Help With New Look For My Blog

Hi gals

I really need your help!!! Angie Wenke of Heartland Graphics just made me this new banner and backround for my blog. The problem is I can't figure out how to put the new backround on the page. Does any one out there know how to do it. If so please help!!! Since I can't get the backround on the page I have been playing around with the colors all night. I am limited with the colors blogger offers so I am having trouble matching them up.

What do you think of these colors? What do you think of my new banner? Any help on placing my new backround on or suggestions on the colors would be appreciated.

Thank You gals for your help!!!

A Great Big Thanks To Everyone

Well I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We all did we spent Christmas eve over at my sisters and Christmas day at my Mother in laws. All of my family got together at my sisters house we are an extremely large family I have 3 sisters and 1 brother and we all have lots of kids. We all had a great time you should have seen all of the presents in one house it's was crazy. We all got what we wanted from santa and more. I had the pleasure of having all of my family together for Christmas.

I just want to thank all of you for a great year and to let you all know that I have enjoyed all the wonderful friends I have met here on blogland and through my website and shows!!! It has been a very fun journey and I have learned a lot from all of you.

Just to let you all know I will be adding more raggedies and wood signs on my website soon. I have some new sayings for my signs that I think you will enjoy. I went out shopping today and I bought some very cute Valentine fabric.


I can hardly wait to use it and sew up some new raggedies for you all!!!

I was extremely busy this holiday season and I am sorry I was not able to add any of my raggedy ann dolls or wood items on my website. I now have everything under control so you will be hearing from me a lot more now that all that rush is over.

Oh I am still fighting this flu just when I think I am getting better it starts right up again. But I guess it might also be that it's been very very cold here and I just can't stay indoors and rest. I am very active and I cannot sit still even when I am sick, there is just to much to get done!!! New dolly and wood ideas and the list goes on and on.

Well I guess that's all my sharing for now. Feel free to comment I'd love to hear how you spent your Christmas Day. Oh if you have any ideas for some new raggedy ann dolls you would like to have me make just let me know. I am always open for new ideas from you all.

Thank You All,

Whew The Rush Is Over

Hi Everyone

I just got done with the last of my orders on Monday and shipped all of these raggedies out to there new owners. Some of them are going to be Christmas gifts.


This was a very very busy season for me but I did enjoy it. This is why you have not heard from me in awhile, no time to do any posting. Just work work work trying to get all my orders out and doing some craft shows.!!!

But it is over and now it's time to look at next years plans for My County Cottage and Raggedy Dollys. I have some new ideas for both my wood and dollys that I will be making for the new year. I have some cute Valentine dollys coming soon!!!

Oh and did I tell you after I shipped out the last of my orders I came down with the flu. How fair is that when I now have to get ready for Christmas at the last minute, like I do every year and I get sick. While it's raining outside and I still have to do all of my Christmas shopping and here it is Wed. already. I am trying to decide if I should go out shopping and risk getting worst or try going out tomorrow. I am stressing about getting everything done so I guess I will take the chance and go out shopping today!!!

I just wanted to share a photo of our Christmas tree with you all. Notice no presents under the Christmas tree yet! Yikes need to go shopping like now!!!


I had a Christmas decorating party with my kids and they all helped decorate the tree and house. We had a lot of fun doing it but they had to bear with my holiday music. I played it while we did the decorating, just to put us in a festive mood!!! We shared in the memories of each ornament, what it meant to each of us and who made it and the date it was made. You see I have all of my kids ornaments they made when they were young and we have fun unpacking and looking at them every year. They are so proud of there creations and that I have saved them all of these years.

That's it for now I really do need to go shopping!!!
Thank you for visiting
