I have decided to dust off my Ebay shingle and go back to selling some items. So I am getting ready to offer Miss Ida Mae. I really love this doll...she is from a You Are Special pattern... It is funny, I have made several of these, but they all have their own "personality".
Her herb bag is filled with Sweet Annie...there is just something about that scent that I really like. I have had bundles of it upstairs in my workroom..and I love the fragrance as it greets me going up the stairs!!!
Well...I just thought I would share her with you....
Hope you have had a great week.....I am taking a few days off. Lots of Spring Cleaning and doll making are on the agenda.

Seems like I have an off and on relationship with paper arts. I LOVE decorative papers, pens, rubberstamps, etc...but lately there has been no time to play with them. So I am like some miserly old man from a Dickens novel, hoarding them away for "someday"....
BUT....a few months ago, I was browsing through some old paper arts magazines I had. I ran across Heidi Swapp articles (love her!!!)...and she talked about circle journals. Loved the ideas in the article and I did actually sit down and make one. It has started to make the rounds of my friends that I want to do a page in it.
The front of the journal says, " What are you to do with this, you say? le me know ho you feel about your life TODAY. Write it, art it or just have fun!! whatever you do...Do it Today!"
Well.....what would your response be????

Well, I know this will be hard to believe...but I am working at being more committed with this blogging thing. But I realized that I needed to work on seperating my personal blog from info that I wanted to do for the shop. Therefore, there is now a new blog for Folkheart.....
As I am working to switch some things over there....I still have to admit that working there and making my handcrafts to sell in the shop takes up much of my time, so there is no way to get distance from the store totally. So with that in mind, I wanted to post several new pictures I have of the shop displays.....
Wishing you a wonderful week!!!
Btw...check out the guest book and leave me a note!!!

Sometimes I just get lost....in all the day to day "stuff" that we have to do. In all this busy-ness I forget to do things that I love. Then there come the time when I finally am worn out...and have a huge AHA moment that maybe, just maybe, I need to regroup and get back to some of the basics.
Reading, journaling, meditating.....just remembering to BREATHE on a regular basis would help!!! LOL It is not that anything is really wrong....it is just that I am a better person when I remember to do my gratitudes each day..those things help me get a clearer view of what is going on around me and that regardless of what is going on....I am truly and completely blessed.
So this is me...trying to get back to a positive routine. Yep, I will fall off the wagon, but I always know I can find my way home again when I need too.
Hugs to you all.....
