New items just listed in my Etsy shop! Check it out!





Hello everyone! How was your Christmas holiday? I hope all of you got what you have been wanting! Well New Years is next! Are you ready for 2009? What is your New Years resolutions? Mine , as usual, is to take off some pounds and to hit my business hard. Actually, I have started part of my resolution today by adding some new items to my shop and would like to take this time to share with you what is new! I have four new items I have just listed. A few are for Valentine's Day and a couple are just for anytime of the year. Not necessarily in order...I have a Valentine's Day extreme Annie doll, a Valentine's Day door hanger from a Tennessee Ridge Primitives pattern, an extreme primitive bear lamp, and an extreme black doll that I have designed myself that comes with a stack of pancakes and a rag ball. Please come in today and read about my items and I will be working on adding more Valentine's Day items. There is a set of rabbits that I posted when I first opened my shop and welcome you to take a look at them also. They would be a great set to give your lover of extreme primitives this Valentine's Day!

Enjoy and I hope you find something that you can't live without!

A New Ebay Group has just surfaced!

Hello readers! Six more days until Christmas! Can you believe it! I hope all of you have been good and will be remembered by Santa! I have no worries there! I'm sure all of you will be rewarded for your goodness! Get to bed on time on Dec. 24th because I believe Santa shows up around 12 midnight. Don't forget to leave him cookies and milk. We like to keep our Santa jolly!

I am here today to tell you of a great new group that has just been born! It is called," A Primitive Gathering of Sisters!". The leader is Kelly, Once in a Blue Moon Primitives, and is a reuniting of another group from ebay....Olde Primitive Sisters Group, OPSG. This reuniting of a number of OPSG members , which is very much alive and well, and is now 37 members strong and getting caught up with each other once again! I have been so touched to return to a group that, overtime lost touch with one another. I'm thrilled to know what is going on in my primitive sister's lives and have missed them greatly! Its funny that I was just feeling the loss of my sisters from Ebay that Kelly came along and asked me to rejoin her in another group that I have been very close to! Thank you Kelly for this invitation! I love being reunited and having the opportunity to get caught up with my wonderful group of Ebay! I love each and everyone of you! I have made a turn in my selling forum but have not lost the friendships that I've made with my OPSG primitive sisters! You are all the very best! Next time your in Ebay put APGS in your search and take a look at all the wonderful items this new group has to offer! (Go to another great group to view their great talents by putting OPSG in your search!) You won't be sorry! These groups are overflowing in talents and are the nicest groups of primitive crafters that I've ever met!

Don't forget the Website featuring great members of OPSG;


(Put APGS and/ or OPSG in your search)

(A few logos and banners that you will see to identify this group! Aren't they great?)

Congratulations ladies! Your blogs are wonderful and fully deserve this honor! Enjoy!

An outstanding Etsy artist that you'll just have to do business with!!

Hello all! How are all of you and are you all staying warm? I sure hope so! I'm here today to share a wonderful experience with you all about a wonderful artist that you can find on Etsy. Her name is Jennifer and she is one of a kind!

I have problems every year with really raw lips. They dryout, crack and then my lips begin to peel! I must say it is painful and an ungodly sight to behold! My husband would say they're like the scales on the body of a reptile!LOL Nice isn't he? Well, I was doing some searching in Etsy and found something very interesting...I found there was something that could be done about my problem and that is called using a lip scrub? What is a lip scrub and what would it do I was wondering. I have used body scrubs and facial scrubs...but never anything that could actually take care of my weathered....wornout lips to look plump and lucious once again. I didn't think anything could work for a very long time and especially anything that could save my lips during this cold, unrelenting temperatures! I found a couple shops that sell many items including this lip scrub, body and bath products, candles, eye shadows, items for your face and the like. The prices these sellers had were very appealing and I loved the idea of having my first lip scrub be something that can be put on at any time or place and can be used just for protection after the scrub is wiped away! One of the shops is called, " My Grandma's Gift" and the other is called, " Allure by Jen." I found a great lip scrub in "Allure by Jen" that looked clear and was one of those scrubs that was in a lipstick container and was a vanilla flavor and the second item was from "My Grandma's Gift." This one was a bit more adventurous and was cocoa flavored and was in a small jar and tastes and smells divine!

Well I went ahead and purchased both products and then was later contacted by the owner of these two great shops! I found out the owner of both was a gal, whose name is Jennifer and she was just so kind and concerned about the problems I was experiencing with my lips. She said that she gives out a trial size of anything I would like to have from her shops and what would I like. Of course, I said anything chocolate flavored / and or fragranced! ( I had explained to her that this lip chapping was a common problem and really appreciated that she offered such a convenient way to control this problem and proceeded to give her a small explaination of the problem I have had for years! I immediately got a reply back saying what I needed and what she would provide for me to help me out ...which was a lip therapy that would condition my lips and give them what they seemed to be lacking. (I had a habit of controlling the terrible lip condition by licking them to keep the skin down and in place and she was kind enough to tell me how this makes the problem worse and didn't add any flavoring because of my licking tendencies!) This gal is very knowledgeable of makeup, and the like, and knows what is good for both! If that doesn't make you confident in the items you are putting on your face and body...I don't know what will?!)

