New Cards Fresh From The Oven

Okay, maybe not the oven but I do have 12 new cards available in the shop. After spending so many months sick with the whole gall bladder/pancreas debacle, I'm back to work. I have so many ideas & plans for projects that my head is spinning. I still deal with my usual pain issues everyday but having my gall bladder removed was a huge relief & I'm ready to make 2015 a fabulous year for Michele Littlefield Designs.

Right now I'm working on my 2015 Michele Littlefield Designs wall calendar. It will be available for pre order in the next few weeks. It is going to be fantastic & I'm really excited for you to see it. The last one I did was in 2012 & I've had many requests for a new one. Well, ask & you shall receive. A calendar is in the works. I'll let you all know when you can put in your order. 
So here are a few of the cards that I've added to my inventory.....

I finally redesigned the back of my cards too

These are just a few of the cards. You can find these & more here in my shop. If you are a retailer with your own store, I offer wholesale orders as well. Contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you.
I'm off to do some more work on the calendar. I wish you all a lovely evening. XOXO

I'm Baaaacckkkkkkkk!

Hello, Beautiful People,
I hope you all had a glorious summer. I was pretty busy & somehow didn't blog one bit of it. (Note to self: work on that.) We spent the summer gardening, creating art, drinking far too many milkshakes & all that good stuff. With 7 months of winter, we try to spend as much time outdoor when the weather is nice. I'll just post a bunch of pictures so you can see what has been happening here at Casa de Littlefield.
The garden was fantastic this year.

We went on a few road trips

Dave made a new friend that cried everytime he walked away

I tried Lemon Basil & Strawberry ice cream. It was delicious
We did a lot of yard saling & thrift shopping

My favorite treasure I found while thrifting

Best thrift shop find EVER!
We had many milkshakes
We did some home improvement projects

I did A LOT of spray painting

I did a lot of art projects & obviously had quite a thing for polka dots
I added 12 new greeting cards to my line. You can find them here

I also added new items to my vintage & creative supply shop
I hope you've had a wonderful summer & you're all ready for fall. I'll pop in sooner than later next time. Cheers!

The Surgery Is Over & My Shops Are Open Again

Hey Party People,
It's been a week since I had my gall bladder removed. The surgery was a success & I'm starting to feel like a normal human being again. Well, normal to me that is. HA! Dave has taken excellent care of me & I am a lucky lady to have someone so awesome in my world. 
I had big plans for things to do while I was recovering but I was in a lot of pain & my plans were squashed. I ended up reading a lot & watching quite a bit of TV instead. After 5 years of gall bladder issues with the last 4 months being pure hell, I am so relieved to be done with the surgery. Every day I feel a little better & I look forward to being totally healed. Etsy shops are open again & I've got a lot of new ideas floating around in my head so that means new cards, new art & big things coming. 

A few days ago I went on walkabout in the yard & took some pictures. I couldn't get upstairs to the craft room (nor did I feel up to it) so I got creative taking pictures. Enjoy!

Shop Update

Hello there,
I just wanted to let everyone know that my both of my Etsy shops & my Big Cartel shop will be closed 5/28/14 until 6/8/14. I'm having surgery & will be taking some time off while I'm  recovering. I hope to be back in action on the 8th & I plan to feel good enough to take this business of mine to a whole new level.  Thank you for your interest, I really appreciate it.

The Trash & Treasure Sale

Greetings & Salutations,
This weekend was the Trash & Treasure sale in Presque Isle, Maine. On Saturday I went with my fab friends, Erin & Toni. We had a blast & it was so nice to spend the afternoon with these awesome ladies. I found these treasures on Saturday.....
More Shiny Brite ornaments for my collection

I love my "new" Fisher Price barn. It looks like someone enjoyed playing with it for many years & that makes me happy. I have so many great memories of playing with my Fisher Price toys when I was a kid. That reminds me, I need to ask my Mom where those are.
I noticed quite a bit of stuff that my sweet husband might like so we went back on Sunday.  We stopped at Tim Horton's for a coffee on the way there & spent the afternoon looking around at all the cool stuff people were selling. I had to exercise restraint & not buy every single thing I wanted since we're going to be moving cross country. It wasn't easy but I pulled it off. The less we have to move the better.
This binder was FULL of button cards. 

I wanted to buy every single one

I wish I had bought some of these. I think they would look great in a big jar

Vintage Avon soaps

A metal doll house with all the furniture & of course Red Rose tea figurines

These are my treasures that I brought home with me on Sunday. 

We had to have the Beavis bobble head. I love the napkin holder & how awesome is this camera?

This pink elephant is from Avon & it was made in the 60's. This little metal car is my new favorite thing in the world. I've always wanted mugs like this so I'm pleased as punch that I found them. The little plates are so tacky that I had to buy them. One has the Tower Of Pisa on it & the other has landmarks in London, England. They're fabulous little kitschy souvenirs from someones vacations. I couldn't pass up the Life Saver bank or Marge Simpson. It wouldn't be right if I didn't give these treasures a home. Would it?
It was an excellent weekend & I hope yours was great as well. TTFN.
