I have the most wonderful hubby in the world. A year ago we moved to BC so we could be close to our granddaughter Madilyn. We bought a mobile home that desperately needed repairs. This isn't the first time we have lived in the middle of renovations, however, being close to Madilyn makes it all worthwhile! Well, my hubby has worked very hard this summer building me the most beautiful bathroom...and surprised me when he told me he was adding a sewing area to our bedroom. So, I am just one happy grandma, feeling very blessed in so very many ways. I finished decorating the bathroom with odds and ends that I found at Michael's 70% of sale. I love the colour orange...I find it very warm and comforting. And on Saturday, I had a gal come and help me organize my little sewing space...so I thought I would just show it too you. I am just so proud of Carl...he dreamed this all up in his head, and created it all by his lonesome...so, look away...and enjoy...I sure am!!!

I love crafting...and if you do as well, I would like to suggest that you go to
www.createaprim.com here you will find tons of tips, tutorials, ideas, friends, and even a place to shop if you wish. You can even find some of my patterns there under my name A Primitive Piece of Mine. I just love the owner of the site 'Kristal Norton'. She is a stay at home mom and has done some amazing things to raise awareness about the world of primitive crafting...She also makes and sells her own amazing crafts!
In Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving this past Monday. I think it is important to remember to be thankful every day of the year for the many blessings that we have in our lives. One of my special blessings has been my granddaughter Madilyn. She loves unconditionally, finds joy in the simplest things, and reminds me to stop and smell the flowers! I treasure our story times, our tea parties and our walks on the beach. I am especially thankful for her mommy and daddy who are raising her to be the wonderful little girl that she is, and who are so willing to share her with all her grandmas and grandpas. Thanks Sarah and Aaron, xoxoxo

Today I would like to share one of my favorite spots
This is a place I go to many times. There is so much to be found here from ideas to tips and techniques, there are forums and even a place to shop. Kristal Norton created this site a few years back. She is a stay at home mom, and a wonderful prim artist herself.
Have fun on your trip to create a prim...
