My poor blog :(

Wow I have been so lacking on my prim blog, please forgive me my faithful readers and prim friends...life is full and busy and always changing.
I have missed posting on my prim blog, but I have been following you all on here. I tried to change my way of thinking for home decor and style in my life, but I am so still drawn to primitive and rustic country...I guess you really can't take the country out of the girl...hahaha
With that said I was trying to make my whole house shabby chic which I love but my hubby doesn't, he doesn't mind whites, creams and he love chipped paint and rustic look...but not to girly...I have been racking my brain on how to mixed primitive and little shabby together...so I think I know now what to do...so stay tuned in for some pics on my home.
There is just something about primitives that feels warm and inviting to the eye and heart. I have been getting into the mixed media art creative play the past few months. I also miss crafting prims, I just love sewing up a doll or creating a cards with checks, and a crow must have a crow...so you might see some new art work from me.
At the end of March I had another surgery to remove scar tissue that was crowding my colon and other organs...it's been a long recovery. Getting my oldest daughter ready for college, she is working all summer for her college work program that helps pay for her tuition. Which is a huge help!
Now that school is out for my youngest daughter who is turning 16 today, boy that flew by really fast. My heart skips a beat, to think my babies are growing up so fast and one is ready to leave the nest.

                      She Art-my first piece (so love mixed media and all the lovely texture), 4x4 canvas!
Off to spend the day with my birthday girl!

12 Days of Christmas 2011

Day 1: Christmas Tree

Over at my paper crafting blog Creative Scraps by Peggy Lee you can read in more depth about how and you can create this CTMH card stock, stamps, inks and some embellishments.
 Created with a paper cone base, then glued the paper cones on, added some glitter and little saying to start off my creative side of the Holidays.

I just love this photo of our shed in our backyard, the fresh fallen icy snow is so beautiful at the dawn of the morning, drinking a cup of coffee and soaking in the sights is just heart warming.

What have I been up to!!! Dec. 1st already....

Wow where has the time gone, so busy doing so many things I haven't had much time to devote to my prim blog and crafting. The past two months I have been ill and trying to get a Christmas Workshop put together plus work on some crafty items to sell at some Holiday Craft Fairs...CRAZY!!!
 I did manage to make some homemade rolls and lazz. for supper a few weeks ago, you know before turkey day. Which I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, I sure did and it was crazy meaning, two days before Thanksgiving I got a call from my sis that said you need to come home and cheer mom up....so with all that said we packed up and drove up home to Maine in a blizzard!!!! CRAZY if my sister didn't have a 4x4 wheel drive we wouldn't have made it....but we did safe and sound and surprized my mom not just for Thanksgiving but her birthday too...love ya mom.
 One day last month I was walking around my home just enjoying my decorations that I have made and this wreath spoke to me, it was the first thing I made from our bush out back in the yard the first fall we lived here. So love the simple joy it gives me.
 here is some of the craziness I have been up to rolling book pages into roses, wreaths, card making, sewing...ooooo the list goes on...and I am still not done.
 started to dabble in mixed media art to not bad for my first ever face......
Christmas Wall Art

 while I was home I can sit at my mom's kitchen table and get great shots of my favie little birdie!!!! so love it.
Well off to Olde Time Christmas in Lancaster, NH tonight, so love this time of the year!!!! Visiting my fav store that is closing it's doors, very very sad but understandable with the way the money problem is today...which just makes me want to open my shop in my home so bad....soon....

Sunflowers "Make Me Smile"

 My teenage daughter Emilee decided she wanted to plant sunflowers like her grammie does in Maine, so she started them from seeds in the house omw you don't need to the grow really fast....we planted them as fast as we could. For our first crop of sunflowers they were beautiful. See the little visitor?
                                                                            simply primtive
 My daughter loved taking snap shots of the different growing stages, I was so thrilled they did so well for her. Oh yes, she is making plans on planting even more next year. Love that she got her green thumb from my mom. So sit back enjoy the beauty of fall approaching us, Sunflowers always make me smile, with a good cup of coffee.

Birthday Gift Wrap and Tag

 My girlfriend had a birthday last week, and created this birthday celebrate tag to spruce up the simple tissue and muslin gift wrap (which is totally adorable prim look). I tied muslin around the heart to tie in with the wrapping on the gift, just a simple handmade thought that warms the heart.

                                                                        summer beauty
take time to enjoy the simple things in life.
