Valentines For Kids

Valentines Day is coming!

I am sure that you already have a list of the classmate’s names for the Valentines swap; if you don’t have it already not to worry it is coming!

A little story……..

When I was about 6 and in the 1st grade, Valentines lists went home and all the kids including myself filled out Valentines for our classmates. Well when I got to school the day of the swap, we all handed out our valentines to each other…..well everyone except me………I did not get one single valentine!! My name somehow didn’t make it on the list! My Mom didn’t think anything of it when we were using the list and my name wasn’t on it because she figured it was left off of my list because I wouldn’t need to fill one out for myself. I was devastated, I remember running to the car when My Mom picked me up crying and telling her what happened. Mom quickly sprang into action and took me on a shopping spree for all things Valentines Day! My Mom as usual saved the day and fixed her Daughters broken heart! Moms just the best at doing that sort of thing! It was truly a day I will never forget!

So, let us not forget any kids names and make Valentines Day special for all the classmates!

Anyway….

When I get the list the first thing I do is go to Pinterest and look for ideas. I mean really is there any other spot to go look for ideas? Pinterest is amazing, although it can be overwhelming at times, information and idea overload……and I swear, I just logged in like 5 mins ago…….45 mins ago oops lol!!

So, I thought I would cut your  time spent on Pinterest and compile a list of a few of my favorite ideas I found on Pinterest! I made a board dedicated to Valentines For School!

What I Have I Been Doing?

Hello All,
I wanted to check in and see how everyone has been and share some things!
Well to start we got notice that we have to move…
this came as quite a surprise, but like it or not it is what it is.
I hate moving and packing and finding a place etc..
I am however excited because I will be moving closer to my family
and my booth and local to all shopping needs also. 
We are currently 30+ min from all of those things now 
which creates some issues some days!
Anyway, the booth is doing great and I love having it!
It gives me a reason to hunt for goodies to fill it up and a reason to make things also!
Tomorrow I will be moving from one space in the shop to another bigger space,
I wanted more floor space and the current spot I am in doesn’t off that.
I will be sure to share lots of pics when I am done!
I have been doing a little creating lately I am not really big
on Valentines and Easter crafting, but I have made a couple things!

We also got a puppy he is half lab half husky!
We named his Raja and he is just adorable!
Well having him inspired me to make a few things,
I made him a leash hanger as we seem to keep losing the leash!
Then I took and old blanket and made him a dog bed, he seems to like it!

So, those are a few things I have made recently!
I listed them on Etsy and I also made some bunnies for the booth!
I hope your all enjoying the new year!

Advice & A Creating Addiction!

Hi I am Janice, and I am a crafting addict!
Except I don’t want any treatment LOL!!
I have been crafting like CRAZY the last few weeks.
I am trying to get my booth all filled up
and ready for Fall/Halloween.
That way I can give myself
plenty of time for Christmas creating!
I know it seems kind of far off, but it will be here before we know it!!
Here is some of the goodies I have been making:
 These pumpkins are made from 1×3’s
These pumpkins are made from 2×4’s
Americana Star Stack
A rug I painted

Outhouse!
These are just a few of the things I have brought to the booth.
I am going there on Wed. to do some
rearranging and tweaking and some decorating
for fall hopefully it will come out good!
I will be sure to share pics!
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
I still have a TON of unfinished stuff I need to get working on
Here is a picture of some of my stash
Lots n Lots of Trash To Treasure Stuff!
I sometimes wish I had a partner who was willing to help.
It is hard to find someone who is willing to give a hand.
I have actually been looking into opening my own shop!
My Mother mentioned it to me the other day
and offered her help, financially and physically!!
How can I turn that down???
So, I have been writing up a business plan and
looking into ideas and options.
I don’t want to just jump into something like that it is a
BIG step, and I don’t want to mess it up!
I want to do something similar to renting space to
other crafters and maybe antique dealers.
Charging a monthly fee, no consignments.
Anyone Have Any Ideas or Suggestions?
Maybe some real life experience you can share?
The do’s and don’ts?
I would love to hear it all…
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!

My Finished Hutch Bottom and A New Selling Blog!

Hello,
Here is the bottom of my hutch all finished!!
I didn’t go with punched tin, none of the pieces came in the size I needed!
I went with brushed bronze handles and what I believe is a type of radiator cover for the doors!
It is aluminum and is a matte black! I really like the way it turned out!

I also wanted to share with you a blog that is a very good friend of mine!
My friend Deb has just re-vamped her selling blog!!
Deb makes some pretty amazing things!!
Please go and see her blog and tell me what you think!!

Goat Creek Mercantile
When your there make sure you become a follower,
there is a lot more she will be adding soon!
On another note, I have been working on a few things myself!
