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)

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!
