The view from my craft room window

I live in an old farm house and it has many, many things that I don't like about it and I wish I lived in a new home.  There is one thing that I absolutely love about this house though.. it's my craft room, especially the view from my craft room window.  It's a huge double window and I get to see deer walk by, and even a coyote once!!  No matter what season, if I am sitting at my desk working away or stressing over my next deadline, I just have to stop and look out my window and everything is ok.  If we ever do move, this is the one thing I will miss the most.  I live in Western PA .  We are in the middle of 180 acres, you cannot see our neighbors just lots of trees and wildlife.  This morning I woke up and we had a little snow over night and everything looked so pretty I had to take some pictures of it and share.  This pic is what I see outside my craft room.

This is a picture of our road in front of our house.

Ok, now back to work!!
Have a great day!

Bare walls?

If you are like me, you are anxious to put your Christmas decorations up the day after Thanksgiving but you are ready to take them down the day after Christmas!  The only thing is, everything looks so bare.  I bought a vinyl lettering machine a year ago.  I originally bought it to help me make my wooden signs, but after I saw vinyl lettering used on a wall, I was sold!  I live in an old farm house so there is lots of space!  I have a couple of walls that I have put vinyl lettering on and it gives the room a ''finished'' look.  Here is one that I put  in my kitchen.

This one is in my downstairs bathroom.
You can really get creative with the lettering.  You can personalize your kids rooms or put a saying above a group of family pictures.  At  Crafts By Jodi we can do custom orders.  They are easy to apply and easy to remove.  I had been trying several different fonts and got a little carried away on my walls!  I was able to remove them with a pair of tweezers with no problem. They look like you spent hours stenciling.  Do NOT apply to newly painted walls.  You should wait at least one month after painting to apply the vinyl lettering.  If you have any questions email us . 

Happy New Years!

New look

Hello, I finally changed my blog. I have been so busy with the craft shows, etc. I decided to wait to jump in and switch over to Blogger. I have had several people say it is user friendly, so that is for me!

I have been working on several things, all at the same time of course! I jump around a lot! I have noticed that the fabric crafts have been catching my attention more lately. I'm sure I will switch back to wood again. I have also had several orders for vinyl lettering.

I have also made a couple of raggy quilts.  I will be posting pictures as soon as the holidays are over.  I need to get started on my inventory for my shows next year.  Yes, my mom and I start early!  We try to start as soon as we finish our last show in October.  Our first show next year isn't until September but it takes that long to get enough items ready and we still run out every year!  That is a good thing! 

Enjoy your holidays!
