Product Updates

I'm doing something different on my website now, and thought I'd fill you all in. Usually my items are made to order on my website, and that is still being offered. What I've done now, is to let you know how many of a particular item I have in stock of my painted pieces. I thought this was a good idea, in case anyone had last minute shopping to do, or wanted something right now.
I'm still working on filling orders for the holiday season, and today I added one more item to my website. I made these Primitive Angels for the craft show I attended a couple weeks ago. I have 4 of these in stock, you can find them here.
I think she's beautiful, and perfect for everyday decor, or as a Christmas decoration.

See ya soon!

Thought I'd do a quick pop in and let ya all know, that I've been absent for a while and will continue to be until after Christmas. We had Thanksgiving, then a Craft Show we attended, and then received a bunch of Christmas orders that were busy filling. So I haven't had much time to blog. I will be back after the Christmas orders are finished. I hope you all are doing ok, and I look forward to doing some blog hopping after everything calms down some.

Marketplace Monday Etsy OFG Artisian Charlene of Cat's Designs

Good Monday morning blogging friends! Today I'm featuring Charlene with Cat's Designs for my Marketplace Monday. Charlene has been crafting for 30 years. Here is some info on Charlene, and a couple of things she has in her store. Please stop by her store to see what else she has to offer! She makes some really wonderful items!

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
My Etsy shops name is CatsDesigns and I chose it because those are the initials in my name and at the time I couldn't think of anything else.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
I joined Etsy in March of 2008.

3. What type of items do you offer?
I offer Prim and Folkart decorations for your home, dolls, handbags and jewelry.

4. How long have you been crafting?
It seems like I've been crafting all my life. When I was younger we didn't have a television until I was 10 years old, so I use to design dresses for my dolls out of old clothes.

5. Who or What inspires you?
God inspires me the most by allowing me to do what I love to do. Also the many pattern designers who come up with these fabulous designs. Right now I am most inspired by artists like Terrye French, Renee Mullins and Jamie Mills Price. My favorite doll designers are Maureen at Sweet Meadows Farm and Kat from Kats Country Prims.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
It's hard to pick just one item it changes with what I'm doing at the time. I love painting and sewing for the seasons.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

My Art Room

Hello all my blogging friends! I can't believe the week is almost over all ready, can you? Geeze time seems to be flying by for me. It was suggested that I give you a tour of where I work, so I thought I would share some photos of my art room. We've actually turned one of our bedrooms in our home into a "Do It All Room! And I literally mean that!  My office, painting area, scrapbooking area, sewing, shipping and inventory are all in one room! So here it is.
My Office

My Painting area.

Scrapbooking area.

Shipping area.

My sewing machines are pulled out as needed, and that isn't very often, for now. The inventory is on the right, (the glass doors) a double door closet that is full to the brim with items to paint! As you can see I'm a very organized gal, it helps with production if I have everything I need in one room. Ok, now onto the stuff I'm making. The Terrye French stuff is in the works, and will be added next week. Have a great Friday everyone! ~Blessings~Jody

Primitive Ornaments - Terrye French & My Designs

Ok, so I know this is my second post for the day, but remember I said I was going to blog about the new ornaments I've been making.  So here they are.  The first set is a Terrye French design. They were made to look old for a time worn look. You can find both of these at;
Here is another set that I designed, these were fun to make too! They were painted crackled white over black, painted to look old. They have a willow tree & the word "Simplify" painted on both sides. Each has rusty wire legs, and a rusty bell hanging off their neck, and hang from tea dyed red plaid ticking. Both sets of ornaments are available as singles, or sets!

I have several Terrye French Christmas things I'm working on right now and hope to have them up by the end of the week. Talk to ya soon!~Blessings~Jody
Anyone interested in my products can find my items here under the Hand Painted By Me category. Thank you for your interest in my products! ~Jody~

Hand Painted Snowman

Happy Wednesday everyone! "Meet Snow Bright". I painted this Snowman, a Renee Mullins design, in Buttermilk, and then decided he needed to be lightened up, so I textured him in white, so he actually looks like a snowman. Snow Bright has an attached wood nose, and arm. He's wearing a green vest adorned with snowflakes, and a blue scarf. He has a Saltbox house with trees and stars on the lower half of him. The back of him is painted in solid matching colors. What is nice about him, is that you can have him with different options at no additional charge. Options are: Have him painted plain with no scene. With the scene, and with or without snowtex, battery operated tealight or regular tealight, as you can see from the photos below he looks different in each one. He's holding a miniture black metal lantern in each photo, with glass sides & handle, that holds a battery operated tealight, or a regular tealight candle. He comes assembled to the base and ready to use. He measures 29" Tall x 18" Wide from tip of arm to edge of scarf x 1" Thick. The base he is attached to is painted white and shaded to match him. He has a brace in the back that he is screwed to so he stands firmly. The base measures 10" Long x 4" Wide x 1" Thick.
With scene.

Without scene.

With SnowTex, you can click on the photo to see where I've added it. But it's on his hat, nose, several spots on his arm, twig arm, roof of house, and on the hill.
I have finished a set of Primitive Christmas Ornaments, and will be posting them later today as well.
See ya soon!

