Sign up closes at midnight tonight for 
Week two giveaway 

I will be adding a new giveaway for week three
and announcing week two's winner tomorrow


Added a New snowman to my 


As some of you know almost two years ago I started
an etsy team called Folkart and Primitives
We have kick started Cyber week 
with a celebration on etsy


This celebration will involve a coupon for a week 
after it is over. I am doing mine a bit different

all of my customers this week, I forgot to include the coupon
most are not including it until December 1st
But for this weeks customers and from now until Christmas
I will include the coupon in my packages for everyone to use
starting right away !!!
for those that have made purchases this week
I will contact you and notify you of the amount and the
code to use on Etsy 

I am thinking of taking off from Jan. 1st to the 15th
Have not made up my mind on that yet !!
so you may get to start using it earlier :) 
I am itching to make Bunnies

I will not reveal the amount on the coupon 
it will be a set amount, more then what I normally offer my
repeat customers. But I am adding a twist to it

Everyone that has purchased from me this week until the end of 
the year will be in a drawing
The winner of that drawing will get a SPECIAL coupon
for a larger percentage off 

This has been a wonderful year for me
my friends that share my work 
and my customers have made that possible

I am truly Blessed to be able to work from home
Doing what I love to do !!

Been busy lots of new items, and chicken update

Well for openers, let's just say 
HEY it is still darn Cold out there *sigh*

I am Happy to announce I am getting eggs now
I will say the Black Hen does not like me moving her
off of them and taking them away from her :o)

Been busy busy here with orders

I have a few more of them I am working on now 

Hope you are enjoying your Weekend
Stay warm out there

Easter *big Grin* Wow

Good Morning on this not so Warm Morning

I am trying to get my chickens to understand that the clock 
has changed I do not want to do the 7 AM feeding LOL

It is Cold and only going to get colder
So with Shelby and Rango sitting in their window throwing 
a fit at a Squirrel I thought ok I will go feed 
the chickens and the Cat

my first three chickens that the wild dogs got in the spring time
these three were consistent with laying eggs everyday

My youngins, Ellie and Gidget,
these gals have really filled out and grown
they should of started laying around the end of October
with the cold coming in I figured I was not going to get any eggs
or not MANY


The old White one her name is Granny
or Chicken soup as Hubby calls her because she
has yet to lay eggs, we figured she was just old 
The Black one her name is Mammy 
she laid from day one every day 
and about three weeks or so ago decided she wanted to
nest !!! And let me tell you she is MOODY !!
So we have been eggless or so I thought??


I go out there in the cold open their coop to let them out
and by their ramp is a little brown egg
I got so excited to think I had another hen laying!!
*point in having Chickens LOL*
Well for three days now
The old gal has been hiding up in a corner I can not reach
in the nest! I have to pull her out to get her to get a drink and eat
and she would go right back to the nest!!

I had a hard time getting hold of her this morning and up under
her straw I see the top of an egg, as I pulled on her I see another
one OMG !!!! I am cramming eggs in my coat pockets SMILE

most I am sure are not good I will do the test on them
But apparently we have layers again YAY !!!!
I see a Big Omelet dinner in my near future *SIGH*

sorry I am excited, and Hubby now has to go out in the cold
and put another door on that corner so I can get into it
without struggling to reach
And by the way I am sure Miss Mammy is going to 
be really put out with me now :o)

Shelby and Rango are because I did not let them out in time
to catch the squirrel LOL !!
