I Cannot Believe.....

that I was once again selected by Early American Life magazine as one of the top 200 craftsmen in America! This will be my 5th year and I couldn't be more thrilled! This is a wonderful period magazine. If you've never seen it, you should check it out online at, ealonline.com or visit your local bookstore for a copy.


Here are the 2 bears that I submitted.


My other fabulous news is that I won a blog drawing! It was from Melissa at "Wings and Paws Whimsies". She gave away a fabulous Easter piece. I never in a million years thought I would win. Melissa's work is top notch. If you have the time, you should check out her blog, http://wingsandpawsprimitives.blogspot.com/ It's not the exact one pictured, but I know it will be wonderful. Of course, I will be posting pics when it arrives in the mail.



Thanks for stopping by....Hugs, Karen :)
