Today I added two new products to the site. You can find the primitive painting in the Primitive Category of the store.
I also added a set of Picket Fence Angel Ornaments to the Winter category of the store. Winter Category
Hope you like them!
There's been a change of plans as to what I was going to make. I've had some custom orders come in so I'm going to be working on some of those. First, A Tissue Cover, A Letter Holder, and the rest of them are winter products. All of them are new products that I hope you will like. Im spending my evenings and weekends painting new ornaments to add to the site, and also take with me to the show in December. Although, this weekend I will also be making my daughters baby shower invitations. I will add a photo of them when finished. Have a good weekend everyone, and be safe!
Later today I will post some photos of the new Christmas Ornaments that I made, they're just darling!

I had someone tell me, it looks like a sticker! lol Sorry, but this was all hand painted by yours truely! :) Click on the photos to see all the beautiful colors & detail in this painting.
Tomorrow I will be blogging about a recent custom order that I did. One of my loyal customers sent me a large firkin lid with an older painting on it. I sanded the old one off and painted a newer primitive painting on it. It looks so much nicer. I will be showing you some before and after photos, so check back to see this transformation. Have a good night! ~Jody~

- First, you'll notice on the left side where all the links are, that there is a link called "Your Account". You will now be able to log in and view or modify your own profile-name, address, email, etc. You will also be able to view the details of your orders.
- Second, you will be able to save your current cart. Once you have saved it, the saved cart can be recalled at any time.
- Third, your now able to use your store credits at checkout. For those of you who have store credits, I will be adding those shortly, so you can use them, any time you want.
- Fourth, we also have a "Where did you hear about us" option that you may use or not use, at checkout.
- Fifth, I have a event calendar link on the bottom left side. This is where you will find out what shows I will be attending & when.
I'm happy to report that I'm all caught up with orders!
New Products Coming Soon!
Besides the ornaments I'm working on at night and the weekends for the upcoming show I'll be attending in December, I'm also working on some custom orders that will be added to the site as well. They include:
3 Maxine Thomas-Primitive Paintings
A Primitive Tissue Cover
A Renee Mullins-Painting
So if your interested in seeing any of those please check back!
I'm also working on my photos for the store. I'm not the best picture taker, but have been practicing retaking photos of paintings that I do, so you can see the detail in my work better. So you may see some better photos of items on my site, and my blog. I have found that showing photos on my blog has been the best way to show the detail in my work. I think it's because I don't have to optimize the photos for the blog, and for the store, I do have to optimize them, and that is causing them to be distorted. So I'm working on that. I will be blogging tomorrow and adding another new photo. See ya soon! ~Jody~

But, first our story. Recently my husband and I tried to refinance our mortgage but ran into problems because the value of the home dropped $50,000.00 in two years of owning it. Our loan was an ARM and the montly payment was set to increase in August of this year by several hundred dollars. We knew we couldnt pay the increased amount, so we opted to call our lender. We explained our situation and the circumstances to them, filled out a couple forms they sent, and they did a loan modification with us. Yes, it was that easy!!! We have a much more affordable loan with a fixed rate, & low interest rate. I've recently heard that over 85,000 people who are eligible for the program aren't using it. I figure it's because people don't know where to go to get the process started. That is why I'm posting this today.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:
President Obama recently announced a broad national strategy aimed at helping homeowners to restructure or refinance their mortgage loans to prevent foreclosures. The Administration’s comprehensive plan is known as the Making Home Affordable Program.
The Making Home Affordable Program consists of two separate components:
The Home Affordable Modification Program assists homeowners already behind on their mortgage payments, as well as those anticipating financial difficulty.
The Home Affordable Refinance Program enables eligible homeowners to take advantage of today’s low interest rates — even if the outstanding mortgage balance is greater than the value of the home.
The official U.S. Treasury site contains a self-assessment tool designed to see if you are among the 7 to 9 million homeowners who may benefit from the refinance or modification programs available through this government program. You can also download a borrower Q&A there. We encourage you to use the resources from the Making Home Affordable Program.
I hope that you will take advantage of this, because they aren't going to be offering it for long, by what I'm hearing. So if you think you might be eligible, go to the website and use the Assesment Tool to see if you qualify! http://www.makinghomeaffordable.gov/
Have a Nice Day & thanks for stopping by for a visit!~Jody~
