SympleTymes is back!!!!!

Well--P SympleTymes is back tada!!!  after a time off from creating Primitive and Folk Art and Vintage... I am back in to creating once again..Life is a funny thing...You always go back to where your true passion and Love started .... No matter in what area of life..Even some thing as  simple  as a hair style!
I took time off to learn quilting and all the wonderful colors.and
techniques. I will continue in this new journey of learning quilting. I am making two mug rugs for a swap I have signed up for. Also have created a couple of Lap Quilts , I am actually proud of..But I have been feeling  like I am missing old friends who want to come to life, That being  my humble interpretation of Primitive , FolkArt, Vintage..Like so many unfortunately  I to had my my heart broken with a couple of doll makers who not only have helped me over many years but also taught in area's I sure needed growth, Though  I will always support them, They are good people, but the internet lacks allot in communications...at one point I was so devastated  by this couple of people and our 16 year friendship...at one point I said I would never again create a doll..To much of my surprise I have had many people ask where I was..and also orders for my type of dolls..Whoa!! I feel God has given ALL Talents and gifts and this one is one of mine.Creating Primitive Folk-Art Dolls and Vintage..So...I am creating once again!!
Besides just joining a Mug Rug Swap and working Part-Time I have started back  where I belong..
I am using the patterns of a very dear friend from years ago who took me under her wing and heart.Janena .My friend Who believed in me and encouraged me, I have on my sewing room wall a gift she made just for me. .I will take a picture and share
later.. She made me feel like never give up, I hold her to this day as a very close friend in my heart always and for ever..It is so awesome how one person can touch and make anothers life so rich..  "JANENA BARTRAM OF ANTIQUEANNIES"

I am SO Blessed to own 32 of her awesome one of a kind pattern's
I am creating her Anna Louise - a 26" cloth doll designed to look like an antique doll

ANTIQUESANNIES BY JANENA BARTRAM ARE PATTERNS THAT REPRESENT THE DOLLS OF YESTERYEAR...HER PATTERNS ARE TIMELESS!
