Winner of the picture contest receives a prize, PLUS, if the winner has a business, an button ad for the month of April.

We hope you stop in and stay awhile, we look forward to sharing our passion for primitives with all of you. See you on March 1st!

I've submitted a fun little article regarding the dangers of Primitive Crafting. And if you know me, you'll know how I've ummm, learned about some of these dangers! (ya ok, some are pretty funny) hahaha.

Here's a LITTLE sneak peak of my article:

Dear Diary,

When I woke this morning, I immediately checked my middle finger on my left hand to see if that Udder Cream had actually worked as I heard it would. YES! My finger is healed almost completely!

For those of you who know what I'm talking about... my quilt is coming along nicely, thank you very much! AND mind you... not one drop of blood on it yet!

For those of you who do NOT know what in the world I'm talking about.... Udder Cream? Like in Cow Udders? oh yes... did you hear me? I said YES like Cows Udders! When you milk cows, those udders can get so very sore... poor cow. So the best medicine is a cream made special for the irritation and raw rubbing on their poor little udders. Well... when you quilt, you're constantly poking your finger that stays on the underside of the Quilt, sometimes until your finger bleeds. Hence: One Sore Finger! Udder Cream to the rescue! Now I can continue onward, destroying my finger for yet another day (I have a whole tub of this cream so I can self inflict wounds on my fingers for a long time! Or... milk a lot of happy cows)

.... wanna read more? Run over to The Olde Prairie Register and put your name on the sign up. There's Give Away's and contests and FREE stuff!


On another little note, I've updated my Poppy Shop today. I've put more of my mini boxes and this good size penny rug up for offer. Check out the other Poppy Shops while you're there!

Blessings, Jean :)

I know what that cream is! I live in the heart of farm country in Susquehanna County, PA! My dad swears by Cornhuskers too! Oh, and Bag Balm! (yep, named after the "bags" on the cow!)

What a nice trip down memory lane!
