I'm having a "Make it for Christmas" Sale in my Etsy Shop!!
Starting now through Sunday evening (Dec. 20th) at midnight,
everything in my Etsy store is 50% OFF!!!

Simply type MERRYCHRISTMAS in the coupon code box
when checking out from my Etsy store
to receive 50% OFF your entire purchase!

You have time to make some one-of-a-kind gifts for your loved ones
this weekend, why not let me help with one of my step-by-step
photographed tutorials? Materials lists are included with each one.

Here's the link to my store so you can take a peek:

More gifts!!! A few beautiful images that I've collected over the years.

to use as Christmas tags for your gifts!

Wishing you a wonderful and very creative weekend precious friends!

hugs and love,

You know I love you, right?

I mean it.
Because of you...
because you appreciate my little creations...
buy my simple little tutorials...
I was able to purchase a NEW COMPUTER!!!

I'm so, so very grateful and thankful!
And, y'all...
I'd been using the same computer since 2008 and
just didn't realize how slow that baby had become.

I did have a back-up hard drive but hadn't backed it up in
years so I possibly have lost a ton of images and photos.
But I also purchased an encasement for that old hard drive
and my son is going to take it out,
put it in the new encasement and see if it will be accessible.
He's thinking it was the fan in the old one that blew.

Oh well, you don't care about all that!
But I still just wanted to thank all my friends and customers
for helping me get a new computer so I am back in business!

In other news...

We went to the North Georgia mountains last weekend
to visit my precious mama and daddy. Good grief I love it up there!

In the studio?
I'm working on a transformed treasure box!
I'm adding a beautiful antique image on the top and
embellishing with lace and trinkets.
I'll share soon!!

I hope you are doing so, so good!
Thank you always for stopping by to see me
sweet friends.

hugs and love,

'Tis a sad day for this old blogger ~

It finally happened.
My good ol' faithful computer gave up the ghost last night.
I've been so, so sad all day.
For the past almost nine years I've been blogging and
used that wonderful old thing.
I had files on it from 2008!!!
I do have an external hard drive that I pray has been backed up
recently enough ~ so many photographs, images and files.

I need to be proactive and get busy generating some cash to buy a new tower.

I've decided to have a SALE in my Etsy store!
Everything is 25% OFF until further notice.
Simply type SAVE25 in the Coupon Code box when checking out
to receive 25% off your entire order.

Here is the link to my shop if you'd like to take a peek ~

Now, to get busy making some new goodies to list!!!

And the precious elf/fairy shoes below were created using my tutorial
by a sweet blog friend and artist Jeanne Marie!

I guess I'd better stop pouting and get busy!!!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to ~

Making these sweet pockets a little more special!

I decided that my new pocket creations do not need to be naked!
SO...I've stuffed each and every one with some of my favorite treasures.

They've been filled with antique ephemera, antique photographs, vintage baby shoes,
 vintage jewelry bits and more.
They really do look so beautiful stuffed full!

So here are photos of these babies now!

Now you can truly see their full potential!
You can find them all in my Etsy store now ~

Happy weekend angels!!!

hugs and love,
