Bloggy Sunshine

The sunshine retreated, the rain moved in, and the glorious fall leaves from my last post met with an early demise.  But even so, I've been warmed with bloggy sunshine the past several days....
You may have read of the Friday night antics shenanigans craft (???) sessions with Lil Raggedy Angie and the Pumpkin Hoarder, Crazy Cat Hoarder, Carmen from Primcats  and how, a few weeks ago, they made these awesome Cans of Crows (a project idea from Pamela at Our Pioneer Homestead in her Halloween Countdown 40 Days of Crafts series....)....


Shameless crow that I am, I begged, wined, whined, and pleaded for a can o' crows.  But The Crazy Cat Lady Carmen said, sorry - they were all spoken for and maybe they'd do up some more later.....

Well, gosh dilly dang, guess what didn't show up on my doorstep but a can o' crows hand-did by the Lil Raggedy and Pumpkin Hoarder Miss Carmen themselves:


Gullible: [guhl-uh-buhl] adjective: easily deceived or cheated.

(Thanks you two wonderfully crazy blog buds....I love ya to pieces...and my can o' crows too!) ;o)

Then...out of the gray (skies haven't been blue here for many days....), I got another jolt of sunshine....


A very special package from a very special lady filled with very special goodies....


Stacy from Stacy Kay Creations sent me an incredible box filled with her wonderful creations....made especially to please a crow....(and they did, they did!!)

An amazing painting Stacy painted just FOR MEE!!!  (Says she's a beginner painter...HA!!):


(I SOOO love this Stacy!!! It's the Crow's Caw!!)

A set of six (!) handmade cards:



The amount of detail on Stacy's cards is amazing....I'm so loving these glitzy crows!!

A framed vintage postcard print with another crow favorite (black Halloween cat!):


The sweetest little stitched "pumpkins" and crow pillow hanger:


PLUS, a teeny, tiny, little, crow pillow magnet, a vintage-style, mixed media, ornie hanger, and the very sweetest handmade card....(sorry, camera batteries were running very, very, lowwwww....but if you look closely, you can see them in that first group picture above....)

Stacy...you're the bestest and one of the dearest souls I've met on this journey....Thank you so very much for your incredible kindnesses....

Stacy has a selling blog, Buttons and Glitter Boutique, an on-line store, The Scrapbooking Cottage, and an Etsy Shop.  She's one amazingly crafty and talented soul and they don't come any sweeter.....
Now back to building that ark.....

what wonderful goodies you got...lucky duckie...and isnt the bloggy world just the best!!!!

Rhissanna said...

You're a very lucky Crow! Such goodies. And I was told the word 'gullible' wasn't in the dictionary.

Yes, I fell for that one. But better to be a crow than a gull, I say!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Dear Robin and all the other crazy Halloween (crow) people out there. I haven't had the chance to visit and I so want to take my time and admire all these beautiful crafts .. I just wanted to say how much I love you blog and the links to the other wonderful brainy fellow crow people out there under assumed names ? LOL
I always wondered why they name a group of crows a"murder of crows" seems a bit harsh .. I would think a "party of crows" would be much better .. in fact a "Halloween Party of Crows" is the best ? LOL
I love the can of crows .. and then all the other treats are too perfect !
I have to come and sit a while here and really enjoy this blog .. then follow the links .. I may grow old doing so but by golly ? I am determined !
WONDERFUL craft crows : )
Joy (way up north in Canada .. we have crows too!) *giggle, snort, giggle*

Linda said...

OK...so you are one lucky gal!! What a ton of wonderful goodies...that can O crows is the cutest thing ever!! And Stacey's cards and treats...wonderful!! I love all the pictures of your Fall trees...so jealous of all that color!! here in my neck of the woods...I am still in shorts and bare feet! Love the new header too!!

Deneen@dreaming-n-color said...

Karen ~ Life In A Primitive English Cottage said...
