Seriously Silly Saturday and a SURPRISE

A cheery Happy Saturday to you

Are you ready for this post?
It is LONG and the surprise is worth it
The title alone should make you think WHAT!

Rabbit is a design by Sassafras Hills Prims
I just used my imagination to make it into a faux pull toy
And to add the Vintage Canning Lid as a cart with carrots
I sort of Roll that way

so let's start out with the Seriously segment of my post

SERIOUSLY, wow what a wonderful response I have had to
the above giveaway, the amount of orders I have gotten 
for this little Rabbit and cart have been Unbelievable
I announced I was SOLD out, but hey while in one of my
mad dash I need that stuff, search parties *sigh* 
yes one of those moments when you are throwing boxes
open and looking for a certain item to finish a project
*I happened upon a few more lids*
(I really do need more room for this business of mine!)

By the way

And so now let's get to the Silly part of my post

They give away stuff, not sure if it is always a box filled with craft supplies, 
As I just started participating on their page
but they give it away to 20 people, the contest is to fill in the blank
I could not resist sharing this blank on my blog with you

Now when I Filled in the blank I did it simple and plain
But Seriously I wanted to break out into full fledged I can tell you
the answer to that one, but out of respect I did not want to write
a lengthy comment on their page, describing my life  *SMILE*

This week's question was 
Behind every crafter is a ___________

Fill in the blank!!
I believe my answer was simple and dumb enough that I 
would not stand a chance of winning LOL
it was something to do with strings on my clothing
YEAH: one of those oh just throw something on there deals

But Seriously: I always have strings hanging off of me,
regardless if I am dressed nice and headed out the door
or if I am in crafting attire just running a quick errand
I promise that attire is not the Normal, 
PJ'S I do not go out in public in my pj's
~ Hubby is often pulling strings off of the seat of my pants~
prior to going into a public place?? I just laugh !!

So let's have fun with this one?? what would your answer be?

I May not be Factory Direct's warehouse
*I may possibly pull in a close second place* 
ok maybe not that bad!

as I have more of what other's call Junk then the normal crafter hoards!
and to think I am all giddy because it is almost garage sale season
and I know I can find all sort of stuff I NEED ok Want :)

My answer would of gone something like this

A household consisting of a Patient hubby 
*there could not be a better one*

 Two very well trained mini schnauzers 
who know they have to wait until she can open the door to let them out due to paint on her hands or a project with needle and thread, really I am serious they patiently set under me and just look up and WAIT, 
ok they may whimper at me as if to say can you hurry Up
~the simple little whine as if to say I really do not want to bother you
but can you let me go outside to Pee~

 piles of I need to's, other piles of I want to's 
And Boxes of orders on a daily basis, 
stacks of fabric overflowing
and containers of started projects, counters covered with foil and painted projects, an oven door that is propped open all day long with a poor 
worn out HORRID looking cookie sheet covered in foil so my next 
project to dry can be tossed in there

*Three chickens who come to the front corner of my house 
to squawk at me every morning so I will come to feed them*
~and YEAH they are making their noise right now~

A CAT that comes to sit under my front window by my work table
hey she even flips her tail, that is her cue to say Woman
get out here I am HUNGRY!

This crafter's Life is a Mess so much so that one room or the other does 
not appear to be what that room is entitled to be, because my
business has taken over every nook and cranny I can possibly 
stuff full of CRAFTING supplies ~SIGH~

*the only room in my home that is for it's designated use it the bathroom*
and I can assure you, if I run out of space while in my multi tasking mad
crazy days and I need the counter I will utilize that room as well :)


While putting together a supply swap box for a fellow crafter this past week
I realized just how much stuff I had that I could spare extras of
*YEAH, there is a lot of that*
~but hey new's flash FACTORY DIRECT, I could always use more~

So I want to do a quick giveaway, Fill in that blank and I
will select a Winner to get a box of my overflow of craft supplies

We will run this this weekend and I will pick a Winner Monday Morning

And Now it is time to start my day, my crazy mixed up
I have work to do, and boxes to get packed sort of day 
My seriously Silly life

