Trying again!

Well, I never heard from the winner that was chosen for my 'Spring Giveaway'......
So I'm gonna try it again! WENDY from Ravenwood Whimzies was chosen as the NEW winner of my Spring Giveaway! CONGRATULATIONS! Contact me, Wendy, at  if you see this before I contact you. I may already have your addy.
Our OFG Team is at it again! Lots of wonderful Hand Mades in their Etsy shops for our newest celebration, "Anything Goes"! Just click on the link above to see some wonderful creations.
Sadly, I  am not among them. My creations are still half-finished. Just couldn't seem to get my act together. Here are a couple of dolls I'm working on. WARNING: this is a bit X-rated as they're still a bit nekked!
Black Folk Art Dolls. I used a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern. 
These gals haven't even made it out of the pan!
Looks a bit like the Walking Dead. Did you watch the Finale last night? AWESOME!
I won a Supply Giveaway from Brenda of the Rusty Thimble.
It was filled to the top with all kinds of goodies!
 Lovely laces!
 Colored Mohair? Heck yeah, that's right up my alley!
I just washed the 2 pieces of fabric so I can use it on one of my black folk art dolls.
Of course the wood is already 'talking' to me!
Thank you, Brenda! I love being a winner, especially one of yours!
These guys need ears but are going out in the mail this afternoon.
Last but not least, here's a picture of our 9 year old daughter at her Piano recital.
Look at those long, strong fingers! She is doing GREAT! We are so lucky to have such an awesome Teacher that lives a Hop, Skip, and a Jump away from us!
The kids are on Spring Break this week so I'm taking a break, too. Gorgeous weather here in North Central Florida! I think we'll try for a quick trip to the beach!
Hope your Spring has Sprung! For those of you still experiencing snow, just think how grateful you'll be when warmer weather arrives and stays!
Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Giveaway Winner!

Oh, what a GORGEOUS day here in our Sunshine State! Not trying to brag but it sure makes a person feel good and productive to see it so beautiful out. The kids are on their way out to the pool! The water is still a bit too cool for me. If the heat index keeps rising I'm sure I'll be in it by the end of April!
I've finished a couple of 'Bunny' Plants today.

Our daughter has a Piano Recital tomorrow and I thought I'd give one to the Teacher. I made 2 of the 'pink' ones. I think I'll list just one in my Etsy shop. It's a little late for new Easter items.
We took the kids to Disney this week.
They had a half-day at school so we kept them out. Thought we'd be home in time to get them to school the next day but my 'biggest' kid wanted to stay for the fireworks. We got home at midnight. I woke up the next morning and felt like a Mac Truck had run over me a few hundred times! Just not as young as I used to be!
Thank you, all, for commenting on my Springtime Giveaway. The winner of my little Giveaway is DONNA MILLS.  CONGRATS, DONNA! Message me at with your addy and I'll send you a box full of Springtime goodies!
I'm making some dolls for our OFG Team's newest Celebration coming up at the end of March. I'm so excited to show them to you! Something different from me and a pattern I'm using from Sweet Meadows Farm. I'll also have a couple of new painted items from Plum Purdy's newest book. I think it's the last 'new' stuff I'll make this year. I've got to replenish my stock!
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

Everything is blooming here in my neck o' the woods! My home is resounding with all of our 'achoos'!  No, we're not sick just sneezing from all of the pollen. Heaven knows Florida's got some allergens! On the bright side, the sun is shining and the weather is gorgeous! 
I finished these little bunnies and I've got them listed if you're wanting a Chocolate Bunny.

They are $7.95 each plus $5.00 shipping. I've also got a 15% coupon in my shop on your total order.
I got this in the mail this week!
SO EXCITED to get started on a few of these!
I'll be cutting some wood today to prep for another Celebration by our fabulous OFG Team.
Don't forget about my Spring Giveaway! I've made some changes on my blog so I've not been replying to your comments. Didn't mean to do that and will look into it after this Giveaway. If you've commented on here, you are entered. I appreciate any SHARING that you've done!
Winner announced next week.
Oh, and before I forget, I've been featured HERE!
Have a great weekend!

Time change and warmer weather = EASTER right around the corner! I've been doing some sewing but when it comes time to do the stuffing, I conveniently find other things to occupy my time. In my house, that's not difficult to do! I got these fellows finished over the weekend; just need to paint them and add a bow. The packaging is what makes them look like real chocolate Bunnies. Sending some of these to the Gold Coast Humane Society for there 'Bun Fest'. The rest I'll put in my Etsy shop.
I've also been working on 'planting' some bunnies in baskets.
I should have these guys done today.
My Sassy Ladys seem to be drawing a bit of interest. Thought I'd make a Breast Cancer Awareness one.
Also one I call 'American Guns'.
These are available in my Etsy shop. (My badge is on the right sidebar.)
I love to shop at JoAnn's and seems like every time I do, they have these sweet boxes on sale.
I loved this one and thought I'd fill it up with some Spring paraphernalia and hand made goodies for a lucky Follower.
My rules aren't really rules at all. Just leave me a comment and a way to contact you. I would appreciate any SHARING you might do but it isn't required for this. I do have to make this Giveaway contingent only in the good 'ole US of A due to the expense of shipping.
Keeping this Giveaway open until March 21st (Saturday) at which time I'll post a winner that morning. (EST)
Hope Spring is on it's way to you!
Thanks for following!
