My name is Suzy and I am a primitive folk artist whose first love has become the creation of all things primitive.I just love to create and let my art take on its own personality. I live in Maine with my wonderful husband,Rob,and together we have 4 grown children, 4 grandchildren, and our wonderful youngest son,Ben,who is 10 and very active. However.. he has been known from time to time to be right beside Mom working in the studio!
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day! My heart goes out to all of the military wives whose husbands are deployed and serving our country. It's kind of a bittersweet day for them....looking forward to the day that they come home and can be with their Valentine again. As I was talking to Lynsie on the phone today... she reminded me they had been together for 5 years and only spent one Valentines Day together! So this post is for all of those military wives who give so much of themselves while their husbands are giving to our country! We all wait anxiously for the day that John returns home safely to be with his family again. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless you! Until next time, Suzy
There's a storm coming our way... and Miss Emme is ready even though she is in Virgina.Grandma sure does miss her... It sure looks like snow but they are saying a mix of rain snow, and sleet...good day to work in the studio.Things here at the Mill House are coming along nicely..getting shows lined up, pouring candles, sewing, AND.... I would like to say a big heart felt THANKS to Becky of House on the Hill Hosting and Amy of Amybug's Primitive Attic . Becky is hosting my NEW website,Mill House Primitives, and has been very helpful in setting it up. Amy did all of my graphics for my blog, website,my Etsy shoppe, and my Ebay template. She does wonderful work and is very, very fast. These two girls are what wonderful customer service is all about. They go way above and beyond the call of duty! Well.. Hope you all have a blessed day as I have a few shoppes to fill and shows to get ready for! Until next time, Suzy
As I sit here at the computer, working on all of my plans for the new year...both personal and business... I find myself reflecting on the past year... lots of ups and downs... Rob losing his job, my Mom having gall bladder surgery, my Dad a couple of eye surgeries, losing our 8 year old loving beagle Scrappy, my parents losing their 13 year old bassett hound Sage, my son-in-law John being deployed to the gulf of Iraq, our sons girlfriend Fiona,struggling with cancer and chemotherapy, and me struggling to maintain a balance in my life... on the positive side of 2008... Rob went back to work at his old job where he worked for over 5 years 3 years ago.. he is close to home, home every night... and very happy now, our sweet granddaughter, Emme, turned one in April and our grandson, Cameron,turned 2 in June, our daughter announced we were going to be grandparents again...hey,we must be getting good at this!....and lots of other good times as a family....So, looking forward to a new year, our main goal is to Simplify! We have been decluttering and setting goals for the new year... looking forward to our new grandchild in April, our son Rob is getting married to Fiona on July 25, 2009.. that becomes a package deal as she has a one year old, Caleb! More grandchildren.. YAY!!!! I have also committed myself to posting in here and showing you my new creations at least once a week! So with being said... my filing cabinet needs some more decluttering...Until next time,Suzy
