Oh baby, it's cold outside!

Brrr...the thermometer reads 23 degrees on this chilly Sunday morning!  Frost has saturated the grass; the roads are a bit tricky, and so my Prius will stay warm nestled in the least for the day!  So, that must mean that it's time to pull out the winter wardrobe and grab that toasty scarf to snuggle in.  Did you know that Happy Valley Primitives also carries a line of luxuriously soft scarves with the most elegant beaded fringe out there?  I have a small sampling listed in my Etsy shop now with FREE US shipping for a limited time, so if you're in need of a new fresh look, with a little bling...come check me out!

Tagging away!

It's hard to believe that in only two weeks, the Christmas season will be in full swing.  Wow!  Where did the time go?  Just after Thanksgiving marks the opening of one of the biggest holiday draws here in the northwest corner of Washington...The Lights of Christmas (!  This spectacular event draws over 50,000 people and boasts over a million twinkling lights on display, along with festivities, theatre, food, and of course, several gift shops!  Once again, I will have a table full of creations for sale there.  So, while nearly all of my projects are ready, I have taken it upon myself to create new pricing tags this year.  I just love to showcase a beautiful piece of art in my price tags; however, I also want to personalize them.  And, since I'm, ahem...thrifty, I've researched on the net to find printable tags at little or no cost.  There is a large assortment out there!  A couple of my favorite sites are:;; and  Check out these awesome sites for free to low cost printable tags, ornaments, and so much more!
