Winter "Solstice"

Well, I hate to say it, but winter is knocking at our door here in Ohio. The beautiful fall leaves have peaked and they are slowing making their decent downward. The air has turned crisp and cool and believe it or not, we've had a few flakes come down a couple of weeks ago. So, with that said, I thought I better get it in gear and start some winter dollies. Here is my first snowgirl of the season. Her name is Solstice. I love her toile dress with subtle layering of fabrics and just enough bling to make her shine even brighter!
Here is her link if you would like to see more!


Here is hoping the sun is shining where you are and have a Primsical Day!

Happy Monday!

At least I hope it's a happy Monday for you! The only reason I like Monday's is because Dancing with the Stars is on! LOL I admit, I am addicted to it. Unfortunately, I have to work this evening, so my main squeeze is going to record it for me. I don't have anything to list on Ebay this week, but I am working on two new projects. They both will debut next year! Luckily, I will enjoy looking at them for the next 4 months in my workroom. LOL

I was going through some old files on my computer this morning, deleting ones that were no longer important and I found something that made me smile! It was a poem that my daughter wrote in 7th grade and I forgot all about it. I had to share it with you all because I can't believe a then 12 year old wrote this and I'm very proud of my girl!

Who Are Our Future Heroes?

Our future heroes
Are the kind, the caring, and the nice
Our heroes are people who
Give old toys to the poor
Or give up time to volunteer
Heroes are kind and caring

The people who say excuse-me
Or thank-you
Are very polite and have good manners
If they carry the books and binders
At school for those with a
Broken leg or arm
Heroes help one another

Future heroes are responsible
For what they say and do
They are also
People we often look
Up to

Our heroes are the sharing and true
Who never hardly lie
And share their things with
Other people
They are the people who do work
Without wanting pay

Heroes are those who help their
Parent or guardian
Do the dishes or cut the lawn
They try hard in school
And never cheat and play by the rules

They hold fund-raisers
For a good cause
Our future heroes help the elderly
Open doors
Or cross the road
Heroes are those that try to help all ages
Learn and try new things

Those who all they want back
Is knowing they did a good deed
Future heroes need all of these qualities so why don’t you try
To be a good role model to all humanity

Thanks for stopping by and have a Primsical Day!

Fun Filled Weekend!

What a weekend my family and I had! The first leg of our journey took us to Northville, MI to the annual Ghoultide Gathering. I have been wanting to get to this gathering for the past 2 years and finally made it and it was so worth the drive! I will go back each year because the artians and atmosphere is just that good!

I met so many wonderful people and it was so great to be able to put a face with a name. Below is one of the treasures I purchased from my friend Pam Gracia of Soft in the Head. When we got there, it started raining, so I wasn't able to take many pictures. But if you go to Pam's blog, she has some great pics to share with you!

It was just a super fun day! After the show, we traveled north to Bass Pro Shops in Auburn Hills, MI. My hubby was in heaven and soon my daughter was also in heaven when we realized a huge mall was attached to the store. LOL

Four hours later, we were back in our little house ready to start the next day!

Fun Filled Weekend II

One of my most favorite places to shop, was on the second leg of our weekend journey. The Pine Tree Barn in Wooster, OH has a Williamsburg Festival the first weekend of October and this year my family and I were able to go. Williamsburg, VA is my favorite place to visit, so having this so close to home (only an hour away) was such a primsical blessing for me!

There were alot of people dressed in their best Revolutionary garb and

some were just taking a break from all the action!

This one makes me so thankful for my gas stove! LOL

This looks like I caught them in the middle of a heated debate, but looks can be deceiving!

This is one place that I will go back to again and again. Besides the outside activities, the restaurant was booming as well as their primitive store. Here is their link if you would like to see more!


I did buy some great wool from one of the outside vendors that I hope to use on an upcoming project. Also found some kewl, tin clip candleholders.

Thanks for sharing my day with me!

The Pretty and the Ugly!

I have a couple of different dollies this week to share with you all! The first is pretty ugly,- Mumified Madge. I tried a different technique in creating her and love the results! Check out her auction link to find out more!

