Fourth Wreath on the Front Page!!!

My fourth wreath to be on the front page! I'm so excited I can't believe it. I couldn't understand why so many hearts all of a sudden and then I went and looked and it was on today. I missed it but I went to the flicker page where you can get the front pages and saw it. I am over the moon right now!!! My question is, if these 4 items have been on the front page and two of them in the gift guide, how come they didn't sell yet? lol. If you click on the picture you will see the front page it was on. wooooo hooooo!!!

Second Item in Gift Guide! Second Item on Front Page!

I made the Front Page in Etsy!!!!

I was on the front page in Etsy and I am soooo excited. The best part is Etsy picked the items and it wasn't from a treasury! I received so many hearts and so many views I was amazed. I also received a lot of item hearts too. My purple rose wreath with the purple humming bird made it!!!!
My new wreath is for the Fall, which will be here before you know it. This will be my last crochet wreath for a while but I'll still be making my cloth wreaths. I need a break from the crochet ones! Fall will be coming quick and I want to start making my Fall items. I love Fall. The smells, the colors, the chilly nights, its great after a very hot summer. Well that's if we ever get a hot summer! Everyone enjoy their summer!
Ok so I love making these wreath. I can't stop myself!!! This one has a little bird on it. Jeeze every time I say it's my last one for now I find more yarn that would make a pretty wreath. Well since I have one more wreath I guess I'll be making one more! Their so much fun to make. This is also a 14" wreath. I love finding little things to put on it, like the little bird on this one! Ok just one more now. (tee hee)

And Then There Were Three.....

Little Crochet Humor!!

Here's a great joke from a good friend of mine! A man and woman had been married for many years. They shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open orask her about.For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover. In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside.She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box.When he opened it, he found two little crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $295,000.He asked her about the contents. "When we were to be married," she said,"my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll."The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with happiness."Honey," he said, "that explains the dolls, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?""Oh," she said, "That's the money I made from selling the rest of the dolls."

Last night my two oldest ladies went to the Father/Daughter Dance. They were so excited and looked so cute! Daddy gave them each wrist corsages (is that spelled correct?)and they matched their dresses. I sprayed them each with a little Vanilla Lace perfume and they loved it!!! They had a date with Daddy!!!! Wait till next year when Daddy has to take 3 of them!!!

Still Learning

Well still learning about this blog stuff. I've been looking at as much blogs as I can and hey all look so neat and orderly. Wonder how to do that? I guess you learn as you go. How do you post about your life when everyone who sees it doesn't know what you're talking about? Hmmm have to look into that. I guess it will all come together in time. Everything is a learning curve. I'm sure I'll get it sooner or later. Just have to research and try different things. Life is learning.

Still Lost

Ok I see I have people following me and I have followed back but to tell the truth I don't know what I am suppose to do! Thank you to the people who left me such nice comments but what to do next. Do I just write every day? Wow it sucks to be this lost. I have tried to visit everyones blogs but again, I get lost. Funny thing is I make web sites and can't catch on with this blog thing. Oh well, I guess a little at a time and learn as you go. Hey you have to try right?

About Me

Febuary 27, 2009 Hi all! My name is Jan and I am making a blog with no idea how to do it!!! I live in RI and right now I am waiting for Spring sooooo bad. I have 4 granddaughters who are the light of my life! I have a shop on Etsy, address is where I sell my cloth wreaths and crochet items. I love to make things like this. I have made so many friends on Etsy and all the people there are so nice that I look forward each day to talking to them. It's so great to be able to get on Etsy and vent whenever you want to and know that people are there to listen or to help you with a crisis. What a great idea Etsy is!
