Happy Summer!

Hi Everyone,
I have been absent for a know how life gets in the way. We just had a huge Graduation/18th Birthday/Off to College Party for my son and I am so ashamed to say that we did not take one picture :(  We had a blast though! My summer has been so relaxing so far. I am getting the Fall itch to craft especially since I finally go my craft area ready to create. Here are a few pictures

I am really excited to start quilting again. I have been doing some little crafts like knitting a blanket and some small Christmas Ornies but that is it. I wanted to wait until Ryan leaves for college before I really dig back into my business. It is coming so fast and I am going to miss him so much!

I have had a cooking bug lately...My brother has been sending me tons of giant zuccini from him garden along with tons of tomatoes. So of course I HAD to go on Pinterest for some new recipes. I found a Zuccini Tots recipe that is out of this world and Zuccini Fries recipe also. The next one is Slow Roasted is the recipe I found for those I will let you know how this turns out.
Well gotta run, my little angel is sick today and needs so lovin'.
Thanks for reading!

Hi Everyone,

Yes I survived my surgery and learned that I have a very unique heart as well. At first the recovery was slow but now I feel terrific. I had to get the house back in order and buy a new computer but I am SO ready to dive right in. I am currently running a 20% Off special in my Log Cabin Crafters shop. If you have been on the shelf waiting to purchase something, then hurry over and do it because I am only running this special until 6/30/2012.

On a personal note: I am SO excited to say that tomorrow evening I will be watching as my youngest son Ryan, receives his HS diploma...I can remember watching him get a Kindergarten diploma and it seems like yesterday. I am so proud of him and what he has achieved. He is heading to Millersville University in the fall. Here is his handsome face lol I am sure I will be choking down some tears. Now all I have left at home is my little girl (Ava) and she will be attending Kindergarten in the fall.....squeeling with joy at the thought...ha ha ha  Isn't that terrible of me. I adore her, honestly!
Stay tuned as things are starting to get exciting around here....

The Big Day!

To all of my faithful followers I apologize that I have not posted anything in a while. I have been very busy since the move. I have Ava starting school, Ryan graduating school, Ryan's 18th Birthday coming up and then he is off to college. There has been lots of planning going on here. I also made the decision to get my heart surgery done. Tomorrow is the big day! I hope everything goes smooth but there are just in case plans already made :) I have been creating but both of my computers crashed so I am not having an easy time posting pics to my website. When this is all over I will be getting a new computer and I will be up and running again. I just wanted to say Thanks for sticking with me!!

Still here...

Hello Faithful Followers:
 ust checking in to let you know I am still above ground lol  Seriously, the move is still going on...I have been very sick for 2 weeks and trying to decorate is the last thing on my mind as I cough and cough...Then there are the taxes that I was supposed to have done last week but where did I put that paperwork...geez not funny either. The house is coming along and everyone is very happy to have the extra room and 3 plus acres. So I will share the good and the bad with you through these pictures lol'

Mismatched Living room

Dining room and Ava

Place where everything without a place goes

My creative space needs major attention :(

So you can see why I have not been posting...lots to do. I just want to quilt but from the looks of that room, it is going to take a while.
In case I do not get to post again...I am wishing you all a Very Happy Easter with lots of love, hugs, family and maybe even some jelly beans :)

Lookin' for some Blogger Love...

Hi Friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful day. It's almost the weekend...Yay!!! So the reason for the title is this...I really need some help with organizing these fabrics. If you have a method that works for you, please leave me a comment and tell me what it is. I have most of them by color but what to do with the multi-colored fabrics. I was thinking maybe organizing them by the larger or background color???
Any who....I am listing more products on today. I am having lots of fun with these Paper Cake boxes. Here is a new one that I am listing today:
I also made a few new Heart Bowl Fillers. I personalize these too...aren't they cute???
And last but not least my new Rag Rug. It is all Homespun fabric. It is going to be a lot bigger than I had planned on but it's ok!
This is such an easy project to do and it keeps my hands busy while watching TV...yeah like I get to do that! Well, I do but it is Nick Jr. all day....yes I know don't be jealous! lol
Thanks again for reading and have a great day!

