Hey guys - I know, I know...been awhile. I thought I'd squeeze in some HGTV time. I do miss you guys, I really do.

I am trying to go out of 2013 with a bang for craft shows. I am back to painting again - getting lots done too. Well at least I am clearing out sections of my craft room at a time. (lol) If only I could stay off Pinterest. I got a new camera last year & have yet to learn all of the features. It's on my list of things to do. Plus use up as much of my craft supplies that I can. And I am pleasantly surprised that I have managed to do just that. I was gifted some really nice craft supplies & it brought me great pleasure to finally get them incorporated with my crafts for this year.

I need to come up with some new crafts to offer this season. So what's popular besides burlap? I sold a ton of chocolate felt bunnies this past Spring. Still have maybe 10 left to finish up. I am starting on elf shoes using green felt. Then I am going to work on some red felt ideas.

I am not working on redneck wine glasses or red solo cups. They managed to get saturated this past year. I do have a case left of mason jars but I think I am going to use them for canning next year. (when I retire...hahahaha)

Anyways-been enjoying my grandson this summer. I can't wait for my lil Sophie to get to that age. Did I mention I am pinning American Doll & Barbie & baby doll clothes & furniture? Ok---another "add to my list" thing.

I'll try to get back when I can. I miss you guys!

as always,

Debi O'

Debi, I have always loved following your wonderful crafting. I bought a couple of light bulbs from you many years ago for my son. They were pigs (as he has been collecting pigs since he was little) and he loves hanging them on his Christmas tree each year. Would love to know how to find you on Pinterest so I can follow you. Thanks again for all your talents.

awh, thanks for the compliment on the pigs. I have put the pigs on the back burner. Hmmm - guess I had better bring them out. Geeee I am becoming overwhelmed with stuff I need to get busy on.

Thanks again. Made my day!

as always,

I'm so jealous. I'm not sleeping well either but can't get motivated to finish much of anything.

Use that new camera to snap all sorts of pics - flowers, shrubs, trees, nature walks, animals, etc.. Then find a favorite photo website and collage the different pics into notecards or personalized insert tags. It's a great way to play with your camera and come away with showing off your creativity...
