A little Facelift!

Hello !! Remember me?? 
I pop in here every now and then!! LoL
Time just seems to get away from me all the time!
I've been sewing up a storm, to get together stock for my ebay shop which is almost at the point of opening! Taking photos of things that will be for sale like mad too!
I gave my blog a little "facelift" and changed my header picture! (btw everything in the pic is for sale!)
I'm also learning to drive my new computer! Usually that would be pretty easy, but we decided to take the plunge and go for a mac this time. I must say it takes a little to get used to but so far so good!

What was she thinking?

Surfing my fav blogs I came across a thread of What was She thinking in wich they are confessing to all kinds of silly things they bought.

As the perfect woman, I never buy anything silly, but I am going to dob in my Hubby!

Many many years ago (about 8y ago) J and I went to our first auction together, and after about an hour of looking at things I had what I wanted ticked on the catalog! I also had a little star next to a (what I thought was an UGLY) cake stand. At some point the stand had separated from the plate and some one did a shoddy job repairing it! The star (as any thinking person would know) was there to remind me that I wanted to see if it sold and if it did what some idiot would pay for it! 2 items before the cake stand nature called and I handed J the catalog as the item after the cakestand was something I really wanted (don't remember what it was anymore LoL) and wrote the price I was willing to pay next to it. I left to answer Nature's call.

As I was coming back the cakestand auction was just finishing and there was a bit of a bidding war happening, in the end some Idiot paid $26.50 for it, and Yes, I am married to that "Idiot"!!

Lol J thought the star meant it was something I really REALLY wanted! So he wasn't going to be outbid if his Sweety wanted it, she was going to get it! He thought it was an ugly thing, but if Jazy wanted it e was going to get it lol

Of course now I'm stuck with it! You can't throw something like that out! It would be like throwing out that "lovely" bathsalt the kids get you for Mother's day!!So without further Ado, my Prim friends: Meet UGLY Cakestand
So on wedding Anniversaries and other Special Occasions it comes out and takes pride of place on the table!

And again Time flies!

I was checking my blog and realized it has been ages since I posted!

My Excuse is I've been busy, busy, busy!

I'm in the middle of setting up an online shop for Prims (will let you all know when I'm open!), and besides drooling over all the goodies to buy for the shop, I'm also crafting up a storm to make items to sell as well.

Let me give you a few examples of what I've been making!

I've already sold the little Shoo-Fly cover in the middle picture on eBay (small suitcase should be up on ebay later today!), got a few more on the go. The Prairie Pantry Cakes have been sold too. The 1812 doll is made from a Primitive Pear pattern

Saturday Sportsday!

Another Hockey Season has started! Actually this is the 3rd week of the season, so back we are to sitting in a cold car with plenty of craft magazines and craftwork to work on!
I have to admit I'm not a sports fan! most sports put me to sleep!
So I stay home most home games and cook biscuits etc for when the hungry hords come home, but away games I sit in the car and "watch" them play ( OK so I do get sidetracked by the magazines and craftwork I bring!)
We've managed to take some pictures today.
L looks so tall with his short hair! I wonder where my baby went! D is getting prettier all the time too! Time sure flies!
