Wonderful blogging friends and swap goodes~ a few new creations (pics)


Isn’t it wonderful to have  good blogging friends. I have met some great friends here in blog land and I have to say some of the most talented, but humble.


One such special blogger is Jean of Prim Crafts! She is such a talented lady. I have had the pleasure of getting to know Jean and she is a wonderful giving, caring person. We have done some swaps and I have several of her wonderful creations in my home. I especially love her Santa’s!


I had inquired of Jean a short time ago about making me another Santa to go with my Dickens themed items. I had sent her some material that I thought would work well and left the rest to her. This is her new creation that I have the pleasure to care for in my home. He is so amazing! Thank you so much Jean!!!


Not only did she send the Santa, but she also sent these adorable little mice. I have wanted a pair of  Pilgrim mice for a long time and the ones that she has created are perfect.


Thank you Jean! I love them all. I sure hope that she likes what I sent her. I always feel that what I send never compares to what I receive.


O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.  Psalm 107:1


I have a special this weekend on these signs below. Your choice ~$25 (bowl or jug) distressed edge or not. Email me at if you would like to order one.



I know everyone is getting excited to decorate for Christmas. There are so many inspirational decorating ideas going around the web this year. Pinterest is amazing, as well as so many decorating sites. I have a mix of Thanksgiving as well as Christmas going on right now. I like to keep all of my Pilgrim themed items out til the day after Thanksgiving. I have a few Christmas items out for my business photo shoots, but I can’t wait to pull everything out this year. I think I may have to pick and choose, since I have so many new creations. Some things will have to stay in the box as I just don’t have room for everything. I try to keep things and not toss them as my style is always changing. I have things that I like now that I used 20 years ago. I think styles always go in cycles. Have you already started to decorate?  It’s the most wonderful time of the year.


I will leave you with a few pics of some of my new creations.

  6. Hi Sara,
    I'm trying to play catch-up between stain drying on the crafts today.
    Santa looks quite at home~ and your sign boards are beautiful. I absolutely love the ones you sent. Do you make your own stencils? I bought a few stencils last year off ebay and still have no time to get any done. The stencils are so expensive, do you have a cutting machine for the designs? Such talent you have.