This sweet gal showed such concern and contacted me about a week after the purchases, and therapy had arrived to see how everything was doing. I told her how her help was changing my life and making this problem virtually disappear due to her help and how much I have appreciated her special attention to my particular problem. She was just so gracious and went far above and beyond anyone else that I've purchased from....and I've done business with many kind, sweet, helpful sellers! I can't thank her enough and urge any/ and all of you to visit her shops in Etsy to buy from one of the best sellers I know! Please tell her hello from me when you go! Just tell her ...Deb,(Willowtree Treasures), sends her well wishes!LOL

Come and welcome the new addition to my Etsy!

Hello everyone! How were your holidays? I hope you all had plenty of turkey and had a great time with your loved ones and friends! Did any of you spend time watching the Macy's parade? It is never Thanksgiving for me until I'm watching those enormous balloons , and fantastic floats, are on my tv screen, with all of my family members oooing and ahhing over there size and construction! I always love that this time of year!

Did any of you venture out on Black Friday for shopping? My son and fiance went and quickly left the mall because of the customers! They did get some shopping done and bought themselves some shoes ...but I guess they are not much different than mom and dad or mom and dad in-law. I was in awe of the online sales and ,even taken more with the cyber Monday sales! I can't say I bought anything ....but that sure was fun and no crowds to deal with! If you have a story about your Black Friday shopping experience please leave a comment and let me know all about it! All I know is that it can be the most exciting shopping trip you can make.... or a trip when you end up with a few bruises and hair loss before you return home! Watching the news and seeing customers waiting long hours for a very desirable toy or new "high tech." unit can bring the beast out in many that are usually very friendly and kind! I don't want to see that any closer than the tv when the mild mannered folks turn into monsters! LOL

Well I am here today to tell you of another item I just added to my shop. I have sold a Primitive Grungy cat over the weekend and just put a new one up. Please come in and take a gander at her , and her mouse. She is quite an addition and is ALL PRIM! So if you LOVE prim you might very well take a liking to her! I hope you all have a fantastic day! Enjoy!

I got it all in the bag.....

Good morning all! Have all of you seen the beginning of the winter weather by experiencing some snow? I just feel that it is so beautiful this time of year and love those first few episodes when the snow is at its whitest and softly falling all over the grass we spent so many hours mowing this past spring and summer! I hope you are all ready for the holidays and this helps put you all in the mood to bring on the turkey and stuffing and sit back and enjoy the parades!

I am here to tell you today of the folkart lamp that I've made and it is for sale in Etsy. I made my first folkart lamp and can't say how much I loved putting this together. Good thing I have done the snowman and Annie "Learning to skate" Dolls for this bottom of this lamp needs to be boxed and would have never known how to do this if I hadn't done those dolls first! Thanks goodness for small favors! I plan to make more and put them on but I have some woolfelt brooches I'd like to try my hand at first and still need the wool for the folkart Santa that I'm still waiting to complete! I promise once the wool has arrived this item will be up and available and would be another item that can be put under the doll greeter category of my shop. So if you are in need of an awesome doorgreeter keep you eyes on my shop for I'll get the hair and beard on the minute the wool arrives! Well for now enjoy the new style lamp I'll be making available and hope you enjoy this new item. If you have a color that you are interested in or a certain woolfelt figure you would like to request...please feel free to do so and I will get busy putting together your item. Until next time....keep smiling and remember every snow flake that touches you during the day is the snow angel from the heavens touching you with her soft/ loving touch. Go out and enjoy it! P.S. I also tried a felt flower pin that I made, of course, prim and added to it my list also. Go see what you think. Thanks!

I am thrilled to say that I have another folkart Santa already to go and am still waiting for the wool to arrive so I can finish him up! I am also starting a new type of light and it will be a folkart lamp that I hope that all of my interested readers may be interested in that is made of shirt flannel with a woolfelt figure on the front. They are very attractive and are ohhh sooo prim! keep watch on my shop because I am in the holiday mood and creating things like crazy that can be used for your home or given as a gift! I hope you enjoy!

Santa #1 is now ready for sale in my Shop!

Hello everyone! How are you all doing today? I hope you all are doing fine! During my last post I stated that I was hoping to have some Santas done and ready for sale by this week....well I have my first set of Santas done and they indeed are in my Etsy shop and ready for sale. These are the cutest Santas and are from a pattern of Ragg Bagg Babies. These little guys are made to be pin keeps/ pincushions but are so cute you may just like one to admire and to put in a place that is special to you like a prim basket or rocker! This pattern also has a snowman and witch that can be made with it and I would like to work on the snowman next. The witch is just so cute too and can be made just into an Annie. Having done the first doll I am sold that this is just the most interesting construction I've ever done and can't wait to make more!

