A Primitive Award..Thank You!

Thank you so much Annette of Huckleberry Arts for nominating me for this award!
There are so many truly talented artists and I am truly humbled and I thank you.
As I pass this award on, I think on how extremely giving Folk and Primitive Artisans are for offering us such wonderful designs,(some for free even) not only for our own love of the art, but that we may also provide for our own families. These ladies I nominate here
contribute so much through their genuine talent and Extreme generosity to the primitive artisan community...
My Heart-felt thanks to you all!!!

Nanny Norton Primitives...A Test drive and Pattern Review...

I was recently given the privilege to test drive"Alice" a Nanny Norton design by primitive artist Deb Klopp. (The Queen of Hearts is also a Nanny Norton design, made at an earlier date.)
The best thing about Deb's designs is they are off the beaten path, and always include fantastic elements which are great fun!!
I made up two Alice's. One using osnaburg. So pic of the osnaburg
dolly. While she was drying in the nice sunshine,the neighbor's pug stole
Alice off to Wonderland!!(Nope!..I'm NOT joking) the other using
"super muslin" from wal-mart.
Hands down,..The muslin works best for these designs because the tighter weave
works best for unique shapes, and small doll parts.
There is usually always a good bit of painting involved in these designs, but please,
do not be intimidated!!!! Perfect for beginners, the instructions, and templates are so clear and easy, Deb will be making grand masters of us all!!!
To top it off, there are fun, inventive little trinkets to make to accessorize
the dolls...These creations are so fun and easy to do, you will not be disappointed...You can find these designs at Nanny Norton Prims, And Deb
also has a shop at Please check out all her other fabulous designs and other offerings.

I'm Gonna Try This!!!

A great recycling idea found via whip up
This cute magnet was created using a tin can lid!! Punch a hole, and could be used as a really neat tag, Also a great double sided ornament too. Can lids are a great idea as a foundation or "canvas" for using your digi scraps and altered art bits!!! Unless you have one of those nifty new can openers, I think I would maybe cover the edges with some copper tape to protect from cuts too. Also one more thing to keep out of the trash! Doesn't get much better than that!!;-)

Fab deal for crafters!!

my friend Annette of Huckleberry Arts has a fabulous "Grab Bag" deal on collage sheets!
Her digi scraps and tags are fantastic!!!, and are invaluable for the busy upcoming holiday season for gifts and embellishments for your own crafts for sales.
Plus she's a super terrific gal to work with ;-)...
Snag it while you can...this offer is very limited...
have a wonderful day everyone!!!