And now for the pretty...... This is Elvira or El for short. She is my Trick or Treat dolly. Her dress is made from layers of tulle and a retro Halloween fabric. Her glass glitter mask and treat bag are both removeable! Here is her link if you would like to see more!

I have a few days off from work, so I must get busy creating another dolly. Hope you all have a Primsical Day!

NEW Halloween dolly!

I can't believe I forgot to post my new dolly, Wesleigh! It's been since May since I've had any new doll to list on Ebay, so I guess I'm a little out of practice! LOL
Here is her link if you would like to see more:

The auction ends on Sunday, September 27th at 9:15 PM.

I have a new one to list this Sunday night. She is a little different from what I usually make, but somethings different is good! Watch for Mumified Madge!

Hope you all have a Primsical Day!

Happy Holidays!

Hello Everyone!
It's been tooooooo long since I updated my blog! The summer went by so fast. Most of you know I took a temp job over the summer. It kept me very busy and wasn't able to do much sewing. Now the temp job has turned into a permanent job! Not as many hours, but enough, and I can start sewing again!

I do have Great News to share with you all! My creation, Sherwood Snowman, is in the pages of the Holiday issue of Create and Decorate Magazine! The issue hit the newsstands yesterday (September 15th)! I want to thank everyone at Create and Decorate for being so wonderful and it was such a pleasure working with everyone!

Here is the website link if you would like to peek:

There was a couple of "oops" in the pattern itself, which
C & D has added to their website. The instructions weren't complete and the pattern for the hat is missing. You can download the instructions on their site or email.

Here are the dimensions for Sherwood's hat pieces:
The brim of the hat is 4" across and the top of the hat is 2.75" across. (Circles) The hatband is 1.25" x 8."

I hope you all had a great summer! I am currently working on a Halloween doll and hope to have it listed on Ebay this Sunday!
Have a Primsical Day!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! Many blessings to you all!

Creepy Skelley's anyone???

Hello!! I just listed the creepiest 6" skeletons on Ebay. If you leave them as a garland, they stretch 60", but they can be separated and used with dolls, in a coffin or whatever your imagination comes up with. Here is the link if you would like to see more:

Hope your day is going well! Until next time!

Black and Orange Season begins......

June is the official kick off of the 2009 Halloween/Fall Season or better known as the Black and Orange Parade! LOL I have started this new season off with a sweet gal named Junie. The inspiration for her came when I was watching a movie called The Duchess. The movie was set in the late 1700's in England. The women were all dressed in corseted fashions and had big dresses and big hair! They also enjoyed their masked balls. Here is Junie's link if you would like to see more!

I recently changed my Ebay ID from kathysprims to primsicalstudios. My Etsy ID will remain kathysprims. (Too hard to change there!) Guess everyone needs a change once in a while.

Hope you all have a Primsical Day and many blessings to you all!

The Cape.......

This is a place that is on my "list" of things to see and do. I've been to the ocean many times, but there is a draw to Cape Cod that I can't explain.

Maybe the draw is the amount of history that surrounds the area. Or the quaintness of the villages.

Lobster is something I have never tried but want to. I heard that there is nothing like fresh caught lobster and can't wait to try some!

Thanks for stopping by and dreaming a little with me!

Have a Primsical Day!

Bucket List.....

Have you seen the movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman? It's about two guys who are terminally ill and meet in the hospital. One puts together a list of things he wants to do before he dies. The other finds the list and makes it happen for him. Well, this is one of those things that is on my bucket list,- a ride in a Hot Air Balloon! A couple towns away from me are having their annual Balloon Festival. Starts Friday night with a fly-in from 6-7:30 PM and is held at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds in Coshocton, OH. It's all FREE to see and to get into the fairgrounds. Here's a link if you would like to see more:

Hope you all have a great day!

As promised, here are just a few of the pics I took while in DC. I was a chaperone for my daughter's 8th grade trip and we all had such a wonderful time. So much to see and so little time. Can't wait to go back someday and see more of everything.

More DC pics......
