I will be really busy until Christmas, so I wanted to make sure I wished you all a very Merry Christmas & a Blessed New Year!! I'd also like to thank all of you for your continued support of our work. I've met many new people on line this year & at the show. It's been a wonderful year for us, and I am looking forward to whatever the new year brings. God Bless You ALL!! ~~Jackie

Well, usually every year I go and buy graham crackers, frosting, and a bunch of candy, and the kids make a little gingerbread house from scratch, but his year I saw a really cute little kit at the store, so I decided to go that route instead this year. We only have the 3 younger girls at home now, and the oldest (Courtney) is 17 & wasn't too into it this year, so while I was wrapping some gifts last night the 2 youngest (Hillary~11 & Gracie~9) dove into putting it together and decorating it. I think they did a pretty good job, don't you?? Usually we like to "display" their art work, but this year it looked so yummy that I thought....why not let them enjoy it before it gets hard as a rock!! So, after taking some pictures of them with it, I let them rip into it. We still have all the cookie decorating to do, so the fun will continue. Hope you all like seeing the pictures of my 2 littlest artists. Blessings~~Jackie

Well, the show is over and we had such a great time!! Max and Candy sure do know how to put on an awesome show!! They are such sweet and wonderful gals!! We only managed to get a couple of shots of our booth, and sadly none of the others, but I can tell you that they were all absolutely wonderful!! Perfectly Primitive!! I got to meet a couple new gals from the show only briefly as everyone was so busy with set ups, customers & then breaking everything down again but I did get to put some faces with names ~Susan of "Bittersweet Susan", Donna of "Crickets in the Corn" Faye & Twigs from Mercantile Gatherings, We even got to see some old friends from Wisconsin, and lots of on-line customers!! It was so nice to see my customers in person. What a great bunch of people. Even though it was a bit chilly on the porch, I'd do it again in a heartbeat!! If you have never been to this show, you have no idea what you are missing! Thank you Max & Candy for making this such a wonderful week end for us!!

Derek has been back at making his awesome little Feather Trees!! We will only have a limited quantity this year, so get them while you can!! They are available in our ebay store & on our Picture Trail. They are hand made by Derek right here in the U.S.A. They are about 13~14" tall including the antique blocks they sit on. Each one is unique as no 2 blocks are the same. They are so fun to decorate with, and make great little Christmas gifts!!

WOW, I can't believe it's been a couple of weeks since I last blogged about doing the Simple Goods Show!! I have been very busy trying to keep up with orders, updates, and getting things put away for the show. Not to mention all the things that go with having 4 kids still at home. Some days I am just plain tired out!! I've always loved to be challenged though, so even though things are a little hectic around here, I am having so much fun making new things, and even making more of the old things. My oldest will be moving back to WI. on Thursday, so I will have the house all to myself during the day again, which will be nice...no more fighting for the use of the computer! I will miss her terribly, but at least she will be back with good friends, and close to my one & only son.
As for Oct. updates, I am pretty sure that I will be putting an "on vacation" sign up on Lemon Poppy Seeds until the show is over. I will try to put a few things onto my Picture Trail again soon, though. Here is a little peek at one of my new items that I've been working on. Blessings until next time~~Jackie

Even though we have been busy moving and unpacking, I did manage to get some new things listed on Lemon Poppy Seeds for the 15th of the month update. We had "Christmas in July" for a theme, so I whipped up a few smaller things. Just click on the link to see what I came up with. I do have to say that they are so much better in person!!

On Saturday we actually got about an inch of snow here in TN. Back in WI. where we used to live, they have received record snowfalls this year. The girls were so excited and ran out to play in the snow before it all disappeared. This is what my daughter Hillary made. Isn't it cute?? It is sitting inside a birdhouse on a table on our porch.

Last week end we took a little ride into the mountains. It was a beautiful day and we had tons of fun!! I got a couple of pictures I thought I would share of the scenery. (Someday I will have to learn how to use my photo-editing software!!)

About 15 years ago, my hubby bought me a little scroll saw for Christmas (yes, I asked for that) and I started making small wooden items. About a year later, I decided that I wanted to learn to sew, so I bought a used sewing machine for $50.00. It took me about 3 hours just to figure out how to thread it!! I started out by making stark white dolls with raffia hair!! Remember those?? Since then I have gradually gotten more primitive, and as you can tell by looking at my work now...I love to make black folk art dolls.
I have been fortunate enough to mainly stay at home taking care of my 5 children. I did work at a daycare for about 5 years, but was able to take the 2 youngest ones with me while the others were in school. I love being able to be at home so I can always be there when my family needs me.
I am the 6th child of 7 growning up mostly on 40 acres in Central WI. We recently moved to Eastern Tn. I have to say, that I love winters in TN.!!
In my spare time, I love to go to junk stores and antiquing. I am always on the look out for some little treasure to work into my art. I love the primitve style. I hardly ever buy anything that is without some kind of flaw. I love to imagine who it was that built the cupboard, sewed the little dress, etc.
Last, but certainly not least, I am a born-again Christian. I certainly have not always walked the perfect walk, but I believe God loves me in spite of myself. If it wasn't for having God in my life, I wouldn't be where I am today. He deserves all the credit for my success. God gave the gift~~He deserves the glory!!
Now~~ to tag 5 friends~~ I tag....Starla, Jenny, Lori, Lorraine & Wendy.

It has been cold and rainy here in East TN. We even had a dusting of snow the other day, so I have been staying inside trying to get a jump on my Spring & Summer items for 2008. I have been working on pillows, ornies, rabbits and dolls. Here are a couple of new items I have on ebay right now.
Friday, January 11, 2008
These are my new pillows that I've been working on. They are so much fun to make. Shown are my Washington and Lincoln pillows. I am also working on some Rabbit and Sheep pillows. I just love them!! I stuffed them with sawdust, and they look and feel so great!!
