This is a Beautiful Matching Kindle E-Reader Cover and Matching Prayer Journal from Dianne
Gersbeck. I received these today...right when I needed a bit of love and encouragement!
Thanks Dianne!



This is the Kindle Cover...that fits my new smaller Kindle Version Perfectly! How pretty
is that fabric!!!! And Look at the adorable floral button. Looks like it is growing on the tree.



This gorgeous prayer journal is going to get a lot of use!

Dianne you will just never know how absolutely "Timely" your gift was. If my tears weren't
all cried out from my circumstances lately...I would have just sat down and cried my heart
out when I opened these today. God used you to bless me...more than you can imagine.
Thank You...Heart to Heart!

blessings,
peggy

I haven't been on in a while, but I'm going to have to catch up. You guys always inspire me.
My daughter wanted to add what shes been working on. It is her first try at embroirdery. The bib came in a box of stuff at an auction. I think the picture is really big, sorry, don't know how to change that.

Peggy, Thank you so much for posting the pics of the Kindle Case and Prayer Journal I made for you. It was MY pleasure! And your pictures are so much better than mine!
Fellow Farmgirls, Your work and creativity is such an inspiration to me. I read many creative blogs and magazines, but I find much of my creative inspiration from you and the folks at MJF. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Good Luck Susan! Go Susan Go Susan Go Susan!!!!!

Dutchy I love that cowl. I've been drawn to that type of yarn lately myself.

Dianne, I think this is a great place for inspiration. We're just everyday women and not "professionals." Which means any of us can do these projects. It's not quite so intimidating. Your work is VERY nice.

Well, this is the first little dress that turned out usable ;D

Dutchy...love your cowl. I made about four of them a couple years ago as Christmas gifts and I was just thinking the other day that I should make me one for the colder months. So, you re-inspired me! As soon
as I get moved I think I will do that.

Carla...your dolls dress turned out really cute...but must admit the doll is kinda creepy looking. I
have never seen those before.

Dianne...those pictures were just with my cell phone...so yeah they turned out pretty good for not
using my real camera. I just so love them... and I keep showing them off. Used the prayer journal for the
first time yesterday...doing my daily devotional. I am carrying both of them in my purse!

What am I working on today? PACKING! Hope to move some of our boxes and wall pictures over today. My son is having a professional cleaner come and clean the kitchen and bathrooms tomorrow night...so, I don't want to haul to much over there until she is done.

Have a great day you "Crafty" - Ladies.

Belated answer to Sheri--I posted to this topic but forgot to subscribe to it, and just now found it again....I'll eventually get it all figured out but this is such a huge site with so many threads I'm still finding my way around. Sheri, I make dolls of just about anything but my favorite is the polymer clay (Prosculpt) heads over a tinfoil armature, and a wire armature stuffed--sounds like that is what you do. I started a dollmaker thread to see if I could find other dollmakers to share ideas with, but its not gotten a lot of traffic. There must be thousands of threads to follow.
.....this website is a whole new world to me and I think I could spend 8 hours a day on it. I have not had time to look at all those wonderful MJF newsletters yet either. Ladies, all those art & craft items you posted pics of are wonderful!! wow, you are all so talented! Now when I lose my enthusiasm for whatever I'm trying to do I can come to this website and get re-inspired from all you wonderful ladies.

Hi Juanita...Oh you are a good grandma, sewing those Christmas Jammies for the grans. I love that
you are using "Grinch" flannel. How fun will that be! They will love them!!!! You should find some
plush Grinch stuffed toys...so they can snuggle in bed with them in their grinch P.J.'s. Wouldn't that
just make those Jammies even more fun and delightful? ~ Honestly girlfriend, I haven't even started thinking about Christmas yet Except for MJF Swaps. Will deal with Christmas after I get moved!

Hi Dianne...you are so funny! And Such a Sweetheart!! Don't you just love what Bunny made for us!
I knew you would enjoy it too. She is very talented like you are. Farm Sisters are the Bestest Ever!!
We each seem to have our Crafting Talents.

Have a Great Evening Girls!

Hugs,
Peggy

Well, what a bummer. Not one sale! Not even many coming into my Iwhen I went to lunch after the show. I tok a photo of the booth and sent it to my sister, she does antique shows. Her comment was a riot! Said I looked like I was trying to sign people up for medical exams. Well, we laughed hysterically, but it was true. My husband told me that you could not tell that I am a visual display artist, and he was correct!I guess I scared people off with the table blocking the entrance of the booth. So............. I went "display shopping" today and came up with some real goodies (I think). I am showing the photo from the original booth and next week I will send a photo showing the new, improved look and will smile about my sales. (Gee, I hope, I hope!) Can't give up as I'm too far in debt to quit.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Here is the photo. And, thank you to all that encouraged me, I really appreciate it.[IMG]http://www.maryjanesfarm.org/Snitz/Images/October show 002.JPG[/IMG By the way, the computer ate some of the words up above. I sold a purse off my shoulder when I went to lunch after the show so I don't think it's the purses.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Hey Susan, you sold one! Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

I love that doll dress. What a good job.

Here's the hat I finished today. I have some other stuff started but not sure what I want to work on most.
