Fun with freebie toys

I discovered a wonderfully fun website recently and want to share the site with everyone.  The Toymaker, offers free downloads of three dimensional paper creations for you to make as decoration and fun. Child friendly with adult assistance.  I'm running out of toner I'm having such a good time.  Give it a try and let me know what you made!

Today is life-the only life you are sure of.
Make the most of today. Get interested in something.
Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby.
Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you.
Live today with gusto. ~ Dale Carnegie

Poppy's Creator has an announcement!

Congratulations to Kit Chase the wonderful artist who shared her talent and her Pearly turned Poppy with me.  Kit has just signed a three book deal with Putnam Books for stories based on the characters in her art work.  Make sure to check Kit's work at very soon.  A book deal makes her art much more valuable and well worth the investment.  I adore everything she does and look forward to being the first to purchase her first book.   Way to go, Kit!
Be sure to visit Kit's blog she's got a terrific giveaway going!

Time to check the shop

It's time to check my shop on Etsy.  I'll begin adding Christmas ornaments very soon.

I finally did it!

I just listed my first item on Etsy.  It wasn't so difficult I was just exceptionally adept at forgetting to hit finish in order to complete the listing.  Two hours later the first item is finally listed.  Plenty more to come!
