My Muse

I've finally found a use for the stuffed animals that are taking over our home. When I need a bit of inspiration, I think I'll pick through the plushie pile and select a critter to be my model. It actually took me 4 tries to get this beaded beagle just right. My 3 failed pieces are hanging on my children's backpacks & bags - where all rejects go. Yes, they have quite a collection.…

Making it in the Mountains!

 I wonder if people realize what a privilege it is to live in the Appalachian Mountains? To be able to walk out on the porch in the morning and see the sunrise, hear the birds sing as I watch them build a nest under the eave of my porch. it is truly Gods Country. Where we all know our neighbors and "having fun" means getting out in the woods or building a bonfire after dark and gathering around it to reminisce about the 'old days".

Last Thursday, April 11th, Bentley passed quickly and peacefully over rainbow bridge.  Our…

Customer Service Is Critical!

One thing I always wanted to ensure we did with our business was to make the shopping experience personal.  And one of the things I chose to do to implement this was to email everyone who ordered from us to 1) thank them again for their order; 2) ensure they received their order (and USPS didn’t leave any of their trademark rips/tears, etc.) and 3) were completely satisfied with the finished product.  By taking the time to do this, it does several things, but most importantly it:…
