I have been up to my elbows in glue, paper and glitter. Just like when I was a kid. I would get a idea and then the rush began. This week has been wonderful like that. I guess my Angels were working overtime to get my butt moving!LOL

I actually have three ~NEW~ items for A TIME FOR PRIMITIVE.

This will update shortly this evening.

I am off to create more wonderful items for your holiday decorating. In a mood to sew this evening but will have some sculpting and painting to do as well.

Till then kiddies play nice and keep watching for the GIVE AWAY coming Very soon!

Ginger Sugar and spice!

I have been making dolls and doing this kind of work for over 25 yrs. I have made a million dolls and have learned and changed my style a hundred and 20 times. I have made alot of dolls that I like and once in a while I make a doll I love. This doll is by far my favorite for the whole year. Which is so strange if you knew me. I love girly but am not girly. I like pink and white but don't decorate with it. So out of my norm and yet it is that face that captured my heart. She was a special order for a dear customer and I know when she sees her upclose and personal she will love her as much as I do.

The pictures make her look a bit dark but she is a cinnamon brown color like real gingerbread. I used a cookie to match the color.

Each part of her dress was planned very carefully. I thought of ginger bread houses as I made her. The laces are to look like frosting and the sugar tinsil trim was made to look like sugar.

I also made her little wool shoes and a tiny bucket for her candy. Just so durn sweet. Now I am getting in a mood for the Christmas season.

I do hope that you all have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving with your family. I will be enjoying time with family and then celebrate again on Friday when My Jake returns. I think I can suffer through turkey and pumpkin pie twice. LOL YUMM YUMM.

Blessings to you and yours,Pea

Kinda a sad day

Today was the services for My Husband's Uncle Alton. It was a lovely service and was very emotional for me since I had no service for my Dad. He didn't want any services, nothing. So it was a bit of closure for me for both of them. They were very much alike. Loved to hunt, fish, smart as can be and worked very hard all their lives. They would have liked each other very much. Al was a tease. He would get me everytime and it takes alot to make me blush. He knew just how to do that and never figured out how he knew. Loved that onery old man to bits. Hope he knew that.

Well I got a bit of good news today. I am going to the open house I wanted to. It had been cancelled and now it is on again. I am thrilled but back to work for me. Have to have a few new goodies.
Work on my web stuff it is calling me tonight. Best get crackin. OMG time just gets away from me.
Happy NOTE! three more days and My Jake will return home from Overseas! YEH!!! I can NOT wait till I can hug that boy of mine. It has been such a long time. I hope I get to keep him for awhile.
have a wonderful week.


Annie of Blur-Babies has added wonderful new sparkles for your artwork. She has more glitter and colors. Oh you must get some!

I have purchased from many sellers. I must tell you that ANNIE'S GLITTER is the BEST in all the land! Very fine and she ships quick. I will have lots to glitter now!

Speaking of glitter, there is some calling my name in the studio. I will give you a peek in a few days.

Hello Everyone,

I have been busy putting this pattern together. I had so many requests to make this little guy into a pattern from last years creations.(C) 2007/2008 He is so adorable. One of my favorites for sure. I have dedicated this pattern to my Son Jacob and all our Military serving Overseas and here at home. It is what I am thankful for.
I have decided to offer him up as a printed pattern as well as a E pattern. I put that listing on ebay or you can email me ( I will be happy to mail that out on Monday. Of course he will be on patternmart for instant download if you can't wait. LOL

I am working on a few more in the next couple of days so stay tuned. Thank you for being patient with me, all your cards, letters, and emails of support during this trying time.

Have a wonderful weekend

Ebay Listing

Well my friends I am back to work. It is hard but life must go on. I spent the better part of the day writting a pattern. Yes I am working on them and dollies as well. Yesterday I cleaned up the studio just a bit. Still have alot to do in there but it is coming along. I treated myself ( coupon purchase) with a few organizers because I used my 50 % off joann's coupon at Michaels. Tee hee. In case you didn't know they did that. They do and vise versa.

I put this wonderful little vignette on eBay as a BIN with free shipping. I do hope you will take a peek.

Have a wonderful day my friends and I will be back in a few days with new goodies to share.

Pfatt marketplace

I know you all are probably thinking WHAT? she updated this month with her dad just passing?

Yes I did. My dad was the type of man that said; Life must go on. He wouldn't want me to wallow in self pity or be depressed for long. I forced myself to pick up what little of me there was left and get to work. My Dad was one of the hardest working people I ever met and I always wanted to be just like him.

Oh trust me, I am not over this, through this or okay with this pain in anyway shape or form. I am just dealing with it. If that makes any sense at all.

I so appreciate everyones thoughts, prayers, cards, flowers, letters and emails of support. We knew this was coming but it still doesn't make it any less painful when it does. I still cry everyday and probably will for the rest of my life. He was simply put my Hero and that doesn't ever die. He saved me from myself most days but saved me just the same.

So go hug the ones you love, chat about the weather for tomorrow it may all change.

remember pfatt marketplace updates tonight at midnight or a wee bit sooner.:)
