Sorbet Delight

My friend Hope, aka TheQueenOfRe made this delicious girly cami dress. The colors remind me of sorbet and push pops. Yummy!! I just love her handmade roses!

Art in the Garden

My good friend Hope (TheQueenofRe) and I stumbled upon a wonderful mini fine art show at a gal's house in Clio, Michigan. This is the ninth year she has offered this show in her lovely backyard. The show is appropriately called, Art in the Garden. Hope had her camera along and took these wonderful photos of the exhibit and surroundings. A couple of these gals showed interest and may be selling at our July 25th Traveling Trunk Show Sisterhood trunk show. Please contact Hope or myself through our etsy stores if you are interested in vending or attending. TravelingTrunkShowSisterhoodTrunkShow

Medium Sized Vinyl Banner

Well, my new vinyl banner is featured above. It's a 10 oz. vinyl and has crisp, vivid color. It measures 4' x 2.5'. The photo above shows it just after I unrolled it and it's being held up by the top 2 corners by my son and husband. I ordered a set of plastic tabs for the corners so it can be tied down. However, they have not yet been applied in the photo above. I'll be using this banner at my booth when I vend at quilt shows and at the farmer's markets and art fairs. I can design these full-color custom banners and have them printed with your business information too. They come in three sizes: 3' x 1 .6', 4' x 2.5', and 6' x 2.5'. If you have any questions or would like to place an order, contact me through my etsy store!

Birds and Bees and Babies

Well, every night when we go to sleep we leave the tv on and on 'mute.' I had stayed up late watching an episode of "Mystery Diagnosis" on the Health Channel, so it was still set on that channel when I muted the tv and went to sleep. At some point in the wee morning hours our little boy (just finishing up kindergarten) crawled into our bed while we were sleeping. At about 4am, I awoke to a little boy's voice stating: "I just saw a baby come out of a Mommy's tummy." Terrific. So much for teaching him the cabbage patch theory.

Leaf and Flower Ribbon

Aren't these just the coolest die cut ribbons??

Peach-y Treasury

Well, a nice gal Named Susan from SusanMossArt on featured my neat little peach lip balms in her treasury today. Thanks Susan!!!!!

Vinyl Banner

I'm selling vinyl banners now. The Queen of Re placed her order and received her banner yesterday. She was so kind to send me photos. It's a 6' x 2.5' vinyl full-color banner and it looks phenomenal judging by the photos. She will be using her banner when she vends at trunk shows. Thanks again for sharing, her Majesty! I will be listing these custom banners soon in my etsy store.

Vintage Luggage

My good friend Hope, also known as "The Queen of Re" is known for re-purposing, re-using, re-cycling and a whole mess of other "re" words. She has a fabulous collection of literally hundreds of pieces of terrific vintage luggage. We bartered and I was able to acquire a mess of these terrific old Samsonites in the blue and green shades. I will be using them for displays for when I vend and do trunk shows. I still have to clean them up but don't they look great!!!!?? We have a trunk show coming up in July and I can't wait to use them!!!!!
My "Marie Antoinette" line of balms are so much fun and smell worthy of the finest silver fork, but are zero calorie - and no flatware needed!

This is a favorite that I sell at the Farmer's Market! The lavender essential oil within keeps the bugs away and also helps with rough, cracked or irritated skin. And so fun to make! I love working with the products that go in the tins. Makes me feel like a mad scientist!!!