Have a wonderful weekend


  1. Great post Brenda...........having a patient hubby in this business is #1 on my list. Mine often things he's walking into a floral and gift shop some days. Even though I have a designated area in our basement for my work I've managed to take over two other rooms upstairs and part of his shed for storage. :)

  2. Behind every overactive brain cell bursting with new ideas.

    Hi Miss Brenda,

    We love this post, I was laughing so hard that I fell off the puter chair, but I landed on my bum so I didn't get hurt, maybe just a smidge of fiberfill shifted. Giggle.

    Prudence ☻

  3. A VERY understanding husband who appreciates what I do.

  4. kindred clutter bug!

    It is after all a contagious disease, and once you have it you are drawn to other KCBs and the things they create!

    No matter how I try, there is Always a mess when I craft! I honestly do not know if you Can craft and not make a mess.
    I do like the outcomes though. :)

  5. In my house behind every crafter is a two and three year old covered in paint. .. because they are usually grabbing bottles brushes and lids... hahaha but you gotta love it.. crystal.
    Ps brenda thank you once again for being such a wonderful and giving person

  6. That was a great post! I would say behind every crafter is a lot of what other people would call garbage..but we just might make something out of it someday! I feel so blessed to have one of those bunny carts! I love it!
    Have a great day!
    Be blessed,

  7. Behind every crafter is a house that should have been cleaned, a husband or wife that should have been fed, a dog with his legs crossed and a pile of laundry that should have been washed, dried and ironed.

  8. Behind every crafter is a legacy of fulfilled creativity and plenty of projects to remind future generations that this was one talented family member and boy were we lucky to have him/her!

  9. Behind every crafter is a person who knows what is important and is doing what she/he loves. We have enough serious stuff in life. We need to do what makes us smile.

  10. Is a to do list that never gets done.

  11. ....a creative free spirit! And I love your cute little rabbit. It's my favorite thing I have from you and it stays out all you know! Sweet hugs, Diane

  12. In my house behind every crafter are two very patient, and sweet furry babies. They know that when they ask for something, to be patient because I can not always jump up right away. The are quality control, customer service, and are the driving forces of the business. They are the very reason that I do what I do...and they are loved very much.

  13. Behind every crafter is a messy room and hoards of supplies

  14. is work never done! thanks!

  15. Behind every crafter is: a trail of sequins! (or fairy poo, as my DH calls it) Blessings and Peace

  16. My husband.We sat down to dinner, and he says, " Had the strangest dream." (Mind you, he's a cabinetmaker. ) " I was in this room, and someone says, the spools are running out of thread. I look up, and there are 3 big spools on a giant machine, and they are turning , and I can see the spool showing through the thread on them. I was worried, because I couldn' t find any more thread for the machine!" Guess K have imprinted on him. Gotta love him.

  17. Behind every crafter is a lot of cool junque that only we can see what it can become to be even cooler!! XOXO Love Fran.

  18. What a great idea!!! Behind every crafter is an awesome idea waiting to be created!! I know I have more ideas in my head then I have time for.

  19. Sign me up, Brenda! One can never have enough stash!

  20. Hi Brenda, I kno for me it is a pile of supplies just waiting for it's turn to be made into something.

  21. Behind every crafter is a garage so stuffed with supplies that you can't fit your car in (or anything else for that matter)!

  23. Hey Brenda; The answer I meant to post is this
    Behind every Crafter is a Happy "Someone" whom is more than willing to be a huge part of this Crafters Life!!! :-D
    Kisses for my Handsome Husband!!!!! :-)

  24. Behind every crafter is another wonderful trip for supplies!!

  25. I think this giveaway is over, but wanted to say thanks for the heads up about Factory Direct's Friday giveaways. I order from them several times a year. Maybe I can win some of my money back from them ;) And just to play along....behind every crafter is a adult daughter asking "mom, can you make me this?". Such a bummer she didn't get more crafty genes from me!
