Christmassy Things

It's that time of year again, and as you can imagine, we have all been busy doing Christmassy things. Perhaps none of us have been quite as Christmas busy as Colleen...... and she doesn't even have little helper elves to do it for her like some people, whom shall remain nameless, who live in the North Pole & have reindeer delivery guys. Colleen only has one reindeer, and although she's pretty darn cute, she's not real big on helping.......

So here is just a little glimpse of the Christmas magic being spun in Colleen's studio.......

Hey Crafty Peeps

Soooo......  admittedly, it's been awhile, but big things are happening over here!!!

Colleen has been a busy little beaver, returning to her craft with fervor..... well maybe not to that extent, but she really has been quite busy.
  Along with her , upholstering, custom sewing & repairs, primitive & french country decor, she has added repurposing & distressing furniture & accent pieces to her ever growing repertoire.  Most of it being custom work, so if you can dream it, she can do it.
We are talking many one of a kind pieces here people!!!
She's had great success with recent sales, showcasing her natural talent & amazing work.

........ and just a few pics from one of  Colleen's recent craft shows

Just in time for Christmas

After being away for several years, I have returned to my first love.....
To be clear, I am working from home again, designing primitive and other forms of decor.
I would like to thank my followers, friends and all those who encouraged me to return to my creative roots.  I didn't realize, until my return, how much I missed it...... And now, my heart is home.

So, I am back with renewed energy & spirit, and am excited to share my creations with you.
My contact info has changed

Thanks for your patience

After much anticipation the tree is up. (not mine of
course, as I am the world's biggest procrastinator), but Colleen's & David's) and it's a keeper!!!
Choosing a tree is definitely one of the best parts of Christmas. The smells of fresh evergreens amid the cool air can bring back some pretty powerful memories of  Christmas' past.
Funny how that works, one moment you are 30something hunting for that perfect tree, and in an
instant you are magically transported back to being 6 years old again, and feeling the wonder and anticipation  that Christmas brings to a child. This is truly the magic of Christmas!!
But I digress, back to the tree :)
Colleen & David did a great job picking "that perfect tree". 
I am told David has a knack for zeroing in on that "perfect tree". Well if his talents lie in picking just
the right tree (and they certainly seem to), then Colleen's definitely lie in decorating the tree, and
creating a warm and welcoming environment. It certainly makes my job easy as I sit on a recliner typing this,in a warm, festive room with a GORGEOUS Christmas tree looming over me. What a hard life!!!!

Beautiful job guys :)

Even their pets are festive, except Puddin' she is camera shy, but not to worry, we'll get her ;)
