Tribute fo a fellow crafter!

I was honored to know a wonderful lady Sandy Schmidt, her blog was "The Olde Country Cupboard"

She had the most wonderful blog, and if you went to the bottom of her blog she had several

patterns to download and giveaway. She was so willing to share her talent and was so giving.

  Her web site was "The Olde Country Cupboard"

Sandy had a long battle with cancer and passed away last week. She was one of the most talented ladies

I have ever known in crafting. But she was so down to earth. I remember years ago buying a pattern from

her and she had made me several things over the years. I love prairie things and she had a talent for

making prairie things, I had bought an old dresser drawer display with prairie dolls in it, a prairie bag

holder doll and Hannah a prairie Christmas doll. I will cherish these items from Sandy.

  She would give me pointers and help me if I had any questions in my crafting adventure. Please

remember Sandy's family as she is laid to rest tomorrow.

I found a wonderful article about Sandy that I want to share, Please click on the link to

read an interview she gave  "Interview with Sandy"

She was a twin and her sister Cyndy does crafts also. She is talented like Sandy and I own some of her

creations. Please remember all of the family as they go through this difficult time. Sandy leaves behind

her husband, daughter, granddaughter, sister, mom and so many friends that loved her.

She made the world a much better place and was beautiful inside and out, she will be

missed greatly. I am so honored and humbled to have known her!!! RIP sweet Sandy.

  1. I, too, had read her blog and admired Sandy's creations. I also admired her strength to keep going even though she was fighting that awful battle. She was an inspiration to many, I know.
    I had sooooo hoped that she would be able to conquer that terrible disease. I am a cancer survivor so I know how it affects ones mind and body.
    Blessings to her family. I know her beautiful, talented daughter will be lost without her Mom. I'm so, so sorry for loss that the whole family is suffering.
    Sincerely,
    Charlotte in Virginia

Only knowing her through our blogs and websites she truly was a gem. She will be deeply missed but as I said the other day she will live on in our hearts and hands as we all continue to create her wonderful patterns!

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.
