Grow Your Blog

 Hi everyone!!  My name is Cindi and I live in Northwest New Jersey.

                  I am fairly new at blogging and am thrilled to be able to participate for the first time in the

 2015 Grow Your Blog party!!

 I feel it is a way for me to connect with people all over the world that otherwise I would never meet.  The potential to learn something new through this opportunity is one in a million.

At a very young age, I realized the thrill I experienced when creating.   At 10 yrs I was introduced to a sewing machine and fell in love.  In Junior High School while the others were struggling with a simple apron, I was tackling a lined vest and skirt.

  I am the happiest sitting at my machine, which sets in my grandmothers treadle cabinet.

I am fortunate that I work out of my house and sell online what I create.   Here is a sample of what I have made.

I belong to an Etsy team called Folkart and Primitives, which covers a broad spectrum of art.

I am offering a GIVEAWAY for the Blog Party !

This little prim Peep is made from Warm n Natural, stuffed and nicely weighted.  He was then painted, stained and baked.   Is he not the cutest?

To be entered, please leave a comment below and make sure I have a way of contacting you.   I would also love to have you follow my blog, but it is not a requirement.   If you do follow me, I will return the follow.  :)

Good Luck to everyone, it was so nice of you to stop in  :)

Its GIVEAWAY time !

**Our FIRST giveaway of 2015**

The weather today in Northwestern New Jersey is ICE !

I stepped outside to get the morning newspaper and our driveway is a sheet of ice.

Forecast was for it to start with snow and then turn over to sleet and freezing rain.  
I guess Mother Nature had different ideas.   Days like today, I am so grateful that I am now able to work out of my house. 

To kick off 2015 I would like to do a giveaway here on my blog.

This is our popular Winged Heart.  The wing span is approximately 10.5"  wide.   There is a country air to this design.  It is suitable for hanging outdoors as long as it is in a protected area.

Its hard to believe we are now writing 2015. many of us actually write now a days? 
Time moves on and we can not stop it nor can we stop the changes.  The best is not to fight it, just go with the flow.

I have been doing quite a bit of reading lately dealing with Social Media, there are predictions out there that shocked me.   I usually do not believe the first article I read on a specific topic and I investigate further.  It will be interesting for sure, to see if things will come to pass as predicted.

Moving right along, I will share with you some of my new creations, that are for sale in my Etsy shop

This beautiful heart door or wall hanging

Or how about a Winged Heart?

possibly a heart with a little bird sitting on top?

and finally, a hand cut wood heart

I hope you take a few minutes and browse my offerings.

My wish for everyone is to have a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!