Me and the Princess spent the morning creating cards for Daddy and her brothers, then the REAL mess started lol We made Cheesecake stuffed Strawberries dipped in chocolate...Yummy.

What do you think?? Like? I do! Perfect for Holiday decorating too..

Hello Everyone,
I have been one busy lady lately! I woke up one day and just couldn't stand looking at all of the storage containers of fabric that I have. Honestly, they were messy too. Fabric just squished down into them. I had been Blog Stalking late at night (something I do very often) and saw an idea for organizing fabric using comic book boards. You roll your fabric around these boards to make mini bolts. So I ordered them and got started. This was no small took me an entire week. Of course what takes me a week, would take someone else a day or two at the most. I only get a few minutes here or there to myself. Here are some pictures of what I did:

When I am finished it is going to look like my own little Quilt Shop :)  While I was rolling the bolts, I was also folding and stacking  my fat quarters. Well now what am I going to do with all of these, I thought to myself. So I went to Target and looked at some storage ideas and found this, and filled it...
They are not really organized my color as I would like but I did it in a few minutes with the little Princess helping (shoving them in any where lol). I must admit that I am having trouble with the fabrics that have multi colors..Where do they go? How do I organize them? If you have an idea PLEASE PLEASE leave me a comment.
Have you stroller over to yet? I am still loading products every few days so please visit often and remember to click on the Mailing List button and add your email because when I get all of my products loaded I am going to hold a Grand Re-Opening Sale and do some fun Giveaways and I want you to be the first to know :)
Until next time...Thanks for reading!

We Have Re-Opened!!

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to announce that I have re-opened Log Cabin Crafters web store. Visit us Here. I opened the shop with only a few items but feverishly trying to fill all of my categories. I will have a Grand Re-Opening with special sales and maybe a giveaway. Please head over and add yourself to my Mailing List so you can be sure to get my newsletter and coupons.

I don't know about where you are but I think this is the most mild winter we have ever had. I was actually out at the local playground with my daughter today and it was 60 degrees! I am totally loving it. I am sorry for all of you skiers out there. Today is my 8th Wedding Anniversary and we will be celebrating it this weekend..Yay! We have a babysitter for a change. Not sure what we will do because my poor Hubby is having oral surgery on Saturday so I guess dinner is  Poor guy!

I also wanted to mention that if you like Country/Primitive type crafts then head on over to and go to the community forum and sign up. It is a great place to meet some really nice, creative ladies who like to make new friends and share ideas on decor, crafting etc...Trust me, you will be glad you did.

Well I gotta run for now. The Princess is sleeping and that is when I blog hop...tee hee   That is what I do with my ME time late at night. Enjoy your evening!

Happy 2012 Everyone

Whew, it has been a while. I truly hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday!
I was late getting my Christmas tree up and decorations out this year. It all worked out in the end though. I stress over it all and it falls into place anyway. Here is a picture of my Christmas tree for 2011

This picture really doesn't do it justice but you get the idea. This was my 1st attempt with Deco Mesh. Next years tree will be better. My husband and I snuck away for an evening of fun at his Company Christmas Party...
We went to Christmas Eve service at church and as we walked in a bit late, I was hanging up my coat and looked toward the entrance to the Cathedral and there was Dr. Oz. I was so excited but held it in as I walked past him and his family. I asked a gentlemen if there was anymore seating and he said only in the Chapel on the other side so I walked across with my family to be seated over there. I was surprised when Dr. Oz followed us over there and sat down right in front of me...I spoke to him briefly at the end of the service. That made my evening...I love his show! 
My daughter was thrilled when she came down and saw that Santa had come...The rest of Christmas day was spent putting toys together etc..I hosted my family Christmas dinner later that night and a Dirty Santa Swap as well.
I must admit that I was over joyed to see 2011 go. It was a terrible year for me and my family. I have faith that 2012 is going to be a much better year and it is already looking good for me. I am in the process of  re-opening my store through Prim Mart and it should be up and running within a month. I will also be able to accept credit cards without having to go through Paypal.
Well I believe that is enough babble for one day! Thanks for reading...
