Introducing Angel Abstracts........and a Giveaway!

Hello all! I want to introduce you to some outstanding new artists! At the Cape Girardeau Show in November, I was lucky enough to be in the booth next to a friend of mine, Sherri. Evelyn Barton, Mary Martin and Sherri Bramhall are the artists behind Angel Abstracts. Their new website is up and running and I am SO happy and excited for them! Go take a look! They are SUPER talented! Did I mention that all of these great ladies also have full-time jobs as occupational therapists? I have their Prayer and Praise Booklets and I use their postcards DAILY as thank you cards for my Etsy business.

I am also very happy and excited to say that I working on new jewelry designs for them using their original artwork! How cool is that?

I loved being in the booth next to them in November! Their stories of how their unique artwork was created is FASCINATING! Each person sees something different in the prints. I just LOVE it! Please go and take a look, you will not be disappointed!

Here is the Giveaway information. Go to their website, come back here and post a comment on which item(s) are your favorite, or which print spoke to you the most, and next Monday, January 4th, I will choose a number with one of those random number generators and the winner will get an Assortment Package!!!

Christmas Day Photos

Hello all! Happy 'Day After' Christmas to everyone! I truly hope everyone had a glorious Christmas Day! I just thought I would post some holiday photos from our day. As you can see, the princess dress up costumes that I bought during the last Halloween season was a huge hit! I bought Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, with shoes and crowns........she has not had them off in 2 days! Also, the Bendaroos she SOOOOOO wanted were a HUGE hit from Auntie Vicki, cousin Jordan and Nathan!

There are obviously too many presents to list all that she got, but she loved them all.......it just took ALL day to get them opened. I have to admit, she was not all that interested in the present opening hype.....weird! She was just very ho-hum about the whole day. My husband and I were baffled!

We had a great time at Papa Jim's house on Christmas Eve. Madelyn loves all of her family! She was very happy to see all of her cousins. Her cousin Shayla is 5 months older than her and just celebrated her 4th birthday last Sunday. Madelyn was in the hospital most of last weekend and went to Shayla's party, but truly was not herself.......still recovering I think. So seeing them all a couple of days later, she was back to old self!

Enjoy these photos and I hope you all had a great holiday season! Take care and be safe!

OK! Not much going on here. I am still trying to keep my head above the water with orders! I can confidently say that the first Mad Maggie Designs holiday season has been VERY successful! I can not thank all of my customers enough! THANK YOU ALL!!
My husband has a "home" on MySpace and has been on me to get one up for me and my shop........I know, I know, I know...it is supposed to be a great marketing tool......I just could NOT understand the MySpace thing. Well, I spent a whole lot of time last night getting mine up. So, here it is, very boring, still in the works, but at least with all of the other items on my plate, I did it! http://www.myspace.com/madmaggiedesigns
Please, give me some hints, ideas, critiques, or just plain help on the site! I have got to head out the door and go to the "day" job at the senior center!
Have a great day you all! Take care!

Elizabeth Stone Quote........

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking
outside your body.
