New Sunflowers and Stars

After 2 days of hot yard work I was ready to craft today. I have sunflowers on my mind. I made these sunflower and stars on twigs today. Im using them in my Americana summer bags. What do you think?

Sweet new ride!

I got my new wheels last week. The Durango is retired- actualy for sale. I got a GMC Yukon. Love it and the new car feel. Im still trying to learn and the gadgets on it.

I went Junking!

Geesh, is it ever going to dry out in Central Illinois? Spent the day Sunday at the 3rd Sunday Antique and Flea Market in Bloomington Illinios. It was a ton of fun and I got a bunch of goodies to use in my primitve creations. I had Make- dos on my mind so the search was for items to use for that and holiday decor. The thrill of the hunt has me inspired to start on Santas and Snowmen. I met up with my Crafting friend Lori. It was so nice to see her. We would be dangerous together if we lived closer. Checkout my loot. What would you use these pieces for?

New Civil War Dolls

I have been working on these Civil War guys for a few weeks. They are almost done. Im making each a Rebel flag. I made them different- they stand. These guys have dowel legs. I am so excited to get them almost done. I have xmas and fall visions starting in my head. Its about time for me to start stocking up for the busy holiday season.

I just finished a few new horses for 2010 that I will be listing on Ebay and putting in the Mercantile Shop this week. Sales have been good. I have been dreaming of a standing civil war doll for a while. Started him today. I can wait to get a day off work to get him going. Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather.
