Hello gorgeous! I returned late Friday night, from Virginia.  This little boy is growing up way too quickly and I don’t want to miss a beat!  He’s so happy and easy to please and he looked so adorable in this hand-me-down astronaut jumpsuit!  I wish his dad was as carefree and happy.  Divorce is so hard! I pray for him all the time and need to remember that God’s at the wheel. On to the fun stuff!… Thanks to Dori, we had back-to-back Decoupaged Tennies workshops, on Saturday and Sunday and the finished projects were adorable! My favorite had to…

Greetings from Virginia!

By Barbara Bussey | May 13, 2024 |

Hello Darling! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! My Mother’s Day gift was to visit my son and grandson, in Virginia. Cheryl organized a wonderful Mother’s Day workshop on Saturday. Yes, you can apply Iron orchid Designs on canvas! Darlene found this amazing cookie recipe, that she baked up for Makers Day. Cheryl suggested it be our signature workshop cookie and baked them again for Saturday’s workshop. Hopefully you can read the recipe above. It truly is delicious!  If you love a great cookie, here you go! Dori’s back this Saturday and Sunday, teaching the ever-popular decoupaged tennis shoe…

Storewide Mother’s Day Sale!

By Barbara Bussey | May 6, 2024 |

Hello, gorgeous! How the heck are you? Fabulous, I hope! Poor Mr.Wonderful! He had to put up with me this morning, as I was stressing over rearranging the shop! You see, Cheryl sold our vintage German beer garden table, to a lovely couple, on Sunday. Yes, I guess we are supposed to sell the furniture we have for sale!  ???? But, what about my displays?! Ha! I threw this together, for a quick fix, until another beer garden table arrives. What would I do if something truly serious came my way, I thought? Everything calmed down once I reminded myself that I…

Free furniture painting demo, this Saturday!

By Barbara Bussey | April 29, 2024 |

Greetings, dear friend! I’m sitting at the kitchen table this beautiful Monday afternoon and am so in love with this time of year, as I look out into the back yard! The Iceberg roses are proudly showing off their first big bloom of the season.  I love this variety, because they are prolific bloomers and require little to no skill on my part, to grow.  That’s a win-win, for sure! _________________ Our annual Makers Day, this past Saturday, was so fun.  We celebrated lots of creative success, along with smiling faces! We couldn’t have done it without the help of…

News from the shop!

By Barbara Bussey | April 17, 2024 |

Hello, friend! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the beautiful days! Do you celebrate Mother’s Day? If you’re still lucky enough to have your mom in your life, celebrate it! My mom passed away years ago and I miss her.  I am certain she would be working at the shop, if she was still here.  I would have gotten all sorts of advice and she would have had a blast! If you are looking for a way to honor your Mom, I may have a couple of ideas. Fancy Tote Workshop, May 11th, $25.00 We try to do a…

Spring is here and we’re ready!

By Barbara Bussey | April 8, 2024 |

Hello, darling! I’m writing to you on Monday, during what appears to be an unimpressive solar eclipse. At least here in California!  Are you in a part of the country, where it was more memorable? My sister-in-law, in Texas, had an amazing black-out! In other news, I attended a family baby shower on Saturday.  What a beautiful event and the day was gorgeous!  Two weekends in a row, to visit my sisters. 🙂 Back at the shop… I was so happy to see all of you who wanted to learn all about Iron Orchid Designs’ Paint Inlays! Now, you’re probably…
