Gotta Get a Zibbet Keychain

I did an awesome trade with Scott, the owner of the Dusty Newt. I hope he likes the buttons I made for him as much I love this keychain.

I used to do the state fairs and I've seen many wooden name keychains before, so what I got in the mail today was not what I was expecting. The wooden name keychains at the fairs have ragged edges, and aren't sanded. When you order from the Dusty Newt on Zibbet, expect quality.

This key chain is glossy smooth, made extremely well!!

The metal key ring is large enough to stuff a mess of keys onto it. And get this! It comes with a lifetime guarantee. Seriously.

If you don't want an

I♥ZIBBET keychain......Scott makes any names or words you want. Check it out!

Another neat thing happened today. I went into an Army-Navy store to purchase a new can opener because the one I have is so worn out it won't cut butter. The only ones they had were the same kind I have. I was explaining to the clerk that I want the smaller ones, the real military issue can opener. But that was all he had. A young man in uniform heard the conversation and told me had one in his truck. He went out to get it and brought it back into the store. Took it off his keys and gave it to me. That made my day, too! I offered to pay for it, but he refused. I gave him one of my buttons with my web site on it and told him to stop by my shop and pick out a button, and just let me know he gave me the can opener, and I'll make him a button for free. I don't know if he ever will, but I hope he does.

You can see the new can opener n the first photo.

Danielle has passed us by, Earl, now a Cat 4, might just skim the US, but he keeps ducking lower. Fiona remains to be seen, but is also projected to curve north.

There's a cool blog giveway....

......going on right now at Stitch ~n~ Studio.

The prize will be this awesome ORANGE bag and I hope I win because it is my 20-year old daughter's favorite color.

Anyone know how to repair a key?

Was just heading out to the post office to ship orders and my key broke. The only key I have to my trusty Toyota truck. I am stranded.

Art Supplies Galore: Look what our neighbors gave us

This should keep my daughter, The Purple Rat, busy painting for a while.
Neighbor contacted me and asked if she would like some more art supplies. We had bought some at their yard sale last year and then they have given us even more when the sale ended.

Yesterday they told us to come and get the rest of it.

WOW! A big wood easel, 1 portable metal easel, and small metal tabletop easel, a folding stool, piles and piles of canvases, paints, pastels, quality brushes, and more.

We moved it from the truck to the porch and snapped some photos before bringing it all into the house.