I said that I wanted to get a "couple" Santas done this week and believe it or not I did.. but I ran out of wool and just have to put the hair and beard on the last Santa to be able to make it available to the people that shop Etsy. Again, I hope to get the final Santa done by the end of this week, fingers crossed that the wool arrives in time! Be watching for the 2nd Santa that will be posted in my shop. This one will be a very folkart doll and can be used as a door greeter or wall hanger as well and was a hit the last time I made these so be watching! I hope that you all are having a wonderful day and until my next post.....

Not to worry....Santas are coming!

Good morning all! I apologize for being so quick with my latest posts. I have been working my head off to make sure I get enough Christmas items in my Etsy shop and am looking at what I can do for Valentines! Crazy isn't it? It never seems to end ...but is a true challenge to see how many things I can get going at one time and multitask to get it all done....but done with quality and not getting caught up in the idea of quantity!

I just wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a couple of santas and will have them done soon and will have them posted in my shop by next week. *fingers crossed* I'm hoping they will be done and ready to be up for sale by next week...I should say!LOL

Like I said I am also thinking Valentine's Day! You say..."Why would you do that? That isn't until Feb." My answer is because it is the next holiday and will be creeping up on us before you know it and is also a very popular holiday! With crafting the holidays seem to just move along and before you know it the whole year is gone and wonder why half of it you didn't even recognize!

Well I'm having a great time just upping the antie on myself for item numbers , items to fill my categories and trying out new ideas that to quit now would set me off my inner clock to produce, produce, produce!

Well just thought I touch base with you on my ideas, current projects and future projects so that you know ...although my items in my shop may be stalled for now. It won't be for long for I am still working on filling in items that I don't have yet and hopefully will do well enough that I will touch someone out there to make something their very own!

Take care and until next time......

I have also listed another lamp with this one including both the girl and the boy angel dolls in the same lamp! This is a very attractive lamp and would be just beautiful on a coffee table, on a tv entertainment center or in a child's room. It gives off a very soft glow of light is not overwhelming to have in a room! Lastly, there are three mice, each in their own Christmas mittens , that can hang from the Christmas tree, key holder , or an old cupboard. They are just the sweetest!

Two new items added to my Etsy Shop!

Good afternoon everyone! How is everyone today? I hope you are all doing well and the weather is still warm enough so that you can enjoy your days. All I can say is good thing the snow hasn't started yet ...because I am not ready! Let's hope it holds off awhile longer!

I have added two new items into my Etsy shop just yesterday and wanted to let all of my readers be aware of their arrival. I have moved in a Primitive Raggedy Annie and Andy lamp and a Primitive Mammy and Children's lamp as well. I'm trying my hardest to keep my numbers up in my shop and hope to make it to 40 items in there very soon. It is a wonderful thing when you sell an item , and soo encouraging , but that also means to have backup items to keep the numbers up in your shop and I'm drastically trying to have this 35 items grow. Not that I want the purchasing to stop...I will just work harder to keep cranking out new items to keep my shop stocked and continue its please have patience with me as I am working on this now and new arrivals will be coming soon!

Primitive Raggedy Annie and Andy Lamp

Primitive Mammy and Children Lamp

These can be seen in my Etsy Shop and hope you all enjoy your experience!


I also have other new news. I have left the Olde Primitive Sisters on Ebay group and also the Old Primitive Sisters Marketplace Website. I have found being part of more than one group and selling forum is very exhausting and have not been able to give full attention to both groups. Although, I have gone with Etsy to have a new start I still care of the wonderful people in the OPSG group and wish them all well. I apologize for having to leave but more so for not being able to be the best member I could be to earn the honor of staying as a member and fully doing my part. I will miss everyone there and hope that we can keep in touch! I'm sure I'll run into the members that are now also Etsy members and can get caught up on the latest news with ya! Keep a smile on your faces because you are a highly talented group of ladies and makeup the greatest group on Ebay! I love ya and will miss you all! Many HUGS......

I ask all of my readers to keep The Olde Primitive Sisters Marketplace a place that you explore for their works of art is well worth seeing. The talent of these ladies will amaze you and the creations they have available just has to be explored! Also look up "OPSG" in your search in Ebay and see all of these very talented ladies work of art up for auction! The talent never ends with these very talented artists! Although I'm no long a part of this group I will consider each and every member of OPSG a life long sister and will be here if ever you need me! You can count on me!

Thanks for coming today and until the next creation is out and posted.......

I'll be making more pins as the time goes on so if you don't see something that speaks to you yet...hold may be coming at a different time. If you have something that you would like to see as a pin please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email or convo me in Etsy or send me a message in Ebay! Regardless I'd love to hear from you! Hope this pin brings a smile to your face along with the dog pins and have a great day!
