Newest Creations Heading to Lancaster PA

Hi all,

Well the bunny invasion as ended and it was one amazing ride. I made 65 bunny jars in all over a 2 month spand. I still have 12 extra which I divided up and gave to family members for Easter. Now it's time to work on Americana and new prim dolls

So I've made three new items: Here is my Uncle Sam Jar

This is Abagail and her Sheep

This is my Annie and her Sheep with Prim Light

I'm hoping the Uncle Sam jars will take off like the bunnies did but we will see. I still want to make a few more prim dolls and then it's time for Christmas. Yes, I know it sounds crazy but Christmas in July is big in Lancaster which means lots of snowmen! Well I'm off to update my site and also check on etsy. Until next time.. :-)

Good evening,

I finally got a chance to blog alittle before going to bed. I've been working on my second order of bunny candy jars for Lancaster, Pa. Here are my bunnies all tagged and ready to go. Two boxes were shipped out today! Now I have to work the orders from my job and also my nieces want their bunnies too. :-)

Spring Crafts


I've been so busy with my wholesale that I haven't had much time for blogging...shame on me. :-) Hope everyone is doing well and getting those creative ideas done and ready for the spring shows. I have considered doing a spring show in March but it would only leave me about two weeks to get things completed. So instead of stressing over it, I'm going to concentrate only on my site and the wholesale. I'm always trying to do too much and have to remind myself that I'm not superwoman (all though the outfit would look great on me)lol

Here is what I've been working on so far for my wholesale with Keystone Cash & Carry in Lancaster, PA. I made 34 bunny candy jars and within 2 days sold 15 of them. Which means it's back to making more asap! Here is a peek of the bunnies with red & green homespun fabric and also the spring thyme print.

I also made some prim wood lights and some bunnies:

Here is my booth at Keystone:

I still have alot of work to do in order for my booth to look full but at least it's a start. :-) Happy Crafting!

Nearly Sold Out!

Hi all

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back with the outcome of the show I just finished. It nearly wore me out and I needed time to recoupe. I spent 4 days up in Richmond and I'm happy to report...THE SHOW WAS GREAT!! I couldn't believe the crowd and they were buying! I found a great motel to stay at which was near everything and I even had time to shop at hobby lobby alittle after the show on Saturday. This is a show worth doing and I plan to do their spring show next year!

There was a crowd waiting on Friday to shop and I hardly had time to even run to the ladies room. I have to thank my fellow neighbors who helped out during break time when the slow periods did happen (but they were far and few between. Here is a peek at some of my neighbors work. :-)

Here is what my booth looked like before the set up

Here is what my booth looked like with all my crafts added. I also decided to put in a tree for 25 of my santa oranments and I sold all of them! There were about 8 mini gingerbread that I made just for added decoration for my check out table and customers wanted to buy them. The biggest seller was snowmen!
