Good Evening to everyone. I not sure about where you live but it sure is cold here. If you live where they are getting all that snow, then I know your cold. It does look so pretty and looks fun to go sledding in but that would be about all I would do.
We are just getting a few snow flurries every once in awhile and that is as close to snow as we are getting. But my thougth is if it is this cold then let it snow or bring on the sun shine and the warm weather.
I am not a winter person. I love the summer hot days. 90 degree temps don't bother me at all. I love it.
I wanted to let you know that I have listed a primitive Valentine doll on ebay. She is holding 2 Annie dolls are that are so sweet.
I was so hoping that it would pass by our house this year but no such luck. I took a nap on christmas day and woke up sick and it has just went down hill from there.
I hope to get some Valentine Goodies listed next week, that is if this yucky stuff leaves. I hate being sick. I am resting on the couch and letting hubby wait on me and taking my meds and hoping this stuff leaves me fast.
Hope everyone is staying well and getting ready to celebrate New Years. Stay safe out there if your getting all that snow. It sure looks pretty but I know it is a pain to drive in.
Good Friday morning to you. I have been crafting away this week and have just falling in love with this sweet Snowman couple that I handmade. They are listed on ebay as a couple. I have one more snowman idea that is churning around in this brain of mine and I hope that I have time to get it done and listed.
I have just let my house go this week and so today is major cleaning day here. I still have 2 or 3 more gifts to get before christmas and I just hate the thougth of having to fight the crowds but it has to be done so I will do it with a smile on my face and hope it goes fast.lol.
I hope your weekend turns out to be a great one and you are all ready for the holiday. Stay safe and warm out there while you travel.
I cant believe how warm this December has been so far. I have seen so many people in shorts and flip flop today. I love it, but it doesn't seem like it should be Christmas soon. I am still holding out hope for a white christmas.
I wanted to let you know that I have listed 2 new Snowman on ebay. Love how they came out. Perfect to sit with your holiday decor or to give as as a gift.
Good Tuesday morning to you. Hope that your staying dry today. It is rainy here today and a perfect day to curl up and read a good book or do come much needed crafting. Which is what I have been doing. I have listed 2 new items on ebay. A prim snowman and a old Antique strained with Greenery.
I have 2 more snowmen in the works and hope to get them listed in the next few days.
How is your christmas shopping coming along. I am halfway there. I took advantage of some online shopping this year and love it that I don't have to fight the crowds. I still like a few more gifts and some stocking stuffers. Which to me is the hardest to find.
Hope the rest of your week is wonderful and you manage to mark off more of your christmas list.
Well it has been kind of rainy and dark and cloudy here today, so I stayed inside and finished this American Primitive Snowman. Just love how he came out. I have listed him on ebay if you would like to take a look.
I have been carless for nearly 2 months. My car has been in and out of the shop for that long. Hoping that tonight is the night that it is fixed and I can get back to my normal routine. Hubby and I have been having to share his truck and it hasn't been easy. We have come to the conclusion if this doesnt fix it when we are in the market for a new vehicle. YEAH.
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you and your family have a wonderful fun and food filled day. May all the wonderful memories that your making today be stored in your mind for years to come.
God has richly blessed me and my family and I am so blessed. I hope that where ever you are and how ever your celebrating Thanksgiving that you will reflect on all the things that your have and that your thankful for and thank God for those blessing.
It is a beautiful day here, the sun is shining and I believe after thanksgiving dinner a nap may be in order.lol.
If you shop tomorrow for black friday, I hope that you find some wonderful goodies and be safe.

Well believe it or not I am still alive. I am enjoying every minute that I am spending at home. I am crafting away here at home. The summer garden has come and went and I enjoyed canning every last bit of it. Looking forward to next years garden.
I thought I would show you some of my crafting goodies that I have been working on .
I hope to have more time to post and share more of my goodies. Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather.
