some new prims for me!!!

Good evening friends! Hope you all had a wonderful day today. The sun was shining for awhile here but there was a nip in the air. I am so ready for one good snowstorm here in Central PA. My mom says they are going to be getting more snow this weekend, she lives in southern PA and they have had their fair share of snow this year. I want it to snow to kill some of those germs. My daughter came home from school this afternoon with 101.7 temperature so guess I'll be staying home from work tomorrow. Hopefully I'll do some more sewing. Speaking of sewing here's my creations for today. I needed some hearts for my new Longaberger basket and I've been on a prairie doll craze lately so I made this one for myself. She is sitting on top of a glass candle holder that I picked up at the thrift store. Well, guess that's all that is new this evening, maybe I'll have something new to show you tomorrow.

Decluttering stinks!

I'm having a really hard time simplifying my home. I thought it would be easy to just get rid of "stuff". Boy was I wrong!!! This past weekend I spent the better part of Sunday rearranging my displays. Well, like most women I tend to start out strong then putter out in the end. I also am one of those "multi-taskers" who thinks they can rip and tear everything in the house apart and then put it all back in some semblance of order. So needless to say here are some of my new displays with my most favorite prims.

busy, busy, busy

Well friends I started sewing again today after mind you there was housework to be done but that had to wait while the creative juices were flowing! I made simple prairie dresses today! Eight of them to be exact. They look so cute. Now tomorrow I will go out in the yard and collect sticks to hang them from. If anyone is interested in purchasing one just shoot me an email at
I am also going to be offering my prairie dolls for sale as well so just ask and I'll email you back ASAP.

Pizza night tonight everyone. Nothing fancy just store bought. I know its probably cheaper to make from scratch! Tomorrow will be leftover lasagna and salad.

Hope you all have a great weekend and check back in tomorrow to see some pictures!

The new do!!!

well be gentle girls...this was a big step for me101_0925 here's a picture from yesterday when my hairdresser styled it

Time for a change

While trying to lighter the load on my house I decided to give myself a makeover as well. So after 5 years of the same do I changed the style of my hair. Got it cut and colored, yes I'm so vain that I gotta hide the gray that my children have blessed me with! So now this new look is going to take some getting used too. It is straight so I gotta use a flat-iron. Can't wait to see what my pre-schoolers say cause you know they say what they think!!! Have a great day everyone and thanks for following or popping in to read my blog. Hugs Theresa

did alittle cleaning and rearranging

Yesterday I just couldn't stand it anymore. Stuff had to go and be moved around. The livingroom needed dusted so while I removed all the things on the fireplace to dust I decided to give alittle facelift. I was a bad girl yesterday and stopped at a favorite prim shop and bought myself alittle something. Do you love the runner or what?! I runners and napkins and all those little colonial goodies. Oh and I didn't just buy this, no, no....I got another runner and a napkin too. I will show you where I put those in another post.

What do you think of those hearts? I didn't make them...but I'm going to make some more! I have some made but they are much smaller and mine are out of colonial printed fabric.

My "lil sis" stopped by today and brought me some of her yummy fresh eggs. We had the best time just chatting and talking crafting. Gotta love friends that like what you like(not all of it)but some...she doesn't like things too dirty and grungy, but I'm working on her!

Well, friends hope you have a great weekend and stay warm wherever you are!!!!!

My first post!!!

Welcome friends, I've decided to join blog-land! Not sure how much I'll have to say but I'll give it a try. I will be posting pictures of things I make and whatever else tickles my fancy. Right now I am trying to declutter like so many other friends of mine. SIMPLIFY I say!!! Well it ain't easy for me!!! Hubby calls me the "corner-stuffer" and for good reason....I don't think there is one corner in my house that doesn't have something in it....whether it be prims, shoes, toys or just stuff that needs a home. So my goal for 2010 is to put my house on a DIET!!! There I said it the dreaded D-word....I figure if the house is dieting and loosing clutter maybe some of my own "clutter" will drop off too!!!! One can only hope....I'll keep ya' posted!!!
