Good Morning Ladies!  Wow, what a busy weekend it was. My youngest daughter Olivia was in the Jr. High production of Charlotte's Web at her school both Friday and Saturday, so of course my husband and I were at both performances.  The kids did a great job and the play was very entertaining.  Olivia really enjoyed performing, which is no surprise, as she has been in many church productions and musicals from a very young age.  She just recently sang in a talent show at the high school and won 3rd place out of 17 acts - not bad for an 8th grader.  She sure keeps us hopping with all the auditions, and play practices, etc. She was a late in life surprise child #5 ... I had her when I was 38, but she keeps me young, and she is such a blessing from God.  I could not ask for any better.

The beautiful weather this weekend allowed alot of work to be done on the shop/building.  We had a crew of helpers to put drywall on the ceiling.  My 77 yr. old dad, my brother-in-law, and my 24 yr. old son, all helped my husband with this rather difficult task.   Windows are in and we now have a real entry door on the building.  Now, my husband can hang the drywall on the walls.  It is coming step at a time.  I just can't wait to get in there and do MY thing!  I have so much to do - painting, wallpapering, and displaying all the wonderful products!!  I know many of you have expressed interest in visiting the shop and I will let you know as soon as I am open for business!
  Thanks for all your support and encouragement.  I truly appreciate it and am so thankful for this business and the opportunity to have contact with such wonderful women.  I enjoy talking with you all so much.  And it really makes my job so enjoyable when you share with me what you are making or introduce me to so many new things.

Thanks and have a great week!


I will be posting new items through out the day, so stay tuned....
