Looking back at some of my creations this past year

I got some family pictures developed last week and decided to develope some of my craft pictures

 that I made this past year.

 I kinda amazed myself. Of course I have made many bonnets and some stitcheries, but it

was probably fall when I started making some other things, I will show just a few pictures. I am excited

about the new year  and want to learn how to do even more things this year. And it would have never

been possible without the helpful tips and encouragement of my wonderful blogging friends. Thank You All!

Wishing everyone a Happy and safe New Year!


  1. Happy New Year Lecia!
    Your creations make me smile. That pic of the bonnets hanging would make a beautiful prim card! Keep up the great work my friend!
    Blessings to you and your family for a wonderful 2012!
    Hugz, Jean

  2. Golly, you've made beautiful things this year.
    It's really evident when you put it all
    together in a photo series like that.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
