Snow Angel Valentine Tag ending Tonight.............

I painted this tag last night and I will list it on Ebay tomorrow evening at 9:15. She's a winter valentine snow angel assembled hang tag made with a coffee dyed hang tag, acrylic paints, pages from a vintage 1900's book and real german glass glitter. I hand stitched the hearts on with cream colored quilter's thread and the tiny little stars in the sky too.

I also made the curly rusty wire hanger with the jingle bell to hang it with. I just love making these little assembled tags! Hang them from your winter or valentine feather tree to add a little bit of sparkle this winter/valentine's season. =o)

I'll post her link here when she goes on tomorrow! Thanks for looking at my art!

Two of my Favorite Christmas Gifts..........

The most fun gifts to get at Christmastime are the hand made ones........the ones that come from the heart and hands of some of my dearest friends. =o) The first one came to me in the mail from my dear friend Sandy or Sam (Samiamcreations). Her newest passion is these little objet d'art soldered necklaces that I absolutely ADORE and you can find in her etsy shop.........

(Photo altered using Paint Shop Pro)

.......and the second treasured gift came from one of my best friend's JoycEE.....aka Enchanted Productions and was made by another best friend Christy.....aka Ccswhimsies. When Joyce gave my gift to me along with the sweetest hand written card.........all I could do was sob. I had seen this beautiful painting on PfattMarketplace only AFTER it had been purchased by Joyce. I scolded her for scooping it up first! lol So imagine my joy when I opened her package to find inside this sweet little angel staring up at me!!!! =o) I am so blessed to have such sweet and loving friends!!!!!!

I love you girls!!!!

A New Ebay Listing...........

I really had fun making this art tag last evening! The urge to paint just hasn't been around much here lately. Not with the holiday season and all the things that we think we have to get finished......(yet they never all get done). I think we stress out way too much at Christmas! lol

So I got the urge on Christmas night to paint a tag. A snowman mind you......even though we didn't get a white christmas this year. I think my subconscious was speaking to me...............LOL!

I added real fine german glass glitter to her crown but darned if I can ever get that stuff to show up in a picture! I just love her eyes! I have a thing for eyelashes even though they aren't the IN thing right now.

She'd be the perfect addition to someone's winter feather tree. Stop by my auction and take a peek at her if you wish..............

Dear Santa........Define Good

I thought I would share the picture that I made to put in our Christmas cards this year.....LOL Now is that an impish little grin on that face or what? And the saying that I added says it all, Dear Santa......Define Good! Don't you just love the photo programs these days? I added the tinsel garland in her hands, around her neckline and the little tinsel halo around her head. That ornery look is from when I asked her to "Say Cheese!"

I hope you all take tons of pics this Christmas season that will make lasting memories for years to come. They're only little once...........

Happy Holidays!
Love, Lori & Jadyn

Pictures With The Jolly Old Elf...........

This was one of last year's pictures that Becky got of Jadyn checking him out! You can tell that she's not too sure if she really wants to be there or not. She's thinking......who is this guy dressed up like me???? Hahaha!

Pictured above is last year's picture with the Jolly Old Elf. Jadyn was only 9 1/2 months old in this picture.

And here she is this year at age 20 1/2 months. Look at the difference that a whole year makes..........makes me wanna cry! She's growing up so fast! What precious memories these pictures will make!
Last saturday was pictures with Santa day at the cafe and creamery down the street from my shoppe. Our friend Becky Hart of Hart Photography does a wonderful job of taking the kids pictures. She really works with them to make sure this is a pleasant experience for all involved.....LOL! When kids are this age, you never know what kind of reaction they are going to have towards the Jolly Old Elf..........=o) Luckily for us...........Jadyn was not afraid and didn't even cry! Afterwards she told santa in her best 20 month old language what she wanted for Christmas......with some interpretation from Nana of course...LOL! She told him that she wanted a baby, a stroller and anything Blue's Clues (her favorite show). And after that............I told her she better give Santa a kiss and she leaned forward and kissed him on the cheek! picture of that since Becky was holding Jadyn when she kissed Santa Claus!

Thanks Santa and Thanks Becky!

Love, Jadyn

New Ebay Listing: Snowman Hang Tag

I finally got another tag finished to list on eBay! I love doing these hand hang tags. Instead of the heart in hand, this one is a snowman in apropriate for this time of year, even though all of our snow has melted with the rain. =o( This one has lots of hand stitching with a free form swirl pattern. I also made my own hanger from the twisted rope rusty wire and added a rusty jingle bell. I like to use vintage things on my tags......such as the paper that the hand which is from an early 1900's book and the vintage button which I hand sewed to the cuff. I recycled a Christmas card from last year to use on the wrist cuff and the snowman face. I'm a good one for never throwing anything away that I think I might be able to reuse in my art. Just ask my family........................they call me PACK...........LOL!! Oh well, they just don't "get it"!

Here's the link in case you would like to take a peek at my tag on eBay..............

Last Year's Pfatt Ornie Swap

Pictured above are my Pfatt ornie swaps from last year! I just had to share! From left to right..........1. Gourd santa ornie from Linda (thegourdqueen) 2. Snowman in cone ornie from Kaf (Oldcapeprimitives) 3. Cardinal on snowball ornie from Sharon (Greeneyes) 4. Star ornie and angel tag from Jo (Cartbeforethehorse)

Wasn't I a lucky, lucky girl?????????????????? =o)

It's hard to believe that it's been a whole year since we had the last Pfatt ornie swap already! Where does the time go to anyway? Last year, I made the little pins pictured above and turned them into a tag/ornie. I had so much fun creating them! The pin itself was a round wooden disk which I painted then attached to the coffee dyed tag. Her paper crown was made from the pages of a vintage early 1900's book. Her collar and the points of her crown where made using a recycled bracelet of my daughter's. This year's ornie swap kind of snuck up on me and I didn't have time to make any ornies, but I used something else that I had made, which still had a winter theme. I threw in some other goodies for my Pfatt sister's too which I hope they will love...but I can't show them here since they haven't gotten their box yet. Don't want to spoil the surprise! lol Well, I can't anyways since dummy me forgot to take pics before I shipped them to Carol. I cannot WAIT to get mine! And I will make sure to post pics for you all to see!

