New Blog & Etsy Banner

Mary at Isabella's Closet blog has made mine for years.
I still do not have a clue how to do it myself : (
First I want to learn how to add frames to my photos.
Here is her link to the Marvelous Banners she creates.

The cute happie child's drawing on the right side of my blog is Tommie; the lady that designed and carved my purple bird stamp. She is on maternity leave as her little girl is due this month and she is so excited!!!
This is the banner for my Etsy shop
I ordered a hand carved bird stamp and all of a sudden I want "birds" in my life : )
When it arrives I will blog about it and give you the Etsy shop in my post.
I am taking photos, writing descriptions and just happily busy getting my shop ready to be open with more than a roll of ribbon : )
Have a wonderful evening!!!

    Big hugs,

  5. Carole, we've had a drop out in the Christmas tag swap. Are you still interested with a short deadline? Oct. 15th? I convo'd you details thru your etsy shop. I'm on the way out the door and will check back with you later today.

  6. Oh your car died and you didn't get to attend that doll class!!!! Awww mannnn!!!
    But she sent you one as a very sweet!
    Those other dolls are sooo cute. You are lucky to live in that neighborhood!

  7. Carole, I'm glad to hear that you're back. How I wish I lived down there. I would have picked you up and taken you to that class. If there are any artsy classes here I sure haven't heard about them. I'd love to go to one!

  8. I love the new banner! Thanks so much for visiting me. Fete et Fleur means Celebration and Flowers.
