Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirtroad Team - Wild Lilac Design and Crafty PA

Welcome friends!  It has been a long time since I have done a post for the Dirtroad Team.  I have been very busy with basket orders and re cane a rocker for a lady.  The rocker was her great grandmothers, so this was one project you did not rush on.  So enough about me and please visit our new members.  Pamela from Wild Lilac Design she is out newest member to join the team.  Her creativity has been in sewing, painting, pottery and the latest is jewelry.  She says her creativity goes in cycles.  That is the best part of being creative it just flows from one form to another.  Check her shop announcement for specials that she is offering.  Enjoy looking at her wonderful lampwork beads and chainmaille work.


The next shop is also a new member. Come and met Carol from Crafty PA. This creative lady uses what is around her to make her art. Her quill aluminum cans are turned into snowflakes, sun catchers, and picture frames. Her rugs are made from recycled plastic bags. She even has one that looks like a sock monkey! They can be used indoors or out, and the best part they can be washed with the hose. You can wash them in the machining machine, but I like the idea of using the hose in the summer!

They are many great and talented artist living on a dirt road or small town. If you are one of them please come and join us. Type "drat dirtroadteam" into the search bar on Etsy for more shops.