Jadyn in Charcoal

Ok, I'll just pretend that I sketched her portrait in charcoal........LOL!!! I was just playing around with Paint Shop Pro and seeing what different looks I could create with pictures. My goal one day is to be able to master this complicated thing! lol My friend Sam is sooooooo good at this. Me however............I need ALOT more practice and experimenting! Sounds like a good project for a cold winter day. I know it will be upon us quite soon. I think I'll wait until after the holiday rush though...........LOL!

My little Frosty Guy on Ebay.......=o)

I listed this little guy on Ebay the other day. He's painted on a clay saucer and dusted with real german glass glitter. The glitter, however, would not show up in any of the pics that I took. I just love painting these little snowmen faces! I keep my snowmen up until March! LOL And I always get blamed for the fact that it keeps snowing when I still have my outdoor snowmen up! Hahaha! The neighbors all say, "Lori! Put that snowman AWAY so it will quit snowing!" And it never fails...........we always get a snow in April here in Ohio. Oh...........and I get blamed for that too! LOL!!!
Here's the link if you would care to take a peek at him.......

Warther's Tree Festival Entry from Village Gift Shoppe & Enchanted Productions

I hope that if you live in the area of Tuscarawas County in Ohio that you can stop by the Union Hospital Auxiliary's Tree Festival which is held at Arther's Carvings in Dover,OH. The festival runs from Nov. 10th-18th from 11:00am to 8:00pm daily. Over the years, Warther’s Christmas Tree Festival has raised more than $100,000 for the Union Hospital Auxiliary, which in turn, donates money to Union Hospital for the purchase of patient care equipment. So, if you get a chance to stop over there, please do. The trees will be on sale the entire week and you can also vote on your favorite large and small tree. This is a wonderful way to make a donation to the hospital and get a beautiful tree too!

Our tree features hand made paper moravian stars dipped in wax, moravian candles in little clip on holders, my hand stitched tags and chenille candy canes hung with little rusty wire hangers w/ rusty jingle bells, little rusty stars, a popcorn and berry garland, and my little santa tree topper cone. We painted the grapevine laundry basket black and there is an old tattered lime green and white quilt tucked inside the basket. We also included a bottle of Pines & Pears room spray to make it smell yummy! And oh! I almost forgot! I made the silicone dipped lights dusted with cinnamon............

and then there is the icing on the cake..........Joyce's gorgeous snowgirl sitting in the hand made child's rocker, holding one of our bobbin lights with a silicone star bullb. You should have seen Joycee down on the floor sewing the last finishing touches on her dolly. I should have taken a picture of her! Darn it! Thanks so much for doing this with us Joyce! Your snowgirl just MAKES this tree! Without her, it would be just a poor little lonely tree........................

And if you do happen to stop by..............please vote for our tree! =o)

Hugs! *Lori

Jadyn Halloween 2007

Chicken Little

Last night was Trick or Treat Family Night at New Dawn Health Care Center where my daughter Morgan works. We went her last year when Jadyn was only 8 months old. What a difference a year makes! She was running the halls on her own this year where last year we had to take the stroller in. This is so much fun going here each year and to see the faces of the residents when they see all the children dressed up for Halloween is priceless! Some of them were passing out candy and as we walked by their rooms you could hear them saying "Look at the little chicken! Awwwwww......isn't she cute!" Jadyn would stop and say, "Hi!" and "Bye!" as she left each one, then run to the next door to peak in. She would stop while going down the hall to look down inside her pumpkin bucket to see what all she had in there and to make sure that she hadn't lost any of her candy and treats. They had games to play and she even got a little pumpkin tatoo on her hand. I think it's so wonderful that they do this for the people there! Afterwards we were treated to cider, doughnuts, chips and pretzels in the dining room. All children got a bag of candy and there was costume judging with some of the residents as judges. What a wonderful and safe way to go Trick or Treating!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone! =o)

Fall Has Arrived!

This is the gorgeous view that I had out my window this evening! The sun was setting on this beautiful fall day and the black silohuettes of the trees made it seem even brighter. I just love fall! The leaves are finally starting to fall and you can see them drifting silently to the ground. We've been having unusually warm weather here in Ohio but the nights are starting to turn cool.'s starting to look and feel like fall! =o)

My Halloween Heart in Hand Tag Art

I've had so much fun creating these primitive altered art tags to sell on EBay! I love to give them that time worn weathered look and the hand stitching that I started adding to them is so much fun to do! I use vintage paper from an early 1900's book and vintage style halloween scrapbooking papers to add the details. I also dig into my selection of vintage buttons for embellishments to add that extra special touch and make them more unusual. I hope you enjoy them too! Make sure you check out my auctions on EBay for more OOAK items. =o)*palette

My Little Halloween Cutie!

Here's a pic of my little grandaughter Jadyn that I took in my shoppe and my sweet friend Sam of Samiamcreations altered it and put this adorable little clown outfit on her. I used these as the invitations for our Fall Open House at the shoppe that I co-own. I got so many compliments on how adorable this was! Thank you sweet Sami for doing this for me. I appreciate your talent and friendship sooo much! =o)
