We need Your Opinion!

Yes we need your opinion on our poll! Do you like cup cozies? Would you buy them made from leather with painted designs? After you vote in our poll Reply to this thread about your ideas on why or why not we should do this. We understand that many other sellers out their make them, this is not why we were thinking about it. Our leather ones will look like corsets with painted designs. We were thinking Celtic knots, Trinity Knots, Ivy leaves and vines, states, shield crests and the list goes on for days. Our knitted ones would have fun fur edging, some without it. With many colors and designs as our leather ones. We are not trying to copy anyone or steel anyones ideas. Its something that we have been talking about for some time now. We would like your opinion on this. It will help with our decision. We are working with sketch designs at the moment nothing has been made. This poll closes on February 14th please make sure you vote in it. Thanks and have a great Day!

Another random Day

Today Is another random day. It started as a cold and rainy morning and became a beautiful sunshine day. The weather was nice no jackets necessary. Truly a nice day. Days like this makes me giddy because I know spring is on the way. I really love the fresh green colors and the bright colors of tulips (my favorite flower). I grew up in Washington State I lived on Whiby Island (Oak Harbor). I loved the tulips in the spring. We would go to the Holland Happening Parade in the morning then we would take a drive to the Big Dutch Wind Mills. In front they would have tulips everywhere of all colors. It was so pretty! I surly miss those days and I no longer have those pictures of my child hood. But to stand on the gravel walks and see fields of red, yellow, blue, purple, pink and white tulips were an amazing sight. because in the backdrop was the Harbor surrounded by mountains. I can still remember the old light house that guarded the Harbor. It was so long ago but at times it felt as if it were yesterday. I miss my old wooden shoes and my hat from those days but I will always hold them in my heart!

This artist has some great looking pieces. The colors and shapes worms even the chill from my monitor.

You need a program the unzips the file. Its worth the $3.00! I simply plugged in the image addy that i uploaded in photobucket and plugged in the necessary fields. Now I know most of you know how to do this on your own but for those who are super busy its great! I have 2 kids 3 and 2 one with special needs the other super smart. I really don't have time to write code so this is wonderful. It took me seconds to generate a banner that I can use. Just generate the html code and copy and past it where you want it. Simple fast and easy.

2 ways to get the program order it from our online website or send me a message and I will e-mail you a pay pal invoice. Once payment is received I will e-mail you the zip file.

Next we came across The biggest Yarn stash (so far)? This is truly a shrine to yarn. Such colors, textures, and it just makes you go in and wish you could owen all the softness. And here to think my hubby was upset over the few yarn skiens I have, How can I ever compare to such a beutiful stash of Yarn!?
