Catching Up Part 2

I am working on setting up new web pages to list The Crafter’s Workshop stencils on.  If you haven’t seen these yet, these are some of the newest hottest selling products on the market.  I started working on new pages last year and now am back at it.   I am selling them quite well out of my etsy shop.

Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is a new designer with her own designs for The Crafter’s Workshop.  Her is her Henna Hands and Punchinella.

Another designer is Victoria Case.  This is her Aspen Trees and Bamboo stencils.

And more Julie Balzer designs with Flower Frame and Leaf Frame.  I am looking into carrying more of her designs.  With designers coming on board to create the designs, let’s hope  The Crafter’s Workshop can keep up with making all the orders!  Until I get my web pages up, see my etsy shop for these stencils.

Finding Bargains

Last Friday morning I left for Evansville to do some shopping before heading over to Ferdinand to set up for Quilter’s Day Out.  My great niece has a birthday this week and I hadn’t gotten anywhere to get her some art supplies.  I found these awesome “things” in clearance and put the last 4 in my cart.  They are wonderful teal and curry colors, which are very popular with me.  I have not been much to decorate my house lately, but these things just sort of jumped out at me. I love the colors!

I was in the checkout all prepared to purchase everything in my cart.  The lady in front of me laid some floral thingies on the counter that caught my eye…she said they were on clearance too…for 50 cents each…so off I went in search of those.  I thought they were so interesting…sort of like the puff balls from gone-to-seed dandelions, but these were still yellow.  I found them and bought all that was left as well as throwing in some berry branches for nice contrast.  They were on clearance too.  I’m quite pleased with my new home decorations. Spring must be here.


It was a nice, sunny, cool-er morning in New Harmony.  I found lots of photo inspiration there today.

Everything’s Coming Up…Flowers!

My whole yard is in bloom! The peonies were starting when I left on Tuesday…now the bushes are climbing with large flowers.  I failed to get my rosebushes trimmed and now one is making some glorious blossoms.  I don’t really care for the miniature rosebushes because there is no smell even though the flowers are quite nice…but they are also going crazy with blooms…must be all this rain we have had….it’s very windy here today as storms are forecasted for the area.
