New Shop For My Country Cottage/Raggedy Dollys

First of all I want to apologize for my links on my blog not working. There is a major problem again with my web host. They still can't figure it out but are working on it I hope, that is what they are telling me. But it has been a while and it is still not working. Very very frustrating I say well that's enough with my venting.

Moving on to what has been going on around here we finally got a new Dish DVR System I know were a little behind on all this new technology stuff. Well the big box arrived on Friday


and guess who has the honors of hooking up all this stuff up. You guessed it me, my hubby is not good with all this new electronic stuff and my son never has the time to help us. So I am the one elected to do it well I have to say after about 3 hours working on it including having to call the Dish company twice (you know how long a phone call can take with these companys) because they turned off my other dish box that is connected to our other t.v. when I connected the new one. Then all of my channels did not come up on the new DVR so another phone call had to be made. Anyway I was proud of myself because I was able to get it all working. : ) Even if it took me a long long time to do it, it all works fine!!!

It is amazing what you can do with a DVR we should have gotten this thing a lot sooner. Well were having fun with our new DVR you can set it up to record a movie way in advance and it's easy to set it up to record. The machine just starts up all by itself and records the movie for you. Then you can watch it when you have the time not when it's playing on T.V. This thing will record up to 100 hours WOW!

Now getting back to business I just finished a custom order I had to share with you all because they came out so cute. It's a pair of Angie Ann & Tony Andy Raggedies named after there new owners. This pair of Raggedies do not have a coffee wash.


I enjoy making custom orders for my customers, they get to design what they want there Raggedies to look like and they also get to name them. I am pleased when they get excited over there custom order. Tony Andy is a cute new design for me.

I have joined a new shop called Dandelion Darlings the Grand Opening is April 1st. Dandelion Darlings will update every 1st of the month with new items. I will have my Raggedy Ann Dolls, Prim Signs and some OOAK items on there. I will post a link to my shop here on my blog when I get it. You can visit the site Dandelion Darlings and sign there mailing list for monthly updates and a monthly drawing.

I do have a lot of new plans for My Country Cottage/Raggedy Dollys for the coming year. I will keep you all posted here on my blog.

Thank You for stopping by for a visit!!!

My Website Makeover

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have been very busy listing some new signs over on my website. I also made a new prim sign page and listed all my signs in one area go over and take a look. Prim Signs It's a lot easier to look at all of my signs in one place. I have subcategories on the prim sign page for the prim, primlighting and primfixins pages.
Here is a sample of some of my new items you will find over at my website.


You will find this new Bunco Plant pick at my Everyday Section


I also made subcategories under my Holiday Dollys section so you can view the different Holiday Raggedies grouped together by the holiday. Go over and check it out. Holiday Dollys I have been wanting to do some changes on my website to make viewing easier so I finally made some time to do it.

I will be doing more changes in the near future I have some other ideas brewing in my head. I will be adding two more new product lines I wont say what just yet it's a surprise. I also want to change the logo on my Raggedy Dollys page. I don't know what the new logo will be yet but I will be working soon with my graphic artist. I would love to hear of any ideas you may have for my logo. Comment here and let me know or email me that would be great!!!

Well that's what has been going on around here lately aside from doing my favorite craft show Sugar Plum. We had another great show with them this weekend. Saturday was the last day of the show and we went to tear down our booth from the show. Boy do we get a good workout as you can see from the photos it's a very large booth. We've been told by other vendors that we are building a house it's a joke we have gotten used to hearing from the other vendors. As it does take us a while to set up but with the three of us doing it myself, hubby and my son it goes pretty quick.

We came home and had a family night game of cards with myself, hubby, Adam, Melissa and her hubby. We had fun a great way to relax after a hard days work.

Thank You all for stopping by time for me to go and relax. I am off to watch a movie with some popcorn. I rented Awake I missed it at the theater I will let you know if it's any good I saw the trailers and it looked like it was a good movie.

Sugar Plum Show

Hi everyone
I have been so busy lately with lots of orders (Thank You everyone : ) and getting ready for the first Sugar Plum Show of the year. I'd like to share some photos of my booth taken today after set up. For those of you that cannot attend my show.



Here is a closeup of some of my Raggedy Ann Dolls and Bunny Girl Dolls. I think they came out very cute I am happy with them all!!! Sorry the coloring on this photo did not come out well I am still learning my new camera.


I also said I would let you all know how the Oklahoma Show went for me and my best friend Glenna. We did very well there and will be attending again next year. That is why I have been so busy getting ready for Sugar Plum I didn't have much product left from the Oklahoma Show. But that is a great thing I think?

I am so very tired of all of the late nights I have worked getting ready for this show. As you can see by all the products I have made that I have been busy.

I will be adding more product to both my Raggedy Dollys and My Country Cottage site very soon.

Oh I almost forgot I have taken new product to all three of my store locations if you can't make my show you can find my items at my stores. For my store locations click here

I guess that's it for now I need to get some sleep.

Thank You for stopping by and visiting my blog.
