Silicone Flickering Tealights Now Available!

We've taken our popular gungy tealights and dipped their flickering flames in silicone for that realistic flame look! Primitively imperfect flames add so much more realism!

St. Patrick's Day Mixed Media Altered Art Piece!

This is my first mixed media/altered art piece! I had to get some practice for my upcoming project. It is on a 10" x 10" canvas and has all types of goodies to be found. I hope there is someone out there that will enjoy this piece just as much as I enjoyed making it!

Pattern Addicts ~ Here's a deal for you!

I decided to compile my 2008 pattern collection onto one CD. There are 37 patterns total and range from Snowmen, Witches, Ornies, No Sew Patterns and more.

The auction is on ebay right now with an opening bid of $9.99...the price of only ONE pattern! Even if you already have a few of my 2008 patterns, it's definately a steal to check out this CD. Get it before it's gone!

New Easter/Spring Chick Eggs & Rug plus Easy Shopping!

Good day to everyone! I want to first thank everyone that has voted for Twinkie this week! It means a lot and we are hopeful that he will go onto the semi finals in a few months!

Secondly, I want to point out a new link that is on the right hand "Aunt Mannys Sites" column. "AMC Easy Shopping" is a one page shopping site for our items. Same products that you will find on our website but everything is all on one page and it is strictly products, no extra jabbering. So you can get straight to buying! We have got our websets and etsy banners added in the graphics section but still need to finish adding all of the auction template graphics. Otherwise, it's pretty much finished.

Lastly, I've got a couple of new items finished this week. One is another hooked rug. It's got great Valentine colors but is also wonderful for everyday use as well.

I decided that I was going to make up some St. Paddys Day items and somehow I managed to make chick eggs with feet instead. I have no clue where the road forked on that one but I really think they turned out cute! Zoey calls them Pips instead of Peeps and I called them Cheggs...LOL.

Vintage Scrapbooking Items ~ Frustrating

So I have this project that I want to do. I don't scrapbook but for this project, I will be doing something similar to it. I have been searching for WEEKS now to find just the right items. I have found many items that I would like but they aren't all in the same place. This frustrates me. I'm sure many of you can relate.

When purchasing things, I guess I can get kinda anal. I like to be able to have like a "one stop shopping" place for things that I need. I have not been able to find that with scrapbooking supplies.

I found a retired Karen Foster Heirloom kit that would be perfect but cannot seem to find a site that sells it outside of ebay. I LOVE the Pebbles "Real Life" vintage strips and tags but cant find all of them at the same site and none on ebay.

I will continue my search and if you can help, let me know! It will take me awhile to finish the project but I will certainly post it when I do. Actually I will post "before" and "after" pics for you.

Oh, and I will have a Twinkie update for you all tomorrow and more updates on some other new things to follow as well!

Monday Madness ~ Blizzard, New Item/Pattern, New Location!

Good Monday evenin ya'll! I am feeling a bit better FINALLY! I've been working very hard getting orders out to everyone and have just a few more to finish up this week.

We got a couple of inches of snow today and have more coming tonight. We also have a blizzard warning for tonight and tomorrow with lows below zero and -30 to -40 below with the windchill!!!!! BURRRRRRRR On top of that, we have several more inches of snow coming tomorrow night and into gosh, enough already! LOL

While working on orders, I was able to get a new Valentine item finished and hope to have it posted and listed tomorrow (with a little luck...ok a LOT of luck!). And you know what that item = new pattern! YAY!

Lastly, for all of my PA customers and the surrounding will be able to find some of our products in the cutest little shop there! I'll give you more details on that later though.

I just wanted to check in and touch base to let ya'll know I'm still alive...just buried not only in orders but in snow!!!!

You know...the stuffy sinuses, sore throat, cough, disoriented...ICK! But i think i'm finally starting to come back around after some much needed rest after the holidays!