I can't believe how busy I have been since I quit my job. I didn't realize how much I had failed to get done. But I am loving every minute of my time.
I have had some health problems that I am trying to get resolved and hopefully soon I will feel like my old self again. I have only enjoyed one day sitting out on my porch and getting to read, but hope that I can get everything done soon and have more time to enjoy some books that I have picked out to read.
Our garden is doing just wonderful. We have enjoyed squash and some green tomatoes that I fried up, Yuuuuummmmy. Even made a squash casserole the other night and it was delicious.
Our garden in full view
Our Green bean blooms
This is Bo, our sweet Yorkie. He came to us not by chose, but because of necessity. Our son's girlfriend bought him for her but her parents refuse to allow him in their house. So we have gain a Yorkie for now. He is just precious and we love him to pieces, but hopefully soon he will go back to his owner. I love dogs but not a fan of having them in my house. But for now he is getting Spoiled beyond believe. Lolo.
Well didn't mean to overload you will pictures. But wanted to share how our garden is coming along and our newest house guest.
Well I guess you thought I wasn't going to post again. Have to say that things have been busy around here. We are in summer mode here. Our garden is doing wonderful.
I have wonderful news in that this Friday is my last day at my current job. I am going to be a full time stay at home mom again and I am just thrilled about this. I so look forward to spend the summer with my daughter and my mom. My mom has plans already in the works for us and I am excited about that. I have plans for me and my daughter. I look forward to those as well.
I love beeing a stay at home mom. I love keeping house and been there for my kids, altho one is grown up and I only have one that needs me and she is started high school and don't think she needs her mom as much theses days but that won't stop this mom for hanging in there and doing what ever I can to spend time with her.
I also plan on doing alot of blog post and posting more pictures. More so just for me and so that I can have the memories.
I hope to post some garden picture tomorrow and show how things are going along with that.
I got a new Camera for my birthday back in March. I was one happy momma. I have been wanting one of these Cannon camera for awhile and kept hinting to hubby that I really needed one. ha ha.
So he was so sweet and took my hint and got me the camera. I LOVE IT. It takes beautiful pictures. I want to get another lens to go with it but for now I am just learning to use it. I wanted to share with you some pictures I have taken.
Sorry for all the pictures. I will most likely put them in 2 post so it will not be so many on one post.
Why are you taken my picture?
My parents Sweet Horse. He just had to pose to have his picture taken.
A beautiful orange Rose
Our Sweet Zoey when she was a pup
Hubby and I at Easter.
Well I won't bore you with any more right now,lolo. I am still in the process of learn this camera and hope to be able to take better pictures soon. I figure the more I take the better I get.
Hope your staying dry where your at. We have had rain all day here. Just perfect because I got my garden planted Saturday and hoping that it will help it come it faster.
I saw this saying on pinterest and just had to post. This saying really hit home with me especially after this week. I hope that if your having struggles in your life that you will stop worrying and turn it over to God and trust him. He will carry you thru the storms.
Well, been a few days since I have peeped in and said Hello. I hope this fines each and everyone of you doing great. We had a wonderful and relaxing Easter. Since my kids are older we didn't dye or hunt eggs this year. I did miss it. I miss taking their sweet pictures of them dying the eggs and the look on their face when they found a egg hidden in a secret place. So sweet.
The weather the last few day has been cooler. I the low 50's and I do not like it one bit. I like the 80's an 90 degree weather. Will be glad when it returns.
Softball is just about finish for the year. I hope to have more time to be able to post here and I am excited about planting flowers and planting in our garden.
Well I figure the time would get away from me before I knew it. Here it is April and I am just getting around to posting. I have been sitting at softball fields everynight for the last 2 months. My daughter plays for the school team and loves it. I love it to but to be honest I am so behind on house work and laundry and spring cleaning that I am not sure that I will ever catch up.
In my last post I remember telling you that we were headed up to Fall Creek Falls for our Anniversary. We went and it was a beautiful place. We really did enjoy our stay.