Marketplace Monday Etsy OFG Artisian Barb Stock of Barb's Heartstrokes

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today's Marketplace Monday feature is Barb Stock of Barb's Heartstrokes. Barb lives in Utah with her husband and two children. Barb creates wonderful whimsical paintings, and they're adorable, as you can see below. Please stop by her Etsy shop, she has wonderful items you'll love! Here's a little about Barb and a link to her Etsy shop.

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
‘Heartstrokes ’ came about because I was an Intensive Care Cardiac nurse and was learning to paint. So between my job and learning to paint they were both quite a challenge. But anything that is a challenge usually is worth it. So when I started a business it seemed natural to combine the two.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
Brand new since April 2010

3. What type of items do you offer?
I hand paint everyday and seasonal designs on framed fiberglass black screen with acrylic paint. It has a flair of folk art, primitive, and whimsy. I also paint ornaments , magnets, and any surface that looks interesting to me.

4. How long have you been crafting?
I have been painting for about 14 years. My husband was in the Air force and was deployed overseas so I took an acrylic painting class at a local craft store and loved it!

5. Who or What inspires you?
Many artists of the painting world inspire me, fun whimsical patterns and COLORS!

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
That is a hard question to answer…I end up falling in love with what ever I happen to be painting at the present time. But my latest favorite is I love this Witch!

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)?
I have a fairly new blog at
Have a great day everyone!

Chenille Snowman With Cardinals

It's a cold rainy blustery fall day here in Washington state this morning. And as I sit here drinking my coffee and watching the weather report I was thinking about snow! I know some of you already have some, wish we did! I LOVE snow! Anyhow I thought I'd show you my Chenille Snowman that I've made.

He's featured in the November issue of Country Sampler magazine (pg 62 in a room setting & 187 with my company info). This little guy is made of Chenille fabric. He's stuffed and weighted at the bottom so he stands firmly. This particular one I have antiqued the  fabric with tea, vanilla & cinnamon. He's been sprinkled generously with Mica Glitter. His eyes, and buttons are peppercorns, his nose is made of wood and hand carved. He has rosy pink cheeks. He's wearing a red fleece scarf around his neck. In his left hand he holds a birdhouse on a post. The right hand he's holding some twig sprigs with red cardinals perched on the branches. I've also attached a black felt hat to his head, which has a birds nest, and cardinal sitting in the nest. There is snow (snow tex) on many of the twig branches, his nose, & his hat & the birdhouse.
What's great about this snowman, is you can get him without the antiquing, glitter, and scent, and you may also choose your birdhouse color. And, you won't find him anywhere else but here! These make perfect gifts for friends and family. Here is a direct link to him on my website.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a good day!

I'm Back!

Hello Blogging Friends! Hey I'm back! I've been gone for about a month rebuilding my website.   All I can say, is that I wish that on no one! It took me a full month to transfer all my products over and get things up and running.  But, I am glad that I did it, because it will make surfing my website faster and easier for my customers.  It looks more professional too!  Any way, I'm going to be having a sale soon, to celebrate the new site, and will post it here to let you know it's going on. It feels so good to be back, I miss everyone!
Right now I'm working on a Ceramic Utensil Holder, then I'm moving on to a custom order for a customer in Florida. I've been asked to paint to Cabinet Panels for her kitchen. I'm designing these and they're going to be awesome when finished. I will post a photo here when their done. I hope you all are doing well, and can't wait to see what everyone has been up too!

Missing In Action

Ok, so by now you are probably wondering what in the world happened to me.........Why I haven't blogged, done my Market Place Monday, nor a Whatcha Workin On Wednesday!  No, No, nothing is wrong, as a matter of fact everything is great and it couldn't be better! There are a couple reasons why I haven't posted, and will explain.

In my last post dated September 5th, I spoke about the OFG Halloween Celebration.  That is under way on Etsy right now, and runs until September 30th.  I've been busy with our group commenting on the members blogs, making treasuries when I can, and trying to keep up with the happenings around our group.  Here's the direct link to our Halloween Celebration.
Here are two of the items that I made for the Halloween Celebration: You can find both of these items here:
A Primitive Fall Cutting Board inspired by Terrye French.  I just love her designs!  The other is this old bucket that I've turned into a Primitive Fall Floral a OOAK.  It turned out just beautiful!  I had so much fun designing both of these pieces.

Speaking of Terrye French..................I'm getting ready to embark on a new journey with her, and will be joining the "Painting With Friends" group! I'm very excited about this, because I love her work, and I think it will be a ton of fun! I will be offering my patterns on my blog for sale as well as my website, Terrye's website, Ebay, and the "Painting With Friends" blog. I'll give ya the heads up when I complete my first design.
We're getting ready to turn a new leaf here at Adorable Country Classics.  In a few weeks you will see a slight change in the look of my website.  I will still be carrying the great products I have now, and will be adding a whole lot more as soon as the website work is complete.  In this change, it will be easier to navigate my website, and that makes happy customers. 
I've also been really busy filling orders as well. So it's been pretty busy around here, and my time has been limited, therefore my blog has kind of suffered, and I'm sorry about that.  Hopefully I can get the work done in a timely manner so I can get back on track!  I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend, and I will talk with you soon!~Blessings~Jody
