Happy Saturday!

Good Morning Blogger Friends,

I have finished most of my new signs, and I am really excited!  I have most of them listed and just finishing lisiting the rest of them on Etsy this morning.

Now for the giveaway I said I would have up by Thursday, sorry that I didn't get it up, lots going on around the house and shop.

I am giving away a new sign, the Alaphbet Checkerboard.  The sign measures 12" x
12" and has a Barn Red topcoat.  Stenciling was done in Old Forge Mustard and black.

There are four ways to get an entry:

1.  Be a follower of my blog (if you already are, you are in the drawing)
2.  Post a comment and leave a contact (email, blog, ect)
3.  Post to your blog
4.  Share with friends

I am going to run the giveaway until next Saturday the 20th and it will be the first day of Spring!

Good luck to everyone!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed day :)

Hugs to you all,

I am still busy and loving it!  I have almost all my new signs done and they should be ready for posting later today!!! Yeah!!  

I am going to be having another giveaway on my blog, and I will have the item(s) posted here by Thursday, so please come back to enter...:)

Monday's Market Place Featured Artisian

Good Morning Blogger Friends!

Today for my Old Farmhouse Gathering Monday Market Place Artist, I am featuring Charlene from CatsDesigns.

Charlene has been selling on Etsy since March of 2008 and here is some information she shared:

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
My Etsy shops name is CatsDesigns and I chose it because those are the
    initials in my name and at the time I couldn't 
 think of anything else.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
I joined Etsy in March of 2008.

3. What type of items do you offer?
I offer Prim and Folkart decorations for your home,
 dolls, handbags and jewelry. 

4. How long have you been crafting?
It seems like I've been crafting all my life.
  When I was younger we didn't have a television until
 I was 10 years old,
 so I use to design dresses for my dolls out
 of old clothes.

5. Who or What inspires you?
God inspires me the most by allowing me to do what
 I love to do.
 Also the many pattern designers who come up
 with these fabulous designs.
  Right now I am most inspired by artists like
 Terrye French,
 Renee Mullins and Jamie Mills Price.
  My favorite doll designers are
 Maureen at Sweet Meadows Farm
 and Kat from Kats Country Prims.
6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
It's hard to pick just one item it changes with what
 I'm doing at the time.
  I love painting and sewing for the seasons.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)