Fall Creek Falls was just beautiful. The Falls were so pretty. Altho this lady is out of shape, it did take me awhile to get down to the bottom of the falls and getting back up to the top was three times as hard as getting back up to the top.
Above is some pictures of my daughter playing softball. She has gotten really good at bunting and I just snap the picture above at the perfect time. We have 6 more days and 1 more tournament to go to and this years softball will be winding down. We will miss it but we are looking forward to some rest and also looking forward to attending some softball camps this summer.
I hope everyone is enjoying these beautiful spring days. Easter is just about here and I hope that you enjoy hunting eggs with your kiddos. We will be enjoying worshipping God Sunday morning , then we will be eating lunch with family sunday evening. Our kids are older now and don't care to hunt eggs anymore so if you stilll have young kids, be sure and enjoy those times when they are young. They grow up so fast.
March is here already. I love it when the time changes and it stays daylight outside longer. It makes me glad inside and out. I am just a much happier person.
I am excited. We are headed up to Fall Creek Falls this month for our Anniversary. I have never been and I am looking forward to it. I love it when hubby and I can get away, just a few day to ourself.
Here are a few pictures of Fall creek falls that I thought I would share with you from there website.
Beautiful , beautiful place. Can't wait to go and check out the beautiful falls and the hiking trails.
March has got her before I know it. My daughter it is full swing with Softball. She is loving every minute of it and we are enjoy watching her. Every weekend and some weekdays are all at the parks and fields. Wouldnt have it any other way.
I hope your have a wonderful week and enjoying this beautiful weather. Or I hope the weather is beautiful where your at. Today, the temperature here was 68 degrees. I wish winter was like that all the time. I think I would take that.lol.
Funny how time gets away from you. My goal this year was to atleast post once or twice a week to my blog and keep it updated and so far I have failed at doing that.
What has been going on with the Fullers this year. Well life in general is busy. Work for one thing and then it is softball season and my daughter has made the JV team again this year and she is loving ever minute of it.
Monday night it is meet the team night and then they are going to play a game against each other. Should be interesting to see. Last year was interesting, in that the parents would get so mad at these kids out there playing and would just scream and hollow at them. It was just awlful. Then there would be grandparents or relatives that would scream and talk about other kids on the team while they were up there playing. Other parents would have to bite their tongue or if they didn't there would be words exchange between these people. So when I say it should be a interesting season. It really should be.
My son is starting a new job in a few weeks. He hopefully will be finish with college in about a year and half and then can get a job in the field that he is going to college for. The job he is taking now is just a part time job. One to give him money and to help with gas and for him to spend on his girlfriend.
My sweet and wonderful husband and I will celebrate our 23 wedding anniversay next month. We are going to go out of town for a few days while my parents come and stay here with the kids. Altho they think they are to old to have someone stay with them, but mom put her foot down and said I don't want you along and I need someone to be sure and cook meals for you. So my sweet mom is coming to fill in for me.
We have acquired a new dog. A very loveable yellow lab puppy. She is just precious. Her name is Zoey. We put up an invisible fence in our back yard even tho we have a wood fence all the way around our back yard. Our last dog, sweet bandit, got out and got run over by a car and killed. We didn't want this for our sweet Zoey. So we installed the invisible fence and it is working perfect. She knows her bounderys and if she trys to go beyond that she will know that she can't. She has a 1/2 acre to run. So plenty of room to run and play.
Well I think that catches up on our live so far. I will try to do better at updating my blog. Can't believe that it is nearly the end of February already. Unbelieveable.
Hello and thank you for stopping by my Crafting blog. I have made Primitive Crafts for several years. Crafting is a relaxing time for me and I enjoy every minute of it.

If you have any questions about any of my crafts, please feel free to email me. If you would like something in a different color I would be happy to work with you. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you add me to your favorites.
