HEY Everyone! Guess what happened to me today? I got up....sat in the livingroom with my cup O coffee and kept hearing this tiny whistling sound. I thought it was our cat Snoring. I kept hearing it and could not figure out where it was coming from. Finally I realized it was under the couch. I peak under and low and behold my FAT cat Nutmeg was there with 5 fuzzy new babies! She would have them UNDER the couch! FREE KITTENS!!!! They are so so cute and really long haired! Anyway.

Helllloooo! It is a beautiful cold morning here in Indiana! I have already snuck out to the back porch with my coffee and watched the worlds largest woodpecker at the bird feeder! When we moved to this farm we moved about an hour away and it just amazes me how the wild life has changed in a rather small distance. When we lived in Indy I never saw a flying squirrel and rarely saw deer. The birds here are even different. The woodpeckers are like gigantic and we have these little birds with bright blue bodies and white heads that hop all over the place. I have said it before and I will say it again...I LOVE IT HERE! I can't wait for spring though. If my family can't find me I am sure I will be in the greenhouse lol. I am thinking about growing some lavendar and some flowers & veggies. My little boy told me we need a goat so we can make goat milk lavender soap lol! Hmmmmmm.....I wouldnt mind having a few chickens either! Hey this blog so far is so not about Christmas art huh??? Sorry I rambled on. <----I am very good at that!

First off I want to say that I am so sorry it has been so long between blog posts. Between getting ready to open my Christmas shop, meetings at the school for my little boy and this stupid virus I got on my pc..things have been nuts. The pc virus is driving me nuts. I got it about a month ago while looking for knitting patterns. My husband downloaded adware and another program but nothing helps. What this virus does is bombs me with pop ups. It takes me 2 tries to load a page and facebook is near impossible for me to even log on to. Needless to say I want this virus gone and I am upset about it! I also wanted to ask that if any of the Halloween winners DID NOT GET your prize please email me your home addy at I think I got everyone but not sure!

This week I will be adding lots of Christmas goodies to my Ebay store and a few to my etsy shop. I have new paintings, new paper mache goodies, new Christmas charm bracelets and even toys, handmade ornaments and some vintage items. I am also going to list some crafty items in my store this year like yarn, rusty springs, rusty angel wings things like that. So keep watching my Ebay shop for lots of goodies! Even doll house miniatures! I am cleanning out my closets and listing listing listing lol.

So here are some photos of goodies I have done and I promise to blog weekly virus or not! If anyone knows how I can get rid of this pop up virus from heck please HELP ME!

Ps..Today I finished up some Spooky Hollow Christmas guy chenille ornaments and will list them this week. I will post a new blog with all the links to my new creations. I am also working on a paper mache Christmas mouse and little snow angel clay ornaments I hope you will like! I am also adding lots of cute Christmas beaded items to my shops! So please keep watching and again I am so sorry I took so long to blog!

Next blog will have a wonderful Christmas Contest!

Have fun and God Bless,
