Trying something new!

Hi! Have you ever tried something that you thought would be sooo easy and found out it was very hard? Well that's what I did recently. If I haven't mentioned it before I'm in this wonderful ebay group, the Olde Primitive Sisters Group and we recently had a challenge to make something ugly. Now I thought that should be very easy, how hard can ugly be? Well, I found out I can't do ugly! I did a teddy bear out of terry cloth, grunged it and sewed it and ended up with something that looks like an alien bear! LOL You can see my alien bear below. We are going to vote for the ugliest doll but boy is that going to be hard because everyone did such a great job! If you would like to see for yourself, Sunday some if not all are going to be listed on ebay just put in OPSG UX (the UX is for ugly extremes lol).

I must go for now, my grandson is here for the weekend and has been on the other computer playing cartoon games for awhile and it is time to go outside and get some sunshine. You all have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to check me out on etsy and my primitive sisters shop! Thanks!

Finally back to work....

Well I am finally getting a chance to sit down and write a little bit! I've been pretty busy working with my 2 sisters on a surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party for our parents. We have a brother but he lives out-of-state so all he contributed was his money! : ) It was this past Sat. the 5th at my house, boy did we have a house full! As it turned out my mother spoke to a friend about their 50th coming up and the friend said "yes, I got an invitation!" and another friend asked my mother for directions to my house!! Needless to say my parents knew something was planned but not to what extent so they were still surprised and everyone had a great time.

I have fallen behind in my crafting with planning the party. I am now working on 2 Annies and hope to get them finished and listed somewhere by this weekend. I'm very pleased with them so far, they are soooo cute with their little pinafores! As soon as they are finished I'll post a picture so keep checking back!

Before I close I want to mention my Old Primitive Sisters Group "sisters," they are the best! They have inspired me to step outside my comfort zone in many ways, one being this blog. I want to thank Bebe for designing the template for my blog and store. Please check out her site at Also make sure you check out our new marketplace at! There is so much talent within this group and this is where you can go to see all their wonderful items. Make this the first place you go when you need a "special" gift, you won't be disappointed! Don't forget to look for me, PrimsNmore there!

God Bless!
