I woke up this morning to the most wonderful surprise. Pioneer Woman blogged about her recent visit to Seattle.

Now I am connecting with my fellow PW lovers all over the world. To celebrate, I am going to do my B-I-G giveaway a little early.

I love looking at artwork at thrift shops, garage sales and antique shops. So much of it seems to have been created by woman for their friends, which makes it extra special.

Here are a few of my favorites: Untitled Oil Painting by Janel Richardson Untitled Print by Hone Untitled Watercolor Painting by Catherine Simpson This was one of my first art/garage sale buys back in 1987! I got it for my Dad but I think I loved it more so it's been living with me… Read More
What a whirlwind weekend. Making stuff for an upcoming craft sale and for a store that will be carrying some of my products. Having a stamp-a-thon with my cousin Heather and my friend Ann to get ready. Spending way too much time with a bag of felt and a die cut machine.
