New Year’s Resolution

Happy New Year to all of you! As with a lot of people, I make up resolutions each New Year only to leave them forgotten by the wayside as we get into January. This year I hope to keep one of my resolutions, and that is to be more active on this blog. Sadly, months pass between my postings. I am going to try to be more active in posting this year, as well as adding a little more spark by including more recipes, helpful hints, maybe some tutorials, more giveaways….

I will begin here by sharing a recipe I came across that I am looking forward to trying…it looks so warm and comforting! Perfect for a cold winters day or maybe as part of a Superbowl spread perhaps….I will let you know how it turns out and would love to hear from you if you’ve tried it..



I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend! Until next time, sending primitive hugs and blessings to you!

Ahead Of The Times

Well, here in Michigan we are still waiting on some real spring weather to visit us. It has been pretty cold and gloomy here despite the calendar telling us we are already well into April. Despite the weather, I have been busy getting some summer and Americana prims done. As many crafters know, you always have to stay a season ahead. That way people can buy and decorate with the items for the upcoming holidays. I always have to laugh that I paint Easter bunnies while I’ll humming jingle bells and am making Christmas ornaments on Labor day…

Thought I’d share a couple of things I’ve been working on with you. Haven’t had a chance to list them on Etsy or my website yet.

I just love how these stacked stars turned out! They were a pattern by Thymeless Treasures. The preserved Sweet Annie smells so good!

And this is a new Americana door hanger that I designed…It can be hung or propped up in a display.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a blessed Sunday!

Spring Sheep

Good Morning!

Just wanted to share a sweet little sheep spindle bobbin I’ve recently finished. Like a lot of my creations, it is very sweet and simple. He is about 14″ tall and would be a wonderful piece to display all year round.

Still waiting for it to warm up here in Michigan…it seems like spring has forgotten us this year! My little nephew and I are going to do Easter eggs today so it will be a lot of fun. Hope everyone has a blessed Easter as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord!

Easter Treats

It’s hard to believe, but Easter is just around the corner already…Along with anxiously waiting to work in the yard, I am really looking forward to trying out some new Easter and Spring recipes. I found this cookie recipe today that I wanted to share. They are simple really but their spring colors are soooo pretty!


One great idea that one of my many wonderful sisters-in-laws came up with was an Easter cookie decorating party. We got all of the nieces and nephews together the day before Easter and she hosted an Easter Egg and Cookie Decorating party. We did this for several years and it was so much fun. We also all had lunch together and we all had Easter eggs and cookies to take home. And it was a wonderful way to spend time with our growing family as well!

And of course I want to share with you some calorie-free Easter treats as well…if you click on the photos you can view them in my Etsy shop:

Until next time, hope everyone has a wonderful, blessed day!
