A Joyful Day

Well, here is another day. I just came back from Williamsburg, Va. and it is the most scenic drive. I just love it. I have a space in a shop in Williamsburg, called Country Treasures. Its a beautiful shop. The woman that decorates the shop has a gift of decorating which you cannot believe. She makes everything so magical looking and homey. You just want to spend your time in there. If your ever in the Williamsburg area, make sure you go by the Williamsburg Pottery, because the shop is there in the front part of the Pottery on Route 60. You will love it. I will try to take some pictures and post.

I've posted a picture of my space there, hope you enjoy. I will get pictures of the rest of the shop soon. Have a great time in the Lord. Stay safe. And Keep on Blogging.

A New Day

Well, I'm here trying to write something creative so people would like to read about me and what I create. I do many things. I love the world of primitives in wood, paper mache, cloth dolls, vintage prims, you name it and I love the prim world. It is so warm and friendly, it just takes you back to another era in our history. I think we all long for that time in the past when things were more simple, friendlier and people just looked out for one another.

I love creating those primitive signs, and making all of my creations look old looking so thay look like they have been stored in the attic for years. I have this desire to go into old houses and go into the attics and see what old stuff can be found. That to me is treasure hunting.

I'm really new to this blogging but I will catch on. I have lots of things to share just need to develop the ideas. I have 2 daughters and 1 son that was taken home to be with the Lord in
1997 at the age of 30. He had the great laugh that you could hear in a room full of people. I just loved to hear him laugh. I took it for granted and now long to hear that laugh again but he is sharing it with all the angles in heaven. My son had 1 daughter who is now 19 years old. My 2 daughters both have 2 daughters each and one daughter has a set of twins 3 years old. My other daughter has 2 daughters 16 and 18. Big difference but they are 11 years apart in age. Both of my daughters are my best friends. But guess what neither of them like prim and neither really like crafts. So all of my years crafting is not being passed on. Well maybe the grandkids will take a interest.

January 28, 2008

Well I am not a writer, but I wanted to give this a try. To begin I'm a mother, grandmother, and a wife to a wonderful man. We've been married for 34 years. We have had alot of up and downs, but alot of wonderful family memories. I'm so thankful that God brought us together. Life though is full of ups and downs, but we have a friend who is there to help us get through them and his name is Jesus, I sure hope people reading this know Him personally and if you don't email me and I would be glad to share Him with you. He's my Savior and He's waiting to be yours, if your willing to open the door and let Him into your life.

I also do primitive crafts, sell on ebay and have a web site. I have a small space in a shop in
Williamsburg, Virginia where I put my primitive crafts to sell. I use to do crafts shows all around
the area. I love crafts, stayed home and took care of my children and worked on crafts to help make ends meet when most mothers where working. I enjoyed every minute of it. Would do it
all over again, just explore more of what crafts where out there for me to do. I would tell mothers today explore and find the right ninch for you and don't give up. Money can be made in the craft business you just have to keep looking and reexamining what your doing.
