It has been a busy couple of months!  Craft shows and craft booths have kept me hopping.

The craft shows are done for the year except for my Craft Open House.  This I do each year on the second weekend in December.  Here are the details and I invite you to come if at all possible:

Humble Heart Designs Craft Open House
2287 Sawmill Road
Ferrum, VA


We serve taco soup and finger foods to all who enter and the hand made crafts and gifts are amazing.
Photography, Quilting, Crochet, Knitting, Wood working, and Personalized Ornaments.  So much fun and friendship!  You won't want to miss it!

Getting the place spruced up for the event!

Have a blessed week!

An Artist in the Making

I have the pleasure of babysitting my great nephew who is 2 1/2 years old.  He is a pleasant, happy kid who enjoys every adventure we attempt together.  This kid never cries unless something is really wrong and even when he has his momentary meltdowns, they are gone as quickly as they come.

While I do my crafting, I get him busy on a project sitting beside me at the work table.  He loves to paint with my watercolors. And these are easy to clean up.  I give him 4x6 cards to paint and his color choices are great.

Yesterday,  I decided to use his paintings as backgrounds for some Halloween silhouettes and this is how they look.


A Blessed Day to All

The witches boots are currently drying

Be sure to check out my booths at Buy the Season and Blue Ridge Antiques.  

Hope you all are creatively busy as well.  Be Blessed

Lovely Saturday!

Spent the day at the General Store on Smith Mountain Lake today.  Crafters and Artisans set up in the parking lot on the 2nd Saturday of each month during the summer. and I have met so many new customers and friends.

Crafters are a special type of "family".  We are all passionate about what we do.  I love it when people can get together and share their God given talents with others. I have been blessed with many new friendships!

Here are a couple of pictures of my booth.

It was a blessed day!

Ok, we're getting close to busy season again.  Where has the summer gone?  Lately, I've been working on Christmas ornaments to sell in my Etsy store.

This tends to be my favorite time of the year for crafting.

Almost Finished!

 Once in a while I just have an uncontrollable urge to hand quilt a project. Finished this little wall hanging.  Now I just need to get the binding done.

That little bird has to be my favorite block in the quilt. 

Be Blessed Everyone,

New Booth at Blue Ridge Antiques

Finally opened up a booth at the Blue Ridge Antique Center in Rocky Mount.  This antique, furniture, and home decor mall is located just north of the town of Rocky Mount on route 220. If you haven't been, you really are missing a fun shopping trip.  This place is filled with lovely vintage, handmades, antiques, and discounted furniture.  A lovely place to visit.
I thought I'd post pictures of my booth there.  It's found on the 5th row, booth # 33. I'm at the back of the row on the corner. Come see!

Back Again!

After a January break, I'm back to blogging and enjoying a pretty busy schedule.  I am inspired to work on spring projects.  I know we are in for a little more cold temperatures, but it's really nice to think about the warmth of springtime.  It's on it's way!

I am proud to announce that I have opened a booth at Blue Ridge Marketplace and Antiques located just north of Rocky Mount on route 220.  My daughter in law, Olivia, manages there and I am so excited to be one of their vendors.  When you drop by, check out my booth # 33.  Pictures later when I get decorated.

Here are some projects I have been working on for the last couple weeks.

Decoupaged Eggs- These are decoupaged with old hymnal pages and embellished with one of my handmade shabby  flowers.

My hand made conversation hearts. You can find the tutorial on a past blog of mine.

I am very proud of this vintage mason jar lamp.   The shade is covered with muslin and embellished with shabby chic flowers and bead trim.

I hope everyone is having a blessed new year.  I know that God is going to bless 2014 with many miracles and much happiness.

Thanks for dropping in and be blessed,
