My name is Pat. I am a WAHM of four, Grandmother of two.
Our family lives on a Farm/ Nursery in South Jersey.
I have been crafting, sewing, and doing needlework for many years. I did my first craft show 16 years ago. I continue to sell my crafts in local shops, on eBay, Etsy, the Handdid Market, and my website, www.ahlcoopedup.com.
I offer handmade Raggedies, ornies, door greeters, shelf sitters, gatherings, and many seasonal Prim/Country items. Snowmen will always be my favorite!
Thanks for stopping by.
I finished 8 of these today. This is the basic finished boot, with three large rusty bells and moss.
I added preserved sweet annie in two colors. Then, I put in some faux bittersweet with dried moss and a tea light.Please let me know what you think, I am always up for criticism.
I couldn't help myself with that title. Tee-Hee!!
I had eight witch boots drying on the picnic table, and had to take a picture. Sid kitty is chill'in out in the background. I making bats for the tops. I want them to look as if they are flying out of the Old Hags boot.
I think I'll add some preserved sweet annie, and harvest color pip berries, with some moss. A tea light would be cute too. Oh boy, what will I do with them? I'll post the finished product.
I need to join the rest of you bloggers and have a giveaway. Maybe a boot will be the prize. Stay tuned.
Here I go again, I had to make for pumpkins. I just can't seem to quit! I decided that this was it, except the little pumpkin pie that my newest scarecrow holds. I'll have him done this weekend, then it's on to Snowmen. I can't wait, snowmen and Christmas items are my favorite.
I finished up eight sets of these ornies yesterday too. They are listed on my etsy and website.
Have a wonderful, productive, and safe weekend everyone.
I was asked to do a custom order for a Prim Bride and Groom Raggedy pair. When I started looking for patterns on the internet to get some ideas, I couldn't find much of anything. I decided to go it alone. I sent the customer several pictures of doll types, and she picked the round head doll. I used a pattern by Raggedy Pants to make the doll bodies, but that's where it ended. The clothing etc. all came out of my imagination.
Needless to say, I'm proud and happy how they turned out. I gave them brown hair to match the Bride and Groom. I hope Julia and Jason like them as much as I do!
I thought I would post pictures of my new ghost. He's made from a pattern by Raven's Haven.
I had some black wreaths that I got last year on clearance at Michaels. I decided to put Duncan in some of them too. Everyone is always looking for doorhangers. I have three doors that I try to decorate at all times.
This is an awsome design by my primitive saltbox. I just finished 3 sets. I just love how they turned out.
Find them on etsy and my website.
Have a great weekend everyone out there in blog land. I'm entertaining tomorrow. Friends are coming over for blueclaw crabs, Jersey corn, Jersey tomatoes, and fresh Blueberry cobbler from, you guessed it! Jersey Blueberries.
I just finished six sets of these witch hat spell boxes. Several are listed on my website and Etsy shop. I used a pattern by Homespun Hugs and Calico Kisses to make them.
I have my nose to the crafting grind. I'm almost finished with three sets of three pumpkins, and three witch stockings. Hopefully I can get them done today, and post pictures soon.
That darn cat! I knew something looked odd. It took me a while, but I realized he didn't get his wire whiskers put on. I need to concentrate on finishing one project at a time not 4!
Here's the latest shot of him.
Good Morning. I was busy this past weekend crafting. It seems I'm on a bit of a kitty kick.
Here are my two latest creations. I hope to post some more later this week. This was made w/a Sweet Meadows farm pattern. I added the sculpted feet. I just love them!
He is for sale for 39.95 plus ship. I'm putting him on Etsy later tonight.
I made Peek a Boo Kitty using a Homespun Hugs and Calico Kisses Pattern. He is $24.95 plus ship.
