Blog Award

Tracy of Farm Girl Dreamer was nice enough to present this award to me the other day:

I Love Your Blog award

Thank you so much, Tracy! It was a really nice surprise to receive this award from you. Now I need to pass the award onto 7 other blogs – it is extremely difficult for me to pick just 7 since I have such a long list of favorites, so here are 7 of my favorites at random:

I will have more new creations to share again soon too!  This month I have been busy working on custom orders, goodies for the WSOAPP Halloween swap (my package went out on Friday, I hope my swap partner enjoys it!), and new dolls for the September 7th launch of my WSOAPP shoppe.  I just finished a primitive witch for my shoppe and hope to be able to finish at least one other new doll in time for our grand opening.  Unfortunately I have vacation plans overlapping our launch date, but I will get everything set up before I leave, and respond to any orders/inquiries when I return home on September 11th.

A New Fall Look for WSOAPP

The Whispered Secrets of a Primitive Past (WSOAPP) group that I am a part of has a new fall/Halloween theme on our homepage! Mare and Brenda have done such a great job of making the site look amazing. And I am so honored to have one of my primitive cats featured in the new website banner!

Stay tuned to the WSOAPP homepage, we have some exciting new things in store for everyone starting next month. September 7th will mark the Grand Opening of the group’s Member Shoppes, which will be linked from
