This pictures absolutely do not give this tree justice! My Sister-In Law made an "ETSY" Tree for my casing my new line entitled EBs' (Meaning, Eclectic Beings). I absolutely LOVE THIS. This was such a wonderful and amazing gift! I was so excited when she gave it to me. Lady Lynn is such a thoughtful soul. If there were more people like her in the world, we all would be better off! I just adore my Sister-In-Law. She is extremely creative. Wait til you read some of her stories that she has written for my EBs'. Yes, each EB comes with their own story and birth certificate. Stay tuned....because I will post some here in the very near future.

Well, it looks like I will be calling 2FriendsDesign. These girls are great. I just don't have time to fix and maintain my main website. Hopefully, I will have time to go over to createashoppe.com and figure the whole thing out. But until that time, it looks like Lisa and Denise are getting a phone call...so girls.... look out! LOL

I took some pictures last night while we were tooling around the house. The view and the quiteness that we have...well...there are no words. I'm very thankful everyday for what we have. Take a peek into our world after we come home from work... Let me know what you think? I have some more, but the darn things are not working right. Oh... this love hate relationship with the computer is going to kill me! LOL I hope you all have a wonderful evening. I'll post more tomorrow. I have to finish cooking dinner before everyone goes to sleep without their dinner! Here is one more... of our barn cat, "Lucy" She is a precious soul! Hey this one is for you Denise! She is a CAT LOVER! LOL

Good Night!

It's Sunday and it's raining...Now if anyone knows me, they know that I absolutely love the rain. I'm so not the Summer person, however...I've been told that I need to get more Vitamin D in me by my friend. LOL A little sun won't hurt anyone. I told her that I will get my sun from planting my flowers! So by the looks of the shop here.... I think I'll be good with the Vitamin D! I just love shops like this... they are so inviting and just screams..... PLANT ME, PLANT ME, PLANT ME! I took this picture while we were walking the side streets in Paris, France. Amazing City... everyone should see Paris at least once in their lifetime!

Yesterday, I went to my girlfriends studio and what a great time we had. She changed her studio and made it brighter and it looks really, really big now, AND as usual, I went home went home with bags of goodies.... She is just way cool!

I'm very proud of her for getting her art out and getting it published. She got invited by Michael deMeng and Judy to have her pieces sold at an Art Show in Colorado this year. She has to have the pieces done in a month... God Bless her. When the Muse takes her...look out! When that happens, I won't be going to her studio because she'll be up for a week and things will be a flying. LOL She is also waiting to hear from Art Doll Quarterly if she got the Cover. Keep your fingers crossed for her...she has worked very hard for the past 20 years and time is due!
You can check out her BLOG at http://www.wadsworthnollstudio.blogspot.com/

Well I'm going to go have my JAVA and figure out the days events...I might stay in the studio today or I just might sit outside on the porch and watch the rain all day with a good book!
Enjoy, Dance, Sing, and Tell Someone Today ...YOU LOVE THEM!
Be Well and CHEERS TO ALL!

Good Evening Folks...how is everyone doing? I thought I would post my newest creation from my EB line. EB stands for "Eclectic Being." I do custom orders and have some already made waiting for a home and someone to love. Check out my ETSY Shop at http://www.crowhavenfarm.etsy.com./

Should you wish to have a Custom Order, please email me at michelleschaferstudio@gmail.com or visit my websites as stated above. Well this new EB's name is "Janine." She was a customed ordered and will be given as a special birthday gift on Saturday, April 19, 2008 at her Jazzercize Class. Not sure how to spell that, but you know what I'm saying! LOL Janine came out absolutely amazing. What a presious soul she is. She even received a custom hand-made box so she would have something to lay in and keep her warm until she meets her new owner! However, from the picture here, Mr. Dough Boy in the background will certainly miss her! He was just getting up the courage to ask her out for a spot of tea!

I hope you all had a wonderful day. Did you tell people in your life how much you love them? If not.... Do it! Live, Love, Laugh, and Appreciate everything given to you and CREATE EVERYDAY!
Good Night.... and CHEERS TO ALL!

Ok, I'm not sure if there is a rule on blogging, but I had to post again. Check out these beautiful flowers that Lori Remaly from Precious Flowers located at 570 Chestnut Street, Emmaus, PA GAVE ME! Her website is www.preciousflowers.com. Lori just opened up her own flower shop so if you are in area and are in need of flowers or plants, please stop in and say hello!


This is a great picture I found on Flicker Photographs. I sure wish I could find a sewing machine like this one. I would put it with all the rest of the antiques we have, or better yet...get it work so I could use! Then I would two (2)!

Well I'm getting ready for the Spring and I have started to clean out my studio and revamp it. My girlfriend has been doing this for the past month or so, so I'm a little behind her! I can't wait to see it. Going over for some studio time on Saturday...hope to accomplish some new designs for my EBs and sew some clothes for them.
This picture here of this wonderful looking studio is a dream of mine... Kudos to the person who has this studio! Love it.

I just bought a ton of fabric from www.ruralfabric.blogspot.com. Check out her website at ruralFABRIC.etsy.com. Mindy is selling this fabulous fabric from Amy Butler. I can't wait to start my sewing lessons on Wednesday. Also, check back often at Mindy's site because she is always adding new fabric... Man I can't wait to see what she is getting in! You just have to LOVE AMY BUTLER FABRIC... I LOVE ALL FABRIC!!!!!!!

I've been sewing my doll clothes, but now I'm moving up into the big girl sewing. I'll be making some Amy Butler Skirts and the Dress Tunic. Can't wait to post the pictures. I might even model them....LOL
I hope you all had a wonderful day and that you created something fantastic!

Dream Car!

Ok, this is my dream car...I really, really want to get this car! I don't think I can wait for another 10 years. LOL I took this picture when we were in Paris last March, 2007. Now that the weather is getting warmer, I see this car every where.

Just thought I'd pop in to say hello...because it looks like it's going to be another crazy week. My girlfriend and I are finalizing the details for our Workshop With Wendy Froud.. Man, I can't wait to be able to talk to her and see what she has been up to lately.

Be Well Everyone and CHEERS TO ALL!
Now I think I'll have a glass of WINE!
