Broom Corn Doll on Etsy

I've just listed this sweet broom corn doll over on my Etsy store... isn't she a cutie?

I'm liking Etsy more and more these days. If the Sellers are tagging their items well, you'll be able to search for items with all kinds of keywords like Primitive, or Folk Art, or Prairie Doll. Simply type what you want to look for in the search bar.... I also like the Time Machine 2 feature. You can see what's just been listed.

If you click on some of the hyper links I just did, you'll be able to see some of the searches I'm talking about. Also, you can click on the pictures below to visit my Etsy store.

Back to crafting!

HA! Take that you Alien!

As you all know, I own an Alien that looks just like a Female Teenager...

Truth be told, she's a pretty good kid for the most part. She goes to College full time... works hard at her job that she's had for a couple years now.

BUT... then there's 'those' times when she behaves JUST like an Alien! (don't they all sometimes?) LOL

A Dear Friend of mine, Blondie of Vintage Primitives, made me these GREAT signature tags to "Make me Smile" as she put it.

They make me laugh!

Thank you Miss Blondie!!!!!! Big Huggles to you :)

I'm thinking cooler weather!

It's in the constant 90's here in Kentucky these days, so I'm going to turn this, already hot summer into something else! Yes yes yes.... I'm getting that itch for crafting winter items.

... also thinking of a good snow covering would sure feel good right about now. LOL!

Hmmm I wonder if it'll be another year of last minute shopping, or will I get on that earlier this year.... let's hope I'm on time at least!

Every Morning... Every Single Morning.....

Trying to wake this dog up is like trying to wake up an Alien Teenager!

I guess I'll just throw the covers back over her head and get to work for a bit....

This life of Riley is something else isn't it?

TODAY! June 9th! 5pm! You are invited to TEA!

Today at 5pm our door will open for your viewing pleasure... and please take my word for it, there is some wonderful items being offered by some of the most amazing Artisans. I'm so proud to be a small part of it!

Just so I don't give away too much of a preview, below are some peeks at what I'll be offering. A hint at one item: Broom Corn. I planted it, watered it, harvested it and dried it over the winter. Now I'm creating with it!

About Broom Corn: So the legend goes, that in 1725, Benjamin Franklin picked a small seed on a whisk broom that a friend had brought him from France for dusting his beaver hat. The next spring he planted that seed and it grew into a tall corn-like plant with a flowering brush of stiff fibers bearing seeds.

In 1781 Thomas Jefferson listed broomcorn as one of the six most important crops of the day.

*and a small side note: Riley the wonder dog is doing fabulous with her holistic recovery!

She's up to 3, 20 minute work outs a day now, without blowing her knee out. And I just know she's lost a little weight because I've had to tighten her harness twice over these last couple weeks. Weigh in will probably be next week to see just how much she's lost!
