Giveaway Winner and a New Venture ...

Congratulations to lucky number 36 -C from Project Pretty (chosen by! The frame is packed up and ready to go to its new home. I just need your address.
I wanted to send a big Thank You to everyone who entered and everyone who reads this blog. To the followers thank you for helping me reach 200! I remember being ecstatic having 10 followers. Being over 200 was unfathomable! Thanks so much.

On to the new "project" ... I've had an etsy shop for a while, but I haven't had time to do much with it. I let the listings I had expire for the summer so that I could focus on other things. The cold weather will be here before we know it which means painting outside will be coming to an end for me. I won't give up decorating (that's impossible) but this is something I'll be able to do for the winter. I have listed a few things and tweaked it a little and plan to keep adding. The main reason I decided to work on this is because early this year I started thinking about doing a local craft show for next year. This is where I'm starting.

You've seen my button frames and here are a couple on Etsy. The white version I love ...

... and this is a black and white version.

Remember my tray? Here's one I listed in Etsy:

I've also made these flower pins from vintage items ...

... and I've been working on jewelry. I haven't listed much jewelry yet, but I will be adding more new items soon. I love this ring and wear one of them all the time.

I'm hoping that by working on this for the next year, I'll have some luck applying for the craft show next summer.
