Newletter #1


Hello, my first post in my new blog. So a little about myself - I love crafts and crafting. My favorites are tole/decorative painting, wood working, and making earrings for myself. Right now my friends and I have a "Christmas Craft Store" in the local shopping mall. We have done this for the past 4 years, from Oct/Nov. to sometimes the end of Jan. We call ourselves the "Palette Pals" (we all paint). This year however we have added new friends who crochet, make jewelry, write books, sew and make christmas decorations from glass blocks. I have a web store: http://www.audreyscountrycrafts.etsy.com/.
Check it out!!


I've been busy crafting and setting up a new web shoppe:

  2. Audrey - Love your painted items... each has such personality! My favorite part of our Christmas is sitting down as a family (as we've done for 13 years now!) on Christmas Eve and reading "Twas the Night before Christmas" before the kids go to bed. We all get comfy on the couch in front of the Christmas tree and enjoy the story and sweet pictures!
    Hope you tell us about yours!
