Hi Kristina, any chance you make Samplers(my decor is Primitive/Colonial)...I would be interested in either purchasing or bartering.

Hey ladies, thought I would post on here today. We have to go to the bretheran bible study tonight and I will be making a long jean skirt. I got it all cut out last night. I just need to put the two pieces together. Simple and easy, except for the zipper, don't know if I have one.

This falls in to Nifty Thrifty, Re-purpose and Crafting today.

Finished these ornaments and have started packing them up for Christmas. Then I'll be working in my "craft" closet and clearing it up for summer. There are soooo many other projects I can do, but I have to put restraints on today. The porch is calling my name today.

I finished up the skirt at about 11 am here it is, plus some fingerprints on my mirror


It was really fun and easy to do. My son has been very needy today so I think it would have taken me less time if I did not have to get up so much... Ohh well the joy of children.

Now that I am done with that it is onto a little dress for my daughter. It is purple with white polka dots using this pattern with the sleeve

Emily! I love the length on that skirt. How is the waist made? Do you sell those or take orders? I would love to have one next fall when I lose more weight.

Peg ~ love the alpaca yarn.

Messaged you Kristina. I made mine too big, so there is about 4" of excess on the inside seams and then I blind stitched them down.

I guess I needed to be more specific. Not that I dont like these ones. I want to stay with the natural looking wood door and just change the colors of the flowers and add a bird or butterfly. Im sure these will sell on your store though. I like the key holes on these ones though.

I would like for the doors to look like this with the rocks around the top. Just change the flower colors to the combos that I asked for and add a butterfly or bird to them. Thanks sorry I should of been more specific.

Marcy...your doors are sooooooooooooooo adorable! I did get my step glued back on.
I am going to paint my leaves green also on mine. But you did send the exact door I
wanted. ~ Just a Suggestion for selling them: Obiviously everyone has their own unique
idea of what they want their door to look like. So, you should just make about 10 or 12
different ones for demo purposes and to sell on your etsy store. But allow people to
tweek them here and there to add their own personal touches....but maybe charge a tad
bit more for allowing them to do that. What do you think? I know one of these days I am
going to see another one that you made and go "Oh, that is perfect...I want that one too!"
You are SOOOOOOO VERY TALENTED Marcy. I think I am going to buy a Medium size terra cotta
pot and make my own indoor Fairy House. I will post pictures once I get it done. Probably
won't be for a couple of weeks though.

So Blessed To Have A Marcy Fairy Door! Oh, also you should sign and date the inside of the
doors as you make them. Like maybe in gold or silver marking pen.

hugs and smiles,
Peggy

Asiyah... we aren't all cowboy boots and bib-overhauls all the time. In fact many of us are just Farmgirl Wanna-be's. LOL I totally love your skirt & high heels very chic. One of my favorite sayings is:
