Good Afternoon friends, Someone pinch me, will ya....to see if I'm dreaming or what????I think I have died and gone to prim heaven here....lol OK, OK let me explain. I recently signed up for a swap that Tammy from "A Primitive Place" http://aprimitiveplace.blogspot.com/ was hosting. It was called "This Is So Me, This Is So You". We were required to make two items, one that represented ourselves and one that represented our swap partner, and anything else that we wanted to add. My swap partner was my new friend Marie, from "Primitives by Olde Lady Morgan". http://primitivesbyoldeladymorgan.blogspot.com/ . I have to share how she spoiled me rotten here and how she got me right down to a tee with her creations. I told Marie in our writing back and fourth and in our learning about each others likes and dislikes,that I had a secret passion for Shabby Cottage Chic, which by the way is what my bedroom is done in. Well today when I received my swap box of goodies......I was in AHhhhh when I opened up my box! I thought I died and gone to prim heaven!! Marie really out did herself with my box of goodies, she really spoiled me here with so many wonderful goodies. LOOK AT ALL WHAT SHE SENT ME! Oh my gosh, I am so in LOVE with everything! Where do I begin.....She made me a set of three cupboard tuck dolls"Shabby Chic" no less, and a wonderful candle mat which she hand stitched "Shabby Chic Gal" on, and then she made me a awesome little box done in shabby fabric(And she did this all for me....just me!)! Oh my and there so much more.....She also made me an awesome Prim Doll, which I love to bits, a wonderful Prim Bunny Girl which is so sweet and then she made me a tea stained doily and also included a wonderful tea light candle.....I can't begin to "THANK YOU ENOUGH, Marie!!! I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! You really have gone out of your way to make this swap special for me and you have captured me to a tee....in all your wonderful Shabby gifts! I also thank you for sharing yourself with me and letting me learn a bit about you and I look forward to learning more in the future.
I also would like to add a special "THANK YOU" to Tammy for hosting such a wonderful swap! I have not only been blessed with having recieved so many wonderful gifts from Marie, but I am also blessed to have been given the opprotunity in making a new friend! Until next time friends........Big Hugs, Mary

I am divorced mom to three wonderful daughters and a Marmmie to three beautiful grandsons.( Thus, the name Marmmies Mammy's and More). I am a self taught artist who has been crafting and sewing since I was a young child. I have also taught, and made ceramics for many years, until I became disabled. I started getting involved in doll making a few years ago when I became disabled, and my last little bird left the nest. When she left, I had a hard time figuring out what "Me Time" was. I quess some might call this "Empty Nest Syndrome". I always knew I had a calling for something, but could never figure out what it was. Then one day after going to a craft show with my oldest daughter, she asked me to try and make her a primitive mammy doll. Needless to say I agreed, and from that day on I have become hooked! All the pieces in my "Me time" puzzle finally fell into place. I now use my talents to bring smiles to others through my creations and my dolls.
