My very first giveaway!

Please check below for newer posts, as I am trying to keep this one at the top until the end of the giveaway!

Well, I got everything ready to go with the re-grand opening of my site. I only have items in the Autumn, Winter and Everyday catagories at this time. More items will be coming soon. Click here --->Roundabout Primitives.

Also, I am having my very first giveaway ever to celebrate my re-grand opening. You can win this little Snowman Family:

All you have to do is ---> Email Me <--- to enter the giveaway. Just give me your name, website name and email address. The drawing will be on Dec. 6th, and the winner will be notified by email, and the winners name will be announced here as well. I'll arrange for postal details at that time. If you would like to let others know about my giveaway, feel free to take this little graphic and link back to this post. :-)

That's all there is to it. :-)

Sentiment ornies (pattern by Sue Allemand of Palette Primitives) added to my shop. The tree isn't included though.

They turned out so cute! Can be used for any day of the year.

Close to re-opening

Getting close to re-opening my site, but I wante to get a few more Wintery/Christmas things added. I don't have any Spring or Summer items at this time, but that will eventually happen.

Working on new site

I decided to move all my stuff from my selling blog onto my own site. Will make things easier and I can put things into categories. Just getting it all set up is a pain. Still working on new craft items as well. I'd love to have a shop with either DIYestores or with DJ Doodles but I can't afford to do so. Using their services would be great though. So I'll be having my shop on my own server.

In the meantime I'll be working on the site and crafts, as well as trying to feel better, which I still am not. Some days are good, some days are bad.

Got to the craft store

I can't believe how much warm and natural is. I don't know what size of a piece they were selling, as it was bagged up, but they were wanting $136 for it?!?!?! I opted for some natural cotton batting that I thought I was getting for $11, but turns out it was $29.95 for 50in x 60in size. Jeepers! Also I got some bells to rust, 2 different sizes, and I got some black buttons and more thread for the sewing machine, and some mini christmas trees as I wanted to use the branches for projects. I am almost done with one project (haven't gotten very far actually), which I will finish up tomorrow.

Have to start over

Well I was almost finished making some little snowmen, but stupid me, I used plain old marker to trace things with, and when I went to coffee stain the snowmen, the marker bled. I don't know why I didn't think this would happen beforehand. So now I have to start all over.

Hoping to get over to the craft store tomorrow. I want to buy some jingle bells since I am running out. And hopefully can find some other good things to buy. I haven't been to this craft store for about 5 years now, and really hoping around this time of the year they will have what I want. Fingers crossed! Maybe I can get myself a proper tracing pen too!

Getting back into the groove!

Happy november 1st! Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Halloween.

I am slowly starting to get back into the groove of things. Still not feeling 100% terrific, but hopefully will get there. After not having made anything for a year now, it's so hard to get back into it all.

But, I'm finally starting to work on some craft items. I missed out on any October-ish items, so I am working towards making Winter/Christmas items.

I'm also considering closing my selling blog down (as much as I LOVE the graphics), and going back to having my own website on my server. I think it will be better to be able to have the different catagories to list everything under. I'll see how things go. I think I'd be happier to go that route again.
