A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

Wednesday < June 18, 2008

Where has the time flown too ?? So much has been going on...mainly learning to Blog and getting more items into my Etsy site. I was officially asked into the OFG Old FarmHouse Gathering Team. That is a great bunch of "girls." It can take up alot of time reading and answering the messages. If you have never tried Etsy to purchase items...give it a try. Some wonderful artists are there. Some of my items are on display at end of this blog.
Some words of Wisdom today :

"Only a life for others is a life worth living." Albert Einstein

"Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value." Albert Einstein

Who would have thought these bits of wisdom came from A.E. Very profound, and especially for today. We have become a nation of much decadence and overabundance. So many are too soft. We have had so many comforts that we have become weak in many aspects of our national character.
Hmmm.........just think about it for a minute. ..or better yet....sit and watch some of the banal ,low mentality, garbage on the boob tube and theaters.
Oh well...sorry to have gone there. Been on my mind alot lately.
I volunteer at our local food bank and come away some days with tears. So many hard working citizens and elderly are struggling now. All because of the "greed" by a few in this nation.
Man is never satisfied. Now that is a Proverb from the Bible.
May we reflect on what was and is now and determine what is the best.

Tuesday - June 10- 2006

My of my where does the time fly to!! ??? Can't believe it has been 6 days since last posting.
Lets see, what has been going on. Well for one thing all this flooding in southern/central part of Indiana. My heart breaks and prayers are going up. Just shows man is NOT in control of things. I pray that each person will be intricately aware of God throughout this ordeal.
My sales on Etsy have been increasing. I joined a great group of artists/crafters named OFG thats Old FarmHouse Gathering...and we help each other with ideas. Lately they are trying to come up with ways to promote Etsy outside of Etsy if you get my drift. This is a great place....a whole lot better than eBay...where I was a powerseller for about 7 years. God tired of the bias on eBay. Because I proclaim my Christian Faith, alot was allowed on my feedback at eBay that normally wouldn't be allowed on anyone elses. Now go figure. What is good for the goose is NOT good for the gander so to speak.
Anyway, I love Etsy so far. It is a way for me to have an outlet for all the output of my creativity.
You can see some of my items below.
Today I had another visit with my Rheumatologist. Just the same o same o visit. Just trying to make me comfortable and stop the "flare -up" that causes damage to the joints. Sure didn't think I would be dealing with something like this at 55 !! Have way too many things I want to do.
Today was a little cooler here in Central Indiana PTL !! We went from a cold Spring to instand HEAT overnight....literally !! :)
Well, time to get a few things wrapped up in my studio before heading downstairs.
Have a beautiful evening
God Bless

Wednesday - June 4-2008

Lets see if I can get this corrected from previous attempt. Boy this blogging is interesting and keeps us older gals on our toes so to speak.
My time at Etsy has been short but have not regretted it. The ladies are wonderful. We have so much talent in this group called OFG - Old Farmhouse Gathering. Please check it out by typing in OFG in the search bar at Etsy.

The weather here in Indiana is still precarious. Am praying for no more tornadoes anywhere in the states but guess that is stretching the request...huh....since news stated this is to be one of the most active seasons. Monday I joined our local Garden Club. Will be interesting. I don't have the green thumb as my sister Jo does...but do enjoy the gardens. Have some plants...but it is all trial by error for me. Get excited when something takes and does well. Our Peru Garden Group maintains the refurbished old Train Depot. It is has lovely landscaping. The Train Depot is used now for the Ole Olsen Plays.Well I had better get into my studio and see what else I can create. God Bless

Sunday - June 1- 2008

Can you believe it is June already. Just think we are heading towards July, then when we are in July we will be looking to August..and well...when in August.....our eyes are on the fall. My favorite time of the year.
We had alot of rain, wind and a few tornadoes in Indiana Friday evening. Miami County was blessed not to have a tornado. They passed us and landed in Wabash. I certainly don't want anyone to have to endure the aftermath of a tornado....just glad it wasn't us this time. We had one a few years back. Caused enough trouble.
The rain was plentiful. Definately an asset to our plants.
I am trying to get photos onto my blog. Just went outside and took a pix of the Clematis Vine on our garage..just loaded with beautiful lilac colored blooms. The most in past 4 years.
Please be sure to check out my webpage on Etsy. It is KeepSakeKorner.Etsy.Com. Also, be sure to check out our group of ladies named Old Farmhouse Gathering OFG. Type OFG into search bar on Etsy and see all the goodies by some wonderful artists.
