~*All About Wings... and another FREEBIE*~

Hello Dear Friends!

Our weekends, only due to my husband's work schedule, are three days... always.  They are Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.  It really allows us to get a lot accomplished around home and, more importantly, spend more time together.

This weekend, my dear husband helped me with a few of my crafty and junky projects...

First... we made an angel... that I have named Laverne... from thrown out, scrappy items...

an old shutter
piece to a twin bed (with the legs cut off)
sticks from a small garden trellis
scrap piece of plywood
grapevine wreath
flower garland... 
(Both the wreath and garland were found at a thrift store for very few pennies!)
 She hangs on a shed near our chickens.  I think she is just darling!!! 

Why did I name her Laverne?  She is named after my dear Aunt Laverne... that passed away on July 21st.  I miss her dearly, but I know she is in a good place now and is surrounded by love.  She will always be near and dear to me.

~*~*~*~*~*~

This morning, I purchased an old ceiling fan that was found on a Buy, Sell, Trade site.  It didn't take me long to put these dragonflies together!

This one is made with an old table leg, the ceiling fan blades (cut down to make a little curvy on the ends), old junk cabinet knobs for eyes, and pieces of a rusty coat hanger for antennae... It now hangs on the side of our boathouse near the pond...

While I had all the tools out... I made another!  This one is constructed from old boards ~ already painted white... and now chippy, old furniture hardware for eyes, and rusty bed-springs for the antennae.  (I think this one is my favorite of the two!)... It now hands on the front end of our pole-barn... facing the road.  Maybe it will make a passerby chuckle a bit!

I think all the re~claimed... re~purposed projects from our weekend are quite fun!

~*~*~*~*~*~

And while I'm still on a 'wing' kick.... Here is another simple FREEBIE DOODLE for you...

~*Angel Love*~
 

She is simple.  The heart was left bare on purpose... maybe you will want to add initials? ... or cut the heart opening to frame a picture?  The design will be much more interesting when the fibers are added... the colors... the medium used.... the process of crafting with it.  At least that is what I'm thinking.  Have fun with it!

Enjoy!  Hook, punch, stitch, paint... whatever the medium you choose... have fun with the doodle!  Resize to your desire.  Please though... give credit for the design to me ~ primitivebettys/Betty Dekat.  Your finished works may be sold, but no 'mass production' please.  Also, DO NOT sell the pattern!  It is free FREE FREE!  Thank you!  Oh... and I do love to see those finished items!  Share them with me!

 ~*~*~*~*~*~

The rest of the time over the weekend was mostly used for yard work... and resting.  It has been brutally hot here!  I can't even begin to tell you how much I've sweat!!!  Aarrggghhh

Wishing you all warm smiles... and crafty fun!

~*Are You Punching, Hooking, Stitching... Crafting?*~

Hello Dear Friends!

Well, if you are feeling crafty... here is another FREEBIE DOODLE for YOU!

~*Scaredy Cat*~ © 2015 primitivebettys
 
Yes, it is very similar to the ~*Halloween Kitty*~ from last year.  I find it comical to compare the faces from last year to this year.  I had not looked at last years doodle until I went to post this picture and saw it in the file.  Hmmmm... what does it mean?  LOL

I can see either doodle crafted without the Jack~O~Lantern faces.  They would make sweet Autumn ditties with just plain pumpkins.  Don't ya think? 


Well... either way... Enjoy!  Hook, punch, stitch, paint... whatever the medium you choose... have fun with the doodle!  Resize to your desire.  Please though... give credit for the design to me ~ primitivebettys/Betty Dekat.  Your finished works may be sold, but no 'mass production' please.  Also, DO NOT sell the pattern!  It is free FREE FREE!  Thank you!  Oh... and I do love to see those finished items!  Share them with me!

Wishing you all warm smiles... and crafty fingers!

~*How About Another... *~

Hello Dear Friends!

Isn't the ~*Goofy Witch*~ quite... GOOFY?

Enjoy!  Hook, punch, stitch, paint... whatever the medium you choose... have fun with the doodle!  Resize to your desire.  Please though... give credit for the design to me ~ primitivebettys/Betty Dekat.  Your finished works may be sold, but no 'mass production' please.  Also, DO NOT sell the pattern!  It is free FREE FREE!  Thank you!  Oh... and I do love to see those finished items!  Share them with me!

This freebie doodle was inspired by my early pumpkin... picked fresh from my garden yesterday.  Isn't it cute?  It is a small one... good for pies I suppose.  Hmmm... maybe I will give it a try and whip up a fresh-from-the-oven, pumpkin pie!  SMILE!
 
Also in my garden... blooming beautifully... my Zinnia... so pretty!
Wishing you all warm smiles... and happy crafting!
