Christmas is Coming!

At this time of year, our days are getting busier and filled with "extra" things to do, right? I plan to be in a couple of craft shows and the items I have pictured are the things I am creating these days. I love making them! They are stiffened so they look very crisp. If you would like to place an order, you can go to my website at - they sell for $3.95, and include the sweet organza bag! (I have a link to my Etsy in my left-hand side column)

Above is my pink Christmas pin/ornament for those who love pink!

I include a little organza bag with my combination pin/ornament for gift-giving.

The above combination pin/ornament is for those who like wearing wreath pins.

Below is my traditional Christmas tree pin/ornament with red crystals.

Television Interview!!

On Friday, Dee Dee and I were interviewed by the sweet and pretty Julie Edwards of "3 Plus You" on News Channel 3 in Chattanooga. This will probably air in one of their shows next week at 11 a.m.

Dee Dee has Parkinson's, but she doesn't let it stop her from creating and crafting! She is one strong and smart lady.

If you would like to see some of Dee Dee's unique dolls, please scroll down a couple of blogs to look at all the pictures and read the story. This has been so exciting for Dee Dee and me!

We are having an "Elmcroft Holiday Bazaar" on Thursday, November 18th from 10 AM to 4 PM. So, if you are looking for some inexpensive and unique Christmas gifts (including Dee Dee's Dolls), please come by and see us!

I have taken a little detour and started painting again. I first started using oils, but they take so long to dry and you know me--I don't have time to watch paint dry. Anyway, I noticed that lots of female art has become popular in the last few years so I thought I'd take a chance and try my hand at it. I love to draw female faces and now am experimenting with different hairstyles and trying to make my ladies look different from each other--and that is hard. I tried to put a whimsical look into the paintings so they are not so serious and will make people smile. I hope I accomplished that. Anyway, I'm having fun doing it. I posted them on Etsy to see what happens.
