A great giveaway (but not here)

Something you might not know:  I LOVE  shop.  Today she is doing a giveaway on another blog and I suggest you head over and enter this cute make-up bag.

You'll have to visit creek's shop so you will see some of my favorite things and can pick your own.   But something you might not know is that she also owns this shop: and here is one of my favorites from it:

So head on over to and get yourself entered!

This week I made bouquets

This is the last wedding I did.    I LOVED the guys bout's. 

And this is what I have been working on this week:

I'm very happy with them, especially considering we didn't really have time to shop around for favorite flowers.   We had to use what is out right now in the right colors.

To sell or not to sell (and keep for myself)

This would be my newest poppy piece and I am in complete love with it.    I haven't yet made a poppy piece to keep for myself.   I have made them for my mom, my husband's office, my friends and sold them to a handful of people on etsy.   Maybe it's time to keep one?

It's my largest one yet and even better, it's upcycled.    It was an ugly canvas painting of a beach chair that I found at a thrift store for $3.   I LOVE cheap canvases :)...especially old ugly ones that need some love.

So, should I keep it, or sell it?

Happy Dogs

Another great seller to feature today.

Janet at crittersandcrafts is a wonderful person to work with. I recently ordered a custom collar (picture to come at a later date as the collar is a gift to the husband) and a pet bed. I paid for the items on Monday and they arrived on my doorstep yesterday.

The second I opened the box my little Oscar came running. He has a thing for blankets (as all doxies do) and at first the bed looks like a folded blanket.   For those who haven't seen or heard of snuggle beds, they basically look like big warm pillowcases.     It allows smaller dogs (who like to burrow) to bury themselve inside and keep warm.   

Anyway, after opening the box up, I threw the bed on the chair in our office and Oscar went to investigating. Sniffed it all over and decided it was burrow-able. However, he kept ending up UNDER the entire bed instead of in the middle.   After a few minutes and my help he found the opening and buried himself inside for the night.   He didn't want to leave it's warmth.  

So, if you are in the need for any pet items I suggest visiting
