WINNER!! WINNER!! and Some Special Announcements

Congratulations to Gill who won the Giveaway for the two delightful Craft Tree books and the door organizer that I made.

If you will email me your address, I will get these in the mail to you ASAP.
Now, on to some special announcements - at least, special to me.  I would like to let you know what is going on at my home for the next couple of months.  So, if you think I am going crazy, you'll know why, OK?
When we took our two precious granddaughters to raise many, many years ago, I decided that they needed a playhouse.  You know, I was thinking of a small, little playhouse.  But, not Poppy!!  He had this storage building built (12' x 24') so that they would really have a playhouse!
We got kitchen cabinets, it was wired and had a ceiling fan, lights, telephone and all of the necessities of modern life.  We got a stove top and microwave and took all of the innards out so they had the real thing.  They had wallpaper, curtains, a table and chairs and a daybed.  So, you can see, it was a nice little playhouse.
You can see that the door I painted was a Mary Englebreit design and it was time to change it.
Years pass and the girls are grown and I decided I would make myself a workshop out of it.  It had steps at one time but they had rotten out and we just had pallets there.  So, we are building a porch and using some things that I've gathered in the past.
Also, I need a place to store my inventory (I'm sure that's not a surprise to you).
Remember this monstrosity?
Some posts I picked up along the way......
While it is taking a little longer than I thought, Laynee has thoroughly enjoyed being outside and playing.  Her favorite thing was playing in a 5 gallon bucket!
She thought that was great fun.  That with a tent, blowing bubbles, sidewalk chalk and playing ball with Bella.
Don't you wish you'd fit inside a 5 gallon bucket? 
I do!!
OK, so besides that, I am getting ready to start on my kitchen, (which I am doing most of the work myself), I am working on making 30 some new Christmas items for my Etsy shop's Christmas in July sale, making new items for my Etsy shop and then......
The last week of June and the first week of July, my sister and I are going on a cruise to Alaska.  I am so excited! We will spend several days in Seattle before the cruise.  I have never been either place.
So, if I seem a little disorganized or dingy - just say OK!
Till next time, Judy


  1. Judy! Please let me know when you and your sister are going to be in Juneau! I can pick you up and give you a personalized tour. I would love to meet you!

  2. Love the playhouse and that door is wonderful! I can't wait to see photos and hear about your cruise to Alaska. On my bucket list. xo

  3. Laynee is absolutely adorable! You are going to be very busy, Judy. Have fun! Nellie

  4. Judy so much fun and exciting things going on! Busy Lady!!

  5. When you take on a project or two, you think BIG! Good luck and have fun!

  6. Love the playhouse Judy...Your grandkids are so precious.. and yes I wish I fit in a bucket like that..

  7. Congrat's to Gill! Wow, you are going to be one busy lady for the next few months. Laynee is so cute~ isn't just like kiddo's to play with the box or bucket. :-) Have a great week!

  8. Wow! With all that going on, you're going to need a cruise just to maintain sanity. Good luck!

  9. Hard to believe even a child her age fits in there. But then children just sort of fold themselves up, don't they?

  10. Can't wait to see what you do with this! What fun!

    And that little one in that bucket... major cuteness!



  11. You sound happy, and blissful.

    What a lot of fun things going on.

    I can't wait to see the studio.


  12. Sounds like you have a lot of fun things going on! I've been to Seattle (great city), but never on a cruise!

  13. I look forward to seeing the creativity that goes into making this playhouse into your studio. What a fun play you made for the little girls to play in. I would love to do something like that for our grands.
    Best wishes as you tackle the huge job ahead of you.

  14. Thanks Judy!
    I love the pictures of Laynee in a bucket!!

  15. Lordy Lordy! You ARE a busy busy gal. First congratulations are getting to go on a cruise to Alaska. That will be a wonderful treat. I've never been there or even on a cruise ship. I like the idea of you turning the kids olf playhouse into your studio. That makes perfect sense. You will have lots to share with all of your happenings around there!

  16. Why my playhouse?? Why not your storage shed???

  17. Love the play house and the sweet little girl inside the bucket.

    Your Granddaughter of course sure looks like you. Has anyone mentioned that.
