New Etsy Shop!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well. It is snowing again here. We are at our second highest ever snow amounts in history for February.... and it isn't over yet!

I've been trying to stay busy... working on new designs and an Easter/Spring freebie to be released soon. I also decided to try my hand at an Etsy shop! I like the idea of an eBay type website but focusing on vintage/handmade/art type items.

I'd love to hear your comments on this. Have any of you ever bought or sold items on Etsy? Any opionions?

Hello all!

I am back from a family visit to Florida, having fun and visiting the in-laws! While it was a bit chilly there, it was soooo nice to escape the snow & cold for a bit (see last post... ug). I do miss the sunshine. Winter here has been a black & white world where the sky above exactly matches the cement below.

The first picture is of my 2 girls & their dad being goofy & barefoot at CoCoa beach. Oh how I love the beach!! Second is my youngest and her dad in front of the Disney castle.

I guess now it's back to reality!   : )

BEST to you all!

Hello everyone!

I sure hope that you all are staying warm! I woke up this morning to snow & ice and just had to capture some pictures of my yard. If you look closely, you can see the snow that continues to fall sparking in my flash! The pine trees are bending over with the weight, it is so quiet. The only sounds are the twigs snapping, the wind (shiver) and the sound of more snow falling. Yes, I can hear it, it sounds like salt falling out of a shaker.

Luckily, we knew this was coming, we are used to big snow storms here in the Appalachian foothills, so I was able to stock up on hot chocolate, candles (yup - we often lose electricity in weather like this - bring on the board games), books, and I have plenty of new designs to work on. We are under a level 2 snow emergency - so it's not suggested that people drive.... duh - I can't even find my driveway???

I see a snowman in my future... I think the girls will insist on it!

Stay warm and cozy! - Maria
